Hi. I just installed Testing on a new machine, so it's running2.6.38-2-amd64 #1.
2T/2R PCIe [1814:3092]
I cant seem to get my wireless card working at all. The card is:
$ lspci -nn | grep Network
05:00.0 Network controller : Ralink corp. RT3092 Wireless 802.11n
by the rt2860sta driver, and the wiki page on that driver says to install
The page http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi says that the RT3092 card is supported
wireless-tools and firmware-ralink. I did this. But wireless still doesn't show
up, ifconfig and iwconfig don't show that any wireless thing exists. If i try
to load module directly:
$ sudo modprobe rt2860sta
FATAL: Module rt2860sta not found.
even though firmware-ralink is installed.
Is there something i need to do to activeate this card?
Thank you and sorry for newbish question!
Thanks to both people who pointed this out. This module wasnt loaded by default
but it worked with modprobe, so i put it into
/etc/modules and its working now.
The one problem is that i dont see any sign of my 802.11n network. Its only
seeing the 2.4GHz G network. A Ubuntu machine with an Intel 5100
AGN card does see the 5GHz network. But this is probably a different problem so
i will play with it for a bit an ask again in the right thread.
