#12055 assigned enhancement

Ralink RT3070 (USB) support

Reported by: haiqu Owned by: jackburton
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Drivers/Network Version: R1/Development

Platform: All


There seems to be no driver for the Ralink RT3070 chip, which is used in many cheap USB wifi extenders such as the Egasky/Mars/Venu A2414N.

Someone with the user name jackburton79 posted driver code to github on Nov 7, 2014 so perhaps he can be contacted about including it in the source tree.

jackburton is a member of the Haiku project. He will probably make his driver part of the sources when it's ready?

I've built and installed this driver, will test it when I get back aboard my yacht which has a device that uses this chip. Although maybe missing USB networking glue will limit usefulness of the test.

This driver is a native one, so it can use USB (what's missing is support for USB in FreeBSD drivers, only). However, there could be another problem, that native drivers can't easily interface with wpa_supplicant to connect to WPA encrypted networks. I don't know if this particular driver has solved this somehow.
