I always knew that I needed to fix the rt2870sta driver, I just couldn't remember "the debian way", which uses "module-assistant" or m-a. Turns out that rt2870sta does not have a m-a package defined for it, but there are some instructions to be found in the ubuntu forums (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=960642).
So last night I downloaded the driver source from the manufacturer, added one line to a header file so it would recognize the USB id and soon I had "iwconfig" providing encouraging information before heading to bed.
Still need to get wireless passcodes configured, but I think the hard part is done.
