Ralink rt2860

Hello, I’m having some problems with my wireless network card with OpenSUSE 11.

After installing:


and the Kernel Source packages,I followed this guide RT2860 Wireless Driver with Linux Kernel 2.6.27 .The only thing after the install that was different was the location of the rt2860 driver

instead of /lib/modules/yourkernel/extra/.

And I had to type modprobe rt2860sta instead of rt2860.

After restarting my computer,when I typed in /usr/sbin/iwlist scan into the konsole ,I received this msg.

ra0 Interface doesn’t support scanning : Network is down .

until I start up Network Settings Yast—>Network Devices—>Network Settings.

Results from /sbin/lspci:

00:09.0 Network controller: RaLink Device 0701

Results from /sbin/lspci -n:

00:09.0 0280: 1814:0701

I don’t see my network under the Knetworkmanager
and I can’t seem to connect to it after entering my ESSID/passhrase and whatnot under the yast Network Settings

I am sill new to linux and I’m completely lost on the issue

I would very much appreciate any help anyone could offer me.

   Thank you

Anything guys? I REALLY want to get this thing working/
