Dynamode USB Wifi Dongle issues

Sat Jul 13, 2013 9:33 pm

Hi,

I recently bought a Dynamode WL-700N-RXS USB wifi dongle for the raspberry pi so that I could use it with xbmc.

Exact model is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dynamode-WL-700 ... rrypi+wifi

When I plug in the adaptor from lsusb I can see:

[email protected]:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:c509 Logitech, Inc. Cordless Keyboard & Mouse
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp.

It does not tell me the chipset but from amazon I can see it is: Ralink 5370 Chipset with lower power design

I then download firmware for it as follows:

sudo apt-get install firmware-ralink

Once this completes if I can run lsmod it returns:

Module Size Used by

xt_state 660 1

spi_bcm2708 4380 0
i2c_bcm2708 2872 0
i2c_core 20536 1 i2c_bcm2708


Which shows that the module/driver has not loaded.

Can anyone please advise?

Thanks :)

Hi

Yes same here.

After quite a lot of digging it looks like there is more than one version of WL-700N-RXS.

Mine has this P/N on the packaging V36WL-700N-RXS, it doesn't work OTB with wheezy.
Other version/versions have a red ring around the dongle and are based on a chipset that the kernel supports, according to some.

Mine reports.
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp.
After a lot of searching it looks like the chipset is ralink/mediatek MT7601 not yet supported by Linux kernel. Hence the 7601 Pid.

The mini CD that came with it has the source for a ralink linux driver but one of the folders is corrupt on the one I got. email to Dynamode support asking for download has yet to be answered.

So after more searching found this.
http://www.logicsupply.com/media/manual ... ronBBB.pdf

Which has some instructions and a link to a complete linux MT7601 chipset driver source code.

I have been able to compile on the Pi and it seems to work so far as device ra0.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I read the manual, and didn't get very far, is there any way you could please translate the instructions to work with the raspberry pi terminal (raspbian).

I'd really appreciate it :D

thanks in advance

It it were an Ralink RT5370, it would just work on a later version of Raspdian (post September 2012). It doesn't need any patches for drivers.

lsub reports an RT5370 as

Code: Select all

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter
(or at least the 3 I own do)

When I brought my Dynamode dongle I THOUGHT i was going to receive the 5370, however at some point the manufacturer changed the chip-set so my dongle shows up as

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp

unfortunately, this device doesn't appear to work natively :(

Depending on your location and if you're not adverse to spending a little more dosh :

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261226675344

This IS an RT5370 .

Could be an easy answer.

Hi Chandar.

Will see what I can do. There were quite a few steps involved.

Do you already have gcc compiler make etc installed and working?

Cheers

erm, no sorry, I haven't got that much experience with Linux, thank you though, once you have the guide drawn up I'll try and read between the lines and see what packages etc. I need.

Thanks again :)

OK Here goes. I did say there was quite a few steps involved. I think the sequence is correct.

This howto is for models with MT7601 chipset.
Not units that report 5370, these should work with Raspbian wheezy out of the box.

First plug dongle into a USB port and boot your Pi.
Then

[email protected] ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp.

If you have a device that looks like the above then you have the MT7601 version and this doesn't work with the standard drivers at time of posting.
This document gives a link to the ralink driver source for MT7601. It doesn't seem to be on the ralink website.

http://www.logicsupply.com/media/manual ... ronBBB.pdf
I am not sure how long this will be available.

This is how I built and installed it.

Install compiler and make tools.

Do this from a root terminal or add sudo infront of commands

[email protected]:/home/pi apt-get update
[email protected]:/home/pi apt-get upgrade
[email protected]:/home/pi apt-get install gcc make

===========================================================

Get the driver source.
From normal user terminal

[email protected] ~ $ mkdir src
[email protected] ~ $ cd src
[email protected] ~/src $ wget https://googledrive.com/host/0B_JlgOR4V ... LS.tar.bz2
[email protected] ~/src $ tar -xvjpf DPA_MT7601*

===========================================================

Get kernel sources - needed to build the driver

[email protected] ~/src $ mkdir kernel
[email protected] ~/src $ cd kernel
[email protected] ~/src/kernel $ wget https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/ar ... 6.y.tar.gz
[email protected] ~/src/kernel $ tar xvfz rpi-3.6.y.tar.gz

===========================================================

Prepare the kernel/module sources so the driver can build with them.

[email protected] ~/src/kernel $ sudo ln -s /home/pi/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y /lib/modules/3.6.11+/build
[email protected] ~/src/kernel $ cd linux-rpi-3.6.y
[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ make mrproper
[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ gzip -dc /proc/config.gz > .config
[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ make oldconfig
[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ make prepare
[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ make modules_prepare
[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ wget https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... le.symvers

===========================================================

Build the driver. You will see a lot of warnings just ignore them.

[email protected] ~ $ cd src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS/
[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ make all

===========================================================

Install the driver. You should read the README_STA_usb in the MODULE folder for config info in the RT2870STA.dat.

[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ sudo cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ sudo cp MODULE/os/linux/mt7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ sudo cp UTIL/os/linux/mtutil7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ sudo cp NETIF/os/linux/mtnet7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ depmod -a

============================================================
Now reboot with the WL-700N-RXS inserted in a USB port.

If you do an ifconfig -a you should see ra0 as a network device.

Now you have the driver you need to config the wireless networking many people have posted info on how to do this.

hello again, thank you very much for all of your help and support, I have reached the last few instructions that require me to copy these files into the wireless drivers:

mt7601Usta.ko
mtutil7601Usta.ko
mtnet7601Usta.ko

however the files are not present in their respective directories, can you think of any reason why this might be.

PS I was very careful to follow each step as documented.

Thanks again for all of your help and support :)

That must mean that the driver build failed for some reason.

[email protected] ~/src/DPA_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.3_20130717_LS $ make all

Run the above command again and see if you see any messages beginning with error before it stops.
Post them here and I will see if I can tell what the issue is.

Ha

I think that's an easy one.

This one is wrong.
[email protected] ~/src/kernel $ sudo ln -s /home/pi/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y /lib/modules/3.6.11+/build linux-rpi-3.6.y

Should have been.
[email protected] ~/src/kernel $ sudo ln -s /home/pi/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y /lib/modules/3.6.11+/build

Possibly didn't work as it was. Not sure how I got that typo in.

That creates a directory called "build" in /lib/modules/3.6.11+/ which isn't there at the moment hence the build failed.
Do an ls /lib/modules/3.6.11+/ after running it to make sure the build directory is there.
Then run make all command again.

the build finished this time and the three files have been copied over, after rebooting im still not seeing ra0 or any other signs that the wireless adapter is there other than lsusb to confirm it is plugged in.

Don't worry if you unable to help past this pointg (it could be anything from here)

thanks so much for all your help and guidance on the matter, I really appreciate it :)

Try lsmod command.
The list it returns should include these 3 lines which means the kernel has seen the dongle and loaded the modules that you just compiled.

mtnet7601Usta 34716 1
mt7601Usta 1037966 1 mtnet7601Usta
mtutil7601Usta 70481 2 mt7601Usta,mtnet7601Usta

If they are there then it is probably working and you need to starting editing your /etc/network/interfaces.
Using ra0 instead of wlan0 that you will see in other posts.

Make sure you do "ifconfig -a" I'm pretty sure I give me an Ra0 entry before I did any network config.
But I may have put an entry in the interfaces file first.

They aren't loading.

did you do

sudo depmod -a

again after copying them into /lib/modules/... ?
that steps important otherwise the kernel wont know about the modules.

Tells us it recognised it needed to load the driver module.

But it looks like its something to do with kernel/module version.

Have you ever done an rpi-update. If not the kernel source downloaded may be newer than the kernel you are running.
Which is possibly causing the problem.

I haven't, i am doing so now,

do you think, i'll need to build and compile the kernel again?

also, if you don't mind my asking how much experience do you have with Linux, it blows my mind how you are so knowledgeable, and how quick you were to see a fault :D

Hopefully I think after doing an rpi-update you should just be able to copy the mt*.ko files over to /lib/modules/... again.
Because the source you have should match the latest build.

The rpi-update will replace the old /lib/modules.

Don't forget depmod -a

If not you may have to start again from

[email protected] ~/src/kernel/linux-rpi-3.6.y $ make mrproper.
.
Also a make clean will be needed before make all in the driver source directory.

Don't mind you asking. I've been using Unix/Linux on and off for 20+ years.

thanks again for all your help :)
