Description of problem:

I got the chance to test test4 x86_64 livecd on a laptop with a rt2500pci card.
but I am unable to do anything with it. it does not acciotate when used with nm.
so I tryed to do it using wpa_supplicant but it said "no ap found"..
then I noticed that iwlist scan shows that the device does not support scanning...
why? have I done anything wrong?

I just tested a LinkSys WMP54G (v4) card with the RaLink 2500 chipset under a
Kadischi built LiveCD mastered from the development tree on April 25th, 2007.

Kernel: kernel-2.6.20-1.3104.fc7.i686

The card works just fine.
Are you sure you brought the card up with ifconfig wlan0 up before trying to
scan access points?
