I think your 160k uses fedora repo. So just install a non-free kernel and the kmod I told you.

Sorry. I do not know how to Install a Kernel without formatting all disk...
- How can the Fedora 16 Kernel be installed preserving the rest of the contents of my SSD...?
- Won't this bring incompatibility problems with the rest of the Blag 160k Libraries and else...?

Having two or more kernel will not damage any thing.

...and how can I do that...
without damaging the whole Blag System...?

No! Just fedora kernel.

*So do I have to Uninstall Blag and Install Fedora...?

The solution I gave will work!

Anyway I don't know how(/where) to tell the computer to look for wireless networks...

No! Don't know because not one of my boxes has such a wifi chipset.

Although I still have to check it (now I'm in the middle of an Internet Freedom issues Multi-dialog), in the previous link, I found the driver...
rt2860-184.108.40.206-1.fc14.noarch.html Common files for RaLink 802.11 rt2860 driver RpmFusion Free for Fedora 15 for i386 rt2860-220.127.116.11-1.fc14.noarch.rpm
...tThat I like to try...
(Do You know this one...?)

It'll not work without a fedora kernel because linux-libre kernel doesn't load non-free firmware.
So when plugged (ethernet cable) you may use a linux-libre; when using WiFi you'll use fedora kernel. I do like that with my Sony VAIO that has intel pro wireless card.

k! I don't know about this chipset but I think it'll work like that:
Install rpmfusion repositories:
#yum install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
#yum install --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
Then you'll have to install a kernel from fedora because it won't work with a 100% free linux-libre kernel.
And you'll have to install the kmod-rt2860 module from rpmfusion non-free repo.
Since we're speaking about non-free stuff I have to move this thread to the non-free section.

It must be this:
01:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT2860
as when I first issue the command, the wireless wasn't activated...

Is it a USB one?
