What is the correct driver?
I recently bought the [b1dvg40m5]D Link DWA-110 Wireless G USB adapter[/b1dvg40m5] and I have plugged in my [b1dvg40m5]Dell Inspiron 2200[/b1dvg40m5] running openSuse 10.3. The USB Adapter is detected by Linux but it doesn't work. The device is listed on Yast as a usb device, but not as a networkdevice. I just tryied EVERYTHING I had read throught the Internet trying to see it working, but nothing resolve!
First of all, I would like to know what's the correct driver that I have to download from this [url1dvg40m5]http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html[/url1dvg40m5].
Can somebody help me?
Well for starters any driver downloaded from http//www.ralinktech.com/
isn't supported by us. So if you want drivers from that website than you should ask support on that website.
If you want support from us you need either the in-kernel rt2x00 drivers or the drivers downloaded from our website.
Secondly I have no idea what chipset is inside "D Link DWA-110 Wireless G USB adapter" so I think you should post the output of 'lsusb' first, then I can see which driver might be required for it.
Hello, IvD. Thanks for reply my post.
Well, the output of the lsusb command is the following
Bus 005 Device 001 ID 00000000
Bus 003 Device 001 ID 00000000
Bus 002 Device 001 ID 00000000
Bus 001 Device 001 ID 00000000
Bus 004 Device 002 ID 07d13c07 D-Link System
Bus 004 Device 001 ID 00000000
I hope this information help you to identify what the correct device driver I have to install.
Thank you again.
You'll need the rt73 driver.
Your device has a rt73 chipset, so you need rt73usb (rt2x00) OR the legacy rt73.
Following the instalation instructions from the Readme file of the rt2x00 driver, i got this problem after the Make command
make Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-22.214.171.124-31-obj/i386/default'
make -C ../../../linux-126.96.36.199-31 O=../linux-188.8.131.52-31-obj/i386/default modules

make Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206-31-obj/i386/default'
rt2570.ko failed to build!
make *** [module] Error 1
This error stops the instalation. I dont know what could be happens, cos i have installed the softwares necessary for compilation, listed below
But when i try to compile...it crashs..
Can somebody send me a tip?
Well, this is unrelated to the problem you're having, but you grabbed the wrong driver, you need the rt73 one, not rt2570, they are different devices.
Thank you guys,
I just use de correct driver rt73, and follow the instructions in the README file, then everything has work correctly. Thank you very very very much! You great!
