I recently bought a linksys WMP600N PCI card (rt2860 chip) as my pre purchase googling told me it would work out of the box. You all know how the rest on this story goes.... a week later I`m here looking for help.
I think I have thrown everything in the book on this, compiling new drivers, blacklisting modules and having a /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT860STA.dat
My problem is that the card connects fine now on a Lucid x32 installation but only connects with my DIR-655 router WPA2-TKIP only at 24Mb/s
some info with comments
rt2860 ? should it not be rt2860sta ?
