ralink rt2870 Sub_title: not recognized by 431 on lenovo s10-2
hoping to use my puppy on this new s-10, rather than winxp it came with -- when i use network wizard, the 2870 driver is not recognized, though it is on the list of modules -- when i load the module, no interface is detected -- for some reason, linux mint has no problem with this, puppy does -- problem is i much prefer puppy
there is a driver on the Ralink site but I have no clue how to install it properly. also a WebUI for it.
its the fourth and fifth link i believe. fairly recent.
microsoft win7 uses a microsoft supplied driver written/sourced-from by WinDDK whatever that is. i imagine it is merely packaged by MS, developed by ??. There is also a wiki page for a linux project to develop Ralink device drivers. the effort is now disbanded as best I can determine. lots of web discussion on it however...
