    Welcome fredjeh1989,

    the module rt2860 does not exist within bt3 , so i don't know if your card will work.

    What you can try is:

    open the console and type "ifconfig -a"

    Is there any rausb0 device? (can be different) If not try "modprobe rt73" and again "ifconfig -a".
    Then you can do "ifconfig rausb0 up" and your card should work.
    Be sensitive in choosing where you ask your question. You are likely to be ignored, or written off as a loser, if you:

    * post your question to a forum where it's off topic
    * post a very elementary question to a forum where advanced technical questions are expected, or vice-versa
    * cross-post to too many different newsgroups
    * post a personal e-mail to somebody who is neither an acquaintance of yours nor personally responsible for solving your problem
