Hi All,


Congratulations for new forum!


I tired to make Ralink RT3070 USB WIFI module on the linux-, i can load the driver rt2800us.ko, but can not loading firmware properly,


modprobe rt2800usb

phy0 -> rt2x00_set_chip: Info - Chipset detected - rt: 3070, rf: 0005, rev: 0201.

rt2800usb 1-1.1:1.0: firmware: requesting rt2870.bin

phy0 -> rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware.
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory


i have been put the rt2870.bin to /lib/firmware directory and add userspace to loading firmware support in kernel as following this -, but i always got such error.


Anyone who faced such error and how i can to solve that? Thank you very much.
