Driver: Ralink RT3092

Post by Vilduha » Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:11 pm

Hello guys!

I'm unable to activate my wifi network. I've updated everything from "update manager" and I've done some google'ing, but can't seem to find a solution :(

I'm running Mint 18.3
Computer: HP hpe-555sc

Anyone got some tips? Thanks in advance :)

Try

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
Then reboot and see if wifi power management causes this problem

Nope, it did not do anything.
Strange thing tho; if I turn off the computer with the "power button 5 sec" -way, wifi works when I turn it back on. But not if I turn it off or restart it normally through the menu :S

NOTE: WIFI also works if I turn off computer normally, its only when I do menu->quit->restart it doesn't work :? Maybe the power management did something?

Can you change the settings on the wifi router to wireless B/G rather than B/G/N? Then see if it works

I changed the router to only B/G, but it didn't do anything.

The strange thing is;
Menu->quit->restart = wifi not working at all
Menu->quit->shut down = wifi working just fine

Hi, Vildua
I searched for the Ralink wireless driver in the following link: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers which told me it is not supported at all.
Please, consider the advice to buy a dongle and you could save a lot of time. The further improvements on the Linux kernel could solve this problemas, meanwhile we may have to be patient.
Regards,
