I just setup this wireless card
Code:

Bus 002 Device 008: ID 7392:7711 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7711UTn nLite Wireless Adapter [Ralink RT2870]

it's working and connects to other AP normally. But initially I bought this wifi dongle to setup AP on it. According to official readme file for RT2870, driver built from ralink website sources should support AP mode - http://pastebin.com/t1rVJM9h
But driver and its firmware i have installed in gentoo way, first enabled device support in kernel then installed firmware from "sys-kernel/linux-firmware " package.
I'm using Gnome 2 desktop with Network Manager, but want to setup AP via hostapd demon. So i opened hostapd.conf and changed only interface name to wlan1 then
tried to start hostapd
Code:

localhost dem # /etc/init.d/hostapd start
 * Caching service dependencies ...
Service `hostapd' needs non existent service `net.wlan0'                                                             [ ok ]
 * ERROR: hostapd needs service(s) net.wlan0

But it looks for net.wlan0.
