    Default Edimax EW-7318USG USB - No longer supported?

    Looking for some clarification on if the Edimax EW-7318USG is still supported by BT5 as I'm not having any luck getting it to work.

    On connecting I get the following error:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# [ 363.981973] phy4 -> rt2500usb_init_eeprom: error - Invalid RT chipset detected.
    [ 363.986670] phy4 -> rt2x00lib_probe_dev: Error - Failed to allocate device.
    Here my are lsmod, lsusb and ipconfig outputs:

    Code:

    I'm getting this error on both Gnome Live and Gnome VM images. When i use the adaptor in Ubuntu or sabayon I is correctly detected and can connect to wireless networks, where as wicd on BT5 will not even see the wireless adaptor. I can also get monitor mode to work on Ubuntu and Sabayon, but they both suffer from the channel -1 bug.


    If anyone can help me get this working, or if it can be confirmed this adaptor is no longer supported then that would be great, thanks.

    You should block rt2500usb driver, just add a line in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:
    blacklist rt2500usb

    reboot and try.
