Seen that too and I have tried the rt2500pci kernel module but using
that module the wifi card would not even setup a link to an open AP (or
an AP with WEP encryption). Seems that module could use some TLC.

The C54Ri card specifically needs the rt2500 or rt2500pci kernel module.
The rt61pci kernel module is for cards with newer rt25xx chipsets.
My next step is to try the rt2500 legacy driver from
http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt2500-cvs-daily.tar.gz with the
rt2500fix2-fc9-188.8.131.52-and-above.patch.gz patch so it compiles on F9
