I had my Sveon SNT1015, having chipset Ralink RT2830/RT3070, up and running nicely in my Ubuntu 16.10. The proper driver got installed automatically at SysOp installation time.

Then I tried to install de driver that came with a new Dual band WiFi adapter and somehow, while following the instructions to compile and install the new driver, the driver for RT3070 got erased or damaged. The driver for the new device did not compile (As Usual when I try with drivers that come with hardware) but now, I lost the driver that was working perfectly for my old RT3070 / Sveon SNT1050.

I have tried to install the linux driver that come with the Sveon, but Guess..! It won't compile or make either.

The RT3070 must be supported in the Ubuntu installation because the device was detected and configured perfectly at Ubuntu installation time.

IS there a simple way to download and install the driver that was originally installed without having to squeeze my brains trying to make and install the driver from scratch???

I get the following output form lsusb and dmesg:

    In terminal do a modinfo rt2800usb, and a grep -i rt2800usb /etc/modprobe.d/* and edit your question to show us the results. – heynnema Feb 10 '17 at 21:14

    Possible duplicate of How to install RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Driver? – waltinator Feb 12 '17 at 15:13

While installing another driver, the install process disabled the standard RT2830/RT3070 driver. This can be seen when we do the following:

$ modinfo rt2800usb

This shows us that the driver still exists.

$ grep -i rt2800usb /etc/modprobe.d/*
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:blacklist rt2800usb

it shows us that the rt2800usb kernel driver is blacklisted, which means it'll never load.

The fix is to edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and remove the line, or comment out the line, containing blacklist rt2800usb.

In terminal type gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, delete or comment out the line, save and quit gedit, and you should reboot, and try your device again.

  • +1 Bravo. Well done. Nice job figuring out it was blacklisted. I got pulled away to repair a dryer. (One must keep the wife happy or life becomes painful.) ;-) Close vote retracted – Elder Geek Feb 12 '17 at 0:26
