" is most likely going to involve a crash course in CLI" said ardvark71 and I tend to agree.


Might simple be easier to buy a supported model.?

But, if you are like most of us, we will keep at it.

One of the posts suggested you need an update/patch for Ubuntu.

Sigh. Raylink firmware already comes in Linux lite. Posted by a LL user earlier. Whose post was ignored.

Code:
:~$ lsusb | grep Ralink
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 07d1:3c0a D-Link System DWA-140 RangeBooster N Adapter(rev.B2) [Ralink RT3072]
:~$ sudo dmesg | grep firmware
[sudo] password for :

[   26.015294] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Info - Firmware detected - version: 0.29
Code:
~$ ping 8.8.8.8
PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) 56(84) bytes of data.

But like in cool hand luke.

what we have here is a failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. Like this fellar we had in here the other day. He wanted it his way, and that was the way he got it.
We don't need no stinking patches. My raylink works out of the box.

Hi...

Mine didn't and I have the same exact chip as the OP, hence, my advice. What I tried to offer the OP was the solution that worked for me.

Well then, backing out of this thread so you can get him online then.

Hope that helps.
Ztcoracat: I tried this and the result is just that linux-firmware-nonfree is already the newest version so nothing is upgraded or newly installed. Thanks

Hi ardvark71. I tried this and because of my lack of linux knowledge and skills was unsuccessful. Here's what happened. As you can see, I tried skipping the patch because I didn't know how to proceed with it. Then for some reason I don't understand, my sudo password was not accepted. (I typed it carefully, one character at a time.):

As you can see, there is no mention of any Ralink firmware. I've just upgraded to Linux Lite 2.6 also, so I'm as up to date as I can be.

Just upgraded to Linux Lite 2.6 so am completely up to date. Still no wireless.

Ok, First question that should have been asked in this thread was did you md5sum check your downloaded iso of Linux-Lite 2.4 before installing it to your computer? >>>Don't ignore this questios as it is important to answer truthfully.

2nd thing

trying to install a RealTek USB WiFi adapter
? Which is it. Realtek or RaLink?

I am not trying to be hard on you. But Linux-Lite has a forum and the developer answers questions as well as Linux Lite team Members.
Just wondering why I do not see you posting there?
You would probably be on line wirelessly by now.
Have you even used the Help Manual In the Linux Lite Menu?

Linux-Lite is tweaked to be easy for migrating Windows users to handle Linux. They have that as their mission philosophy.
So it has stuff that Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, does not have. Added by team members.
So go to the source, Luke. You won't regret it.

Because you have seen my posts in Linux-Linux Lite with a Ralink Wireless N usb made by D Link and it works right of the box.
Hence my question about md5sum.

Hi...

I highly doubt it will work without the patch. Once you get the password issue figured out and you check out the md5sum, try it again. This time, include the patch. When it says...

Code:
Skip this patch? [y]
hit the "n" key. Follow the instructions exactly as I gave you here....

Code:
Do not connect the USB:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic build-essential  
tar xjf DPO_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.4_20130913.tar.bz2  
cd DPO_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.4_20130913/  
patch -p0 < ~/(ADD THE PATH)/rt2870-mt7601Usta-kuid_t-kgid_t.patch  
make  
su -c 'mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/'  
su -c 'cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat'  

Connect the USB

su -c '/sbin/insmod os/linux/mt7601Usta.ko'
EDIT: I had a second look at your output. Please note that where it says "ADD THE PATH," replace that with the actual location of the file. For example, if the patch file is located on your desktop, then the command would look like this...

Code:
patch -p0 < ~/Desktop/rt2870-mt7601Usta-kuid_t-kgid_t.patch
Let us know how it goes...

Regards...

Hey rokytnji. I don't take anything you say badly. I would be (should have been?) the first to say that I don't really know much about Linux. I don't even know what md5sum is, so I think it's fair to say that I didn't do that.

As for the brand of the wireless adapter, I don't know for sure. Neither the ad nor the packaging indicated a brand name. The best information in that regard is probably the lsusb result:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
brian@brian-laptop:~$

Which clearly indicates Ralink.

I also didn't know that there's a Linux Lite forum, although if I'd thought I suppose I would have guessed it. I came here first simply because it came up early in a google search and has a newbie forum.

The Help Manual was the first place I went for help.

Cheers

Ok. Since you have the cd which holds the driver.

The adapter came with a CD with a Linux driver, but I don't know how to install it


Join and post here on what you have learned so far. Here is hoping you do not have a corrupted Linux Lite iso install. Hence the md5sum question I asked.

They will walk you through the cd linux driver install. You should have wireless working in a day or 2.
