sudo modprobe -v rt3562sta


It sometimes takes a min or so to come active

If it does we need to add a blacklist for rt2800pci

Output from sudo modprobe -rv rt2800pci is;

rmmod /lib/modules/3.0.0-30-generic-pae/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt2800pci.ko
rmmod /lib/modules/3.0.0-30-generic-pae/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt2800lib.ko
rmmod /lib/modules/3.0.0-30-generic-pae/kernel/lib/crc-ccitt.ko

rmmod /lib/modules/3.0.0-30-generic-pae/kernel/drivers/misc/eeprom/eeprom_93cx6.ko


No output from sudo modprobe -v rt3562sta, tried it 3 times.

These should have worked, assuming we are on the right track

Go here: /etc/modprobe.d
And right click open as admin this file
blacklist.conf

At the end add the line:

blacklist rt2800pci

And save
Then reboot

Yes ! you're a star ! Thanks for your help with this, I couldn't have done it without you.

As soon as I rebooted the connection was recognised and it connected automatically. So it seems that the wrong Kernel Module was installed automatically then, I wish there was a better way to deal with this issue or at least some other way to discover this error but it's all sorted now anyway so I'll mark this thread as [SOLVED]

Thanks again for your efforts, I really do appreciated it.

Cheers

Ian
