In hardy i had speed trouble 1/4 of my download speed was availible with rt2500pci driver.
I now use ndiswrapper (had troubles but latest version works) but i will revert to rt2500 to report information about rt2500 in Hardy

I would, too, like to have this bug fixed. With an Intel ipw3945 wireless card I get full speed, but with a rt2500 chipset (rt2x00) only 1mb/s. But the rt2500 (with the rt2500 driver) card is in Gutsy faster than my ipw3945 card,

Could it be a duplicate of https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22/+bug/134660/ ?
Or at least have something with it in common

Exact;y the same hit me too with Hardy Alpha 3 (i386-desktop).
I have only 30kB-60kB rate while downloading the updates
(236MB takes a long time, mind you) - but in Feisty/Gutsy
the same PCI card using rt2500pci module gives me a full
speed of 240kB-250kB download rate.

My mainboard is ASUS A8V Deluxe, and the hardware:

# lspci -v
00:0e.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01)
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. WL-130g
        Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 21
        Memory at fbb00000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

PS. I'm writing this comment while the updates are downloading
in the chroot'ed Hardy environment, started from inside otherwise
perfectly working Gutsy installation. :-)
