Hello. I have compiled rt2x00 (wireless-compat 2011-04-30) for a IpCop machine, and im using a rt2860 card (wireless N).
The ipcop machine uses a autoloader (setup script) that automatically loads the modules based on which networks cards there is in the machine. Its not possible to add debug=1 to this loader.

The driver module (.ko file) is located in /lib/modules/2.6.32-3/updates/drivers/net
/wireless/rt2x00

Trying to unload the module with "depmod -r rt2800pci" (to load again with debug=1) locks up the machine completely, it does not respond to anything, not even numlock/scrollock/capslock.

I have downloaded rt2860.bin and placed it in

/etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/rt2860.bin
/etc/Wireless/RT2860/rt2860.bin
/etc/Wireless/RT2800PCI/rt2860.bin
/lib/firmware/rt2860.bin

But it still complains "File or directory does not exist" when trying to load firmware.
Where does it expect the firmware to be placed?
