Linksys WUSB54G 802.11b/g Wireless USB adapter

PCLinuxOS Version :2013.07 Desktop Environment: KDE 4.10.5 Known problems or issues: May connect but not receive data. There are three versions of this device (v1, v2, and v4). Problem occurs consistently with v4. Kernel driver has problem with power management.

To fix: Type in terminal as root:
Code:
iwconfig wlan0 power off

Code can be entered (as root) at the bottom of this file:
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.local
This will make it persistent upon boot.

Linksys WUSB600N v2 USB

PCLinuxOS Version: PCLOS2010.12 Desktop Environment: KDE 4.6.1 Other Comments: Known problems or issues:

Steps to setup
 1. Check your device to verify it's the WUSB600N version 2
Code:
 lsusb |grep 1737
This should return:
Code:
 ...: ID 1737:0079 Linksys
 2. Download and unpack the driver
Go to ralink tech and download the driver for chipset RT3572.
 3. Edit the file .../os/linux/config.mk" in the downloaded package to get wpa_supplicant and Networkmanager support
I did the following changes:
Code:

HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y
HAS_QOS_DLS_SUPPORT=y
HAS_DOT11N_DRAFT3_SUPPORT=y
HAS_DOT11_N_SUPPORT=y
HAS_STATS_COUNT=y

 4. Add the USB ID of the adapter in file ".../common/rtusb_dev_id.c" under section: #ifdef RT35xx. See below (second last line) for detailed information:
Code:

#ifdef RT35xx
{USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x3572)}, /* Ralink 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x1740,0x9801)}, /* EnGenius 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x0DF6,0x0041)}, /* Sitecom 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x0DF6,0x0042)},
{USB_DEVICE(0x04BB,0x0944)}, /* I-O DATA 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x1690,0x0740)}, /* 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x1690,0x0744)}, /* 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x5A57,0x0284)}, /* Zinwell 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x167B,0x4001)}, /* 3572 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}, /* Linksys WUSB600Nv2 */
#endif // RT35xx //

 5. Enter the main directory of the package. As the ROOT user make and install the driver.
Code:
 make
 make install

 6. Blacklist other drivers
Open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Code:
 sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Put the following lines at the end of the file: Code:

blacklist rt2800usb
blacklist rt2x00usb
blacklist rt2x00lib
blacklist rt2870

 7. Reboot and enjoy

Compiling the needed driver:
Please be sure you have a wired connection.
Download the driver tarball from here
When you have the file on your desktop, right-click it and select Extract Here. Open the folder it extracts and go down to drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt2800.
In the file /drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt2800.h around line 54 add the line as I have highlighted:

* RF3053 2.4G/5G 3T3R(RT3883/RT3563/RT3573/RT3593/RT3662)
* RF5360 2.4G 1T1R

In a terminal:

cd Desktop/compat-wireless-2.6.39-1 <--or whatever version was extracted, if not compat-wireless-2.6.39-1
su
./scripts/driver-select rt2x00
make
make install
exit

When there is an upgrade to the kernel you will need to recompile this driver:

In a terminal

cd Desktop/compat-wireless-2.6.39-1
su
./scripts/driver-select restore
./scripts/driver-select rt2x00
make clean
