Bug#658067: Device ID missing from Firmware-Ralink
My Wireless USB Adapter's ID is not listed in the firmware-ralink
package in Stable, Testing, and Sid.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1737:0078 Linksys WUSB100 v2 RangePlus Wireless
Network Adapter [Ralink RT3070]
In Squeeze I have to perform the following workaround to get the device to work:
echo 'install rt2870sta modprobe --ignore-install rt2870sta ;
/bin/echo "1737 0078" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2870/new_id' | tee
modprobe -rf rt2870sta
echo rt2870sta | tee -a /etc/modules
I am currently using Debian Stable 6.04 AMD64
Kernel Version: 2.6.32-5-amd64
As I said, this problem also occurs with the firmware-ralink package
in Testing and Sid, however the workaround provided does not work in
anything but Stable.
