I need help here. I just install ubuntu desktop 11.10 and can't get my wireless card work. it is based on RALink chipset.
I've found a link pointing to a driver: http://suporte.dlink.com.br/suporte/index.php. but it seems that this driver doesn't include data for a kernel 3.x compilation, only 2.4 and 2.6 :(
can somebody help me?
After have removed and reinstalled the card into the machine, Ubuntu starts to recognize the card as a RALink at least. But RT61pci default driver didn't work. The network get the status of UNCLAIMED:
*-network UNCLAIMED description: Network controller product: RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g vendor: Ralink corp. physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:03:02.0 version: 00 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm cap_list configuration: latency=32 resources: memory:d0500000-d0507fff
So after have tried dozen of times to build the linux driver from DLink support site, I gave up and have tried with Ndiswrapper.
I discover that I need to use a 64bit driver and the only one that worked was the XP64 that I found here.
Now its getting better because I can see more things with iwconfig:

but I still can't connect to AP :(
