Spiros Aliprantis: great video mate! Strange question, why the driver is not pre compiled on Linux kernel available for use and we need to compile it ourselves? is any particular reason for that?
Gregory Chang: running ubuntu and can u tell me how to setup the repositories exactly?
JoeMoeArigatou: I have a different version of Ralink, is there any way this method could still works? I know it's been 3 years since this video came out and I really want internet on Debian.
Clate McGehee: Did you ever figure your issue out? I know it worked fine for me on Debian 6 so I see no reason it should not work on Backtrack
Clate McGehee: u need a wired connection.
Armando Castillo: Instead of "su", type "sudo bash" and then your password when requested
Terense Thomas: Yes i had used the same command as u described and i m using backtrack 5 r3
Clate McGehee: DId you use the link in the description? What Ubuntu version are you using?
Terense Thomas: All the commands worked but i dont think the last two command worked for me. although it didnt show any error but it has not detected my wireless card i.e RT5390R. i had used these commands in backtrack for your info. please help.. my email- firstname.lastname@example.org
H1DD3N G4L4XY: How am I supposed to do this if I have no connection besides the pci card???
Clate McGehee: sudo su
Clate McGehee: for Ubuntu you should type "sudo"
Jason Smith: when I put in the command su it asks me for a password. When I provide the password if says "Authentication failure"
Kevin Name: I have 13.04, I can only get WiFi if I'm really close to the router. Somebody suggested I should try to find a new driver? I tried to follow the instructions above best I could. The first minute, the "Software Sources" thing, I have no idea what that refers to, I don't seem to have that place on Ubuntu. I skipped that, then following the commands, I clicked the link in the description. None of the following commands work, either the ones from the video or the description. Can't find the file
tuxthezerg: I ended up just reinstalling the OS to fix it. Something somewhere got corrupted, we'll probably never know what but whatever it was, it was why the kernel module that is supposed to be supporting that chipset wasn't working and I suspect that the driver from ralink that was talked about here just won'r compile anymore (not that it really should need to at this point)
Clate McGehee: Weird, my father is using that PC with Ubuntu 12.04 and it worked out of the box with no issues? Is it working under Windows?
tuxthezerg: You know... for a driver that is supposedly already installed it sure does have a knack for not actually working.
Clate McGehee: ubuntu 13.04 already has this driver. No need to install this
albanian: hello i'm having some erorr when it try to install to my ubuntu 13.04. The error are in the end of make. Can you help me please?
Clate McGehee: Did u use the link in my description? The one in the video is dead. Let me know if u still need help
