You need at least the rt2570 v1.1.0-b2 or the CVS version.
But you should better use a specially patched one from

ifconfig rausb0 down
rmmod rt2570
tar -xvjf rt2570-k2wrlz-1.5.1.tar.bz2
cd rt2570-k2wrlz-1.5.1/Module
make && make install
modprobe rt2570

Make sure to load the driver with modprobe (not insmod).

Troubleshooting Tips

There are reports of the aircrack-ng tools freezing and/or stop working.

Here are a few things to try:

  • Try lowering injection rate
  • Disable USB Legacy support in BIOS
  • Use the newest kernel you can get
  • Do NOT use the SMP version of this kernel (You will get a warning about this when compiling the driver)
  • Use the newest 1.5.1 driver
  • If the hardware totally loses its function: Use the oven method to get it back to life:
