You might want to contact Ralink about this. According to this page, there is Linux support for that chipset. However, on their support page, I don't see a download under Linux for RT2560. This page has your card listed under RT2500, but of course, manufacturers may change the chipsets used in their cards. Are you absolutely certain that your card has an RT2560 chipset?

UPDATE: I had a good look at my network card, and it sais this:


So it's based on the RAlink RT2561 chipset.
This is what the product's site sais:
Comprehensive Operating System Support: Windows98/SE/ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP,
Windows CE, Linux, Mac OSX

Thoug it doesn't work on Mandrakelinux 10.1 Community edition.

I DO want to contact RAlink, i just don't know how. They have like 5 different E-Mail adresses. I can't call because i'm from the Netherlands.

Please help?????
