Realtek 802.11n chip?

BTW, is a Ralink chip

Something like that. Its something like the rt2860 driver. I think it
has crappy stuff like stuff in /etc
That's the one.
Supposedly the driver is under a rewrite to be included in the upstream
kernel, but I am not aware about the current status.

Its been in a rewrite state for ages with what seems like no real
progress. I read somewhere the USB variant would be done first but
that hasn't seemed to materialise yet.

More than half year ago it was supposed to be ready for kernel 2.6.29[1], but since then I took the "easy way" with the akmod from rpmfusion and didn't follow the development.
