I have installed
gcc, I downloaded the driver from mediatek-page, I decompressed the file, I double check the
I edited the 2415 the line in
FlexibleCipher = MIX_CIPHER_NOTUSE;
FlexibleCipher = WPA_TKIPAES_WPA2_TKIPAES;
I have the kernel and the headers installed, but the
sudo make command won't work.
I use the module
01:00.0 Network controller : Ralink corp. RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:3090] Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device [1462:6891] Kernel driver in use: rt2800pci
but 40cm away to router the netbook have half (or worse) signal-strenght.
(newer kernels: 12.04 and up)
Here is "big-diagnostics" of an oldie netbook (msi-wind-u135) which have this
