Thread: Need help connecting to internet

  1. #1

    Exclamation Need help connecting to internet

    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to make a transition from Windows to Suse. Installation etc went fine. But I cannot connect to the internet from my linux machine.
    I have Belkin FSD9050 usb wireless adaptor on linux machine and Belkin Wireless G+ MIMO router on my Vista machine.
    RT73 usb has been recognised in Suse. I am unable to configure it.

    Any suggestions will be really helpful.

    Thanks,

    Nittin

    Please make sue your wireless dongle can be detected first.
    Can you output the following command result?
    #lspci
    #iwconfig
    #ifconfig

    It seems like the driver is not loaded (no wireless extensions). Have a look at the results of lsmod and post the results. Eventually try to load the Rt43 driver since it is quoted by the link i posted

    Your device driver should be loaded.
    rt73usb 45184 0
    rt2x00usb 30848 1 rt73usb

    I need to know which way you are using (Network Manager or ifup) and try this command.
    #ifconfig wlan0 up

    Show device again.
    #ifconfig

    Confirm:the driver is loaded but after a lot of googleing i realized that this driver has a lot of problems. The most of the posts i read recommend to blacklist rt73usb. They say to download and compile the drivers from serialmonkey.com. There is also a graphical utility to configure the chip called rutilt. I have a wifi key based on Rt2500 i use with my osx86 install but never with linux. I'll try to investigate on my skin. I'll post my experiences as soon as i can. In the while google Rt73 Ubuntu. It seems they are active a lot on this chip.

    Hi. My rt73usb deice is working now for the first time. I never used it with Linux! First of all my experience is now based on Opensuse 11.0, but i don't know the version you are using. Anyway, the driver shipped with os11 is nearly good, what is missing is the firmware needed by thiis chip. If i perform iwconfig, anyway i still get the message "wmaster1 no wireless extensions", but i connect to internet despite this. I downloaded the drivers from the asus site here:http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us, but i really did not needed them. Uncompress the driver package, and enter the Module directory. There i found this rt73.bin: it is the firmware. Next i copyed it to /lib/firmware. Now i plugged out the wifi key, reinserted, and configured it with Yast, Network devices. It will warn that firmware is needed. Don't care, continue, and configure the network connection as usual. Now connect with networkmanager. Hope this helps.
