rt5572 on iMX233

Hi Community,

i try (and fail) to configure a Ralink rt5572 wifi chip at an OLinuXino iMX233.
With this documentation: http://www.eewiki.net/display/linuxonarm/iMX233-OLinuXino i managed to set up a debian 7 with kernel 3.12.

I configured and build the rt5572-driver with this doc: http://www.ctheroux.com/2012/09/ralink-rt5572-based-wifi-usb-dongle-setup-on-ubuntu-12-04/

To build the driver i create a chroot, build the kernel inside of the chroot and finaly build the wifi-driver.

The iMX233 is able to laod the driver-module but as soon as i start wpa_supplicant with: wpa_supplicant -ira0 -Dwext -c /my/wpa_conf.conf the terminal is flooded with this messages:

[  523.190000] Bulk In Failed. Status=-71, BIIdx=0x3, BIRIdx=0x3,actual_length= 0x0

The wpa_supplicant switches to association-state and then the flood starts.

Did anyone manage to get the driver running with any Linux Kernel in 80211n mode on 5GHz frequencies?

Any hints would be kindly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Jan Homann


Good news everyone,

following this description http://bernaerts.dyndns.org/linux/74-ubuntu/229-ubuntu-precise-dlink-dwa160-revb2 i was able to get a raling rt2870 modul running on an iMX233 with 2.4gHz and 5 gHz in N-Mode.
