I would like to get the Ralink RT5370 module to work on the Pi, but I couldn't find any tutorial related to the Arch Linux. How can I install the RT5370 WiFi dongle driver on Arch Linux?

I found these instructions, but they are for a Debian system and I don't know how to do the equivalent thing in Arch Linux.

Simply installing 'wireless-tools' was enough for udev to pick it up and load the correct module at next boot. Using 'lsmod' I believe the module is 'rt2x00usb'.

After that and following the instructions for wpa_supplicant and I was connected to my wireless: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WPA_Supplicant
