Review of Linux Compatibility

The USB WiFi stick from LogiLink with the product ID WL-0049A has the USB ID 148f:3070

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp.

The stick is fully supported by the Linux kernel module rt2870sta.

In case of Ubuntu 10.04 Draft-N connections are not supported. In this case the backport module has to be installed to achieve the full potential of the stick: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/WLAN/linux-backports-modules.

A simultaneous usage of the kernel modules rt2870sta and rt2x00usb can cause problems. If both modules are loaded can be tested in the following way:

rt2870sta         	488948  0
rt2800usb          	37372  0
rt2x00usb          	11548  1 rt2800usb
rt2x00lib          	29788  2 rt2800usb,rt2x00usb

If both modules are show (as in the example above), both drivers have to be unloaded:

sudo modprobe -rf rt2800usb
sudo modprobe -rf rt2870sta

and only the module rt2870sta should be loaded:

sudo modprobe rt2870sta

In order to prevent loading of both modules at next boot, the module rt2800usb has to added to the blacklist:

echo blacklist rt2800usb | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
