Open Source Linux Ralink drivers and the 'N' Band.


It would appear that the open source Linux Ralink drivers do not support the N band, is that correct?

I was using Xp this morning and just happened to notice b/g/n were supported by the driver, but when I booted back to Slackware64 only b and g were listed. Ditto in PC-BSD.

Support for 802.11-N should be there.

rt2800pci and rt2800usb have full support of Wireless N. Other chipsets might not have support yet though.

Just had the time to take another look at this and the KDE widget for networkmanager is showing the rt2800pci driver is being used, but still no N support.
