driver for rt5370 chip dongles for D series

Post by juusso » Fri Apr 26, 2013 12:43 pm

Just played around and got success, maybe someone interested in? I know that a lot of nowaday`s cheap dongles from china come on this driver and only the way to get it working on D series TV is to compile proper driver for it, because changing VID&PID won`t do nothing - TV D series support only rt3572.

Here you are:
rt5370sta_gasdeuc.zip
Driver compilled with changed path to driver configuration file.

Code: Select all

#define STA_PROFILE_PATH "/mtd_rwcommon/RT2870STA.dat" 
Install: place content of archive to /mtd_rwcommon

Code: Select all

cd /mtd_rwcommon
insmod rt5370sta.ko
ifconfig ra0 inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx up
where xxx - IP for interface configuration.

Problems i faced - wireless networking configuration trough popup menu is weird needs to be resolved - it shows all found networks as open, and no SSID is shown.

Only way to configure and connect network is from console/trough scripts. Someone could play further and share result?

Hi, thx for the driver, but doesn't work for me, nevertheless using a DWA-140 who has been VID/PID changed
insmod: can't insert 'rt5370sta.ko': file exists

Looks like he doesn't load it
Any help would be welcome, thx

you have to unload existing wifi modules first.

Hello!
First of all thank You for this driver!
If you have some free time could you help me a bit?

So after installed SamyGo tools, and rmmod other wifi drivers:

Code: Select all

rmmod rtnet3572sta
rmmod rt3572sta
and insmod your driver:

Code: Select all

cd /mtd_rwcommon
insmod rt5370sta.ko
ifconfig ra0 inet 192.168.1.45 up
i got:

Code: Select all

ifconfig: ioctl 0x8914 failed: Operation not permitted
what's wrong?
after that samsung smart tv (Mstar, model UE37D5500RW) can see the rt5370 chip, but not even sees any wifi networks at all.

and my ifconfig -a (HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00? :? WTF?)

And if it'll work, how to autoload driver automatically? Now it resets all loaded drivers after reboot and loads rtnet3572sta and rt3572sta instead of rt5370sta again and again...
