Hello, I am trying to get rt61pci work for my pcmcia card. I have compiled the linux-2.6.24.2 vanilla kernel from kernel.org and chosen the ralink drivers in it. The card is detected, and I can even scan networks.

However, when I try to connect to an AP using NetworkManager (WPA), it fails. I have herewith attached the relevant logs from the syslog.

I would also like to give rt2x00 2.1.4 a shot. However, I am not able to get a snapshot of it from the git webinterface. Does someone have a tarball of it somewhere or is git-clone the only way?

Thank you )

I tried enabling the rt2x00 debug in the kernel, and got the following in the kern.log..

I updated the kernel to 2.6.25-rc7 and the card simply works OOB )

Thanks guys )
