Bug Description

So i tried to use the wifi USB AVM Fritz Stick N v2 , USB ID 57c:8501 with Saucy and Trusty.
Unfortunately it fails to initialise properly.

According to the label on it , this device is powered by a Ralink RT5572N chipset.

The rt2x00 driver seems to recognize this device:

[ 0.000000] Linux version 3.13.0-19-generic (buildd@akateko) (gcc version 4.8.2 (Ubuntu 4.8.2-17ubuntu1) ) #40-Ubuntu SMP Mon Mar 24 02:36:06 UTC 2014 (Ubuntu 3.13.0-19.40-generic 3.13.6)
[ 20.057058] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00_set_rt: Info - RT chipset 5592, rev 0222 detected
[ 20.103139] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00usb_vendor_request: Error - Vendor Request 0x09 failed for offset 0x0000 with error -32
[ 20.103144] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00lib_probe_dev: Error - Failed to allocate device
[ 20.103158] rt2800usb: probe of 1-1.3:1.0 failed with error -32
[ 20.103199] usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2800usb

As we can see it fails to properly initialize the device.

I am running the most recent Kubuntu 14.04 64bit release that came out this week.

What i exspect to happen is that the device works and i would be able to connect to my wifi network, what happens instead is that only the ethernet card is visible and usable.

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest v3.15 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.
Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.
