the command lsusb shows the usb id of : 050d:935b
create a file called /etc/modprobe.d/rt2870sta.conf
Add this line to the file with no line breaks.
install rt2870sta modprobe --ignore-install rt2870sta ; /bin/echo "050d 935b" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2870/new_id
After that if you restart it should be at least recognizing the hardware, manifested by using the command dmesg | grep firmware
That should show an error message about the kernel not being able to load the firmware for the wireless card. To remedy that, we just need to install a common firmware package.
sudo zypper in kernel-firmware
Now, edit the file /etc/sysconfig/kernel and add rt2870sta to the MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT section, so it looks like this.
Save the file and reboot, or use the command sudo modprobe rt2870sta, and the card should be working now. I tested with unsecured, WEP and WPA. Everything seems to work great.
This USB identifier has been added to the kernel and in the future (it will take a little while to propogate out and be available in the update repositories) all you should have to do is install the kernel-firmware package and it will just work.
