I have this in my /etc/network/interfaces file :
Which has the effect of turning off power saving mode on my
Code: Select all
Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter
which had the habit of 'dying' every few hours until I implemented it.
Using it on another adapter gives an error but otherwise does no harm. The name is from lsusb which is the chipset it uses and bears no relation whatever to whose name appears on the box (its a no-name special but almost certainly shares the chipset with a brand-name adapters). I have the entire setup including the SSID & password in /etc/network/interface, I don't have a seperate wpaxxxx file linked into the interfaces file.
Don't judge Linux by the Pi.......
I must not tread on too many sacred cows......
