I bought DWA-525 and it does not work

Google did not help. No one on the Internet could not get the device to work =(


01:06.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. Device 5360

I do not know what to do

uname -a

Linux pc 3.0.0-19-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 19 19:05:57 UTC 2012 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

cat /etc/lsb-release


I am sure that the problem is DWA-525 and chip 5360. I found many similar problems on the Internet without solving =(

Please edit your question to include some information about the system this is happening on. For example, the result of unname -a and cat /etc/lsb-release in a terminal window? It might also help to know what type of PC you are using. Can you connect to your network with a wired connection? How did you isolate the problem to the DWA-525? Are you sure the DWA-525 is just not working? – irrational John Apr 21 '12 at 16:59
fix. I try this card on 2 computers – Dmitrix Apr 22 '12 at 18:50

You appear to have the A2 revision of the DWA-525 which appears to be "less special".

If you Google around there are posts which talk about getting the earlier A1/RT3060 revision to work with earlier versions of Ubuntu (for example, this blog entry).

This is probably worth investigating, but there is no reason to expect stuff that worked for the A1/RT3060 to also work with the A2/RT5360.

FWIW, you might also take a look at this post on archlinux Kernel & Hardware» new Wi Fi device Ralink rt5360.

(Sorry I can't provide any specific, useful suggestions. Lacking both experience and the hardware pretty much limits me to "hand waving".)

I read these articles before writing =( I can send the device if you can configure it =) – Dmitrix Apr 23 '12 at 14:18
