Ralink's rt3090 inferno

Sony Vaio PCG-21313M Wireless installation on ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) applications codenames sux a lot!

This Sony Vaio have a Ralink 3090 as wireless device, ubuntu have this device under modules rt2860, but the default installation adds the versions standard an pci, this computer uses a pcie interface... result: wireless working, but losing packets and hangs on powerdown etc...

The solution is really easy, simply add pci and usb versions out of the box with blacklist

create the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-wireless.conf as root with following contents:

blacklist rt2800pci
blacklist rt2x00usb
blacklist rt2x00pci

And later, edit the file /etc/modules and force the loading of standard version of module:

rt2860sta

Voila :) good feelings come!
