As discussed in numereous topics, which undoubtly you have already read

We have not released any drivers for the rt2800 series yet.
So if you have the drivers, that means that you downloaded them from the Ralink website. And drivers _not_ released by this project are _not_ supported in this project.

I can however add, that as usual Ralink provided documentation with their driver about how to install it. So perhaps you should read the README and INSTALL files....

No schedule has been given yet.
Work has started but due to time limitations progress is slow, I am however trying to make time available to speed up development.

I know the driver downloaded from ralink isn't supported here, and I haven't found a place to send them a note, but if your problem is a Linksys WUSB600N device, their driver won't work "out-of-the-box" you have to add the 17370071 device info to two of the source files in their code base, then it works great... (Better than the Vista Driver)...

Search buttons are off course extremely difficult to use... So here is a sample query for you
search.php?keywords=rt2870&terms=any&author=&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search

As mentioned countless and countless of times already (so it is quite tiresome to repeat this over and over again)
THERE IS NO TIMELINE, THERE IS NO PLANNED RELEASE DATE, IT WILL BE RELEASED WHEN IT IS READY
