    I've installed and updated the drivers in different ways quite a few times.
    But I can't seem to get the card up and running.

    Ive been at this for quite a few days now, after reading that it's possible to run 2 wireless cards, and can't seem to google my way to it, So if you have any directions for getting my wireless usb adapter up and running, I'd really appreciate it!



    Thanks for having a look!

    Default Re: Wireless usb adapter

    I did read on aircrack-ng that the rt2870 is not a stable driver.
    Have you tried to go to ralinktech.com and compile the driver yourself?

    Hello Flaming!

    Yes, Ive tried before and i re-tried again now after finding newer drivers, but i get an error message:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ive tried the below but with the same outcome...

    root@bt:~ ln -s /usr/src/linux /lib/modules/2.6.30.9/build

    Still very open to suggestions!

    Thanks for having a look!

    Bringing some more info to the thread and confirming that i have the rt2870 drivers installed:
    Can't find the interface Ra0 tho..
