You might want to check
As far as I understand the Ralink released drivers are just windows
drivers ported to linux. The rt2x00 project have working rt2400, rt2500
and rt2560 frivers (from the top of my head, the last one is 2500usb).
Anyway, they are working on a unified rt2x00 driver (from scratch,
almost usable atm) and that one will be eventually merged into the
kernel, or that is the plan at least.
