wlan doesnot work after upgrade to Maverick

Asked by Charles Hensgens on 2010-09-12

Yesterday (11SEP10) I upgraded to the beta version of Maverick. After the upgrade process I could not get a connection with my wlan it looks like the dhcp doesnot give an ipaddress. Reverting back to the 32 kernel everything worked as it supposed to do.

Hey Charles Hensgens,

You will receive great help over at Maverick Meerkat Testing and Discussion

Thanks wojox, that solved my question.

Thanks Wojox,

I had a look over there and found that it most probably is bug #594866 [Maverick][2.6.35] RT2860 (ralink) support seems to be broken (it fails to connect to secured wireless networks).
I had it working with ndiswrapper in the 3 to 4 previous ubuntu versions but now it apparently with kernel 2.6.35 it breaks. Hopefully it will be fixed. Now I have to use the old kernel and then my firefox is broken and have to use konqueror instead.

Greetz,
Charles
