I have an HP Mini 110-3004 with a RaLink RT3090 wireless card. lspci gives the following information on the card
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:3090]
Subsystem: RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:3090]
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
Latency: 0, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 10
Region 0: Memory at 52000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: <access denied>

Up until now I've been using the rt2860sta driver from the kernel staging tree, which had the unfortunate tendency to trigger intermittent kernel panics when disconnecting. I searched around a bit and found a number of threads that seemed to suggest that the rt2x00 driver had support for the card. However, I also found an old thread[/urlf2gtidsi] on this forum which seems to state that support for RT3090 cards might not yet be in the driver.

None of the rt2x00 modules are loaded automatically on boot, and even after adding the rt2800pci module with modprobe, iwconfig only gives me the lo and eth0 (wired connection) devices.

Does rt2x00 support RT3090 cards? If so, what should I do to get things working? I'm running Fedora 14 with kernel and (according to modinfo) version 2.3.0 of the rt2x00 driver.

Thanks in advance for any help. )

This seems to be working fine in a newer kernel (2.6.38 from the Fedora 15 Alpha). )
