I've just discovered that the Ralink 802.11 nWlan - Chipset RT2870/3070, RT2800 usb is no longer supported. To be more precisely this chipset is delivered with ALFA uBo device.
It has been tested with both BT R2 vmware images, Gnome edition 32 and 64 bit.
As an example Kismet shows: Source "wlan0": channel get ioctl failed 22: Invalid argument.
Also I've tried to enable the monitor using CLI: airmon-ng start wlan0. The mon0 became active but invoking the command airodump-ng mon0 doesn't bring any results so something is wrong.
