RaLink RT73 USB Enhanced Driver

RaLink RT73 USB Enhanced Driver
* Support for Fragmentation Attack
* Interface is called rausb0 instead of wlan0 to prevent some tools incorrectly detecting it as wlanng or hostap driver
* Injection speed can be selected with iwconfig rate command. The default speed yet is 54 MBit. You may want to lower it to 1 MBit before injection with iwconfig rausb0 rate 1M
* NEW: ToDS packets aren't dropped by the driver anymore. WPA handshake captures are finally possible!

Version 3.0.0 is a new fork from the current serialmonkey CVS. It has fixes for 2.6.24 and 2.6.25 and does not need setting a MAC Address before bringing the interface up. This version includes all the enhancement of the 2.0 series of this driver. If you unplug the card while its still in use, it may crash your system. So close all applications accessing it, bring the interface down and then remove the device.
There is a tiny extra in the 3.0.0 driver. Maybe you can find it with iwpriv ;)
Version 3.0.1 has an updated base version from serialmonkey CVS. It is patched with all the features of 3.0.0 and it has been successfully tested with 2.6.26 vanilla kernel.
Version 3.0.2 provides kernel version 2.6.27 compatibility. NOTE: You may also try the mac80211 drivers included in 2.6.27 since these drivers are pretty nice too ;)
