Ralink issue

Hello dear openSUSE community :>

I just moved to this distro from Fedora (in hope to find it less buggie, but it seems it’s not really the case… :D). My problem is the following: my wireless is not connecting to any network. I have a Ralink network card and the driver seems to be rt2800pci. Anyone has a similar problem?

Here’s the message log:
3940.286862] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00queue_flush_queue: Warning - Queue 0 failed to flush
3940.396913] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00queue_flush_queue: Warning - Queue 2 failed to flush

Thanks for your help.

I have the same warnings in my log, but wireless works fine here. So I think you can ignore that.

How do you try to connect? If you’re using the NetworkManager applet, you may have to enable NetworkManager first in YaST->Network->Network Settings->Global Options.

Do you have the package kernel-firmware installed?

Thanks for your reply! :slight_smile:

I’m using NetworkManager, and yes, it is installed kernel-firmware…

So, do you see your interfaces and networks in the NetworkManager applet, or is that empty?

Yes. The only problem is that it can not connect.

Hm. I’m not that experienced with wireless adapters, my Ralink RT2573 works just fine with the 13.1 rt73usb driver.
What exact model do you have?

Please post the output of:

How do I get a Ralink RT3290 wireless card working? - Ask Ubuntu would suggest there is a proprietary driver you could install, or your card should work with the standard driver in kernel 3.12 at least.

So I would suggest you try to install the newer kernel:
software.opensuse.org: Install package Kernel:stable / kernel-desktop

I have the 3290 wireless in an HP Envy box. I can switch between the
ehternet and wireless with no problem under 12.3 with either manual (ifup)
control or networkmanager but with 13.1 it is a PITA. It looks like either
something in the pci2800 driver for 13.1 is turning off the power or
damping the sensitivity. The computer sits about 16 inches from the
router/AP but networkmanager either sees the AP at 100% or nothing. When it
is ignoring the AP, it may or may not see other APs in the neighborhood -
like it sees mine when it feels like it.

A cold boot or booting to Win 8.1 and back usually cleans things up for a
while but the whole setup is unreliable, at best, with either manual or nwm.

It could be the AP as it supports dual band and b/g/n links but I’m sure
glad I don’t have to rely on the wireless!

:((((( It is really frustrating… I’ll try the 3.12 kernel, if not, I’ll go back to Fedora… :smiley:

THIS IS SO GREAT, IT WORKS! SORRY FOR CAPS BUT I DON’T BELIEVE IT… ON FEDORA THE KERNEL 3.11 WORKED WELL… THANKS A LOT WELFI323 :slight_smile:

Hm, maybe they backported something from kernel 3.12?
Or maybe they include the proprietary driver… No idea.

But great to hear of your success!:slight_smile:
