hi TON & amitkr,

can you try this version?

http://www.mediafire.com/file/e2ijzblmxoy/wireless-mod-rt.app.bin-1.31.zip

I've turned of BbpTuning as suggested here.

Thanks SamartP,

Will give it a try.

If I compile the latest drivers from rt2x00.serialmonkey.com.. will that do any good?


Dunno - you're more than welcome to try. I got lots of error when I tried to compile them as they're written for a later version of the linux kernel (needs to be backported I think).


I used a cron job to restart wlan when it fails and have the following error in messages.txt

Code: [Select]
wdtv_ak user.err kernel: rausb0: unable to signal thread
Googled it and found this driver patch.

http://dev.gentoo.org/~steev/files/patches/rt2570-update.patch

Not sure what to do.

Thanks
Amit

It's possible performance the network wifi modifiing RTS Threshold or Fragmentation parameters????

RTS Threshold : 4096 
Frag Threshold : 4096
b/g Mode : G+
4x : Enabled

Edit the RT2870STA.dat file and modify the RTSThreshold and FragThreshold parameters.

Maybe turn off G+/4x?

Hi smartP,

    I changed the wifi parameters, but with my router wifi 802.11g I can't play mkv films... The tx speed is to low...

    If it I change for a router wifi 802.11n, I'll play mkv films correctly???

    Do you recommend me any router??? D-Link DIR-655 or Linksys WRT320N????

Thanks.

I can also confirm that this driver (1.31) works, as it seems after three days use, flawlessly with my Linksys WUSB54GC on WDLXTV-0.5.5.

Here is my rt73sta.dat file:
Code: [Select]
Default]
CountryRegion=6
CountryRegionABand=7
WirelessMode=0
SSID=MySSIDName
NetworkType=Infra
Channel=8
AuthMode=WPAPSK
EncrypType=TKIP
WPAPSK=MyAsciiPassword
TxBurst=0
PktAggregate=0
TurboRate=0
WmmCapable=0
AckPolicy=0;0;0;0
BGProtection=0
IEEE80211H=0
TxRate=0
RTSThreshold=2347
FragThreshold=2346
PSMode=CAM
TxPreamble=0
AdhocOfdm=0
FastRoaming=0
RoamThreshold=70

Note the "CountryRegion=6" - I'm using channel 8 on my local wireless network.

And this is my net.config:
Code: [Select]
HOST=wdtv
MTU=9000
sleep=5
DHCP=no
sleep=5
             
IP=192.168.3.9
GW=192.168.3.1 
NM=255.255.255.0
DNS1=192.168.3.1
DNS2=193.2.1.66
sleep=5                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                 
WLAN_CFG=rt73sta.dat                                                                                             
WLAN_LOAD=rt73.ko                                                                                                 
WLAN_UP=yes                                                                                                       
WLAN_SLEEP=1
I've changed IP adresses in upper copy/paste to not reflect the real IP's I use.

It's the only wireless driver I have sucessfully used for Linksys WUSB54GC, so thank you author smartP - it's great, you're great!

Haven't noticed any problems with connection. As I've said I have it working for more than three days. Copying files over using FTP I get speeds ~ 1.2 MB/sec for 700MB file.

Regards, Milan

Using rt73 adapter (dlink dwl-g122), works great.
Configured for connection with WPA2PSK / TKIP.

My net.config
Code: [Select]
#
# Network configuration file

#You can override the hostname here:

HOST=wdtv

# if you do not set a hostname,a random one is assigned.

# attempt to set jumbo frames
# Your other computers should have same MTU or it will break NFS
#MTU=9000
MTU=1500

#
# Dynamic IP Configuration:

DHCP=yes

#
# Static IP Configuration:  (only if not DHCP)

#DHCP=no
#IP=192.168.0.10
#GW=192.168.0.1
#NM=255.255.255.0
#DNS1=192.168.0.1
#DNS2=205.171.3.65

#
# Optional:  specify time server host:

NTP=pool.ntp.org

#
# WIRED
# (used by S20netmodules.sh)

SUPPRESS_OTHERS="yes"


WLAN_CFG=rt73sta.dat
WLAN_LOAD=rt73.ko
WLAN_UP=yes
WLAN_SLEEP=1

and my rt73sta.dat
Code: [Select]
[Default]
CountryRegion=0
CountryRegionABand=7
WirelessMode=0
SSID=myssidname
NetworkType=Infra
Channel=6
AuthMode=WPA2PSK
EncrypType=TKIP
DefaultKeyID=1
Key1Type=0
Key1Str=
Key2Type=0
Key2Str=
Key3Type=0
Key3Str=
Key4Type=0
Key4Str=
WPAPSK=hexcodeforwpapsk
TxBurst=0
PktAggregate=0
TurboRate=0
WmmCapable=0
AckPolicy=0;0;0;0
BGProtection=0
IEEE80211H=0
TxRate=0
RTSThreshold=2347
FragThreshold=2346
PSMode=CAM
TxPreamble=0
AdhocOfdm=0
FastRoaming=0
RoamThreshold=70
NativeWpa=1

For WPAPSK, I'm using wpa_passphrase to gerenate pre-hashed hex code.

smartP, I have a question : do you plan to implement hotplug ?
If I remove usb stick and reconnect it - or connect it after boot - it will be great if connection can be restored automatically.

nabster I've been all day trying to get my dwl-g122 to work, using a 4GB pen (fat32) with no success. After formatting the pen in FAT16, it started working like a charm... don´t know if it can help you.

Edit for clarification: the behaviour of the leds was the same as yours.

No, it isn't.

That bug is related to the in-kernel driver rt73usb.ko
This module was included in 2.6.24 and subsequent versions of linux kernel.
We cannot use it (rt73usb.ko) in wdtv because the kernel used in wdtv is 2.6.15 (unless someone backports the module, or we can use a newer kernel in wdtv)
Hence, we are using rt73.ko, a legacy module made by ralink itself, and later developed by Rt2x00 oss project, which is no longer being developed. So nobody is working on it to resolve any bug.

nabster are you using a hub, or is your pen with the wireless-mod-rt.app connected directly to the wdtv? I have a hub so I can have pen+wireless dongle+hard drive connected, but the pen has to be connected directly in the wdtv, otherwise I never get wireless.

I'm using a small usb HUB. Connected on it : usb stick, wireless dongle (dwl-g122), hard drive.
It works with all of them connected together.

With another usb HUB, I can't connect my hard drive because of power consumption.

Beware with usb HUBs.
