RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

Hello !

There is a lot of topics about RT3290 here as we can see in the search engine, but I've not yet solved my problem.

I don't have any Bluetooth and my Wifi connection interrupts frequently (3 times per hour approx.)

Before installing rt3290 from AUR (which is flagged out of date but the 2.6.0.0 is the latest version on the Ralink website) I had this lspci -k result :

...
07:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 18ec
	Kernel driver in use: rt2800pci
	Kernel modules: rt2800pci
07:00.1 Bluetooth: Ralink corp. RT3290 Bluetooth
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 18ec
...

Now I have that, the Wifi interrupts seems to be solved but I've not Bluetooth support yet :

...
07:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 18ec
	Kernel driver in use: rt2860
	Kernel modules: rt2800pci, rt3290sta
07:00.1 Bluetooth: Ralink corp. RT3290 Bluetooth
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 18ec
...

I have an Envy j082sf

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

With the AUR package I've the same problem on the frequents Wifi interrupts hmm

Maybe I have to blacklist the previous kernel rt2300pci driver... ?

I've find something here but rtbth doesn't exists, any ideas ?

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

There is no support for bluetooth in new versions of kernel, just an old version that was used in Ubuntu 12.04 I think.

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

Holà !

Thanks for the reply smile

I'm a little bit sad because I like to have a full support of the hardware of my computer, to show how it's powerfull to my Mac addicts friends.
My issue with the wifi is a little bit strange, sometimes that works, and some times not, I think that's because the driver is not 100% perfect.

I've just sent a email to Ralink because I've bought my computer thinking the Bluetooth and Wifi are both supported, so I aked them to write in the driver title "Wifi only".

Any other idea to make the bluetooth working ? I'll maybe try to create a driver, but I'm a big newbie with little time.

Thanks smile

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

Yes, I find a way.

Install rtbth-dkms from AUR.
Reboot your laptop (in case)
Then open a terminal :

$ sudo su
# pkill -f "rtbt"
# modprobe -r rtbth
# modprobe rtbth

I need to do the terminal trick each time I want to use bluetooth.

EDIT: Doesn't work for me. It says BT is on, but not actually.

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

So try :

$ bluetoothctl

Then you must have your controller when typing list.

Try power on

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

i've the same problem..

After install rtbth-dkms, i now can see the device, scan for near devices... but when i try to pair it always fail...

I tried with mouse and a android phone:

- with the mouse when it try to pair it faills with the message: "authentication Canceled":
[bluetooth]# pair 00:1F:20:F5:CD:D2
Attempting to pair with 00:1F:20:F5:CD:D2
[CHG] Device 00:1F:20:F5:CD:D2 Connected: yes
[CHG] Device 00:1F:20:F5:CD:D2 Connected: no
Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationCanceled

- with the android phone, it shows up the correct pin code, and press yes, but it fails with the error "authentication fail", on the phone i see the message "invalid pin".
[bluetooth]# pair 40:78:6A:2A:11:0C
Attempting to pair with 40:78:6A:2A:11:0C
[CHG] Device 40:78:6A:2A:11:0C Connected: yes
Request confirmation
[agent] Confirm passkey 793103 (yes/no): yes
Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationFailed
[CHG] Device 40:78:6A:2A:11:0C Connected: no

Not sure what i could be missing...


NOTE: i try with a live cd of ubuntu version 12.04.01 and it work OK, i install the rtbth-3.9.3 driver... but this disto uses an old kernel (3.13.0-32-generic) and version of bluez (4.98-2ubuntu7.2)...

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

what i did:

install rtbth-dkms
systemctl start bluetooth
rmmod rtbth --> make sure is not loaded by the service
modprobe rtbth

bluetoothctl --> should show you the device and also be able to pair

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

OK, I've done everything I could think of, but it still won't pair, giving me the same error:

[bluetooth]# pair 3C:8B:FE:79:2D:EA
Attempting to pair with 3C:8B:FE:79:2D:EA
[CHG] Device 3C:8B:FE:79:2D:EA Connected: yes

[agent] Confirm passkey 376214 (yes/no): y
Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationFailed
[CHG] Device 3C:8B:FE:79:2D:EA Connected: no

How did you guys manage to do it? Nothing written above helped(

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

is still working.. and fully integrated with gnome.

to make it work automatically on each boot, i did some changes. if it helps after install rtbth-dkms using pacaur:

1. blacklist the module to prevent it from load on boot
echo "blacklist rtbth" > /etc/modprobe.d/ralink-bt.conf

2. local script, /usr/local/sbin/rtbth,  to load and start rtbt tool
#!/bin/bash
sleep 5
/sbin/modprobe --ignore-install rtbth;
/usr/bin/mknod /dev/rtbth c 192 0;
/usr/bin/rtbt &

3. systemctl service, the file /etc/systemd/system/rtbth.service
[Unit]
Description=Fix rtbth bluetooth after gmd start
After=display-manager.service

[Service]
Type=oneshot
ExecStart=/usr/local/sbin/rtbth
TimeoutSec=0
RemainAfterExit=true

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

4. enable it to start on boot
systemctl enable rtbth

Hope it helps!

Is there a standard way for this? why this happens? anyway your solution doesn't work for me.

Sry for updating old topic I thought this is better than posting new one.

Re: RT3290 Wifi+Bluetooth problem

This topic is almost three years old, I doubt the situation with bluetooth has remained constant during that time. Open a new topic, provide up-to-date information and logs, feel free to link to this topic if parts of it are still relevant, but I'm going to close it now to prevent further zombification.
