 If you have a Ralink chip in an USB device and that chip is a RT2570 or RT73 (RT73 is also as RT2571 and RT2573), you need the "​rt2570"​ or "​rt73"​ driver. ​ "​rt2500"​ driver is only for PCI/PCMCIA devices. If you have a Ralink chip in an USB device and that chip is a RT2570 or RT73 (RT73 is also as RT2571 and RT2573), you need the "​rt2570"​ or "​rt73"​ driver. ​ "​rt2500"​ driver is only for PCI/PCMCIA devices.

 +Version 3.0.2 of the driver shouldn'​t have this bug anymore.

 +If you want to use an earlier version with 2.6.27, here are the patching instructions:

 +Compiling on 26.31 and above kernels gives an error message "​rt73.ko failed to build!"​. ​ This [[http://​forum.aircrack-ng.org/​index.php?​topic=1824.msg33360#​msg33360|thread]] provides a workaround. ​ Hopefully a corrected version of the driver will be released shortly.
