I just installed Debian as it described in http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/.

I have conceptronic usb wifi that are supported by the rt2570 driver.

So, I want to install this module in my original kernel. The problem is that I don't know how to do it. I'm a newbee.

I found http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php?title=Debian_rt2500_Howto and http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/DebianSlug/InstallRT2570 and these differ.

For the other hand, I don't want to download kernel headers as it described in http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/DebianSlug/InstallRT2570. I want to build myself. But I don't know how.

In resume, what's the easy and standard way for inserting rt2570 module and that usb wiki key works?

There are packages in debian 9at least in testing/unstable) for the
rt2x00 driver.

apt-get install rt2x00-source
m-a a-i -t rt2x00

It might work.  Not sure if it is arm compatible or not.

There is also rt2500-source and rt2570-source for the older variant of
the driver.

Mmm... so rt2x00-source is the new driver?. I not knew it.
It seems that you use the same procedure as http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php?title=Debian_rt2500_Howto with rt2x00 instead of rt2570.

Anyone could confirm that the procedure described in http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php?title=Debian_rt2500_Howto is better than


So, I have to do:

# apt-get install rt2x00-source
# module-assistant auto-install -t rt2500-source
# reboot
# configuring the network: ifconfig -a ....

Why the -t?
Anyone could confirm if rt2x00-source works in arm and the differences in performance with the old rt2570-source (in web page it's said that rt2x00 is yet in beta state)

Thanks a lot,
