With The Brand New Blag 160k installation, it's the first time I'm going to try wireless connection... but I don't know from where to start...
Any Suggestions?

:)

Code:
$lspci

Only the wireless card references line.

$lsusb

It must be this:

01:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT2860

as when I first issue the command, the wireless wasn't activated...
Suggestions?

k! I don't know about this chipset but I think it'll work like that:

Install rpmfusion repositories:
Code:
#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
#yum update


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.

I hav found this:

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=rt2860

Perhaps I got to try something from here before install a Fedora Kernel...

(I have till this Monday, when I will have to use the wifi connection in a congress...
If it doesn't work...
..I'll try the Ethernet connection, if I find a free RJ45 plug...)

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.

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...

rt2860-2.4.0.0-1.fc14.noarch.html Common files for RaLink 802.11 rt2860 driver RpmFusion Free for Fedora 15 for i386 rt2860-2.4.0.0-1.fc14.noarch.rpm
...tThat I like to try...

(Do You know this one...?)

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