You should think about configuring your computer with the authentication-data for you wireless network. Without that the connection cannot be established.

As far as I can see from all your posts, your hardware is working, there's no need to configure anything hardware-related.

First lets unload the athos driver;
Quote:
modprobe -r ath5k
modprobe -r mac80211
modprobe -r cfg80211
next lets load the rt driver:
Quote:
modprobe rt2800usb
next lets see if your usb wireless is detected
Quote:
ifconfig -a
If not then it is the wrong driver and need to try another driver.

I believe the hardware address is the atheros native to the computer and it doesnt work because
the hardware switch is blown... I want the ralink as wlan0 and I believe Atheros occupation of
WLAN is blocking me...
i dont think there is anything wrong with having 2 wifi adapters running on the same system (it would essentially be the same as having 2 ethernet nics on the same system).
i would assume the usb one would check in as wlan1 ?
