Ralink driver keeps resetting - F15

Well, I reinstalled after this update fiasco we just had and now I am having issues with my driver resetting. I open terminal and type in:
Quote:
sudo rmmod rt2800usb
Finishes properly. I then pull my USB device, plug it back in, new driver kicks in. Wireless then works fine. However, upon reboot, it's back to using the rt2800usb driver, which doesn't work. So I head back to terminal and repeat the step above and all's well after.

I am fairly new to Fedora, so how can I actually get Fedora to completely blacklist the rt2800usb driver?

Add a line to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
You can edit the file with
Code:
su -
gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Where do I put it exactly? Should I append it to the end of the blacklist.conf?

Edit:
I just appended it to the bottom:
Quote:
# network drivers
blacklist rt2800usb

It doesn't matter where you put it and comments (marked with #) are optional.

That should do the trick!

Ok, that's done. Now I need to find out which driver it reverted to. I want it to use the rt3070sta, but am not sure if that's the one that is the most stable for it.
