[Bug 594866] Re: [Maverick][2.6.35] RT2860 (ralink) broken with rt2800pci

Just tried to improve the bug report a bit by adding the workaround
(thanks to Bruno Lambert) in the description. I made a hopefully user
friendly howto (as a launchpad question). It might be a good idea if
someone checked it for errors.

** Description changed:

+ [Explanation and Workaround]
+ With ubuntu 10.10 some hardware that was previously driven by the rt2860sta driver is now driven by default by the rt2800pci driver. Sometimes the new rt2800pci does not work as well as the rt2860sta. In that case it is often possible to switch back by blacklisting. See how to switch between the drivers here: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/132350

+ [Original Report]
  Hello,
  
  With the new kernel release available on Ubuntu Maverick (2.6.35-x) I'm
  not able to be connected to a secured wireless network. I already had
  this kind of bug on Lucid (bug #496093) but the connexion worked after
  two or three time and I had the problem only with one router.
  
  Don't hesitate to tell me something to do if it's needed ;)
  
  Thank you!
