I got a Ralink RT2501/RT2573 (USB wireless adapter) working in Core Linux 477 now.

In dmesg it showed up as "rt73usb". It was automatically detected, "iwconfig" showed it as "wlan0". I had installed "firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz" from 5.x though via onboot.lst so this may have helped.

So all I had to do then was to run "sudo wifi.sh" and connect to the network. This was an open access point.

I also tried a Ralink PCI adapter before. For this I had to do "sudo modprobe rt61pci" before it showed up with iwconfig.

Also helpful was the "rfkill" utility which shows if the adapter is blocked somehow. I found that I had to press the wifi button first to remove the "hard blocked" state. After that I entered "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" to enable the adapter.

So in your case I would do:
"sudo modprobe rt73usb" and see if it then shows up in iwconfig. If yes, enter "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" followed by "sudo wifi.sh".

Hope this helps.

I did not download firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz but I saw rt73usb and modprobe it

Should I reboot first?

Here are the links from my CD firmware maybe this will help you identify which should I modprobe. Thanks.

Since I used Corelinux I had to add firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz, I guess Coreplus already comes with this firmware.

What you list seems to indicate that rt73usb is loaded, but I would just try to load it anyway with "sudo modprobe rt73usb". Maybe it then shows up with iwconfig.

You may also look at dmesg after some time again. I currently have trouble with a Broadcom wifi adapter. After booting the dmesg log looked ok for me, but after unsuccessfully running wifi.sh and other tools I looked at dmesg again and there were several errors reported.

I agree that this is probably not very helpful for you.

You could also compile a  RT5370 usb driver as described here:

This is one of two files sent to you already, though from a different source.   Be nice to see if it or the new driver (compiled with rt5370 support) from the kernel source works with your adapter

Hi!

I do not understand exactly.
Eeveryone gave up :) or solved just i not understand something?

Because i have same problem.

PC: Dell Wyse r0x tinycore current iso stick: Tenda W311Ma
Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Tenda_W311MaTCz .: firmware-raliknwifi wifi usbutils wireless4.2.9-tinycore
installed

when i plug another port :
Dmesg write: usb 1-6: new high-speed USB device number 8 using ehci-pci

sudo  modprope -v  rt2800usb
Dmesg write: usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2800usb
but nothing.

Someone have idea or buy another adapter? (RTL)

Thanks

Support for that chip, 5370, was still experimental (and still is as of 4.8), so it's disabled in our kernel.

You can either build a custom kernel, or get a better supported stick. Atheros ones are excellent.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Is it supported by Windows? If yes you can try ndiswrapper.
