Ralink rt3090sta WLAN card issue (F16)

My friend has a HP Probook 4520s. Inside is a combined WLAN+Bluetooth-card by Ralink: rt3090sta. Currently, the laptop is running Fedora 16 x86_64 Gnome.

Has somebody already tried this module? http://koji.russianfedora.ru/koji/buildinfo?buildID=750

At the moment my friend is using the modules, that are used by Fedora 16 out of the box. I think that's rt28**...

From time to time, NetworkManager fails to connect to the WPA-hotspot, even though the router itself is okay. What's happening is: NetworkManager is trying to connect for 10-20 seconds, fails and subsequently asks the user for the WPA-key. After that the whole procedure restarts and can be repeated dozens of times. Sometimes a reboot helps, sometimes not. And in some cases, NetworkManager suddenly successfully connects to the hotspot without problems after having failed ten oder twenty times.

I'm quite sure, the reason for this behaviour is the wlan drivers, since my laptop (ThinkPad T400s) is also running Fedora 16 (64bit) with Gnome and has never encountered such problems when trying to login to that specific hotspot.
