Ralink wireless not active

Post by cyrwyn » Wed Oct 03, 2007 2:48

Ralink rt2561 is built into Averatec 7155 (Turion 64) laptop. Works great with PCLOS 2007, but won't activate, meaning gets no signal, no access point in Sabayon 3.4 x86_64 mini. The modules and I think firmware are loaded, "ifconfig" and "iwconfig" shows it as wlan0. I've tried various "iwconfig" settings and "net-setup" to configure it and reconfigured the net and wireless files in /etc/conf.d to no avail. Dhcp is working: plugging into wired (Agere et131x) network starts in a few seconds without configuration. However, I can't use configuration files from PCLOS because the entire configuration and paths are different. Anyone got any clues? Any app that I could emerge that might help configure or tell me what the problem is?
