[rt2x00-users] RT5390, WOL and bitrate

I have some questions about RT5390 under Linux (using Debian GNU/Linux testing+unstable).

$ lspci | grep Ralink
04:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT5390 [802.11 b/g/n 1T1R G-band PCI Express Single Chip]

Is it possible somehow to turn off Wake-on-LAN on RT5390? Tried to use ethtool, but it says that my card doesn't support WOL. I'm using notebook and managing of WOL option in BIOS is blocked by vendor, so I have to find way to manage it in OS.

Another question concerns bitrate. I got this:

# iwconfig 
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"TP-LINK"  
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access Point: F4:EC:38:A5:7A:18   
          Bit Rate=58.5 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=70/70  Signal level=-33 dBm  
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:114  Invalid misc:732   Missed beacon:0

Sometimes bitrate is 57 Mb/s. Well, I cannot change it to bigger values. How to do this?

Also I got this when boot:

# dmesg | grep rt2
[    3.672035] rt2800pci 0000:04:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
[    3.672045] rt2800pci 0000:04:00.0: setting latency timer to 64

[   17.191553] phy0 -> rt2800pci_mcu_status: Error - MCU request failed, no response from hardware

What's wrong with MCU?

Sorry for my English and noobie's questions. Thanks!
