Hi all,

 This is for bug

 To get the Buffalo WLI-UC_GN 802.11n USB-wifi  device working,
please apply the following trivial patch:

I have confirmed that this makes it work for me.

Please also consider adding the following lines as well:

+       {USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x2070)}, /* Ralink 2070L */

This seems to be confirmed to work by various other people on  but I cannot
personally confirm.  I'm pretty sure it should be added though.

Here is the form I would send those patches upstream. However I would for
now only send the first one. The reason is that the thread you pointed to
seems working on a 3070 driver. Ok, the staging driver seems potentially
cover both, but I would like the be more comfortable with that.
I'd like to propose the following. I build some test kernels and point to
them in your bug report. Could you point people in the forum there and if 
that kernel works for that other hw as well let them coment on the bug?
