I realise you don't support this driver but I'm not sure who to ask for help on this.

The Eee PC 901 comes with a ralink card. The supplied driver worked very badly for me and not at all with WPA, so I downloaded and compiled the official RT2860 driver, see here

As you'll see if you read the link, I can get either WPA working great, or WEP working great, but not both. It all depends on the setting for HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas, or knew who I should ask.

I've also emailed

I received a patch from Ralink tech support - works now -)
