Working interface fails to initialize on startup


I've managed to get my D-link DWL-G510 working using Ralink's linux driver. However, on startup, I get the message:
bringing up ra0: Device ra0 does not seem to be present. Delaying initialization. [FAILED]

Once fully booted, there is no internet access, but running:
/sbin/insmod /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt61.ko

to install the driver gets the connection up and running with no problems. I am using WPA, and also have a eth0 interface configured but inactive. I am running fedora core 5 (PlanetCCRMA distro).

Have I missed a step in the installation, or do I need to add the above line somewhere in the boot process?

Thanks,
Rob

Try adding “alias ra0 rt61” to the end of /etc/modutils/aliases.
