    Good day everyone.
    I'm not that advanced in configuring networks, especially not wireless
    networks.

    Some months ago, I switched from Ubuntu 10.10 to Debian 6 because I
    noticed before how well Knoppix 6.7 works on the computer.
    Ubuntu should get replaced soon by another distribution anyway, so
    Debian was the choice.

    There's just one problem, right now.
    I own a wireless LAN usb adapter from hama (German manufactor) that
    contains a Ralink 2870/3070 chipset, according to lsusb.

    Actually, it worked fine under Ubuntu so far.
    Well, I knew that Debian will not work with "some" hardware out of the
    box, so I decided to google for a simple and fast solution, what
    resulted in the following page:
    http://vivahate.com/2011/04/04/ralink-rt2870rt3070-in-debian-6-squeeze/

    I did everything as explained there, but it didn't worked.
    No wait, that's just half the truth.
    Searching networks is no problem, but neither can I connect to one nor
    create one.

    Gnome's networkmanager says, unknown speed, what shouldn't be, I guess.

    Could anyone help me getting this thing working again?

    The system itself is connected by a wired connection, however, since our
    router doesn't like my netbook (for whatever reason), I'd love to get
    everything working again, so I don't need to take the cable everytime
    I'm using the netbook.

    To use rt2870sta and blacklist rt2800usb,
    run the following commands in terminal as root:

    root@xxxx:~# gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    add these lines to the end of the file:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2800usb
