[Solved] Can't get Asus Netbook RT2860 wireless recognized

Hello fellow archers,

I've been racking my brain all hours of the night trying to get the wireless, on a fresh install on a Asus 1000HE netbook, to work.

I beleive the card is an RT2860. I could be wrong though.

lspci | grep -i net
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 Gigabit or Fast Ethernet (rev b0)

It looks like only my ethernet card is recognized.

Followed this:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wi … and_rt2870

Blacklisted modules. Installed rt2860sta from AUR.

Nothing works

Jesus Linux is pain lol.

Try using the rt2800pci


# edit: but if your card isn't showing up in lspci, it may be faulty

The lspci line you quoted describes an Atheros ethernet (wired) network card - why do you think you have a RT2860 wifi card?

My wireless card worked fine in Windows when I had it installed.

I beleive it's a rt2860 card because of the 1000HE wiki entry:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/As … E#Wireless

I have the same netbook.

Sweet baby Jesus after a night of bad sleep I managed to get it working. It had to be enabled it first

echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/eeepc-wmi/rfkill/rfkill1/state

Had to stumble upon a solution and figured out the location of the file was elsewhere:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/As … :_Wireless

I have an Asus 1000HE BTW

And I undid all the other changes I made previously.

Funny thing though it doesn't show up as a rt2860:

01:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
...

But it's working nonetheless

ehmm.... that's not an rt2860 device. It's an Atheros AR928X device (obviously) and you are using the ath9k driver.


Check lsmod and dmesg to confirm that I'm right. smile
