I have the same card, both the pci + pcmcia models, both are buried at
the bottom of my box of useless stuff, your no doubt having the same
problems i and the other subscribers to this[1] bug are having. the only
way i managed to get this card working was to compile the rt61 driver
from the ralink website[2], however the main problem i have with that
option was everytime i wanted to change to a different wireless network
i had to manually edit the firmware file and reload the kernel module,
although it was stable and useful if you were staying connected to the
same AP it didnt take long to get annoying when i started moving around.
just researching further it seems this code has been incorperated into
the rt2x00 project[3], so my advice at this point would be to follow
that route, try the beta drivers and if no luck with that try the cvs
version. good luck!
