Ralink RT5390 WiFi not working

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: kernel Version: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Keywords: RT5390 rt2800usb Cc:


Hi, I'm trying to use USB WiFi dongle based on Ralink RT5390 and have no success.
My router is ASUS WL-500gP v2. I try to flash Barrier Breaker 14.07 (r44507), then install kmod-usb2 and kmod-rt2800-usb with dependencies.
In dmesg output I can see
[ 16.740000] ieee80211 phy1: rt2x00_set_rt: Info - RT chipset 5390, rev 0502 detected
[ 16.800000] ieee80211 phy1: rt2x00_set_rf: Info - RF chipset 5370 detected

So my router can see the dongle, but the dongle can't associate with anything. And there are no errors in dmesg output.
I also tried to build Barrier Breaker without mac80211 patches 910-00, 910-01, 925 that are listed in tickets 13951 and 17679. But that solutions are for RT5370 and doesn't work for my RT5390.

With Attitude adjustment 12.09 result seems to be the same.

Maybe, rt2800lib.c or rt2800lib.h needs some correction? Probably, something similar to the patch 910-02, offered at the end of the ticket 13951.

I'm not a programmer, but it seems to me that all Ralink devices need to be initialized with specific parameters, and my dongle is not correctly supported now.

PS: I can't apply patch 910-02, it causes an error during building. Instead I build without obstructing patches.

lsusb thinks it is 5370:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter

I think, the ticket is totally wrong. Sorry for inconvenience. Please, delete
