    [QUOTE=The_Denv;88507]Well I don't know what the increment should be, but if you increase it by 1dBi each time until it doesn't work; you will find your answer.

    Code:
    iwconfig rausb0 txpower 10
    Then increase it by 1dBi each time:
    Code:
    iwconfig rausb0 txpower 11
    It was ‘rate’ that I was interested in but I gave ‘txpower’ a go and ‘iwconfig’ said ‘Operation not supported’ Tried increments of ‘1M’ with ‘rate’ using ‘aireplay-ng -9 rausb0’. For what it is worth, found 1, 2 and 5 worked well, 3 & 4 and all above 5 with the exception 9 failed to inject. 9 worked some of the time.

    Strange!

    Ahh , sorry about the txpower command. Apparently its only supported on Ubuntu; I got the commands mixed up with a different Linux distro. So you are interested in the 'rate'?

    Code:
    $ iwconfig rausb0 rate 54M
    Is this what you mean? I am confused to what you want

    Yes this was the one, Only tried 1M to 10M and as you can see from previous post the results suggest that only some rates in this range will work. Not tried anything above 10M, I assume that as it is a 54Mb card it should be possible to use anything uo to 54M.

    Okay... Today I have spent alot of time with this and I can do everything except for connecting to wpa and Spoonwep. Further investigation has shown that everything works just fine once connected to an open/wep AP, however wpa still refuses to connect. I have tried the iwpriv commands I posted before, as well as some slightly different ones SV had posted in a different thread, and even tried to configure wpa_supplicant.conf (a flailing attempt, I know it doesnt work for our driver but it didnt take long and was worth a shot).

    After this I attempted to try different drivers. I downloaded the official one from Edimax and rt73-k2wrlz-2.0.1.tar.bz2, an earlier version of the current driver. This is where my latest problem begins.

    I cant seem to do a make install, every time I try to make install the driver (as instructed by the read me) I get the error listed below. I get a similar error when trying to make install the rt73-k2wrlz-2.0.1 driver as well.
    Code:
    bt ~ # cd /usr/src/RT73/2008_0117_RT73_Linux_STA_Drv1.1.0.0/Module
    bt Module # ls
    Configure                 connect.c         netif_block.h  rtmp_type.h
    Makefile                  ifcfg-rausb0      oid.h          rtmp_wep.c
    Makefile.4                iwpriv_usage.txt  rt73.bin       rtmp_wext.c
    Makefile.6                link_list.h       rt73.h         rtmp_wext.h
    Makefile.CMPC             load              rt73sta.dat    rtusb_bulk.c
    Module.symvers            md5.c             rt_config.h    rtusb_data.c
    README                    md5.h             rt_user.c      rtusb_io.c
    ReleaseNote               mlme.c            rtmp.h         sanity.c
    STA_iwpriv_ATE_usage.txt  mlme.h            rtmp_def.h     sync.c
    assoc.c                   mlme_ex.c         rtmp_info.c    unload
    auth.c                    mlme_ex.h         rtmp_init.c    wpa.c
    auth_rsp.c                mlme_ex_def.h     rtmp_main.c    wpa.h
    config.mk                 netif_block.c     rtmp_tkip.c
    bt Module # cp Makefile.6 ./Makefile
    bt Module # make install
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build \
            INSTALL_MOD_DIR=extra SUBDIRS=/usr/src/RT73/2008_0117_RT73_Linux_STA_Drv                                                                                                                         1.1.0.0/Module \
            modules_install
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [install] Error 2
    So now I am stumped, I have exhausted everything in my limited library of knowledge and nothing seems to work. Not even SpoonDrv can seem to download and install a driver. I am low on time today but later tonight I plan to google my make install problem and make sure its not a common issue.

    If anyone has any suggestions I will be glad to hear them and if I come across any solutions I will be sure to post back as well.

    I just edited the original post with all the solutions I have found. The card is working great for me now and I hope everyone finds equal success!

    Cortex, Thank you for replying. Since I only have an Edimax EW-7318, I did not realize when starting this thread that the rt73 driver was shared by multiple cards. To make things easier I had the name of the thread changed to reflect that this method works for anyone with the same rt73 driver.

    Hello.
    I followed the tuto, but when I did

    "iwpriv rausb0 set WPA2PSK=(my key)"

    it returned

    "Interface doesn't accept private ioctl...
    set (8BE2) : Invalid argument"

    What's the f___ ?

    My example says...
    iwpriv rausb0 set WPAPSK=<Your Key>
    and it seems you used
    "iwpriv rausb0 set WPA2PSK=(my key)"
    You only need to do WPA2PSK for
    Code:
    iwpriv rausb0 set AuthMode=WPAPSK (or WPA2PSK if you are using WPA2)
    Try it without the 2
