This is the procedure I used to install the driver for my new Rosewill Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI 2.2 Wireless Adapter. It uses the Ralink 3060 chip. I'm using Lucid 10.04 and WICD as my network manager.(I have tested this driver and method on both 10.10 & currently 11.04 with success) I downloaded the drivers from Ralinks site
Make sure you have installed gcc build-essential
I then followed the instuctions in the README file.
sudo apt-get install gcc build-essential
Navigate to downloaded_driver_folder/os/linux and open config.mk in a text editor.
Find and set so that it indicates ( y ) at the end of this text string
and also set
Next, open a terminal in the driver folder and type then
Now you'll need to load the driver
sudo modprobe rt3562sta
sudo ifconfig ra0 inet up
After I successfully connected I added the driver to /etc/modules so it it would load at startup. This is a copy of mine
Edit complete save file and reboot to test. I hope this helps anyone using Raklink 3060/3062/3562 chipset. Mine connects with a strong consistent signal.
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
Looks as if an addition is necessary to complete the driver install. The need to blacklist a default driver to enable the new driver.
Add this to the end of that file
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
