Open up a shell and type:

tar xvfz rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz
cd rt61-cvs-*
cd Module

Then, as root, type:

make install
rmmod rt61pci 2>/dev/null
modprobe rt61

You also need the following each time you want to use the device in monitor mode:

 iwpriv <interface name> rfmontx 1

For the above command, first make sure the interface is down. You can bring the interface down with “ifconfig <interface name> down”.

NOTE: This will download the Enhanced Legacy version of the driver. Recent kernels include the Next-Generation version of this driver (called rt61pci). The rt61pci driver is untested, but probably needs no patch besides the usual mac80211 patches.
