Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

Hi,
Thanks a lot, it saved me after two days troubleshooting to install usb rt3070 wireless device.
After these step , downloading and blah blah *rt3070* for rpm , my system suddenly shows wireless and i started update software etc.
Now the big problem...as i rebooted, wireless gone
i tried to do the same step as before , but it says the package is already installed. when i try to remove the package, it says it is not there...strange!!!
Just a output of few commands to know better is below.

Code:

In the Network configuration, under Devices tab, there is a profile that is checked but the status is
Inactive. This is of type Wireless and is created automatically when I first installed and setup the rt3070 device using website instruction after downloading rpm files and installing. I copied these to my desktop.

Code:
[rajani@brs ~]$ cd Desktop
[rajani@brs Desktop]$ ls

[rajani@brs Desktop]$ cd wireless
[rajani@brs wireless]$ ls -l

[rajani@brs wireless]$
Now the wireless worked and I can acess the internet. But when I rebooted, I am no where. The device is not recognized. The network icon at top right is crossed and does not list the wireless option like before. I think somewhere I need to setup those in the boot time files but not sure where?
Also when i try to install using root (do the same thing as before to install) it says

Code:
[root@brs wireless]# rpm -ivh *rt3070*.rpm

Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

I'm growing sick and tired of trying to make the D-Link DWA-140 work each time a new kernel/NetworkManager/driver for F14 is released.
For the last 3 kernels: 83, 88, 90 I always get a kernel oops and randomly the computer freezes. I'm thinking either to wire it or to get a PCI wireless card.

Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

Yes, this is the root cause. I have to update the respective [KEEP SHARP EYE ON EACH DIGITS IN VERSION...AT IT MATTERS A LOT - I learn this after long in fedora] rpm files.

get the rpm of rt3070 using google search and downloading (1/2 or 3 files max that are updated) to install with command
$su -
$rpm -ivh *rt3070*.rpm

Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

The rt3070 is not working for Dlink DWA-140 or Edimax EW-7718UN usb cards.
The rt2870 driver crashes the kernel so it has became useless for my configuration.
Finally I uninstalled any kmod-rt* and rt* package, removed the rt2800usb, rt2800lib, rt2x00usb, rt2x00lib from the blacklist and after a restart I have again a working connection!

Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

My system: Fedora 16 _x64, KDE desktop, latest 3.1.7-1 kernel.

I have a Belkin F5D8053 (Ralink RT2870) wireless USB dongle. Generally it works with the native rt2800usb driver. However - especially under load (that is when I have to transfer more data) it stops sending (or receiving) anything.

The weird part is that the NetworkManager does not signal any errors and shows that the connection is on, reports speed and all other good things. Nothing is being logged into /var/log/messages either. Everything looks legit on the surface but data can not be send. I can't ping any devices on the network nor receive anything. The only remedy is to manually disconnect/reconnect the network to get the communication going again.

It looks like the combination of transmission speed and amount of data triggers this behaviour. I could transfer ~1GB of stuff from the Internet (~150kB/sec) with only few incidents but can not transfer file ~200MB to another computer on the network (at 2MB/s). Typically connection will stop after ~10MB (the most I have managed was 150MB on a certain try).

I didn't have this problem for sure in Fedora 15 and the rt2870sta drivers (I can't be certain but I don't think I had this problem with the kernel from the F16 original distribution).

I tried to google things and read about this driver but I could not find anything. Any help to identify this problem would be greatly appreciated. Also, if someone has an idea how it might be possible to use the rt2870sta in Fedora 16 (or something similar) please let me know......

Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

Is there anyway to install rt3070sta module on Fedora 17 and upwards?

I can't find it anywhere:
http://pkgs.org/search/?keyword=rt3070

yum search rt3070
Warning: No matches found for: rt3070

modprobe rt3070sta
FATAL: Module rt3070sta not found.

Where to get rt3070 and how to install it for Fedora 17 and upwards?!?

Re: HOWTO: Native rt2860, rt2870 & rt3070 wireless drivers for Fedora

I downloaded latest Ralink driver and compiled it from their webpage: http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downl...ows.php?sn=501

After installing them and loading via "modprobe rt5370sta" I get ra0 wireless interface, but it looks it still doesn't work, networkmanager isn't showing anything.

This guy has solved it:
http://www.geekamole.com/2013/rt2800...-gentoo-linux/

But I'm not sure is this a bug in kernel driver or is this usb device wrongly presenting itself to the system?
