PostPosted: Sun 05 Dec 2010, 12:37    Post_subject: Tenda Model W541U V2.0  

I have Puppy Linux 4.3.1 with the following installed
pup_event_backend_modprobe_fix_to_p43x-1.pet
lameWiFi-0.3.4a.pet
rt3070sta-k26305-2.1.2.0-i486.pet

but #iwconfig does not show any devices.

Pleased can someone suggest what else I need to do to be able to see myTenda Model W541U V2.0 USB device.
Thank you

That's not the driver I recommended. My version of the rt3070sta driver (rt3070sta-v2.1.2.0-k2.6.30.5.pet) includes:
- a modules preference configuration file, to avoid a conflict with the rt2870sta driver
- WPA compatibility in the Network Wizard
- recognition of 2 extra USB device ID's
- correct firmware.

If, after installing this driver and rebooting, you still have no success, we need to see the output of your "dmesg" command.
Also, the result of "ifconfig -a" would be helpful. (That's "ifconfig" not "iwconfig")

Still no success after changing the rt3070sta driver.

Well the new driver seems to load OK, but your "ifconfig -a" command shows that a network interface was not created.

Some more Googling reveals that the Tenda W541U wifi dongle seems to be fussy about the specific version of rt3070sta driver. Unfortunately I just trashed my Puppy 4.3 installation, so I cannot compile any alternative drivers for this Puppy version.

If you're prepared to move up to Puppy 5.1/5.2, this now has a new opensource driver called rt2800usb which might work.
And if it doesn't, here's the latest proprietary driver from Ralink, rt3370sta, patched to support the Tenda W541U, device ID 148f:2070.
Obviously, it's for Puppy 5.1/5.2.

EDIT Dec 16 2010:
After 14 downloads, rt3370sta-v2.4.0.1-k2.6.33.2.pet removed.

If anyone wants this driver dotpet, they should post their USB device ID, revealed by running this command
Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

Moving to Puppy Linux 5.1.1 was successful and my Tenda W541U USB Wireless adapter was then recognised, so I have been able to connect to the internet.

Many Thanks for your help. Very Happy

I'm trying to get this Ralink wifi usb device to work: Keebox W150NU. The supplied Windows drivers are for RT2870, although wikidevi says the chip is Ralink RT3070L. Anyway, nothing works. Sad

Linux version 2.6.25.16

Code:

# cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

E:  Ad=05(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=  64 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=06(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=  64 Ivl=0ms

The recent Wary and Lupu 517 beta don't recognize the device either.

Lastly, I'm trying to compile the module from source, but where are the kernel headers? I have the devx sfs.

OK, got the device to work. It was a simple matter of adding the device id to common/rtusb_dev_id.c in the Ralink 3070 source. Compiled fine and recognized the device after copying the .ko and manually specifying the rt3070sta module.

Oh and the kernel files were in the kernel-src-2.6.25.16-patched-puppy4.1.sfs file.

Now I'm trying to get WPA2 to work... not much luck so far.

You need to explicitly configure the source code for WPA support with wpa_supplicant.
In /os/linux/config.mk you need:
Code:
HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
...
HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y

It's all in the README file.

Thanks for pointing that out, tempestuous! Smile I wouldn't say it's /all/ in the readme though. At least when you didn't know what wpa_supplicant is, it's pretty confusing. Now it makes sense! WPA2 did work through the driver when manually configuring it, but it was really klunky that way.

I just compiled the latest rt3370sta driver for Ralink RT3070/RT3370 wifi devices, under Puppy 5.1.x
I also patched the driver to support some additional wifi models, including the Belkin F6D4050 v2000.

Hi everybody, this is my first post on these forums, before I tell you about my current problem, I'll tell you a little bit about myself and what brought me here. I have experience with various Microsoft operating systems going back to MS-DOS in the early 80's but I'm a COMPLETE novice when it comes to Linux, for a variety of reasons, I thought it was time to change that. So, when I was recently given an old laptop, an ibuddie A900 with a Chinese language version of Windows 98, I thought this machine might make a reasonable Linux learning platform for me. Last week, I made several unsuccessful attempts to boot up Linux, I tried several flavours of Ubuntu, a few other distros including the most to date version of Puppy Linux but the computer would not accept any of them, I finally tried Puppy 4.3.1 (kernel 2.6.30.5) and that one works for me.

One of the things motivating to do this is that I have a project in mind which would benefit greatly from having an embedded computer system and Linux seems to be the most appropriate OS for that type of application. And, since this embedded system would have no monitor, keyboard or mouse, I'd like to be able to run a VNC server on the system, operating over a wireless network to provide a convenient user interface. I hope to use this old laptop as a test platform to work out the wrinkles of this type of interface before I move on and invest any money into the embedded system.

And that finally brings us to the reason I've resurrected this old thread, I'm trying to get a Keebox W150nu wireless network adapter (which uses the Ralink RT3070 chipset) to work on my old laptop. I've downloaded and run rt3070sta-k26305-2.1.2.0-i486.pet, it tells me that the installation was successful but that there is no interface using it. I then generated a Hard info system report, under kernel modules, it shows the rt3070sta module, under USB devices, it shows OHCI Host Controller 802.11 n WLAN but under Network interfaces, there's only the loopback interface lo and the ethernet interface eth0 and no wireless interface RA0.

So, my question is simple, what am I missing? Only thing comes to mind for me, this machine has a USB 1.1 interface, which according to Keebox's website is compatible with the W150nu but, perhaps the driver I've loaded assumes USB 2.0?

It's nowhere as complex as that. Quite simply, the Ralink driver does not recognise your USB device ID.

If you can get your laptop to boot to Puppy 5.2.5 (Lucid) then I have a patched version of the Ralink driver which should work.
First try the (patched) rt3370sta driver from here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=481085#481085

but if that doesn't work, try the older (patched) rt3070sta driver from here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=513360#513360

Puppy 5.2.5 is available here -
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-5.2.5/lupu-525.iso
If Puppy 5.2.5 fails to boot on your computer, you can try adding these boot parameters (at the boot prompt) -
"puppy nosmp" (without the quotation marks)
or
"puppy nosmp acpi=off"

No luck yet, Puppy 5.2.5 just won't boot up on this machine.

When I try to load that driver, the system automatically reverts to the newer driver, how do I force the system to use the older driver?

Then I can't see why you would be attempting to use my drivers.

Because I misinterpreted the phrase "but if that doesn't work, try...." to mean, if you can't get 5.2.5 to boot, try.....

Anyways, it looks like I'm stuck with Puppy 4.3.1, any suggestion on how I should proceed from here?
