The rt2500pci module does not work, the module that works is named only as
rt2500.

the modules that comes with suse is rt2500pci.ko and rt2500usb.ko they does
not work, the module that works is the module created by your compilation
rt2500.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/extra/rt2500.ko ....... works
/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/updates/rt2500pci.ko .......no
/lib/modules/2.6.18.2-34-default/updates/rt2500usb.ko .......no

look in /etc/modprobe.conf and see if you have alias ra0 rt2500 there, it is
at the end of the file, then it should work.

You can do a lsmod | grep rt2500 from a console and if you can see it there
the module is loaded.
