it's possible that your driver is giving up more than one device, one as a wired one and the other as a wireless one? Type iwconfig to verify...

Well, I have the same card as you and in some part of the configuration process I learnt that RT61 = Ralink 2561. It's the same card and it can work with the same driver as RT 2500 (at least on my computer).

So, your problem is that network-manager says wlan0 is a wired network? Try installing SerialMonkey drivers, or just those that come from repositories (I think they only differ on the version).
