Seems that the kernel/NetworkManager no longer
can load the rt2870sta module.  I tried:

# dmesg
usb 1-4: USB disconnect, address 3
usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=14b2, idProduct=3c27
usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-4: Product: 802.11 n WLAN
usb 1-4: Manufacturer: Ralink
usb 1-4: SerialNumber: 1.0

# lssub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 14b2:3c27 Ralink Technology, Corp. rt2870 802.11n

# lsmod | grep ra

# modprobe rt2870
FATAL: Module rt2870 not found.

# yum reinstall rt2870 kmod-rt2870
(then checked again, nothing has changed)

I checked everything else, the network-scripts and so on
and the configurations seems intact...

So how can I get my connection back?
