DLink DWL-G510/Ralink RT61 and Fedora 7

Hi Jonathan,

I've just tested miniPCI cards with the RT2561/RT61 chipset and they
don't work reliably with the driver included in F7.


I've used the rt2x00 CVS drivers directly from from the project:

They work very reliably, good connection and an excellent long distance
reception, but the performance is with 2.25MB/s average.

I'd recommend an atheros chipset based card as the performance is
better. If you want to have the card supported in the future by the
Fedora project go for the ralink-based card.
