You'd get an ra0 interface if you followed the steps in my prior post.
# ifconfig ra0 up
ra0: unknown interface: No such device

Are you running a custom kernel?

If the kernel driver's not working for you, you can try this one:

rt2500 how-to Fedora on LQ.org

rt25xx how-to on FedoraForums.org

Yes you posted rt2500, but how many times have you seen people post the wrong info ? I was just looking for verification of the actual hardware


man once you get it working you should write an UP-TO-DATE HOW-TO for Fedora.. everything I'm finding out there is old....

Nope, it's the stock Fedora 8 kernel.

# uname -r
2.6.23.9-85.fc8

I don't know, but it can't hurt to try the serialmonkey drivers. At the very least, you'll get a newer version of what you already have.

I've seen recent posts that said to blacklist the rt2500pci module and use the rt2500 module instead, because people are having problems getting the rt2500pci to work, while the rt2500 module works perfectly well..

that could be your issue..
