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.:confused:

Maybe there is an easier way. Please open a terminal and run and post:
lsusb
uname -r
lsmod | grep rt2We 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:
sudo su
echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
exitLeave the Edimax inserted, reboot and let us have your report.
