I don't know if this will help with diagnostics or not but I decided to test and see whether the problem was hardware or software related by trying this out on a different computer.

First, I booted up Puppy 5.2.5, it booted up fine proving that my boot CD is not corrupted and suggests that the reason it wouldn't boot up on the old laptop is hardware related. Anyways, I loaded the Ralink driver suggested for 5.2.5 and everything worked as it should, no problems at all.

Next, I booted up Puppy 4.3.1, loaded up the driver recommended on page one of this thread and I ran into the same problem as I had on the old laptop. This gives me hope that I've just missed something on the set up

I've done a little bit more work on my problem first, since I know for certain that my rt3070sta device works on my newer computer, I decided to do my tests on that machine and if successful replicate the results on the older machine. I booted the computer up with Puppy 5.2.5 retro with kernel 2.6.30.5, I tried all of the drivers and methods presented in this thread and in every case whether with Puppy 4.3.1 k2.6.30.5 or Puppy 5.2.5 retro k2.6.30.5 I was unable to get my device to work with kernel 2.6.30.5.

Any suggestions, comments or ideas would be most welcome.

I decided to re try my Tenda usb mini wireless..(311U v 2)-
the wizard had the correct module rt2870/rt3070sta-

I booted luci 5.28 -the network wizard kept saying I had a successful
wireless connect but when I went on the internet -no remote server..

So I saved my network profile then installed Frisbee, rebooted and I got on with no problems ...keeping fingers crossed.. but pretty Cool

I'll try some other puppies with this later..

Hi, I tried to connect to my wifi router with no success using the rt3070sta drivers posted on page 1. Usb wifi is a Dlink DWL g 122 ver E1 ( ID 07d1:3c0f ).

Tried first on turbopup kernel 2.6.25.16: ra0 usb wifi is created, I can scan Wifi hotspots, but cannot connect using dhcpcd nor with static IP.

Same situation using driver for kernel 2.6.30.5 and Puppy 4.3.1 .
I just don't understand why I can scan correctly using iwlist but I can't connect to the router??

My router has encryption turned off.

Just a strange thing:
if i set as following:
iwconfig ra0 essid my-ssid
then iwconfig always reports: essid:"11n-AP".
I have to modify /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA/RT3070STA.dat manually removing "11n-AP" and inserting "my-ssid" to see it in iwconfig.

puppy 4.3.1 (and same with turbopup) dmesg says:

Is /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA/RT3070STA.dat the problem?

Ideas?

Ps: I also tried Puppy 5.2.8 and both rt3070sta and rt3370sta modules found somewhere in murga's forum with no chance.
All this has been tried in a 'modern' pentium IV pc and an older Asus P2BF 700Mhz pc with same results.

Tommy, if I'm not mistaken, others have had success with a newer drivers.

Let us know how you turn out.
Edit: (at April 2011) RT3070 driver code has been merged into the newer rt3370sta driver, and RT2870 driver code has been merged into the newer rt3572sta driver. So the RT3070 and RT2870 codebase has been separated, and this has created a problem for "middle-era" RT3070 devices, which are technically closer to the older RT2870 devices than they are to the latest RT3070/RT3370 devices.

JackWagon, thank you for the quick answer on such an old thread!

I'm not a compile guru, but I will try your suggestion one day or another... Now I have had success with LuPu 5.2.8 and its rt2800usb module. I'm posting this with my dlink dwl-g122 key.

Maybe I have to find a rt2800 .pet somewhere on this forum compiled for 2.6.25.16 kernel...

Thanks again!
