This device is not supported until now by rt2x00 as I can't find the usb
id in the sources.

You may add it yourself and test it. Or if it doesn't work properly you
may take the driver from

http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_support/support.php?sn=501

Most probably the rt5572 usb driver. Anyway, you have to add the ID
here, too.


Kind regards,
Andreas
