Ubuntu

Comment 19 for bug 460323

Having the same problem.

System: ubuntu 9.10, kernel 2.6.31
Device: encore enuwi-n3

Initial condition:
I was getting my devices listed as wlan0, but it was unable to find networks.

What I did first:

1. Blacklisted both rt2780sta and rt2800usb
-> NO Wireless at ALL

What I did later:

1. Tried to compile new rt2870 driver
-> Compiler errors

And then:

1. Blacklisted rt2800usb driver
2. Load rt2780sta
-> NO Wireless at ALL

And finally:

1. Blacklisted rt2800usb driver
3. Compile rt2870 with patch applied (success)
2. Load rt2780sta
-> NO Wireless at ALL

Now there is only a chance to try: reinstall the WHOLE system as indicated by WiseGuy1020..

But is this really necessary??? I am thinking in buying several meters of UTP cable instead...

Please help.
