Hi Bmarkus,

Yes!!! Thank you, it's working now.   :) :)

I installed the firmware-ralikwifi.tcz, and rebooted. But then it didn't work.
I had to add this to my bootlocal.sh:

Code: [Select]
modprobe rt2800lib
modprobe rt2800usb
(this might not be the best solution?)

After a "filetool.sh -b" and a reboot, it worked.

Greetings,
    Gerrelt.

Is it piCore 4.7 or 5.0?

I used piCore 5.0.alpha2.

Hello friends,

I am trying to get the same Ralink adapter to work, but so far no luck.

what i am using-

installed latest tinycore 5 (x86 version)
onboot with firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz , wireless-3.8.10-tinycore.tcz and wifi.tcz
I added the modprobe commands mentioned above to the bootlocal.sh file too.

iwconfig will not show any wireless interface...
Am I missing something?

thank you for the help
