RT3290 wifi problems

Hi everyone.

I've got few wifi troubles with my recent arch installation.
My computer is a hp envy dv6. The network is handled by a rt3290 card.
I see few threads asserting that this card work perflectly with an archlinux "out of the box".

But on my computer,  isn't able to find any network when I try to scan with it.

iwconfig

eno1      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

wlo1      IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any

if I try  ifconfig wlo1 up:

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Input/output error

(weird, isn't it ?)

Moreover, when I log-in, I got few error message like this :

[ 1808.553058] phy2 -> rt2800pci_set_device_state: Error - Device failed to enter state 4 (-5).

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

Hello. I have RT3090 and I had problems while installing.
If I was restarting from Ubuntu Live CD in Arch install, it was not working. If I was first turning off the computer and after on again, it worked.
I did not need any additional module, and in installed arch works perfectly. To be honest, I don't restart too often (I use only Arch Linux on my computer).

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

Not really a problem with Arch, rather with Linux kernel; your network card is dèsactivé, even though the driver appears to be the correct one. So only solution seems to be to replace the driver with a blonder, newer model. This ralink Web page provides the newest driver I know. Installation is straightforward, configure-make-sudo make install, except for the following two corrections:

Edit the file DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508/os/linux/config.mk and make sure that both lines (close to each other, but not immediately adjacent)

HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y
.....
HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y

end with a y. That's the only suggestion I can offer, hope it's enough. Cheers

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

Sorry for my inactivity.

Thanks for the answers.

My card works sometimes with the rt2800pci module (which comes natively with the kernel). But it's not stable at all...

I tried to compile the rt3290 module, but I've got few errors. Apparently it's owing to my kernel version (too recent, few changes in this version make me unable to compile this).

Here are the errors ;

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

The error seems to be because some macros such as __devexit and __devinit have been deprecated with recent kernel versions.

If you have a recent kernel (≥ 3.8.0), you should edit the code to get rid of references to those macros.  Edit os/linux/pci_main_dev.c like this:
sed -i 's/__devexit/__exit/g' pci_main_dev.c
sed -i 's/__devinit/__init/g' pci_main_dev.c

I do have the same card. It's working almost fine since the installation without additional work except the range. I cannot get signal from like ten meters. Je ne peux pas quitter la salle smile

Also had the same error while installing the driver from ralink's site, with reconfigured config.mk.

Please inform if yfvelo's propose works.

It compiles flawless but yet to be loadable. Can't get it work, probably my noobness is the problem;

installed.
blacklisted previous drivers with a conf file in modprobe.d.
made a load entry in modules-load.d.
modprobe,
reboot.

I also tried with combination of these process yet to work.

Please run these commands and post the output:

uname -a
lspci -vnn

Also, you don't need to manually create a blacklist file in modprobe.d
The package should do that automatically

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

I've tried many different patches from different places (including the official rt3290sta package from OpenSUSE) and all of them have caused a kernel panic on my machine. I have used this package before with success but no matter what I try now, it no longer works. So, for now, my AUR project is on hold until Ralink releases a new version of the driver (The latest is from May 2012)

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

Same laptop, same card, same struggling through different kernel/driver combinations (i tried different patches, none of them worked with 3.11.x kernels).
For what is worth, regular rt2800pci drivers now works with 3.11.6 on my laptop - it goes offline every now and then but if i restart wpa_supplicant.service it connects again - so you may want to give them another chance...

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

This thread is 2 years old, whatever problem was there probably doesn't apply anymore and you shouldn't try to install random outdated AUR packages

Re: RT3290 wifi problems

This problem still occured with my computer. The RT3290 is a hell under linux, the best I can advise anyone with this card who want linux is to go buy a new one on internet, it's not more than 15 € but you will have a far better stability.
Here is the same model I bought and it work perfectly !
