I have a Linksys AE1000, which accordingly is supported by the RT3572 Driver. I noticed the rt2x00 has support for it, so I added the relevant information (hopefully this is all)

And it successfully detects it, creates wlan0. However, it seems it is unusable. I receive
[code1rag80e0] RTNETLINK answers: Unknown error 132[/code1rag80e0]when trying to bring it up. Any advise, pointers, etc will be greatly appreciated.

Error 132 is RFKILL, is there a RFKILL switch on your laptop/computer which might be enabled?
Also rt3572 is no fully supported by rt2800usb yet, so don't expect to much results yet with this driver (

Excellent! Progress, [codesppxq8po]grep "" `find /sys -not -type d -regex '.*rf.*?kill.*'`[/codesppxq8po] returned rfkills. I set the soft to 0, which puts the state into 1. Now [codesppxq8po]RTNETLINK answers: Protocol error[/codesppxq8po] I also attached the errors that were reported... If any additional info, etc is desired to help, let me know. Edit btw, This is a standalone PC (not a laptop)
