Re: RT2870 no longer works with 2.6.38 in testing

No my friend, they have taken the rt2870sta driver out completely. We are supposed to use the rt2x00 driver, but as we know it's rubish!!! I am still trying to compile the source from the Ralink website but I am having problems with this. Have tried multiple tutorials, and am currently trying to ex...

Re: RT2870 no longer works with 2.6.38 in testing

rt2800/rt2x00 drivers work, but not very well with rt2870. Speed fluctuations, drop outs, drop in signal strength. Find myself drawn back to Julia, witch is still using the rt2870ste driver (so fast and snappy!).... Will have to figure out how to compile the driver source from the Ralink website, ke...

romanybob, this may be related to your problem? http://osdir.com/ml/debian-bugs-dist/2011-03/msg06023.html I always needed the rt2860sta driver and always had problems getting it to work with 2.6.32.

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - read here first - Update 30 mar 2011

But when doing 'lsmod | grep rt2' got nothing? Un-blacklisted the whole lot & hot plugged. Wifi is now working but signal has dropped to 90%...
