    Where did you get the firmware? I can't find it...

    there seems to be a bug in the kernel and It has been fixed in the new mainline, which has not been released yet:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/929244

    In the mean time, I'd really appreciate your help!
    Hi - really sorry about taking more than a month to spot this! I had set it to notify me, but seem to have missed it... Sorry.

    Anyway, the firmware I used is in Debian's debian-nonfree repository, eg http://packages.debian.org/sid/firmware-ralink. Since this is Ubuntu, I've linked to the Unstable version rather than Debian Stable; you can find a choice if you want: http://packages.debian.org/search?ke...irmware-ralink. There's a download link in the 'Download firmware-ralink' section, which should get you to the .deb package. You can install that as usual on your Ubuntu.

    Hope that helps!
