Welll, gave it a good try and I'm sorry to say it
didn't work with the rt2400. I cleared out
/etc/modules of the rt modules I added and all the
blacklisted modules I added until the system was back
to original state when it was wired.  Pulled the card
and rebooted to clear out any related moduled in the
kernel.  Added it back and rebooted again.  lspci
listed the card. lsmod listed rt2400pci and all
related dependencies but dmesg, debug, kern and daemon
logs had no mention of anything wireless and iwconfig
had no wireless extensions.Adding all the detail
because I don't know what I'm doing and someone may
see something wrong. The  irg wasn't even assigned as
on my other trials and I'm wondering if I should
remove the NIC in case it could be interfering with
the wifi.
Thaanks your efforts are appreciated,
