Good to know you are working on rt2800pci driver as well !!!
I'm working on rt2800pci & rt2800usb as well (rt2860 and rt2870
chipset). I have a working code in 802.11abg and started 802.11n as
well. I have sent some patches, but the git tree is still missing some
I have rebased them and will send them shortly (I was waiting for the
list to come back online).
rt3090 is like rt2860 except for the RF chip right? I think we could
share some stuff over irc (#rt2x00). I have no problem with the EEPROM
