    Disabling generic wifi driver

    Hi,

    I am experiencing some issues with Wi-Fi, where it disconnects every minute, and never reconnects..so I installed a ralink driver on my system, however when i run "lspci -knn" the kernel driver in use always shows as rt2860, and not the installed driver..
    I am wondering if I can disable the 2860 and enable the one i installed.


    I blacklisted the 2860 in modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, but it makes no difference after reboot.


    Driver i installed - DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1
    I disabled ipv6 and power management (some people said that helps.. but it didn't for me)Also created a "blacklist-internal-wifi.conf" file in modprobe.d and listed the rt2860 and rt280 modules as blacklisted, but after reboot the wifi is still going nuts..

    Could anyone please let me know how to activate the RT3562/3592 driver instead of the 2860?


    Thanks
