    Enable the rpmfusion repository.
    Code:
    su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
    Install the driver
    Code:
    su -c 'yum install rt2860'
    And it should be available on reboot. My Fedora knowledge is a bit weak and it's not entirely clear to me if that is the correct package name. It might instead be kmod-rt2860.

    Hello there.
    After your reboot, could you post the output of both of these?
    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    lsmod

    Does
    Code:
    su -
    modprobe rt2860
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    return any errors? And if not, is your wireless working?

    Turns out I have the same card.
    Try
    Code:
    modprobe ra2860sta
    If you get an error, post back, or visit this page.
