Unlike the previous two chipsets, the Ralink/RT2x00 combo currently does not offer master mode. Thus, you can't set the WNIC to work as an AP. However, it works just fine in monitor mode so this combo is still good for basic wireless auditing work with tools such as the Aircrack-ng suite and Kismet. The open-source driver project for the Ralink chipset can be downloaded at http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com, and the site has good driver support documentation as well as discussion/help forums.
