Try using the rt61 driver from this website.
Using drivers from the Ralink website are not supported on this forum.

Apparently the fedora tool dislikes our driver, try to configure your card with "iwconfig", as explained in the file "iwpriv_usage.txt" coming with the driver (in the "Module" directory). Alternatively, you can download and install RutilT, there's a link in our download section.
