Hi everyone,
I'm working on a MSI wind u210 (Ralink rt3090). When I get up
my wireless card it through the following error
Quote:
ifconfig wlan0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted

I try with the kernel drivers, the staging drivers and downloaded
from the Ralink page without success.

The weird thing is, some kernels before (until linux-2.6.32-gentoo-r7),
it works perfect with the Ralink drivers downloaded from their page.

Thanks!

There's your problem: missing firmware blob.

Yeah!, your right. I Realized some days ago about that.
I founded in my /lib/firmware directory a file rt3090*.bin but it seems not to be working.

Today after reading your answer (from roarinelk) I went to /lib/firmware and rename a file
named rt2860.bin to rt3090.bin and seems to be working.

I will test it during the day and go back to tell you if its working OK.
Thank you.

I was having the exactly same problem, and "sys-kernel/linux-firmware" was the answer. Thanks.

Sad thing is, I did solve the problem after reading this post a long time ago, but a while later, I completely forgot what I did, so I had to do the same fumbling and search. I hope I don't forget this time.
