    Sadly, the driver that you posted will not compile for me. I have the same card as this fellow.

    Code:
    none2@pci0:3:1:0:       class=0x028000 card=0x30621814 chip=0x30621814 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Ralink Technology, Corp.'
        class      = network
        bar   [10] = type Memory, range 32, base 0xe2000000, size 65536, enabled
        cap 01[40] = powerspec 3  supports D0 D3  current D0
    

    I have tried several drivers without success.

    I am running 8.2 amd64.

    Thanks!

    Try this attached driver and post the output when you run the command
    Code:
    make
    within the directory of the Makefile

    if there really was an error it might of been because I forgot to clean the old one.

    If are sure there is no compile error this time then to get it working (requires super user permissions):
    Code:
    cp rt2860.ko /boot/modules/
    chmod 555 /boot/modules/rt2860.ko

    load it up without rebooting:
    Code:
    kldload rt2860.ko

    set up the wlan now:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev rt28600

    Then do your ifconfig things on the newly created wlan0 and it should work. Instruction on first post for boot time config.

    Hello,

    I just installed FreeBSD for the first time and I don't have an ethernet connection (only wireless). My PCI adapter's model is WMP600N which I believe is supported by egorenar's rt2860 driver. I compiled the code with make but when I write #./rt2860.sh
    I get an error saying the command doesn't exist.

    I saw someone using kldload, but when I try it I get an error.

    Code:
    #kldload ./rt2860.ko
    link_elf: symbol ieee80211_amrr_tx_complete undefined
    kldload: can't load ./rt2860.ko : no such file or directory


    I used chmod +x on both files in case it was the problem. And in rt2860.sh I changed
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh

    to
    Code:
    #!/bin/csh

    (but I've been told to forget about the .sh file.)

    So I also tried copying rt2860.ko in /boot/modules. Changed the rights with chmod 555 /boot/modules/rt2860.ko but again
    Code:
    kldload rt2860.ko
    link_elf: symbol ieee80211_amrr_tx_complete undefined
    kldload: can't load ./rt2860.ko : no such file or directory


    I am quite the newbie with UNIX, is there something more I should have done?

    Thanks.

    Hi Wani, make sure you have got the latest source and you have chosen the correct one for your hardware and FreeBSD version.

    Do a make clean in its directory and then build and install it as usual.

    If that doesn't work then try rebuilding your kernel.

    hi,

    is there still development on this driver? It seems at least 15 months old.

    Did anyone try it in FreeBSD9? Are there plans to integrate it into BASE?

    Open a new topic, because your request has little to do with the subject of this topic.

    Hi guys, I'm new on this forum, I've installed freebsd FreeBSD 10.0 a few days ago on my Acer Aspire 1300 notebook and I have no experience with *BSD systems. My notebook didn't have a wireless chip, so I bought a USB Wifi dongle with the Ralink rt2870 chip. Can I install this driver on my notebook? Or, is there another way to get it working? Thanks.

    Solved upgrading FreeBSD to the latest 10.0-RC3 and configuring settings as described in Wireless Network, from the official guide. Hope that can be useful :)
