So I just re-installed FC4 clean, compiled the 2.6.12 kernel and everything is fine. Then I realized that I hadn't installed my wireless drivers (Ralink 2500). Then I see rt2x00 drivers over at http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com which are suppose to be less of a hassle to install and stable then the old rt2500 drivers.

I download it, remove a file from the kernel source (version conflict issue), build the ieee80211 modules, then the rt2x00 modules. Everything goes smooth. Then I restart.

Everything seems to be in oder.

When I use the GUI "system-config-network" and in it set the key, it says something in the order of

Code:
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device eth1 ; Operation not supported.
Yeah, so when ever I try to configure it to connect it does nothing. I also installed NetworkManager but that doesn't seem to be recognizing the wireless interface (eth1) at all, just has a option for wired.

Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thank you.
