OK, try this:-

Code:
cd ~/2011_0427_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.AE1000

then
Code:
sudo make clean

then (this command must have an active internet connection)
Code:
sudo apt-get install module-assistant

then
Code:
sudo module-assistant prepare

then
Code:
sudo su

then
Code:
make

then
Code:
make install

then
Code:
exit

then
Code:
sudo modprobe rt3572sta


if you get an error again at the "make" command .. can you post the last 10 lines or so from the terminal.

or any other errors prior to that point.

If that doesn't work .. I'll bung Peppermint One ICE in a VM and see if I can work out what's going on.

Everything wet well right up to the last command :( (I tried the command with first the ethernet plugged in then tried with router plugged in... results were the same.)

stanley-desktop 2011_0427_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.AE1000 # exit
exit
stanley@stanley-desktop ~/2011_0427_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.AE1000 $ sudo modprobe rt352sta

My apologies .. typo .. just open a terminal and run:
Code:
sudo modprobe rt3572sta

I've fixed the typo in the other posting too.

OK PCNetSpec...

I'm posting from 'wireless' right here !!!!!!!!

It was really weird though, a window poped up and kept asking...

Enter password for keyring 'Default' to unlock

An application wants access to the keyring 'Default', but it is locked

I put in the password for the router, no go then my regular system password but the window would pop up again and keep asking for the same thing? After backing out of each window the last one appeared saying WPA/WPA2 wants a password. I entered it again for the router and wireless connect activated.... Got bounced of once here while typing this post, reconnected (had to go through all those little windows again) but re-connected OK... anything else I need to do for future access with wireless?

"Thanks"

OK, you probably need to rename the keyring, then when prompted for a new one, leave it blank.

What's the output from:
Code:
ls -a ~/.gnome2/keyrings

Just checking it's the same on Peppermint One as Peppermint 2 before sending instructions :)

If you're finding the connection unstable .. can you also post the output from
Code:
iwconfig

Wireless seems to be running stable now, only that one drop earlier.

Here's the output:

stanley@stanley-desktop ~ $ ls -a ~/.gnome2/keyrings
. .. default default.keyring

Hmmmmm.... how does one go about changing the keyring? This Terminal stuff is completly new to me... or is there someplace with a regular popup window to do it? I might add, I've only been using Peppermint for a few days now, was strictly Puppy Linux but had a Peppermint copy I downloaded way back when I was still using Mint-8 and figured I'd give it a shot... I like the fact it's fairly small and fast, loads quick and has a good repo of programs at your fingertips although, the kernel is rather old (in my latest Puppy Linux I was running a 3.3.2 kernel based on Ubuntu's new Precise build.) but, I do like this rather old Peppermint-Ice better than many, many of the other distro's I've tried and I've tried a lot of them ;) .

In modern Linux, there is nearly always a GUI method for doing things .. BUT ..

I can't remember the PeppermintOS One setup, so I couldn't say whether there's an "popup window" for changing the keyring, or if there is which app .. but that's the beauty of the command line.

Commands -
a) will work irrespective of the default applications and desktop environment.
b) are easier to type on a forum than a long string of "navigate to the "whatever directory, right-click on the blah blah".
c) leave less room for "interpretation" by the recipient.
d) are easy to cut/paste.

Anywho ..

Let's rename the default keyring, which should then get recreated and prompt for a new password when you reboot .. then we'll leave it blank so you're not asked for it again.

Open a terminal, and run:
Code:
cd ~/.gnome2/keyrings

then
Code:
mv -v default.keyring default.keyring.old

Expected output from that command =
Quote:
`default.keyring' -> `default.keyring.old'

If that command runs without error .. REBOOT.

When your system restarts, you will be prompted by "Authentication required by wireless network" .. enter your WEP or WPA key, and click the "Connect" button.

You will THEN be prompted to "Choose password for new keyring" .. leave BOTH fields BLANK, and click the "OK" button.

You will then be warned about "Store passwords unencrypted?" .. click the "Use Unsafe Storage" button.

You should not be prompted for a keyring password for wireless again. :)

The section above in Purple may be slightly different if you're using Wicd rather than NetworkManager .. but all you need to remember is when asked for a "keyring password" LEAVE IT BLANK.

==============

I prefer PeppermintOS Two myself, and wasn't over keen on PeppermintOS One .. it seemed a little unstable to me, but I must add that was just after it was released so may have got better with updates .. IMHO PeppermintOS Two is the best light distro out there :)

There's nothing stopping you from installing a later kernel .. PeppermintOS Two has 2.6.38 by default, but I'm currently running 3.3.2 ;)

Keyring changed... looks like all went well!!!!

"Thanks a bunch PCNetSpec"

Boy after all that I hate to ask you but... is it a big project to upgrade say to the 3.3.2 kernel like you run? I know over in Puppy when the dev's finally started to use the newer kernels many things seemed to work better and for sure much faster.

You're most welcome :)

Hmm .. Installing the 3.3.2 kernel is easy enough, but whether it will grow into a bigger project is at this point impossible to say ..

There are no guarantees that the new kernel won't break some of your third party drivers .. for example it's HIGHLY likely to break the NVIDIA drivers from the repos, requiring installation of later drivers from the NVIDIA website.

Personally, unless there is a feature in the newer kernel that you MUST have .. I wouldn't bother, unless you know how to dig yourself out of any problems that may arise.

If you still want to know how .. probably best to post it as a new topic (this topics title doesn't really cover it) .. and mark this topic [SOLVED], if indeed you consider it solved ?

If you *do* want to try the 3.3.2 kernel, when you start the new topic .. please include the output from:
Code:
inxi -F
