PostPosted: Fri 23 Aug 2013, 03:03    Post subject:  Wireless access with 802.11n  

Hello everybody:

I'm new at this forum and with this 'puppy linux' and my problem is with internet speed.

I've got FTTH (optic fibre) so my speed is 100Mb/s.

My problem is with the connection. I' ve got wireless acces with 802.11n but puppy works at 20Mb/s, that is with 802.11g.

How can I obtain the n support??
I can't download the original drivers for linux from conceptronic because my wireless card is descatalogued and no supported.

With other linux versions I have no problem.

How can I obtain my full speed ????

THANKS in advance

pp4mnklinux

EDITED:_


I'm using Frisbee to setup my connection
I connect via USB
My Wireless USB adapter is:
150n Wireless USB Adapter 3.5 dBi CONCEPTRONIC
(MAX 150Mb/sec)

I tried to search drivers for linux at conceptronic web-site, and in the Included drivers cd, but I only found for Windows (diff versions)

Thank you all !! (sp darkcity)

Ok multiple posts will just get someone whining at you .

A quick search suggests CONCEPTRONIC use ralink

https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/rt73
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/rt2800usb/devices

It may be the case that the open source driver does not support n mode as seems to be the case for you. The hopeful news is the proprietry driver from ralink themselves may do so..I have a Ralink dongle and the included ralink drivers had n support but my router did not lol.

What needs to be determined is the specific card inside the device... lspci with it plugged in is supposed to reveal all.There is hardinfo in puppy too. Or dmesg might give a clue. Or perhaps see what it says in windows if you are stuck. Once you have that info you may find a driver already built here or at least some sources from ralink directly (the are fairly good with linux support) that a driver can be built from (others may help you with that if you post a request.)

So more info needed basically

Mike

Jemimah's Frisbee network tool has a button named 'Diagnostics'. If you click on it you will be able to 'Generate a Diagnostic Data' report.

He never went for that!

Nice move!

PostPosted: Tue 27 Aug 2013, 14:03    Post subject: How to install this driver in puppy  

HOW TO INSTALL THIS DRIVER:

My wifi card is "ID 148f:3370 Ralink Technology, Corp."

It is a usb stick

The driver it uses is rt2800usb.
Some info about this driver can be found here:

https://wiki.debian.org/rt2800usb

This firmware comes preloaded since kernel 2.6.31. but it doesn't work with puppy.

Can you explain me why??


How can I install it in Puppy Slacko

THANKS A LOT

Ok that looks like will work with the sta driver from ralink...

filename: /lib/modules/2.6.24.5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt3370sta.ko
version: 2.4.0.1
license: GPL
description: RT2870 Wireless Lan Linux Driver
author: Paul Lin <paul_lin@ralinktech.com>
srcversion: 1F008605BF8CC3794CEFFA3
alias: usb:v0DF6p0050d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*
alias: usb:v148Fp3370d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*

Going back to your original question this driver might well be necessary to enable n mode....its all in one so no extra firmware needed.

Search the forum for it...I there is a good chance someone has built it for your kernel.

mike


just an afterthought...some pups have the sta driver so might just be worth trying to choose a different driver from the network wizard...

Thanks 'mikeb' but ,please, can you tell me what pups have support for my usb card. (just an afterthought...some pups have the sta
driver so might just be worth trying to choose a
different driver from the network wizard...). I tried some of them (6-7) and I can't obtain 'n' speed. THanks a lot

Others hate it but I find the forum search useful

Some drivers
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1857108142&t=50059

More specific help...note rt2870 uses the same driver.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1857108142&t=71889

Drivers for Lucid...bit of a long thread..
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1857108142&t=59000

Between those 3 you should get somewhere

I just noticed

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=722627#722627

ralink appear to add cards to the all-in-one sta driver so a good chance this would work for you too...
