Thread: rt2860sta.ko - Cannot allocate memory

    Default rt2860sta.ko - Cannot allocate memory

    Hi guys,

    I just switched over to openSUSE about a week ago from Ubuntu and I just purchased an Asus N13 PCI-E wireless network adapter which uses an RALink 2860 chipset. I plugged it in and openSUSE was able to detect it and everything but when I went to go configure it using YaST, it wouldn't be able to scan for networks.

    So, I reinstalled my old adapter, downloaded the latest source from RALink and compiled the drivers. When I tried to use insmod on the new .ko that was compiled, I got the "Could not allocate memory" error.

    If you need dmsg logs or anything else, I can reinstall the card and get those.

    Thanks in advance!

    I do not debug vendor drivers.

    Install the latest compat-wireless and use the rt2800pci driver for your ASUS N13.

    Did you try scanning for networks from the GUI using NetworkManager? Did
    you try using the command line options:

    sudo /usr/sbin/iw dev wlan1 scan trigger
    sudo /usr/sbin/iw dev wlan1 scan dump

    Good luck.
