I'm using the rt61 kernel module which came with my Ubuntu 7.10 distro. Every now and then the connection drops and the following message starts showing up in my /var/log/messages logfile
Jan 1 214521 florida kernel [ 6954.552000] Please file bug report to http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com
Rebooting the system restores the connection but then after a while (sometimes within 1 minute!) the same happens again. It seems to happen more often lately. Output from modinfo rt61pci
description Ralink RT61 PCI & PCMCIA Wireless LAN driver.
vermagic 2.6.22-14-generic SMP mod_unload 586
Is this a known problem? Do I need to supply more information?
All help is very much appreciated.
Happy New Year,

You are using a very old rt2x00 version, please upgrade to the latest git version.
Thank you for your reply. Funny to see a fellow Haarlemer running this project
Can I install the rt2x00 driver or do I need the legacy rt61 driver?
You could do either, if you want to use rt2x00 you need to upgrade your kernel to 2.6.24-rc or use latest git which is an entire kernel.
rt61 legacy is easier and at the moment more likely to work correctly.
