Default Which WLAN driver to use?

Hi all,

I installed Debian 6 on my HP Pavilion Netbook. Unfortunately the WiFi Card is
not working. I plan to install a driver manually but don't know which driver
to grab.

lspci -vv tells me

02:00.0 Network controller: RaLink Device 539f
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1637
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
Latency: 0, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 5
Region 0: Memory at f0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: <access denied>

among other things. It only tells the number 539f. Does anybody have a
suggestion which driver to use?

Thanks Elias

Google says you own a "rt5390" chipset based adapter.

It seems that support for that card was added to the upstream code
just a few month ago:

Thanks for the link. I was unable to do the procedure described there on my
Debian 6. However I could install the driver on Ubuntu 10.04.

Now I wonder what the problem might be. On Debian the graphical system crashed
after logging in to the wireless network. I wasn't able to extract any
information from the syslog. Does anybody know what the problem could be?

Thanks for the above link. I read the post but I don't know what it means. What
should I do now exactly? Update to a newer kernel?

Thanks Elias

I just want to point out that there are two drivers for your hardware.
One is proprietary and the other is free software. The driver mentioned
at the link above is the proprietary driver from Ralink. You could try
contacting Ralink to get support for that driver.

rt2x00 is the free software driver for your card. This should work but
you might need a new kernel and you might need to edit one line in the
driver. A few days ago there was a post on the rt2x00-users mailing
list, where an HP netbook user said he made a patch to get the driver to
recognize his 539F card:

http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/pipermail/users_rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/2011-May/003786.html

You can also try asking the rt2x00-users mailing list for help.

Thank you for this answer. I will try it on the rt2x00-users list.
