final tweak for RT2500 to get working, Help

Post by mikey0000 » Tue Oct 02, 2007 23:12

Ok i found out last time that the RT2500 driver that was installed be default was stuffed,

so i learnt and did these things
blacklisted the existing RT2500 modules
installed the drivers from
followed the instructions from those for file setup
restarted and rt2500 shows up in lsmod but isnt being used by anything
ifconfig up ra0 gives me a not found error and knetwork manager doesnt have wireless in it anymore

what do i do? also im a newb so if anything isnt clear i probably wont be able to figure it out. btw i can use konsole to a reasonable degree, can someone tell me how to make files in konsole too

thank you
