Can't connect to wifi network - Ralink 3070

Postby fasset » 2018-01-29 18:34

Hi. I have problems with wifi network - I can see list of SSIDs but can't connect to anyone. Wifi adapter:

- Bus 007 Device 003: ID 148f:3070
Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter

System version:
Linux debian 4.9.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3 (2017-12-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Chipset drivers works (can see SSID). What can I do more to solve this problem? Thanks for any response.

There's a nice wiki or two. I use an rt2870 sometimes it works fine. Has an issue with random mac on networkmanager.

Did you really try *all* of the methods, including network-manager, wicd, connman, and ifupdown? I've used mine with ifupdown and wpa_supplicant+wpa_cli, and also on networkmanager after disabling random mac. I haven't used the other methods.

If you couldn't get any of the many methods to work that is a real mystery. I'm sure if that device was broken in linux it would get some attention, there are plenty of links on the web.

You can check to make sure that specific device is supported here:
https://wiki.debian.org/rt2800usb

Some more odd collection of people with trouble. Be careful, lot of real wacky stuff in these links.

if the problem is random mac address (I suspect it may be) then there is a simple fix.

Edit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and add
Code: Select all
[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no

and then you may (or may not) need to logout/in (or reboot) to make the system use the new configuration. It has worked with a couple of other devices that have had same issue.
