    Cannot load Edimax Wireless Driver

    I have just bought an Edimax EW-7711UTn wireless adaptor with CD. I have the Linux folder on the CD. Folder name 2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0.
    How do I install from this folder
    Step by step instructions would be much appreciated.

    Maybe there is an easier way. Please open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    lsusb
    uname -r
    lsmod | grep rt2
    We only need to see the line for your wireless device, evidently a Ralink.

    The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \. Thanks.

    You have a little conflict going there. Please open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    Leave the Edimax inserted, reboot and let us have your report.
