Hi everybody,

I just got my raspberry pi and I'm very excited.
The only problem I have now is setting up my wlan with the Sitecom Wireless-N USB 300N - WLA-2100.

I'm running the latest Raspbian “wheezy”

lsusb:
0DF6:006C Sitecom Europe B.V.

and i've updated using the following commands:
Code: Select all
aptitude update && aptitude install firmware-ralink


Using iwconfig i see no network adapters.
Can anyone help me? or do I have te get another wifi dongle?

Anyone?

After a lot of googling I figured out that the 0DF6:006C was not yet in the standard raspbian release.
Is there a way to edit a file so that it thinks it is one of the verified usb dongles from sitecom?

Their is a new release of Raspbian "Wheezy" 2013-02-09-wheezy-raspbian.zip

http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads

When typing LSUSB does it state the Ralink Chipset model ?
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

I've installed the Raspbian "Wheezy" 2013-02-09 on my SD card.
And unfortunately LSUSB does not state the Ralink Chipset model.

Same problem here.

This thread on a German Mint forum has some suggestions that did not work for me. Crashed Pi, in fact.
