    Well you're using exactly the same wireless card as me.
    rt2800pci is loading which is what 11.10 is using to connect.
    Don't you see any networks at all when you click your Network icon?

    I took a suggestion and blacklisted acer_wmi and it helped nothing. Also, "Enable Wireless" is grayed out. Also, "Enable Wireless" is grayed out.

    Looking at your lsmod & lspci, you shouldn't need to blacklist anything.
    It may be though that now you have tried installing the rt3090sta driver from Ralink, you're wireless is screwed.
    This guide only really works well on 10.04 with the 2.6.32 kernel.
    Like I said this card should have worked out of the box in both 11.04 & 11.10.
    If you boot into the live CD, and click the wireless icon, do you see any networks at all?

    Yes, I'm using 11.10. It didn't work on 10.04, or 11.04, or 11.10.
    I don't know what to do. D:
    Please let us see:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist scan
    md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    dmesg | grep rt2
    Thanks.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 using the Ralink RT2860 WiFi chipset (e.g. EeeBox B202)

    Oh, sorry. I copy/pasted all the commands at once and thought that would work.

    md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    james@james-Lenovo-B575:~$ md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    75a1da3caa0b1c95e81dfba207f834c6 /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    and

    dmesg | grep rt2
    james@james-Lenovo-B575:~$ dmesg | grep rt2

    OMG. I'm an idiot. The fix was simple. Ubuntu was set to load before the wireless card. Thank you SO much for your time, and I'm sorry you wasted it.

    Glad it's working and I was happy to help.
