    Ralink 5390 / 11.04 / Compaq presario CQ56

    Network manager doesn't give me the "enable wireless" option.

    lspci returns:

    I originally posted this problem here:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...645716&page=10

    I tried following the steps I quoted in comment #91, but when I got to the 'make' stage, i got the following errors:
    Code:
