(Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

Good Evening!

I need a little help with my new Panda Wireless USB Adapter. The model is PAU06. The chipset is RT5372. This thing will not connect. It does see all the networks in the neighborhood. When I plug a different adapter in at the same time, the system recognizes and states exactly what it is.
When I lspci -v, it does not show up. Only the Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 controller is listed.
When I lsusb, the adapter shows up on the usb bus.
When I lsmod, the following modules are listed and in order:
Module             Size     Used by
rt2800usb          32768    0
rt2x00usb          24576    1 rt2800usb
rt2800lib         122880    1 rt2800usb
rt2x00lib          61440    3 rt2800lib,rt2800usb,rt2x00usb
iTCO_wdt           16384    0
mac80211          802816    3 rt2800lib,rt2x00lib,rt2x00usb
usbcore           290316    6 usbhid,rt2800usb,rt2x00usb,ehci_hcd,ehi_pci

rfkill is installed. The firmware is installed. The cable modem is Arris TG862 (Spectrum/TW/BrightHouse). This SOB is obsolete. I can't get into the modem menu. It seems to be locked down.

I screwed around and moved the system to buster from a clean install through a wired connection in another room. The PAU06 was NOT hooked up to this computer until I did that move to buster. That's why I didn't copy all the actual output. If I have to, I'll lug the thing back into the other room and hook it up.

BTW, I've tried Gentoo from the tarball. I know. Glutton for punishment. This box was running CrunchBang Waldorf since it came out, it's a playground.

Thank you, gentlemen!

Edit: For grins and giggles, I found an old installation of XP and loaded up the XP drivers. It does work. So it's got to be the modules. I wonder if I have to blacklist or install the Fedora driver.

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

Strange, you should be up and running...

https://wiki.debian.org/rt2800usb

Modprobe the driver?

sudo modprobe rt2800usb

And check?

iwconfig

sudo modprobe rt2800usb returns nothing.

iwconfig returns:

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

Output of apt-cache policy, please...

apt-cache policy firmware-misc-nonfree

If that shows Installed: none, you'll have to hook back up to a hardline and install the package.

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

So I did the apt-cache policy firmware-misc-nonfree and it was there. So I decided to try the clean install again. I didn’t  hook the system to an ethernet cable for grins and giggles.
So here’s what happened. Run through the installer. It identified the device asked for the password. Wouldn’t connect. I did it again. Wouldn’t connect. I did a continue. The installer asked for the ESSID. Entered that and then the password. The SOB connected. System installed! Go to do the updates and this MF won’t connect. Verified password. Ran through all the commands again. Only difference was the installed version. It was the stretch version. MF still won’t connect. FML. The darn thing sees the router. Just won’t connect. Need more beer. LOL!

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

I just installed an old LMDE I had laying around. This effing PAU06 is recognized and working. DAFUQ? Where do I look for dif? Is it the kernel? Sooooo. The usb card works during the setup. It works on an old LMDE. BUT the fucker doesn't work on BL. FML. The LMDE Kernel is 3.16.

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

First of all, I applaud you for posting this in the correct forum (K & H and not Basic Support) *golf clap*

Sometimes we have forum members who have similar hardware, or lots of spare time, and can troubleshoot this with you, sometimes not.

Panda USB PAU06? My bad, I'd recommend going to the source...

http://www.pandawireless.com/Drivers%20 … eless.html

http://www.pandawireless.com/download/L … .3.tar.bz2

If that fails, I'd just install that old LMDE ISO and we can walk you through upgrading it and Bunsenfying it.

Path of least resistance, the goal is to run Linux.

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

Thanks. I thought this was the appropriate forum since the problem seemed to be a driver issue and there was interaction with the kernel and system communication. I looked at the website and a bunch of others. This works for some folks and not for others.  Might just get a powerline or another usb adapter unless I can find a pci card cheap. So I'll just consider this as continuing education. The box is not my main box. I just have a habit of putting GNU/Linux on any machine I run across. Thanks again, I'll leave this here in case anyone happens across a solution before I do. Have a great day!

Re: (Solved) Panda PAU06 wireless usb adapter will not connect.

Finally got the durn thing to work!!!!!!

Did a "rfkill list". Got soft blocked=yes. Hard block=no, so "rfkill unblock all".

Added:

[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no


to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

at the bottom.

"sudo service network-manager restart".

Bam!

Hope this helps someone else.I got this from AskUbuntu.
