    Default awus036NH driver install

    Credit goes to original author, I just modified it so it worked for me on bt4 final.


    1. Download the precompiled kernel image and headers from here: RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting

    2. If they were downloaded to your ~/root folder do the following:
    cd ~/root
    sudo mv linux-image-2.6.33-wl_rt3070_i386.deb /usr/src
    sudo mv linux-headers-2.6.33-wl_rt3070_i386.deb /usr/src

    (aka just move the files to you /usr/src dir)

    3. cd /usr/src

    4. sudo dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.33-wl_rt3070_i386.deb

    5. sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.33-wl_rt3070_i386.deb

    6. update-initramfs -c -k 2.6.33-wl

    7. update-grub

    8. go here: Ralink corp. and download the following file: Firmware RT28XX/RT30XX USB series (RT2870/RT2770/RT3572/RT3070)

    9. Again, assuming the file you just downloaded is in your root folder type the following:
    cd ~/roo
    sudo mv rt2870.bin /lib/firmware

    (aka move file to your /lib/firmware dir)

    10. Finally edit the following file:
    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (or blacklist cant remember)

    and add blacklist rt2870sta to the end. Save and exit

    11. When you reboot, make sure to choose the kernel you just installed (2.6.33-wl) when grub prompts you to choose which kernel it should boot.

    12. Finally, make sure networking is activated and type the following: sudo modprobe rt2800usb

    13. airmon-ng start wlan0 && aireplay-ng -9 mon0 to try out your now working alfa beast.

    If you're giving credit to the original author you should mention who they are.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Nothing wrong with the post in an of itself however the following forum faq entry does apply, in regards to the download package.

    Anyone that downloads some non-official kernel images posted on rapid share deserves to get rooted.

    since the official kernel update I'm quite happy with the compat wireless drivers and my AWUS036NH.

    Index of /kernel/compat-wireless-2.6

    no need to use kernels from the Outer Rim Territories
    best regards

    completely right what purehate says!

    @skinnyskenny
