I've successfully compiled the utility as well as the RT2780 driver from ralink's linux support page [url2uutpkuh]http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html[/url2uutpkuh]
everything is seemingly running fine, i am able to bring up the ra0 interface and connect to my AP i want. The problem is that I am unable to send any packets. My router is showing the internal IP and Rutil is displaying a decent connection. These are the errors i get in command line though...

We don't give support for drivers that are not developed within this project. When you download drivers from a different source (in this case the Ralink website) you should ask for support there.

yeah i guess the RT870 is too new for you guys to give support, unfortunately i can't seem to find adequate linux support anywhere.
hopefully in the future.

Have you setup your route?
[code3u24c157]route add default gw #your gateway IP# dev wlan0[/code3u24c157]
Also check /etc/resolv.conf, it should contain
[code3u24c157]nameserver #IPaddress of your DNS server#[/code3u24c157]
In my case, the DNS server is in my modem (192.168.1.1)
