Asus PCE-N13 can't see router


Hello everyone and thanks for taking the time to help me out.

I installed Slackware 13.37 a few days ago. It's not my first time but I have never setup a wireless connection in Linux before.

I am pretty sure drivers for my network card, Asus PCE-N13, came ready to go with Slackware. After 2 days of reading guides about how to properly setup my rc.inet1.conf and rc.wireless.conf files I've come to realize that I have no idea what I am doing and need help. I installed wicd today and it can't see my router.

Hi DrTardis, Welcome to LQ. Let's be sure the card is recognized and the modules loaded then we can tackle the connection. Please post the output from the following.

Code:
# lspci -v | grep -i net
# lsmod
# ifconfig -a
# iwconfig
Good luck. ;-)

Looks like you have several modules loaded for one device. Try blacklisting them two at a time and seeing which driver gives you the best performance. The rt2860sta, the rt2800pci, & the rt2x00pci are all different modules.

Good luck. ;-)

First and foremost thank you very much Peacedog your help was invaluable and you were very nice to me. While I was searching for how to blacklist a module I came across a blog of someone who had the PCE-N13 they listed 4 modules for me to blacklist and so I did. Just like you said it worked great. I haven't done this before but I'll try and post a sort of summary of the problem and solution for others with similar hardware. Thanks again

Problem: Asus PCE-N13 is recognized by Slackware 13.37 but doesn't work
Solution: Blacklist conflicting modules as shown http://erikugel.wordpress.com/2011/0...eless-adapter/
