    Thumbs up HP DV6 Pavillion <Ralink Wireless><ATI 5650>

    Ralink card not supported by Default
    ATI radeon 5650 -- Not supported By default

    So now the solutions to the problems:-

    1.-> Ralink wireless card RT3090
    Solution to problems like System Hangs when enabling wireless or wireless card not working.
    The problem with this device is that the Drivers installed by default are older of the wireless adapter RT2860 ,which needs to be disabled.
    So before installing drivers for RT3090 default drivers must be disabled .


    Enter the following Command

    lsmod | grep pci

    >>List of devices will appear
    rt2800pci
    rt2800lib
    rt2x00pci
    rt2x00lib

    Now above devices needs to be disabled.So that they dont automatically load up after rebooting.

    Now go to directory

    cd /etc/modprobe.d

    edit the file "blacklist.conf" use the following command

    vi blacklist.conf

    bt5 will give an ATTENTION message

    PRESS E that is edit anyway.


    Goto the End of the file and write

    blacklist rt2800pci

    Save and Quit.

    Reboot.

    After Rebooting

    Check if rt2800pci is disabled or not.

    Again Type :- lsmod | grep pci

    No device's must be there(Thats in my case)
    Just make sure rt2800pci is not there.

    Now install drivers
    Download Ralink drivers from Ralink's Site:-

    http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2

    After Downloading the package:-
    Extract it.
    in my case it is

    2010_1217_RT3090_LinuxSTA_V2.4.0.4_WiFiBTCombo_DPO .zip

    Extract it:-

    unzip 2010_1217_RT3090_LinuxSTA_V2.4.0.4_WiFiBTCombo_DPO
    (make sure that the directory you unzip is in root)
    cd 20101217_RT3090_LinuxSTA_V2.4.0.4_WiFiBTCombo_DPO

    Then type following commands


    make
    make-install
    cd /os/linux
    insmod rta3090.ko

    Drivers are installed.
    Open Wicd manager.Go to interfaces change eth0 to ra0.

    Default interface name for wireless is ra0.
    It is done.
    Reboot.

    Type ifconfig to see the interfaces.
    ra0 is wireless interface.

    You're unable to use the internal wireless hardware with virtual machines.
    Have you...g0tmi1k?

    if it saves your settings for you when it is suspending the VM why can't we have our wireless cards work? After all, when we suspend the VM it says:

    Suspend will preserve your environment and data for later use.

    And after all the wireless card is only a setting.
