Does anyone know what is up with the firmware and driver files listed on Ralink's site?

http//www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/S ... Linux.html

The files are no longer on the server.

I'll contact Ralink and ask them to update the links

You can find them on the Taiwan site for now

Ugh, they updated their U.S. download site as well, and the file links are now of the form

http//www.ralinktech.com/download.php? ... VmpnPUM%3D

You can see the links here http//www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2

This doesn't jive with OpenWrt at all, because OpenWrt seeks out the filename so it can check mirrors. I imagine other distros may break as well (and a quick check of google suggests that quite a few handy scripts to automatically install the firmware won't work anymore, either). Are these zip files mirrored anywhere I could count on? Is there a contact at Ralink that we could ask to have those links re-instated? Is that something Eddy Tsai can check on?
