Hi all! Recently got a ralink rt5370 wifi usb dongle. Well, seems the package in the repos doesn't provide the driver for this model. Thus... need ta sort something out... Heeeeeelp!

I have three cheapo USB WiFi dongles like this. But they all register as RT5370. From what I understand, the RT3070 is closely related to the RT5370, but I am not sure what driver you are supposed to use on it specifically. When in doubt, get the sourced from the manufacturer.

I am encountering trouble using Ralink USB wifi Adapter RT5370 on my IBM Thinkpad X31.
Seems that the drivers are correctly installed, however the network seems to be blocked. On querying lshw -C network, the output shows network Disabled. Have checked for any hardware switch, however there is no change.
I have two USB sticks one with Ralink RT5370 chip and the other with RT3572 chip. I want to make them work in the access point mode. Unfortunately the drivers from the Ralink site do not support the Access Point mode. I read somewhere that the compat wireless modules have the support for access point mode for the Ralink drivers. So I downloaded the latest compat wireless package.
