    Edimax EW-7711USn USB Wireless Driver Problem

    Hi
    I m new to Ubuntu, Linux and this Forum
    I just install Ubuntu 10.04 with Wubi. Everything work nice but my USB Wireless Adaptor.
    http://www.edimax.com/en/support_det...=303&button=Go

    I have downloaded driver from;
    http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_supp...ort.php?sn=501
    and follow the README file but when it comes "/sbin/insmod rt2870sta.ko" throws "insmod: error inserting 'rt2870sta.ko': -1 File exists" error


    This is my iwconfig;
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSIDff/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=19 dBm
    Retry long limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
    Encryption keyff
    Power Managementn


    And lsmod

    rt2x00usb 11164 1 rt2800usb
    rt2x00lib 32165 2 rt2800usb,rt2x00usb

    crc_ccitt 1675 1 rt2800usb
    rt2870sta 626667 0

    I m using my ethernet card to connect but wireless adapter would be nice and tidy cable mass. What is wrong with this, any help? Thanks

    I think my buddy the Wild Man would like you to add another step:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    Reboot with the ethernet detached and give us your report.

    Thanks for your interest, after blacklist rt2800usb, disconnect usb adapter and reboot. All i get is this. And "rfkill list all" returns nothing.

    Re: Edimax EW-7711USn USB Wireless Driver Problem

    Previously, you had rt2800usb AND rt2870sta loaded. They conflict. The usual fix is to blacklist rt2800usb and let rt2870sta do the work. Now, even rt2870sta is missing. Let's load it explicitly:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2870sta
    Does that help?
    Code:
    iwconfig

    Hi, chili555 is correct,
    I think my buddy the Wild Man would like you to add another step:
    I did suspect that as well, it has been a long time since I have seen this card with 10.04 so I just wanted to double check.
    Thanks
