[Bug 1252962] Re: Ralink RT3290 not working in Saucy


This seems to be https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61621

Basically, commit 9483f40 "rt2x00pci: Use PCI MSIs whenever possible"
has been reverted upstream by commit
dfb6b7c109a7f98d324a759599d1b4616f02c79f and it is already queued for
stable updates (i.e. it should hit Ubuntu kernels very soon).

I've built a test kernel containing this revert and uploaded it here:


Could you please give it a try?  Thanks

  Ralink RT3290 not working in Saucy

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  RT3290 wifi will not connect in 13.10 with wpa on. By removing
  security a connection is achieved but it is poor signal and drops out
  after 5-10 minutes. Trying in 13.04 results in a connection which
  stays up even with wpa so this is a regression. Even in 13.04
  performace is very poor (signal strength, speed) compared to W8.

  Kernal is using the rt2800pci module which appears poorly equiped to
  handle this chip.
