http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all. Having trouble getting my Alfa 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Card set up in Ubuntu 9.10. It is a 2W card, Model No. AWUS036NH. When I connect it to the computer, the card will register in Network Manager but lists as "Disconnected." I have followed the following steps, but to no avail from the thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=13874751. Copy driver for network card to Desktop 2. Open a terminal 3. sudo -i 4. cd /home/ubuntu/Desktop/rt3070alfa 5. tar -xf 036NH_2009_1110_Linux.tar.bz2 6. cd 2009_1110_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.2.0 7. gedit os/linux/config.mk 8. Change "HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=n" and "HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n" to y 9. make && make install 10. gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add: a. blacklist rt2x00usb b. blacklist rt2x00lib c. blackist rt2800usb 11. reboot I believe this card uses the Ralink 3070 chipset and have drivers that came on a cd. Being new to Ubuntu, however, does anybody have an idea to get this to work? I have gotten it to work once before but am now using a fresh Ubuntu install. Thanks for the help. (HowTos)
