    Then this distribution isn't for you and you shouldn't be trying to crack any networks. Go to the ubuntu forums and figure it all out from there. The lack of ability to google stuff and figure it out for yourself is neither endearing nor useful.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    really? you think that will work?

    What is it with the new posts lately? There seems to be an increase in hostility toward the senior members and moderators...

    Default Total Noob

    Hey Guys!

    I am in a similar situation & am a total noob. I have located the drivers necessary to run the Ralink 3090 here: h**ps://launchpad.net/~markus-tisoft/+archive/rt3090/+packages

    I downloaded:
    * rt3090-dkms_2.1.0.1-0ubuntu0~ppa1_all.deb (703.4 KiB)
    * rt3090_2.1.0.1-0ubuntu0~ppa1.diff.gz (4.7 KiB)
    * rt3090_2.1.0.1-0ubuntu0~ppa1.dsc (1.1 KiB)
    * rt3090_2.1.0.1.orig.tar.gz (701.4 KiB)


    I placed these files onto a usb stick and transferred them to my MSI 320X laptop running BT4 Final installed to my hard drive. I had to do it this way - because the laptop does not currently have internet access.


    I am hoping some one with more experience can now direct me how to install these drivers. I am a linix noob. I am not even sure which of those files I actuall need to get my wireless card up and running. I had read someting about using Modprobe -i to install... But Help please

    Thanks so much guys!

    You install the deb file, the rest are optional or for compiling. Also I suggest you to see if the kernel specified on the site matches bt, because if it doesn't you won't be able to install it correctly which also means you're back to square on.

    Contrary to all that I do believe there's a rt30*sta driver in the repo. Check it first.
