looks like you have the same wireless device I do, which I am also working on to get up and running. You have to go to http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_supp...ort.php?sn=501 download the rt539x driver, exract it and compile the driver, so will need the software tools to compile with. Found a thread in the ubuntu forums but don't have it in front of me right now that tells how to install the driver, you should be able to find by googling. hope this helps some.
refering you to this thread here
