I was able to compile the driver
RT2860PCI/mPCI/CB/PCIe(RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890) from source found at
and followed the instructions found in
I had to edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf using
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
and add rt2800pci on an empty line. I also found out the file
intel-5300-iwlagn-disable11n.conf and edited it using
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/intel-5300-iwlagn-disable11n.conf
and changed the original entry below
options iwlagn 11n_disable=1
options iwlagn 11n_disable=0
I restarted the computer and it I am now able to get 802.11n speed on my
I did another test with the wireless turned off and restarted the system but
when I turn on the wireless after the desktop has loaded the network manager
applet does not see detect that the wifi is enabled on the laptop.
It seems that there is a bug. If I am missing something, please let me know.
