Hi all,

my system crashed while upgrading edgy to feisty, so I had to install a 
totally new kubuntu feisty. Since several hours I can't get my wlan running 
while it worked well with edgy

wlan-card is MSI with RaLink-Chipset:

webs at jimy:/etc/init.d$ lspci
[...]
02:02.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01)


some outputs:

/etc/network/interfaces looks like this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
address 127.0.0.1
netmask 255.0.0.0


iface eth0 inet dhcp


auto ra0
iface ra0 inet static
address 192.168.1.101
netmask 255.255.0.0
wireless-essid wirelesswebs
gateway 192.168.1.1
wireless-key xxxxxxxxxx


I think the driver has been loaded:

webs at jimy:/etc/network$ lsmod | grep -i rt2500
rt2500                176868  1

network-manager und kwifimanager are not installed und routing und DNS are 
absolutely ok.

Does anyone know what's happening here?
