1.) Load the module:

modprobe rt61

NOTE: Add /sbin/modprobe rt61 in the /etc/rc.modules file for automatic start during the boot. This module needs to be started after the PCMCIA modules.

2.) Setup the encryption type, SSID and passphrases -> edit the following file (don't change the structure!):


WPA2 example:

3.) setup your IP address / gateway / DNS servers:

Skip the probe part ...
Once finished, run service net start from the root account

b.) using dhcpcd

killall dhcpcd
dhcpcd ra0

c.) manually
ifconfig ra0 up
ifconfig ra0 A.B.C.D
route add default gw E.F.G.H
echo "nameserver I.J.K.L" > /etc/resolv.conf
echo "search mydomain.local" >> /etc/resolv.conf


Interface ra0 can be renamed to eth0 with the nameif tool.

ifconfig ra0 up
fconfig ra0 down
nameif eth0 AB:CD:EF:GH:IJ

A new package release has been added into the repo .... it calls depmod for the correct kernel version

NOTE: Backup Your rt61sta.dat config before updating

I patched the sources in order to change the default device name from ra* to eth*.
There's no need for /etc/rc.d/net changes anymore.
