The drivers seem loaded fine, I connect to my network (5GHz N) no problem, and disconnecting and then reconnecting fixes the issue temporarily. I also ran apt-get install ralink-firmware which didn't seem to solve anything.
What confuses me is that this doesn't seem to occur on LM14, various Ubuntu spins, Fedora or Fuduntu, just LMDE.
dmesg doesn't seem to say anything different once the drop happens, just one line that seems to be there since boot:
Code: Select all
phy0 -> rt2800pci_mcu_status: Error - MCU request failed, no response from hardware
Any input would be appreciated, thanks.
