Comment 0 for bug 659143

In final maverick 64 bit live the WLAN does not become operational. The Network Manager Applet says: "Wireless networks disconnected". The log says: "phy0 -> rt2800pci_load_firmware: Error - PBF system register not ready.".

This does not happen on the 32 bit version (also live) where WLAN works (albeit with a slow 1-2 Mbit/s).
This does also not happen on the current (post 2.6.36rc7) mainline kernel in a current installed maverick (which currently connects, but fails at the dhcp stage).
