After executing...

sudo modprobe rt3572sta

I get...

Invalid module format

What does it mean? I'm trying to get Wusb600n v2 working on Lucid Lynx.

Does it mean that kernel versions aren't compatible?

  • What do uname -a and file /path/to/rt3572sta.ko show? Where did you get the rt3572sta module from? – Gilles Jul 17 '11 at 16:48
  • You can take a look here to understand it better. The link explains why this error occurs and how to fix it. – Shantanu Ade Oct 15 '16 at 0:36

It means that the file you are trying to load is not a valid kernel module. Either it never was, or it has been corrupted, or possibly it is for an architecture other than the one you have ( 32 vs 64 bit ).
