kernel 2.6.16.1 and wlan rt2500

Sorry my spelling - I compiled my own 2.6.16.1 kernel from source and everything went fine - no errors at boot and the system works ok. I compiled rt2500-drivers(http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Downloads) and no problems there too.
lshwd shows my rt2500 card but I can't get it up - there is no module at all, iwconfig shows "no wireless extensions" and ifconfig ra0 shows "no such device" and modprobe rt2500 "module not found" :oops:
So what I have forgot :?:

Re: kernel 2.6.16.1 and wlan rt2500

Did you include wireless extensions in your kernel configuration? Did you install the modules after compiling? Are you sure to have used rt2500 and not rt2x00?

Wireless extensions are included and I did make/make install and everything seemed to go right - no errors! And I have allways used rt2500-cvs-daily -drivers because they have been very stable (in my system).

Code:   
modprobe -l | grep rt2

Thanks for that - there was missing rt2500.ko module and I added it in place and wlan is now working.
But now I have nvidia-problems... maybe I can solve it later  tongue
