Problems with Realtek Driver

Hello List;

I appear to be having problems with some new hardware.

When the system boots I get the following error:

“phy0 → rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware.”

Here is part of dmesg:

[ 6.098791] usb 1-1: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using musb-hdrc

[ 6.377455] ieee80211 phy0: Selected rate control algorithm ‘pid’

[ 8.691107] phy0 → rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware.

I can configure the device using iwconfig:

root@beaglebone:~# iwconfig wlan0 essid “Here Goes Nothing”

root@beaglebone:~# iwconfig wlan0

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:“Here Goes Nothing”

Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm

Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off

Encryption key:off

Power Management:on

Also if I try lsmod I get:

root@beaglebone:~# lsmod
