I've been browsing everything I can find in relation to this card and I've come up against a brick wall. Can anyone offer any further advice? Here's what I've done:
- I've got the linux version of the drivers from the Edimax website. - 2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_184.108.40.206
- I've changed the wpa_supplicant configuration settings, compiled the drivers, built them and installed them and blacklisted the old RT2 drivers.
- I've activated the new module and it activates on start up. The card sits with both lights on, the TX light blinking every 5 seconds.
Here's the standard command outputs:
lspci:matt@aperture:~$ lsmod |grep -e rt2 -e rt3
rt3562sta 914916 1
Note that the driver it says is in use is rt2860, even though it's not installed. Is this part of the problem or a red herring? On the plus side is correctly identifying it as an Edimax chip, and the model number of 7722.03:06.0 Network controller : Ralink corp. Device [1814:3062]
Subsystem: Edimax Computer Co. Device [1432:7722]
Kernel driver in use: rt2860
Kernel modules: rt3562sta, rt2800pci
