Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-source

Depending on the version I use kubuntu kernel, I do not have the same detection capability.
The sensitivity would be concerned mainly via the register BBP which would not be managed the same way, I'm hardy kernel with a gusty, I also tested regularly intrepid, depending on the version of the kernel, I do not have the same sensitivity, all that would link to register BBP, so most of the time it did not detect my wireless connections

If you like, you could resolve the problem of sensitivity?

http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=3434 example of a
subject in the report, most of the problems of detection should come
from this register.

Sincerely yours

Hardware : Network controller: RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI
(rev 01)

 Link Signal level=-77 dBm (with gutsy kernel, and iwconfig )

 Signal level=-81 dBm (with gutsy kernel and iwlist wlan0 scan)
