I've got issues getting ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter to run ob an Ubuntu 12.04 box. I've downloaded latest sources from http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/dl.php and compiled them with activated support for:

HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y

make and make install worked without any issues.

Also I added to blacklisted list:

blacklist rt2800usb
blacklist rt2870sta

When inserting the device I'm getting

[ 1625.120102] usb 1-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 7 using ehci_hcd
[ 1625.232103]

[ 1625.232776] NVM is EFUSE
[ 1625.249500] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): ra0: link is not ready

Syslog is extending this a bit:

What else am I missing? Is there maybe any deb for Ubuntu anywhere available?
