[EN] (solved) Wireless trouble with D-link dwa-125
« on: 2012/09/15, 07:05:43 »
I'm trying to get a D-link dwa-125 wireless USB adapter to work.

As directed by the Bluewater manual, I ran fw-detect and followed the instructions to install firmware-ralink and to run modprobe multiple times.  Every time I ran modprobe, I got the same error message:
Quote
libkmod: ERROR ../libkmod/libkmod-config.c:684 kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/fbdev-blacklist.conf line 6: ignoring bad line starting with 'fb'
FATAL: Module rt2800lib is in use.


Networking is not my strength, and I have no idea what to do next.  Help!

In case it helps, here is the complete fw-detect output:
Quote
Detected driver that requires firmware to operate
-------------------------------------------------

#
# Follow these instructions to obtain the correct firmware
# and activate the rt2800lib driver:

apt-get update
apt-get install firmware-ralink
modprobe -r rt2800lib
modprobe rt2800lib

You must first configure apt to install this non-free software,
refer to the offline manual that came with this distribution.

Provide the output of

Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep ralink


That might help someone of the experts here.

Let's have a look at the file /etc/modprobe.d/fbdev-blacklist.conf -- there seems to some issue with it.
System76 Oryx Pro, Intel Core i7-11800H, SSD 970 EVO Plus;  Asus ROG STRIX X299-E, Core i7-7740X, Nvidia GTX-1060, dual monitors, SSD 860 EVO

Upon opening the case, it turned out that the laptop has an internal wireless card that had been unplugged.  :-\ After fixing that, everything works fine—without needing the wireless adapter.

Thanks, everyone!
