I'm newbie in the beagleboard.
I've installed ubuntu, and insert RT73 (after another Ralink) chipset based wifi.
Consol said unsupported device. (both of them)
How can I make to work them?
Is it possible to download image which support usb wifi, or I have to build my own kernel?
Can you provide a full dmesg dump on pastebin.com with the RT73 device
already plugged into a usb hub before power up?
it is enabled in the 2.6-stable branch (2.6.31.x) CONFIG_RT73USB=y
(At this moment I cannot copy a dump -> tomorrow)
Yes, plugged before PWR UP!
Precompiled kernel / rootfs dowloaded from http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardUbuntu
Maybe is this a problem?
Nah, just not enough testing and it might need some type of firmware...
I didn't have a rt73 based module so i just picked on up on amazon.
On other user was able to get this device to work:
Make sure you have "linux-firmware" installed, which both demo image
do have, and issue a "sudo ifconfig -a" to get the wlan0 interface to
rt73.bin Linux firmware installed. /located: lib/firmwares/
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "ssid"
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo dhclient wlan0
But nothing... after dhclient I cannot see any activity on USB's LEDs...
Any idea? Thanks in advance,
