Hello list,

this is my first post and i'll try to give all information as i can.

First of all i've read that "Ralink driver doesn't work on ppc". Is it true ??

I'm using Powerbook G4 with USB-Wireless Adaptor (Belkin - F5D7050A version 2000).I think it uses Ralink 2500 driver ?

I've compiled the last version of kismac-USB using SVN ...i load correctly the driver o USB-Device ... but when i try to scan Networks ... kismac doesn´t find anything.If i change to airport extreme i can scan my home Wireless-lan correctly.

If i open a terminal i see this in logs:

Aparently it seems to be OK but doesn't scan anything.

Somebody have any idea or can help me ??

Thanks a lot.
