Hi I can't set up Ralink RT5370 wifi adapter. When I run lsusb I get:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp. 

So my raspberry sees the wifi adapter. I can't have problem with power because I use a 2A power adapter. My file /etc/network/interfaces is edidet as:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
auto wlan0

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
   wpa-ssid "Your Network SSID"
   wpa-psk "Your Password"

Can someone help me? Edit: Thank you to all guys, the problem was that I installed another driver, now everything is okey.(sorry)

  • Did you install the driver for it? --> wiki.debian.org/WiFi

  • Can you connect to the Wifi with any other client? Have you eliminated the possibility that the Wifi is bad.

Change "Your Network SSID" the name your router is giving to your WiFi, and enter your password instead of "Your Password".

Actually, I just found out setting up networking has changed in Jessie. See this related question.
