I have already tried that. Same result!!
Could you please post the tar command you are using to extract the files? Could give us a clue as to what is happening.
OK I have repeated the process. file was downloaded to /root and extracted (using Ark)to the same directory. Heres the output in full.
bt ~ # modprobe -r rt73
bt ~ # cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1/module
-bash: cd: rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1/module: No such file or directory
bt ~ # ls
Desktop/ my\ mac\ etc~ rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1.tar.bz2
new\ xorg.conf wifizoo_black_v1.3/
bt ~ #
Got it!!! Should have been cd'ing to rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1 directory and then to Module!
That'll teach me to take any command at face value without thinking things thru!
Thanks for your help anyway.
Just tested my Edimax 7318 out and it works perfectly!! I'd recommend the latest driver to anyone else having trouble with an Rt73 chipset card/dongle.
# iwpriv rausb0 set AuthMode=WPA2PSK
# iwpriv rausb0 set WPAPSK=c00e7508e81349c29200ea0fcfbc11b56df555a9b78 fb24a300950b7f584de71
# iwpriv rausb0 set EncrypType=AES
# iwconfig rausb0
rausb0 RT73 WLAN ESSID:"2WIRE018"
Mode:Managed Frequency=2.437 GHz Bit Rate=11 Mb/s
RTS thrff Fragment thrff
Link Quality=39/100 Signal level:-80 dBm Noise level:-143 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
So I did something wrong, but I am not sure what. I am using version 3.02 of the driver.
I like the bleeding edge, but I don't like blood loss
secure_it thnx allot,your manuall & patch rt73 sovled all my problems!!!!!
