    Wireless connection in Arch
    Hello. I installed Arch Linux yesterday. Well, I've a Conceptronic c150ru, which lsusb is: [code]Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp.

    Hello.

    I installed Arch Linux yesterday.

    Well, I've a Conceptronic c150ru, which lsusb is:

    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870 Wireless Adapter

    so I followed this instructions:

    The 2.6.31 kernel caused the rt2870 driver to conflict with other wireless modules. The fix in this thread says that you need [B]to blacklist the rt2800usb rt2x00usb and rt2x00lib modules[/B] by modifying the MODULES array in /etc/rc.conf

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Rt2870#Kernel_2.6.31_module_conflicts

    Then, I've modified the /etc/rc.conf file in this way:

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_Setup#Automatic_setup

    So, I've written this.

    wlan0="dhcp"
    wlan_wlan0="wlan0 essid WLAN_92 key *************"
    INTERFACES=(eth0 wlan0)

    Where the asterisks are letters and numbers.

    But wifi doesn't work. When I write iwconfig, this appears:

    wlan0     Ralink STA  ESSID:"WLAN_92"  Nickname:"RT2870STA"
    Mode:Managed Frequency=2.422 GHz Access Point: 00:1A:2B:05:69:89
    Bit Rate=54 Mb/s
    RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
    Encryption key:off

    Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
    Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

    And at the start it says:

    Starting network [BUSY]
    ...IFFLAGS: No such file or directory
    ...for wireless request "Set Encode" (0B2A) :
    Set failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
    Could not associate wlan0 - try increasing WIRELESS_TIMEOUT and check is WEP or has no security
    [FAIL]

    Well, I think that it's all. If I haven't wifi, I can neither install anything nor update the system.

    RE: wifi on openSUSE
    Hello everybody. I just write to say that I will uninstall openSUSE, because it gives me a lot of trouble. So, I will uninstall it, and I will install either Linux Mint or Mandriva Linux. I do not know. But, when I install one of both, I will also download the latest version of Ndiswrapper, and I will try again to have internet. Well, I hope I will not write here anymore (but I do not make any promises ;) )

    Ok, I'll try that later and write here the driver(s).

    RE: wifi on openSUSE
    Hello. (I don't know why I didn't receive a notification :blink: ) Well, YAST is very difficult to use for me, and when I do the steps of the tutorial ( http://en.opensuse.org/Ndiswrapper_howto ), my YAST seems to work in a different way. Network Manager too. My driver is well loaded. My ndiswrapper module is also well loaded. I don't see any wireless networks. I don't remember my wireless chipset, but I think it's ralink.

    Mmm, I think that I found a solution. I have to install KDE. When I used KDE, it works very well, with no problems. But with GNOME I have that problem.

    RE: Desktop environment doesn't work
    Well, I don't know why happens that. But it's strange. Because sometimes openSUSE starts well, and another times it starts with text mode :S Because of problems with Internet on it, I downloaded some games from sourceforge with my Vista (Rigs of Rods, Vega Strike, No Gravity and Freeorion) and tried to install them on openSUSE. Maybe that is the cause.
