Sitecom Wireless-N USB 300N - WLA-2100 not working.

Mon Feb 11, 2013 10:27 am

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.

Same problem here. Installed my RPi today with the latest version but no luck. Also the German solution didn't work.

Would love to see how this can be fixed.

I ended up returning it, got my money back and bought a known working one. There is now an official pi wifi dongle, see here:
