I did not see any post on this (except one on Dec 2013 with on OpenSure 12.3 I believe) and I hope this is not a repeat. If so please redirect me.
I am having a problem with wireless network on OpenSUSE 13.1 (64 bit)
The computer I have is HP Envy h8-1534 and the wireless pci card is Ralink RT3290.
I have done an update of kernel which installed 4.0.0-1.1.g49e42b3.x86_64.rpm
The behavior of the wlan network is as others reported in these forums: wlan will sometimes be on, it will broadcast all available wireless devices, and it will connect to the router I have (Belkin 1200 AC). Then, either immediately, or after half an hour or so, it disconnects, my router disappears from the list of available wireless devices. After a while All wireless devices disappear and I can t see ANY broadcasting wireless devices.
I am controlling wlan via NetworkManager as Global options in Yast Networks settings is set to “User controlled with NetworkManager”
The driver is rt2800 for some reason (i.e. not rt3290) as lsmod Command gives
rt2800pci 16384 0
rt2800mmio 20480 1 rt2800pci

mac80211 790528 3 rt2800lib,rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
eeprom_93cx6 16384 1 rt2800pci
dmesg command gives
ieee80211 phy0:rt2800pci-set device state:Error Device failed to enter state 4 (-5)
rt2800-wait.wp dma ready: Error WPDMA TX/RX Busy
I don’t quite understand what these say but I thought they would be useful to expert people like yourselves.
On the Dec 2013 report on the same device the solution found, if I understood correctly, was to remove the secure boot and boot OpenSUSE via UEFI.
This is how my system is set up and I still cannot have a stable wlan. Any help will be appreciated.
