    jayd512 must have made a typo. The correct module is rt2860sta.
    Code:
    modprobe rt2869sta
    I have that driver on my Ubuntu 9.10 install. But it is a proprietary driver and Fedora 12 may not have it.

    It should be this:
    Code:
    modprobe rt2860sta

    I don't know why your card isn't working, but I can guarantee that rt2860sta is the correct driver.

    Your wireless;
    Code:
    02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: RaLink RT2860 [1814:0781]
    The driver details:
    Code:
    $ modinfo rt2860sta
    filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.31-19-generic/kernel/drivers/staging/rt2860/rt2860sta.ko
    version:        1.8.1.1
    license:        GPL
    srcversion:     2DB10B2D13BA8040F82A25A
    alias:          pci:v00001A3Bd00001059sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v00001814d00000781sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v00001814d00000701sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v00001814d00000681sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v00001814d00000601sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    depends:        
    staging:        Y
    vermagic:       2.6.31-19-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 586 
    parm:           mac:rt28xx: wireless mac addr (charp)
    It actually should automatically load the driver upon detection of the wireless card. Post the output of this command:
    Code:
    dmesg

    Did you check the page I suggested?
    You might need to download the proper driver. You can do so from here: Ralink corp.
