I have recently installed Slackware 12.2 (with 18.104.22.168 kernel). I was successfully using rt73-cvs legacy driver with Slack 12.1 (2.6.24) and the driver worked flawlessly. However, now I got again your rt73 (cvs) legacy driver, compiled, installed, but cannot connect to my WPA2 wireless network I can set essid, list networks avaible, except setting encryption parameters (and therefore connecting).
However, I have found a patched compatible version of your driver at http//homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_lar ... .2.tar.bz2
It works again for me.
Please consider including the corresponding patches in your official release, and thank you.
(Note I tried to use the stock kernel modules but they seem to not work yet with my dongle - D-LINK DWL-G122 Rev. C)
