I own an RT3070 based usb adapter. I took actual 2.6.31_rc3 driver because i saw that you made much changes in rc1. I load the firmware from here
http//www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/drive ... .1.1.0.bz2
.In that driver package i found the rt2870.bin firmware.
md5sum 188aa98bb749e1f0d9028c44284898f0 rt2870.bin
I made the drirectory "firmware" in /lib (symlink to lib64) and place it there. Everything seems to work

But i cant find any wireless interfaces with "iwlist wlan1 scan". The interface is up. The hardware is okay. Tested with windows and everything is fine there. Also an "iw dev wlan1 scan" doesnt show any results. I have installed iw 0.9.15 .
Scanning and so on works without problems with the ath9k based card i have put into my laptop.
Hope my reported data is enough. I can do tests and so on when you tell me how i could help. I am not realy good in programming but can try changes in (kernel)source when you tell me what & where.
I can also give a development platform - distribution you like + ssh root access to a notebook with the card inside.
