Hello guys!

I have a problem with my rt2500. I can not find any networks with RutilT or "iwlist wlan0 scan". But I am sure that there are 6-8 networks.

I had no problems by compiling the module or install. The modules of the kernel for this card are blacklisted correctly
I load the modul with modprobe rt2500.
Then ifconfig wlan0 up for weaking up the card.
lsmod show me, that the module is loaded.

My OS is Ubuntu 7.10

If the interface is named "wlan0", then you're not using rt2500, but rt2500pci (rt2x00). There may be something wrong with your blacklist. Try to manually remove modules with "modprobre -r rt2500pci".

Romain, you forget about udev and naming of interfaces. I have a udev rule that names the interface created by the legacy driver wlan3...

Only the presence of wmaster0 is real evidence of rt2x00 being used. Another hint could come from 'lsmod' if that lists either rt2500pci or rt2500 (or both).

You are right, I completely overlooked that.
