Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 15699
rt2500usb driver cannot remain connected
Last modified: 2010-10-28 23:32:05 UTC
In 2.6.32 (and earlier), I was able to use the rt2500usb driver with my D-Link DWL-G122 wireless NIC (ID 2001:3c00 "D-Link Corp. [hex] DWL-G122 802.11g rev. B1 [ralink]"). Now, with 2.6.34-rc3-00191-gdb217de, once I get an IP address via dhcpcd, it immediately looses the connection, with the following message repeated in the syslog:
phy0 -> rt2500usb_set_device_state: Error - Device failed to enter state 3 (-16).
Any chance I could talk you into a git bisect? :-)
iwconfig wlan0 power off
to disable power saving.

I haven't gotten a chance to do so yet, but I am able to do a bisect, if needed :)

I've tried that, and it seems to be working now
ok, no bisect needed then. Patches to fix this issue are on the way. :)
