Okay, I upgraded my Ubuntu kernel from 2.6.32-21-generic (default in 10.04/LL) to 2.6.35.22-generic (default in 10.10/MM) and I got the same thing as you did. Drivers 2.3.0.0 and 2.4.0.2 both break using kernel 2.6.32 in Ubuntu. Working to see if there's a solution, but in the mean time, perhaps you can downgrade for the time being?

Thanks for confirming the issue. Do you know where to report?

Can't revert to 10.04 because of regular system freezes which I have not experienced in 10.10.

Thumbs up Thank to BabyStuey for the Quick Guide on Wusb600N

Hi,

I loaded up on my Netbook Asus EeePC 1000 SSD EasyPeasy 1.6 and then Linux Mint 9 Fluxbox. In both cases almost everything worked out well except for Wireless. I do not know what is the exact issue with wireless with Ubuntu 10.04 on EeePC but for mine we tried in many ways to make the Wireless connection to work with both distributions and no luck.

We were able to get hold of Wireless-N USB adapter model WUSB600N, we applied the 13 steps provided by BabyStuey and it worked very well. Thanks to BabyStuey for a job well done.

I've been trying to follow the guide on the first page of the thread and have learned a lot and worked pretty hard doing so, then I check this page and see that the v2.4.0.2 driver doesn't work with kernel 2.6.35-22-generic anyway! Was a solution to this problem ever found? I suppose I'll just downgrade for now as suggested if not.

Either way thank you very much for the guide!

So I have been trying to compile this driver and this is what I am getting:

mark@ubuntu:~$ cd '/home/mark/Desktop/2010_1215_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO '
mark@ubuntu:~/Desktop/2010_1215_RT35...A_v2.5.0.0.DPO $ make
make -C tools

make: /home/mark/Desktop/2010_1215_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO: Command not found
make: *** [build_tools] Error 127



So how do I fix this error? I am very very new to linux. I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I have all the gcc packages

Any help would be much appreciated Thank you!

Hi Mark,

Do you have a space at the end of your folder name? You're getting a "command not found" error when the script is trying to run bin2h. Try renaming the folder to see if that works (using F2 or right-click > rename like in Windoze is probably easiest, but from the command line (as mark):
Code:
cd ~/Desktop
mv 2010_1215_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO\  2010_1215_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO
(Just to clarify that's a backslash followed by two spaces in the middle there.)
See if that works.

I just tried the newest release of the driver (2.5.0.0.DPO) with Ubuntu kernel 2.6.35.22-generic (default in 10.10/MM) and it works fine. Again, the older drivers 2.3.0.0 and 2.4.0.2 both break using this kernel version in Ubuntu.

Good luck!

Ok so I complied the driver and did the sudo make install then did step 7 and 8 but the adapter still won't respond?? does it mean anything if in my network connections it says firmware missing device not ready. because Ubuntu has said that since I installed it with no modifications. it does recognize when I unplug it and plug it back in but can't search or connect to any network. so basically not sure what I am doing wrong and I am not giving you alot to go off of but any direction would be helpful.

Stu just going through this thread has been very helpful to me whether I get this to work or not thank you for you time and explaining things clearly.

much appreciated

I've found that if the driver compiles and installs correctly, it's time to start looking for other reasons why things aren't working correctly. I'd first connect to a wired connection and do those updates to see if that fixes anything. If the firmware message has been present since you installed Ubuntu, including before you installed the wireless driver, it may be an issue with another network device (Bluetooth, Ethernet, etc.). A quick Google turned up a problem similar to what you describe with a Broadcom b43 firmware issue (this isn't related to the WUSB600N). Perhaps a thread like this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1638480 will help point you in the right direction?

See if that helps and let me know!

Problems...

I restarted my computer after all the steps you gave me Baby Stuey. But then I did get Wifi but it won't connect. It keeps showing enter Wifi Password. I am entering the right password since it does for my laptop(Windows 7). The password is WEP 128. Any help? It shows Wire Connection - disconnected and keeps showing the "Enter Password for Wifi" window...Please help or else my dad will make to go back to slow XP which I hate.

Try (temporarily) removing the WEP encryption from your wireless connection and see if you can connect on an open wireless connection. If that works, you'll have to re-enable your wireless security and perhaps tune the security settings a bit. Sounds to me like you have your adapter working, but it's now just a matter of tweaking your router/connection settings to make it all work together.

Good luck!
