I bought an AZTECH WL562USB wireless adapter and am stuck trying to install the driver.
The driver file I downloaded is a BZ2, called
How can I install the driver from this bz2 file?

I found this workaround that worked for me:
This is how I got my RT5370 usb wifi adapter installed and working on CB2.
download driver archive
2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2 .5.0.3_DPO.bz2 (RT8070/RT3070/RT3370/RT5370/RT5372 USB 03/28/2012 188.8.131.52
unpack the archive and navigate into the top level directory just extracted:
tar jxvf 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V184.108.40.206_DPO.bz2 cd 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V220.127.116.11_DPO
modify the following code in
os/linux/config.mk as below:
HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y WFLAGS += -DCONFIG_STA_SUPPORT
to quieten down the debugging modify
remove "#ifdef DBG" on line 4095 remove "endif /* DBG */" on line 4693
to change the name from ra0 to wlan0 modify
include/rtmp_def.h and change
wlan in the following lines:
#define INF_MAIN_DEV_NAME "ra" #define INF_MBSSID_DEV_NAME "ra"
make and install the modified driver
make sudo make install sudo modprobe rt5370sta
reboot and check with
ifconfig to make sure all is working as required in the operating system.
The CB2 setup program didn't work for me but the xbmc network manager addon worked perfectly so I downloaded and use that rather than doing it all via the operating system.
I hope this helps someone else trying to get an RT5370 wifi adapter up and running.
Your adapter has a Ralink RT3070 chipset. You can download the official Linux drivers from this site.
We'll suppose the driver has been downloaded to your Downloads folder and is called
2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V18.104.22.168_DPO.bz2. Open a terminal with
Ctrl-Alt-T, and type or paste the following:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential cd Downloads tar -xjf 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V22.214.171.124_DPO cd 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V126.96.36.199_DPO sudo make && sudo make install make clean cd .. rm -rf 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V188.8.131.52_DPO
Reboot, and hopefully your wireless connection will appear!
