I upgraded from  6.2 production  to   6.2-RELEASE #1 in  order  to
get  the ral driver support  for  my  D-Link Rec  C G510 wireless

This is  the string from pciconf
none0 at pci2:7:0: class=0x028000 card=0x3c091186 chip=0x03021814 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Ralink Technology, Corp'
    class      = network

and I verified that the  if_ral_pci.c  source file has the  string
 { 0x1814, 0x0302, "Ralink Technology RT2561" },
in it.

Yet  loading ral using  kldload does not  show  me  any interface in
ifconfig. I  have the following  modules loaded:

6    1 0xc07bd000 b7fc     if_ral.ko
        Contains modules:
                Id Name
                15 pccard/ral
                16 cardbus/ral
                17 pci/ral
 7    5 0xc07c9000 1d7e4    wlan.ko
        Contains modules:
                Id Name
                14 wlan
 8    1 0xc07e7000 1b10     wlan_xauth.ko
        Contains modules:
                Id Name
                18 wlan_xauth

I  am able to  ping  this interface from a remote laptop when  booted
from windows XP.

What  more do I need to get this interface working?
