This is a known bug (#422685).  This model was reported as working with
a later upstream version of rt2x00.  However, the latest version depends
on a newer wifi stack, mac80211, which means it is incompatible with
current Debian Linux kernels (bug #421747), so we cannot currently
provide a useful version of rt2x00.

The mac80211 code will be included in Linux 2.6.22, so when that is
released and packaged it may be possible for us to update rt2x00.

In the mean time the "legacy" rt73 driver based on Ralink's code may
work for you.  You can get that from
<http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Downloads>.  Perhaps we
should package it?
