Ralink chipset works in Ubuntu Jaunty, not Karmic beta


I have a USB wireless adapter, the Rosewill RNX-EasyN1 (networkmanager lists it as a "Ralink 802.11 n WLAN") that worked fine in Jaunty but not Karmic. The driver (rt2870sta or rt3070sta or something like that) is still around, but plugging it in doesn't let me connect. It shows the device in networkmanager but I don't think it gets its own file in /dev. Running dmesg shows the following output after I plug it in:
Code:
[ 8565.704037] usb 1-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
[ 8566.032028] usb 4-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
[ 8566.177307] usb 4-2: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub

[ 8566.396539] rtusb init --->

[ 8567.687576] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan1: link is not ready
So, what is going wrong, or where should I file a bug on launchpad?

You can post bugs here if you have a launchpad account.

Added this to my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and now it works I didn't really know what I was doing though...
Code:
blacklist rt2800usb
blacklist rt2870sta
