Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.28-11-generic

Ubuntu 9.04 Final, AMD64

I've been using a Belkin RT2870 based USB adapter with Intrepid, and upgraded to Jaunty today.

Previous to the dist-upgrade, I was able to compile my own driver (rt2870sta.ko) from source on Ralink's website after adding my device's ID to include/rt2870.h.

        {USB_DEVICE(0x050D,0x815C)}, /* Belkin */ \

My working Intrepid installation was using kernel:
uname -r = 2.6.27-11-generic
cat /proc/version_signature = Ubuntu 2.6.27-11.31-generic

Similar to bug #323473, I found that rt2780 module has been included in 2.6.28-11, but it doesn't detect this device.

The lsusb output for this device is
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 050d:815c Belkin Components

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
