Card has intermittent "lag spikes" every 10 seconds. It's only a problem if you are using latency intensive applications(i.e. online games). Restricting data rate to 9 Mbps will fix the issue. This is hardware related as I have the same problem in WinXP. Tested w/ WPA security.

Works beautifully in Hardy 8.04. WPA works. Continues to work in Intrepid 8.10, Jaunty 9.04, Karmic 9.10, Lucid 10.04 and Maverick 10.10

This seems to be another version of this card! Tested on Breezy and Dapper Flight 6. Breezy: must compile source code from Ralink website, and perform a few other steps. I will write a howto of my method. Dapper: as yet (Flight 6 version), the card is recognised and driver loaded, but doesn't seem to work as cannot connect to router. Gutsy: known to work, at least in unencrypted, WEP and WPA2 modes. For WPA/PSK, use the original Ralink driver together with their wpa-supplicant patch; also, don't expect it will work with automatic configuration.

N/A (more than likely)

Yes

Yes

Works well with the stock Madwifi drivers, have had issues when trying to use the "next-gen" drivers. seeing as it works out of the box, I'm sure it will work with an install. Since other atheros cards support WPA and WEP, this one should too. Tested with Ubuntu Dapper on 64-bit.

Hard freeze when rtl8180 module loads (Bug #368679). Avoid anything with this chip. If the device is not removable then blacklist the rtl8010 module.

RT3062

No

Yes

No

Tested with 10.10. Had to compile the Ralink drivers for RT3062 and blacklist the rt2800 and rt2x00 modules. Running WPA & WPA2 encryption without problems. Note that this post has the solution with prepared drivers to download and install, running on Kubuntu 11.10

RT2860

Yes

Yes

Yes

Works in 9.04. Full out of the box support when connecting to a WEP secure network. Not tested on a WPA network but assuming it has been compiled properly, the driver should also work out of the box with WPA.

Tested in 10.04, but it won't connect to WPA/WPA2 mixed networks. I fixed this by setting my wireless encryption to WPA2 Personal only.

Yes

works with Jaunty out of box (at low speed 54Mbps). Does not work with Karmic out of box, but fix shown in next column. Works in Oneiric 11.10 out of the box.

For Karmic, add "blacklist rt2800usb" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and reboot system

NO

NO

Does not work in 9.10 beta - lots of comments on web that it doesn't seem to work. The NSDIWrapper driver doesn't work either - unsupported function gives an error. The RALink source code doesn't compile either - many missing symboles

RT3070STA

usb

?

Yes

NO

Works with 8.04 LTS - RT3070STA driver from Edimax compiles (need to compile with support for NetworkManager, also need to copy RT2870STA.dat as RT3070STA.dat in driver root directory), connects to open and WPA networks, monitor mode doesn't work. Newer RT3070 driver from Ralink compiles, but card is not recognized.

RT3070STA

usb

?

Yes

NO

Works with 10.04 LTS - RT3070USB driver from Ralink. "make" (ignore /tftpboot error), then "sudo make install DAT_PATH=/etc/Wireless/RT2870STA DAT_FILE_NAME=RT2870STA.dat" (2870 filename is hard-coded in driver). Add "blacklist rt2800usb" and "blacklist rt2870sta" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and reboot.

8192cu?

usb

?

No

NO

To make work with 10.04 LTS and 10.10 First sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic, then download the driver from: http://www.edimax.com/, then extract the folder named rtl8192CU from under driver to Desktop/rtl8192CUdriverfolder... then in a Terminal: make, sudo make install, sudo modprobe 8192cu. You may need to replug the USB adapter. After a new kernel or linux-image do as follows: cd Desktop/rtl8192CUdriverfolder... make clean, make, sudo make install, sudo modprobe 8192cu. To make work with 11.04 do the following in addition to the above, replace init_MUTEX(prwlock) in os_dep/osdep_service.c with a sema_init(prwlock,1)

The Edimax EW-7711UAn works "out of the box" with 12.04 LTS using the rt2800usb drivers built into the kernel .. Just plug-in and go
