So I decided to try a ralink based card instead and having different issue

firstly the ral man page says to include "device ralfw" in the kernel, but
there is no such device as buildkernel says. Compiled it without it and
upon trying to dhclient wlan0 I get this:

ral0: need multicast update callback
rt2561fw: could not load firmware image, error 2
ral0: rt2661_load_microcode: unable to retreive firmware image rt2561fw
ral0: rt2661_init_locked: could not load 8051 microcode, error 22

Why isnt there ralfw and where can I get this firmware?
