    Arrow D-Link Corp. DWA-140 RangeBooster N Adapter(rev.B3) connecivity issue

    I cannot connect using this wifi adaptor in Live opensuse 13.1 with KDE (it's the same on GNOME):

    linux@linux:~> lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 013: ID 2001:3c15 D-Link Corp. DWA-140 RangeBooster N Adapter(rev.B3) [Ralink RT5372]

    linux@linux:~> uname -r
    3.11.6-4-default

    The device is correctly recognized and scans all the network but when I try to connect to a Network, it fails. The drivers are correclty installed:
    linux:/home/linux # lsmod | grep rt
    rt2800usb 22485 0
    rt2800lib 74211 1 rt2800usb
    rt2x00usb 20041 1 rt2800usb
    rt2x00lib 53042 3 rt2800usb,rt2800lib,rt2x00usb
    mac80211 548058 3 rt2800lib,rt2x00usb,rt2x00lib
    cfg80211 444345 2 rt2x00lib,mac80211
    crc_ccitt 12627 2 rt2800lib,ppp_async

    I use this device also on opensuse
    12.1 and there it works perfeclty.

    Open a terminal window, and run
    Code:
    sudo tail -f /var/log/messages
    Then try to connect, and report any errors here. If you are using network manager, you can also examine /var/log/NetworkManager. That should help you determine the cause of failure.

    BTW, have you installed the ralink-firmware package?

    I've noticed that I can connect when the signal is high but then the connection is too slow that it is unusable and after a while it disconnects. When it is successful I get:

    It is worth specifing that I'm try to connect to an open Network without key and with the same signal level I can successfully connect via opensuse 12.1 and windows. I've not installed any ralink-firmware package since that on the opensuse site it says it should work out of the box.

    I see you have now asked the same question in the wireless forum

    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...oesn-t-connect

    Not a good idea to double post, but in any case the wireless forum is probably more appropriate anyway. Larry's advice regarding kernel version is plausible. Other than that, maybe this is a congested network, or interference is present (eg other nearby wireless networks operating on same frequency).

    if it was a problem related to the network I should have encountered the same problem under windows or opensuse 12.1, in both of which I can connect without problems to the same network..
