RT2500 USB Driver?!?!?

hi.

i've got a sony vaio with a belkin wireless usb adapter (which i'm led to believe uses to rt2500 chipset).

had a go with ndiswrapper but it didn't seem to work very well with PSK authentication (which is what we use at home)- i've installed both the serialmonkey rt2500 driver AND the ural port of the bsd driver onto the laptop and both modprobe fine-

my question is, how do i allocate the port so that they show up in iwconfig? i've added ra0 to my /etc/rc.conf file but still nothing there.

any help would be greatly appreciated, i've been mucking about with this for almost a week now!

There is an opensource driver for thr rt2400 and rt2500. I think they have added USB support now. If not then its in the works. Try the cvs.

It works a whole lot better without kernel preemption, which is enabled on ARCH kernels. You could compile your own to remedy this. It works with kernel preemption but sometimes freezes.

Re: RT2500 USB Driver?!?!?

Which belkin wireless usb adapter do you have? mine is a Belkin USB 802.11g - 54 Mbps, it says F5D7050 in the back. Works ok with "rt2570 USB nightly CVS tarball: rt2570-CVS" from here.

Also works with the ralink driver "USB(Source Code) 2005/06/01 Drv2.0.3.0" but I have to patch it to add my stick usb id yikes

Yep same one. I had thought it wasn't working but it was my PSK stuff making it act a bit flaky. The windows partition with the original driver also drops every now and again so it must be down to the usb dongle.

Thanks for replying!
