    hmm, weird. Sorry if I can't be of help here, but then I'd suggest you to open a new thread in the 'Networking & Wireless' section of the forum.

    Greetings.

    Yeah - it does sound like the driver... I'd like to get my hands on the latest version from ralink...

    The files should be the same right? ie... inf, sys and cat - no matter the specific vendor? So if anyone could post the latest versions of the driver files somewhere I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Sorry for double post - managed to get the latest drivers from Ralink via email. If anyone else needs them feel free to PM me.

    I'll test em out tonight. Here's hoping.

    Now when you scan for other networks, what is the output?
    sudo iwlist scan
    And what does this one one?
    sudo ndiswrapper -l
    What sort of card have you got & what chipset?

    @Logarithymic:

    Have you really blacklisted "rt2500usb"?

    Second you need to edit your interfaces file. Do this:
    sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    Now replace the contents with this (don't worry, it's safe):
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    That should do. Now restart the computer and scan once again:
    sudo iwlist scan
    Any results?
