0000067: Firmware for Ralink USB Wifi Stick not loaded
I try to use an Asus WL-167g USB WLAN Adapter. The chipset is a Ralink one needing the firmware rt73.bin. Although the packages is installed and the file exists in /lib/firmware, it is not loaded.
The expected lines in the syslog would be like the following:

Nov 7 11:24:03 host kernel: [ 21.363206] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Info - Loading firmware file 'rt73.bin'
Nov 7 11:24:03 host kernel: [ 21.372426] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Info - Firmware detected - version: 1.7
Try with a Wifi stick with the Ralink chipset and see it not working.
No tags attached.
