    Okay... I guess it's not in FC6 which means you'll have to compile it. I found this on the error message you are getting...
    Link
    I know this has gotta be a pain... Maybe consider using Ubuntu which has the drivers for Ralink built right in. I have two devices with the Ralink chipset... Ubuntu found them and configured them without incident and both work perfectly. If you were a seasoned user I would not suggest this, but FC is pretty tough for brand new users and you need to be able to get connected.

    You can try looking here at the serialmonkey forums to get your wireless card going. I went there for my rt73 chip problem on a usb wireless adapter and got it going.

    And don't change distros and think you wont have problems because there are just as many or more users of other distros that are having your exact problem and Ubuntu is no exception.

    What problems? Compile errors? Ubuntu has the Ralink drivers included so there is no need to compile. Also, please explain why I fought getting two Ralink cards going under CentOS for weeks after successfully compiling the serialmonkey drivers (rt2500 and rt2570) and had nothing but trouble staying connected, yet both devices, one PCI and one USB work perfectly under Ubuntu current with the included Ralink drivers within 5 minutes after hardware installation with NO problems whatsoever...

    Well then it looks like you need to help this Ubuntu chap out as he seems to have the same wireless card and can't get it going. Ubuntu Help Wireless Signal

    well, i would rather figure out how to fix these problems now than put it off for the future when i go back to fedora if i changed to ubuntu.


    I had someone tell me Fedora 7 has the drivers built in. I think ill try fedora 7 for now.

    You said "there are just as many or more users of other distros that are having your exact problem and Ubuntu is no exception." That can't be the case since Lunarpancake has never had the Ralink drivers compiled correctly in FC6. How can you say Lunarpancake is having the "exact same problem" when he presently has no Ralink drivers present to have the same problem with?

    As far as the link you provided goes, the problem Alexr is having is, as he says... "Ubuntu seems to recognize that my WMP54G card is in but it does not receive a signal," which is different than Lunarpancake's stated problem... "In the network config nothing is listed. Furthermore, if i try to add it i cannot find the correct driver for the RaLink RT2500." Not the "exact same problem."

    The Ralink rt2500 driver is included in BLAG current based on FC7. Is it included in regular FC7? If that is the case, Lunarpancake says he will now try FC7 since the Ralink drivers are included. I think that is a reasonable course of action provided you are running the Ralink drivers in FC7 satisfactorily. If so, your time might better be spent helping Lunarpancake get his averatec 3250hx working properly under FC7 since you seem to be having success with that version and Ralink chipsets.

    Dapper Dan no matter how you cut it they both have problems with the same chip and want it to work.

    Lunarpancake before you decide to go with Fedora 7 I would go to FedoraForum and visit the "Networking" section to see or ask for advice on your problem.

    There is a big difference between "problems" and "exact same problem" as you stated. One can have a multitude of "problems" with any hardware device depending on ones level of expertise. My experience, (which you seem to doubt) is that both pci and usb devices with the Ralink chipset work extremely well under Ubuntu current. A friend of mine is having the same success with a Ralink based USB device on his Ubuntu laptop.

    Lunarpancake stated in the heading that he is a "Newbie." As a new user, getting connected is I think a greater consideration than whatever loyalties you think he should retain toward your chosen distro. The choice is of course his.
