The first thing you will need to do is find a way of getting the RT2570 CVS driver on to your computer from here
Extract the contents of the archive into your home folder.
Then in the the terminal
(where xxxxxxxxxx is what that part of the folder name which you extracted. (it changes depending on the date)
and then change into the module directory:
after that make the source code:
and then install as root
sudo make install
That covers installing the driver. Now if all goes well you will need to blacklist the default driver that comes with Gutsy.
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
at the bottom add "blacklist rt2500usb" (without the quoatation marks)
Then restart and manually configure your network by clicking the network monitor and choosing "manual configuration" and click "wireless connection" and then properties. Untick "enable roaming mode" and fill in the details as necessary then press ok and be sure to check the box next to wireless configuration.. And restart again and check if you are connected.
If you are not connected, in the terminal:
sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
and change all occurrences of "rausb1" to "rausb0" and then yet again, restart.
