uBuntu - How to install ralink wireless (RT3562) drivers

I posted this here, because it is not always as simple as it seems on linux. so here's how i did it.

* Either download or copy drivers from CD
- in this example i used original CD that came with it
* on CD, goto folder "Driver for Linux OS"
* extract the content
* go inside the extracted folder using terminal (i renamed that folder to RT3562)
* now type in the following commands to install the driver:

Code: Select all
sudo make

Code: Select all
sudo make install

* Now to load the driver, type in these:

Code: Select all
sudo modprobe rt3562sta

Code: Select all
sudo ifconfig ra0 inet up

* To load driver when linux starts, do the following:

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/modules

- This opens a file called "modules". in there add the line:

Code: Select all

save and close.

This worked just fine for me and rfmon / monitor mode works fine too (using airmon-ng).
