It seems I'm not the only one, another user has the same problem with a
I already tried using Ubuntu 11.10-daily with Linux 3.0rc3 and the newest
firmware etc., all looks fine but the speed is capped at 25% at best. And
now that rt2860sta has been dropped form the kernel (with Linux 3.0), I
really need a solution for Ubuntu 11.10...
