I have compiled a few kernels (for debian) in my time but never added a
driver that does not ship. I have a EW-7128G card which seems to use
the Ralink RT61 chipset. Looking at the ndiswrapper site it says:-
Chipset: Ralink RT61
* pciid: 1814:0301 and 1814:0302
* Driver: Don't use driver that ships with card, it didnt work with
ndiswrapper. Use the close source driver from Ralink
http://www.ralinktech.com. It compiles for 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.
* Other: The rt2x00 Open Source Project
(http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com) have now a driver - but realy beta.
* Other: The Ralink driver works great. It is not a plug and play, you
need your kernel headers, the appropiate gcc (3.4) but when you can
link it together and put it where it loads at startup, it works
great. I am using WPA without any problem.
So I guess I should go for the 'Other Ralink' driver here which 'works great' but I dont really know where to start. Any advide woulds be really appreciated.
