PS: Installing the ralink driver works despite error messages if you follow the guide linked here:

There will be complaints about sizes but if you follow the guide it WILL work and fix the WiFi situation, at least until another update comes out and borks everything again. Still a horrible place to put users in though...and considering the guide was written for Intrepid that ought give some idea how long this has been a problem and also make it clear this isn't about exotic hardware on the eeepcs or other netbooks. (Although given the volume of netbooks now being sold and the numbers of which came with Linux preinstalled how anyone can argue with a straight face they are exotic hardware is beyond me... This whole thing is going to be a black eye on the face of Linux if these types of issues keep happening.)
