thanks markus,

I got the rt3090 driver from the website, but i cannot configure it,
Quote:
make -C tools
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/amila/Download/RT3090/tools'
gcc -g bin2h.c -o bin2h
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/amila/Download/RT3090/tools'
/home/amila/Download/RT3090/tools/bin2h
cp -f os/linux/Makefile.6 /home/amila/Download/RT3090/os/linux/Makefile
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.38-ARCH/build SUBDIRS=/home/amila/Download/RT3090/os/linux modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38-ARCH/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [LINUX] Error 2
I think I might need to install kernel sources or some thing. I will get back to you if I could resolve that issue.
thank you very much.

But the output of your post #14 showed that there is a module loaded, I'd not use other driver unless you'll find in the documentation of Arch that someone was successfull with it.

Another possibility to check the module is if you have a live-CD, for example Mint or Ubuntu, if it connects, you can check (with lspci -k and lsmod) which modules there are in use.

possibly you'll have to configure this driver as root?

when im using debian it works well with rt2860sta also, but after I put rt2860sta in to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and do a modprobe rt3090sta will load the rt3090sta driver and works well.
So Im not sure if its correct in Arch, but I insert rt2860sta to /etc/rc.conf file's:

Quote:
MODULES=(fuse !rt2860sta)

and run modprobe rt3090sta.
But still I cannot connect to the wireless.

Well, I think if Debian on the same computer works well with the rt2860sta module, I'd recommend to use the same module with Arch.

If you can connect to your wireless network with Debian, I'd suggest to check, how exactly Debian connects, which programs and tools and how they are configured. I think the same programs should be available for Arch.

I did a reinstallation of Arch linux 32 bit, and I was able to connect to wireless. also I had to change /etc/rc.conf file and add "rt3090sta" to Modules.

MODULES=(.. rt3090sta ..)
