In Ubuntu 14.04, WiFi driver is not working.

I completed this suggest Ralink rt3290 wifi driver is not working in Ubuntu 14.04 but nothing better.

I just did following this How do I get a Ralink RT3290 wireless card working? but there is error at step 6 when I typed "make".

This is more information:

$ rfkill list

0: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN

Soft blocked: yes

What should I do? Thank you in advance.

when I type sudo make or make, I got this error

Try changing the command in step 6 of How do I get a Ralink RT3290 wireless card working?

to

sudo make

sudo make install

let us know if the error message persists and exactly what the error is.

Thank you for providing the error message. It appears as if you may not be running the commands in the directory where the source code resides. Try changing to the directory where you extracted the source code and proviide us a list of the contents ls

  • I changed the code already. Even I change the code there are still same errors and I added the error message. Thanks for your help. – user276986 May 3 '14 at 18:27
