Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

@KernelOops

Thanks for the advice. I've bookmarked the link you posted for future reference. I'll post the results here if I make any further progress.

EDIT: Which USB dongle and/or chipset did you go for?

Regards,
Colin

Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

After a short break, I've tried this laptop again. Still no joy, however. We recently changed broadband suppliers and I gave the router a different name. I use paired TP-LINK powerline adapters to boost wifi strength in my son's bedroom. His CentOS 7 laptop had occasional network problems and would ...

Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

If the interface shows up in ip link show then you already have the module for it built and loaded. Hello again @TrevorH I've tried your suggestion and the command shows: 1 root@stream# ip link show 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen ...

Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

Try it with a cable instead and see if the problem goes away. If it does then it's your wireless connection is flakey though the cause of that will still need to be found. Hi @TrevorH Again, apologies for the late response to your suggestion. The HP Stream has no onboard ethernet port so I had to b...

Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

If all your errors are from yum and against the EPEL repo then I'd be tempted to just blame them. Their mirror network is very shonky and often suffers from problems like that. Now if you have examples that are not yum complaining about EPEL then that's different. @TrevorH, thanks for your response...

Could an admin please move this post to the appropriate board if this is not the right place...

Re: USB microsd card problem

There is a little processor in the USB adapter. Unless it is specifically SDXC compatible, it will not work with 64G and higher SD cards. Hi Gerald, I didn't know the adapter had any electronics inside it. I thought it was just a dumb connector. You live and learn :-) Anyway, I bought a new adapter...

Re: USB microsd card problem

64G sd cards are SDXC. 32G sd cards are SDHC. Are you sure your reader is SDXC compatible? Hi Gerald, Thanks for your input. The "reader" is just an adapter to make a microsd card fit into a normal usb port. I don't even know if there's anything electronic inside it, just a set of gold contacts. As...
