Titel: rt2570 working using 2006-01-RC1  BeitragVerfasst am: 16.09.2006, 06:03 Uhr

I just installed Kanotix 2006-01-RC1

I am now online via my Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter (F5D7050) using the built in rt2570 driver with the kernel that is included with the distro. It was already installed with this USB adapter up as eth1 when using iwconfig

Something is not right with it yet. But, it works fine once you get an IP Address with it using dhclient (which takes two tries due to some kind of strange behavior).

I've got a feeling that some portion of the Operating System is trying to treat it like a wired versus wireless connection because I see odd settings like 11mb/s come up as the speed when using iwconfing the first time around. But, after you get an IP Address using dhclient, it displays the connected speed.

Note that it takes two attempts for some reason (the first attempt seems to correct the speed settings problem, even though it times out, and the second attempt grabs the IP Address quickly as it should).

Using netcardconfig and configuring it the way I'd normally configure a wireless adapter does not solve it. I also played with the Wireless Connection Settings in KDE Control Center and see some odd "can't set speed" errors (again, leading me to believe something is trying to interpret as a wired versus wireless connection).

So, I just left it disabled in KDE Control Center (I just went into it to see if setting it there would make any difference, since using netcardcofig to set it to start at bootup does not work with it).

This adapter shows up as eth1 in Kantoix 2006-01-RC1. In most other distros that support it (including Kanotix 2005-04), it shows up as rausb0 instead.

I'll play with it and try to figure out way it's behaving strangely on startup.

But, at least it does work (and once you get it connected it appears to continue working just fine from what I can tell so far).

So, I'll disable using netcardconfig for now and just use dhclient eth1 (twice) to start it until I can figure out what's happening with it.

Thanks for including support for it.
