Hi, guys
I have an eeepc 1001HA
the wifi interface is a Ralink rt3090 and I installed firmware-ralink
with the 2.6.35-7.slh.1 kernel I get strange behaviors:
1- the system completely freezes at shutdown and the CLI hangs at these two lines
      Code:
phy0 -> rt2800_wait_wpdma_ready: Error - WPDMA TX/RX busy, aborting
phy0 -> rt2x00pci_regbusy_read: Error - Indirect register access failed: offset=0x00007010 value=0xffffffff

2- if i try to stop the wifi by > ifdown wlan0, the system freezes

3- if I try to disable the wifi by > Fn+F2, the system freezes

(apart these issues wifi connects and works flawless during uptime with the 2.6.35-7.slh.1 kernel)
I don't have these issues running 2.6.33-1.slh.5 kernel

do you know a solution? thank in advance

PS some info about the system
      Code:
infobash -v3

The firmware provided by Debian's firmware-ralink might be too old for rt3090 please download "Firmware RT28XX/RT30XX USB series (RT2870/RT2770/RT3572/RT3070)" from http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/support.php?s=2 and save the unzipped firmware image as /lib/firmware/rt2870.bin (yes, it's really called rt2870.bin).

looks like someone has similar issue
http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB/vi ... 090#p34519
and someone else wrote a patch as a workaround
https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/branche ... ?rev=23107

slh, would you insert that patch into your kernel?

The new kernel did not solve the problem, the system freeze at shutdown persists
it seems I am condemned to stay with the old 2.6.33 kernel
