Digisol DG-WN1150N (ralink 3060 chip) PCI wireless card on Ubuntu

Hello all,

Got Digisol DG-WN 1150N PCI wireless card. It does not work out of the box on Ubuntu 10.10 and it has ralink 3060 chip supposedly.

This is from lspci
03:01.0 Network controller: RaLink Device 3060
This is what iwconfig says
wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any  
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:of
And this is what iwlist wlan0 scanning says
wlan0     No scan results
I think the card was detected but there is some issue with it. I can see that the modules rt2800 are loaded. Searched google and found some links followed them, followed the readme file and compiled and installed the driver properly. this is from where I got the driver though. link says it is not supported out of the box but works when installed with the proper drivers.
But for me for some reason, it just does not want to work.

Any help to make it work and connect to wireless network?

Never mind. Got it working myself. This is what needs to be done to get it working after the driver has been installed.

Edit /etc/modules in Ubuntu and add this line:
And /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add
blacklist rt2800pci
Marking it as solved
