Hi,

Before the installation the signal was near to 60%.

What I could do to get the usb rt d-link work properly?

Thank you very much!

You could have first read IMPORTANT READ BEFORE POSTING!!![/urlxgjpavek] before asking help for a driver downloaded elsewhere.
You could have read files included in the archive, that surely mentioned the solution.
Using the magical [url=http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB/search.phpxgjpavek]Search button[/urlxgjpavek], you certainly found some answers.
But, it's Christmas...
Your problems probably come from loading two drivers for the same device. rt2570 (legacy driver) and rt2500usb (in-kernel driver).
Imagine your device as a car with only one driver seat and two people wanting to drive. In most movies, it ends by a crash.
That's the reason why, before using the legacy driver, you need to blacklist (or remove) the new in-kernel driver.
Obviously, the opposite is true.

I don't know how it's done in Debian but , if there is a file named blacklist in folder /etc/modprobe.d, you have only to add a line [color=#0000BFxgjpavek]blacklist rt250usb[/colorxgjpavek] in it and reboot.

In the rt2570-k2wrlz-1.6.3.tar.bz2 file have a file named FAQ where I found the link http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ

In that site, I found this one
[code233fdyn1]
Q. How do I get help ?
A. Check out our support forum and mailing lists. We monitor both and will be able to offer assistance on any problems you have.

Here I am!

Yes! I read those files (see previous answer), and some post here and I did a search with "rt2570"; after with "low signal" and not found any answer! Please, believe!

I love you! D

I am in the College and, at home, when I can back, I will try the blacklist (yes, Debian have one blacklist and I known where it is /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist).

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Thank you very much!!!!
