DWA-125 Wireless USB Dongle problem

I have USB dongle as mentioned below : relevant line of lsusb

"Bus001 Device 003: ID 07d1:3c16 D-Link System DWA-125 Wireless N150 Adapter (rev.A2) [Ralink RT3070]"

I am running the latest arch iso (6th Oct release).The problem I have is , the Wireless card is detected and wifi-menu wlan0 is successfully scanning the available networks. However , when I give the password and re-run the wifi , it always gives the error - "Authentication Failed could not associate with wlan0"....Some other times , I get "WPA authentication failed - Bad password"..

i am sure the password is right.

Based on guidance in arch-wiki , I downloaded linux-firmware (from some other distro ) and installed . I restarted wlan0 , still not being able to connect.

Should I try something else like wicd-curses or ndiswrapper?

pl help with this

That chipset is also listed by the following driver in the kernel

modinfo rt2800usb |grep v07D1p3C16

If it does not work, check the log for the firmware loading, try to load the driver with

modprobe rt2800usb nohwcrypt=1

edit: I was too quick in reading. When you use the ISO, it will probably use the rt2800usb anyway (you dont write anything about what is loaded). Still, unloading the module and loading it again with the option above is well worth trying imo.

Hm, that wifi-menu status is  not a lot for others to help you debugging. Maybe you
- try the manual connection: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wi … nual_setup
to see where it fails exactly.
- check wpa_supplicant.conf for the PSK (keymap correct?)
- check the logs for firmware loading
- check lsmod for conflicting modules
