I have a Ralink-based PCI WLAN card which I would like to use with OpenSuSE 12.2;
hwinfo --netcard gives

problem is reported when rt2800lib tries to init the card
[code2hf5ckcm][ 11.391750] phy0 -> rt2800_init_eeprom: Error - Invalid RT chipset 0x2840 detected.
[ 11.391764] phy0 -> rt2x00lib_probe_dev: Error - Failed to allocate device.[/code2hf5ckcm]
I really wonder about this since this WLAN card is nothing new but already 2+ years old ...;
firmware seems to be latest what I found (firmware-nonfree_0.36.tar.gz; rt2860.bin dated 2011-07-26);
is there a way to get this chipset supported?
I do understand in this post.This post looks like great.I don't know how to describe its goodness and importance!!!!
Thanks so much.Really really appreciated.
