Ops, it requires a non-free firmware. To quote, "Note that some other 
RT chipsets, including the RT2501, RT61 and RT2571W/RT2671, require firmware 
that is not released under a free software license. This makes these devices 
incompatible with a fully free system."

Perhaps it is because the firmware has been stripped out of gNewSense already.

In this digital era, where computing technology is pervasive,
your freedom depends on the software controlling those computing devices.

It is free as in freedom, not as in free beer!
