I've also marked bug 216084 as a duplicate of this report as it's also
requesting for the rt2860 drivers to be included. I'll try to bring
this to the attention of the kernel team to consider. I'm also going to
modify the title and bug description a bit to better reflect this
request. Hope that is ok with you. Thanks.
** Summary changed:
- RaLink RT2790 not working
+ Please include RaLink RT2860 driver
** Description changed:
+ "I managed to get the drivers from
+ http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html for the RT2860
+ to work for this card under Kubuntu Hardy 64bit. Since lodging this bug
+ report they have updated the drivers to work with the current kernel. Is
+ it possible to incorporate this driver into Ubuntu's modules, if not for
+ Hardy then at least for Intrepid?"
The RaLink RT2790 card doesn't work. The rt2x00 serialmonkey drivers
don't cover this card. There are (apparently) drivers for Linux on
RaLink's website that cover this card, but they don't compile on the
2.6.24 kernel. Ndiswrapper seems to accept the Windows drivers for it
and detects its presence, but the card still fails to work as a network
interface (at least in the 64bit version, haven't tested ndiswrapper yet
This card has failed for me in Kubuntu Gutsy 64bit, Hardy Beta 64bit,
and Hardy Beta 32bit.
Please include RaLink RT2860 driver
