    Default Encore ENUWI-N Wireless USB Adapter

    Hi, I want to know if anyone else has this adapter and can get it to work properly. According to the manufacturer's website, I don't see any Linux driver support. However, I found some info. that states this is an RALink chipset. BT4 recognizes it as the following:

    Code:
    ra0       RT2870 Wireless  ESSID:""  Nickname:"RT2870STA"
              Mode:Auto  Frequency=2.437 GHz  Bit Rate=1 Mb/s
              RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Link Quality=100/100  Signal level:0 dBm  Noise level:-87 dBm
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    -I have WPA2 enabled on my TrendNET Wireless N router, and I can connect to it using an old Belkin 54Mbs USB device. Even though I use Wicd manager to set the password, it doesn't seem to set it properly. I have tried the guide by apocolipse269, but the drivers failed to install. Any help would be appreciated!

    Sincerely,
    CoMpuLs1^e

    Default

    That is not a driver/hardware issue, that is an user issue. ra0 shows you that there is already an interface for which you can call it to do whatever you want and it will tell the device to do whatever you requested.

    WPA2 can be problematic as I have heard for some chipsets, but try using console method of connecting to the wireless network, such as using wpa_supplicant

    FYI: ra0 interface appears to be ralink-sta driver.. and rt2870 denotes ralink 802.11n which means that this is the vendor (ralink's) driver.

    Default latest driviers

    hatake_kakashi, thank you for your feedback. I'm new to Linux, but I want to get this device to work. I've downloaded the latest drivers 2009_0820_RT2870_Linux_STA_V2.2.0.0 and installed them from the RALINK website.

    Code:
    network={
    ssid="colt45"
    proto=RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=CCMP TKIP
    group=CCMP TKIP
    psk="***test***"
    }
    When I use wpa_supplicant, I get close, but still fail. My usb device authenticates, but then keeps disconnecting, and I can't figure out why. If anyone can help that would be apprecaited!!


    Code:
    root@p:~# wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ira0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
