Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hmmm...at the moment, I'm in the same room as the router, so about perfect levels would be:
ra0 Ralink STA ESSID:"Your Network ID" Nickname:"RT3572STA"
Mode:Managed Frequency=2.462 GHz Access Point: [MAC Address]
Bit Rate=54 Mb/s
RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
Link Quality=100/100 Signal level:-63 dBm Noise level:-63 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Play around in wicd or whatever network manager you have installed. Does your friend's wireless network have SSID: "11n-AP"? Sounds like you just need to configure the wireless connection at this point. If that doesn't work, I've done some tweaks to the original guide, so maybe check back and see if there are any of the added steps that help.
ok even after blacklisting rtusb2500 it still loads that as the driver i am pretty sure thats what is nerfing my connection from 54mb to 1 mb so i am starting from scratch and trying it over again if you know of a way to make it read the right one that would be perfect but will let you know in an hour or two how it worked out. And thanks for all the help not just for me but for everyone who has to go through this
I think 11n-AP is some internal short form for "802.11n-Access Point" It's the default until you connect. If you notice, I got the same thing when disconnected.
Some reading I've done suggests removing the modules with "rmmod" or "modprobe -r". You could also remove/rename the .ko files. The manual pages have some more reading. "man rmmod", "man modprobe", "man locate", etc.
"locate rt2500usb" will give you the location of the file, likely...
I've got my machine all repartitioned to allow for multi-booting Windows and as many Linux distros as I care to install. I tested with Fedora 12 and DUDE! Unpack driver...change 2 config files...make...make install...configure wireless connection...DONE! No blacklisting, no module configuring, no adding packages, nothing else! Easy!
Yup! I retried Ubuntu after installing the final release of 10.04 and it was almost as painless. It basically worked right out of the box....errr...installation disc. There were no added packages or anything needed to compile & install the driver, and blacklisting the drivers was enough - I didn't need to actually remove them.
impressive... i'm not a linux master ..oh well.. my competence is very low xd but i found the post of BabyStuey the best answer i ever found on internet and explained very well... people like him are needed to linux to be spreaded more than now
well.. after this... ehm... my Nic doesnt works... i'm still doing some test.
pratically i'm with Ubuntu 10.04 and my card starts after reboot... sometimes reached to see other networks..sometimes no.
when i try to connect to a network the computer freezes for some seconds then says "impossible to obtain Ip address" (dhcp is configured).
my MB is a Intel D201GLY (i will post in another thread the unfamous problem with sis662 videocard) so do not expect a quadcore, but scares me to see sometimes the computer freezing.
i would like to know whether the devices,
1.Linksys WUSB600N (802.11a/b/g/n compliant)
2.DLINK DWL-AG132 (802.11a/b/g compliant)
are being used on any Linux platforms(Redhat Enterprise Linux V5, Fedora 8/9, Ubuntu, SUSE etc).
If so,Are the device drivers available for download?
thanks in advance
ubuntu 10.04LTS----not working
Ubuntu 9.10 ------not working
ubuntu 9.04 ----------WORKS
Thanks to you I'm working from Xubuntu wirelessly with my WUSB600N network adapter! Thanks so much. The only reason I wasn't on linux was because I wasn't able to get my adapter working. You're the MAN! Lol
[QUOTE=BabyStuey;3940804]A present for everyone having trouble with the Cisco/Linksys Wireless-N USB Network Adapter with Dual-Band Version 2 (aka WUSB600N v2)!
Thanks, BabyStuey. I used your instructions and got my WUSB600N working on my 8 year old Dell 4100 laptop with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 and a PCMCIA USB card. Once it was done and rebooted it was very cool to see that blue light come on and the connection work as easily as it does under XP. Excellent!
I know this is an old thread now.. but I just have a couple quick questions. I'm running Ubuntu 10.4, and I didn't do Stu's tutorial yet. For a moment MSHOME wireless network was detected. That's the name of the network I use for file sharing, but the SSID of my wireless network is goatfarm. I failed to connect to it though. Does this mean that the adapter is working already and I don't need to do Stu's tutorial?
Also, when I run "lsusb" I get
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1737:0071 Linksys
and I noticed you guys had 1737:0079 so is this a problem?
You can probably tell I'm a huge noob.
