Intellinet 150n USB WiFi key

I had some trouble getting my new "Intellinet 150n Wireless LAN Adapter" working in Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)

The problem is that one of the other Realtek drivers (rt2800usb) conflicts with the driver we need (rt2870sta)

To fix it you need to stop the rt2800usb driver from loading by blacklisting it.

sudo vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Add this line;

blacklist rt2800usb

Reboot and you should be up and running.

Excellent advice! I did this blacklist on my Asus Eeepc running Ubuntu and it worked perfectly! Thanks for the help!
