Note: Newer versions of SUSE have a NetworkManager applet. We highly recommend you do not use this applet for Ralink cards as it has not been successfully tested yet.
Note: This article refers to the usage of the Ralink drivers called rt2500 and rt61. Do not use them with a SMP kernel nor use them with a kernel having PREEMT enabled, as it has been reported to cause issues. rt2500 seems to be stable with SMP, both rt61 and rt2400 (untested) are subject to stability issues on SMP. The official RT61 drivers from Ralink are reported to work properly with SMP Kernels.
