Hi imx53 experts,

 

I would like to get USB Wifi dongle (Ralink RT3070) to work on imx53 quickstart board running on Ubuntu. On desktop PC running Ubuntu, the USB Wifi dongle just works after plugging in. I am surprised that the Ubuntu on the imx53 quickstart board did not work.

Am I right that all I have to do is to re-compile the kernel with the right options? May I know what are the right options to look out for?

 

Thank you.
