Sorry about "not reading the faq"
But I do not understand following information
(You say that Fedora ships with RT2x00 driver)
When I type in Fedora 7 /sbin/modinfo rt2500usb
I get following information
description: Ralink RT2500 USB Wireless LAN driver.
alias: usb:v0EB0p9020d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* [/code2g2s20dp]
Version = 126.96.36.199
This one does not correspond with the info I find on the downloadsite v1.1.0-b2
rt2x00 consists of the following modules
And the latest version is 2.0.12 but is not downloadable as seperate releases only as CVS and Git snapshots.
The legacy drivers are
This is downloadable as seperate releases, but CVS snapshots are more recent and recommended.
It is clear to me that I own rt2500usb v 2.0.8
I will download rt2x00-CVS to have an actual (2.0.12 ?) version.
Actual I see some strange effects I am losing the connection to my channel very often. But it comes back !
In windoz I do not have any problems with the connection (same USB-nic, same HD Is a dual boot system)
So it must me related to the soft (Fedora 7 + driver)
I run the leatest Fedora7 kernel.
So I will try an actual driver version.
Upgrading the FC kernel will work as well, I believe FC provides development kernels. Those contain updated versions of the driver.
Since rt2x00 2.0.12 requires kernel 2.6.24-rc* upgrading to a new FC kernel will be easier.
