I have a Ralink rt2870 chip. Since it did not work with 11.2 out of the box (should it not be in the kernel?), I had to install this driver from the software search area on opensuse.org:
This package contains binary firmware images for Ralink WLAN cards with rt61/rt73/rt2860/rt2870 chip in combination with the rt2x00-drivers from the serialmonkey-project.
The firmware files will be copied to /lib/firmware.
After installing it, it works, but only at reduced speed, (I think), because when keeping the mouse over the list item (of that connection) in Network Manager, a window pops up saying I only have 54Mbit/s. It says:
Hardware adress: 00:15: …
Bit rate: 54 Mbit/s
Thanks for any help or suggestion!
