How I can turn on fast frame and turbo modes for ralink wireless card:
ral0 at pci0:2:11:0:       class=0x028000 card=0x25611814 chip=0x03011814
rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Ralink Technology, Corp'
    device     = 'RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI'
    class      = network

The card supports these features under windows but here (freebsd 7.0 stable)
I could not switch the on.
ifconfig -v ral0

I tried to execute
ifconfig ral0 ff
ifconfig ral0 dturbo
ifconfig ral0 burst

But all lines filed..
Maybe the BSD  driver does not support them.
What do you think?
