Linksys WUSB600N and 11.2

I have a laptop running 11.2 with an internal Broadcom-based Wi-Fi card that’s working fine.

I’m trying to get 802.11n going with the WUSB600N. The USB ID on this device is 1737:0079. I believe this means it’s a “V2” with an RT3572 chip.

No driver loads for this device when it’s plugged in. If I do a “modprobe rt2870sta”, a driver loads, and syslog shows “rtusb init” and “usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2870”. But ifconfig -a doesn’t show a new network interface.

I’ve also tried building the RT3572 driver from the manufacturer’s web site. It builds fine, and modprobe will load it, but I get the same results as the rt2870sta driver.

What am I missing?

The solution is to add the line

{USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}, /* WUSB600Nv2 */

to the the RT35xx section of the file common/rtusb_dev_id.c in the chipset driver downloaded from Ralink corp.
