Re: rt3070sta not controllable with networkmanager

Can you clarify what I need to do in my driver's file? The only reference to network manager I saw was the following:

# Support Native WpaSupplicant for Network Maganger [sic]

I have not tried the rt2x00 driver, the wiki main page does not mention my card, but I guess it is similar enough that it should work?

You need to turn on Network Manager support in the file.
Out of curiosity, is rt2x00 not working for you, or is it just not
stable enough?
