Mandriva LE 2005 (kernel-2.6.11), ndiswrapper-1.2rc1. Must install Kernel-Source 2.6-2.6.11-6mdk to compile ndiswrapper, use
ndiswrapper -d 0b05:1706 rt2500usb
to get Hardware present, works at 54 Mb Great !! No need to recompile kernel, it just works fine.
Tested with Ndiswrapper 0.11, kernel 2.4.27, Knoppix. All thanks to ndiswrapper! B-) (RS) Works with vanilla 2.6.9 ONLY WITH EHCI DISABLED + ndiswrapper 0.11 and D-Link 1.00.00.0000 drivers. Works OK with 2.6.10 and Ndiswrapper 1.0rc1Works OK with 2.6.11 and Ndiswrapper 1.1 (EHCI Disabled/Kenrel 4K Stack Disabled/May have to modify the rt2500usb.inf for proper
usbid if No ""hardware present"" found after ndiswrapper -i)
Works ok with 2.6.10, ndiswrapper 1.1 (EHCI loaded with modprobe ehci-hcd log2_irq_thresh=4 to avoid "usb 1-2: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2"
Works fine with Ndiswrapper 0.11, kernel 2.4.27, WinXP driver(should comment out other manufactures in inf file; make sure /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb has file named in correct usbid(0b05:1706))
The official drivers from ralink come in a Windows executable that I couldn't unpack with unzip/unshield/cabextract. Fortunately, the drivers from Asus come in a zip file (and are 10% of the download size.)
