Hello, for the first time )
I have a tiny usb wifi device called
Guillemot Thrustmaster FunAccess Wifi powered by hercules
the sticker also tells FCC ID NAM5075243
chips inside are
small rt2520l
big rt2571wf
I want it to run on my linux box, but it doesn't work with rt2x00 driver and other, called "legacy" (rt2570,...etc.)

[code2ynnt5x3]uname -r[/code2ynnt5x3]

[code2ynnt5x3]lsusb |grep Guillemot
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 06f8:e002 Guillemot Corp. [/code2ynnt5x3]

[code2ynnt5x3]modinfo rt2570 |grep 06F8
alias: usb:v06F8pE000d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*[/code2ynnt5x3]

i think this is same device as hercules HGWUSB2-54 (it looks identical), but i don't know what to do to force this device to work )

when i plug in dmesg
[code2ynnt5x3][ 4660.404111] usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
[ 4660.675460] usb 1-3: New USB device found, idVendor=06f8, idProduct=e002

when i modprobe rt2570

[ 4660.675661] usb 1-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice[/code2ynnt5x3]

when i disconnect
[code2ynnt5x3][ 4722.691758] rt2570: init[/code2ynnt5x3]

Can you help me with this device?

regards from Poland.

As described here [ANNOUNCEMENT] Project reorganization[/urlrls40xlk] we don't support the legacy driver.

Just use rt73usb instead of rt2500usb and you should be fine.

Hello again,
thanks, IvD, but as i wrote before, my usbcard has identificator who wasn't included in rt73usb driver. So it doesn't work with my usb card.

However after a few hours (i'm not a kernel-module-hacker ;)) i managed to discover a place in the rt73usb.c where was identificators stored. I've added a line

[code2vr5opxh]{ USB_DEVICE(0x06f8, 0xe002), USB_DEVICE_DATA(&rt73usb_ops) },[/code2vr5opxh]

and compiled the driver. It works well in debian with firmware-ralink package installed.
I suggest to add this identificator to the official driver, cause it works with this hardware.
This is modified rt73usb.c from version 2.3.0 of driver.

Some details

Device name (from webpage) WiFi USB Key for PSP™ / PSP™ Slim & Lite
Device name (from writings on the housing) Thrustmaster FunAccess WIFI USB KEY Powered by Hercules
Device id 06f8e002
Link to manufacturer's description of hardware http// ... atformID=4

Wider informations about my modification is available on my blog[/url2vr5opxh] (only in polish)

Waiting for reply )
