Actually the RT2860STA is supported with 10.04 out of the box, but the issue for most people is how it sets up the driver/module. It conflicts by wanting the 2860 driver, but also setting up the 2800 or 2x00. Just needs some blacklisting/tweaking to get it going. Not difficult. Post back if you need help with it.amina wrote:I only have experience with my own laptop which has a Ralink card, and needs the rt2860sta driver.
I used to encounter the same problem on ubuntu 10.04 and also on LMDE, because it still uses the 2.6.32 kernel that does not support this card out-of-the-box.
Wifi works perfectly on ubuntu 10.10, (therefore probably also mint10), opensuse 11.3 ... etc; all distros using a newer kernel version.
For me, the solution was to compile the driver (or could have installed the liquerix kernel).
I think it would be useful if you'd post information about the wireless card so that maybe someone having the same could advise (if you'd happen to have the same as mine, I can probably help you).
Maybe you should try ubuntu 10.04 live CD or any other distro with the 2.6.32 kernel and check if you have the same problem, or try to install the liquerix kernel.
