How to determine chipset version?


Hi,
Just purchased a D-link WUA-1340 USB wireless adaptor. After finding some commands and using them, I'm able to determine its a Ralink chipset.
The problem I'm having is I cant determine the version that I'm using.
I've visited rt2x00.serialmonkey.com to look for drivers.
I guessed it was rt2570 since its a USB adaptor. I compiled it, installed it (via make and make install).

I performed modprobe rt2570 and plugged my device in.
I check dmesg and get this:
Code:
rt2570: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
usbcore: registered new driver rtusb
usb 3-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 10

You guessed it, i'm running Suse 10. I checked "iwconfig" and device doesnt appear. It's listed in /etc/modules.conf as an alias. I have a cfg-rausb0 in /etc/sysconfig/network.

Any suggestions to help me get the right driver?

Thanks!

Found out from Windows its an rt73 card so it needs that driver.

Ralink has the driver and the betta of rt2x00 has a similar driver but neither work. I get an error:

usb 3-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 50
rt73usb->rt2x00_vendor_request: Error - vendor request error. Request 0x0a failed for offset 0x0000 with error -71.
rt73usb->rt2x00_vendor_request: Error - vendor request error. Request 0x09 failed for offset 0x0020 with error -71.
rt73usb->rt73usb_probe: Error - Failed to initialize device.
