Gentelmen, I was avoiding this question for about 6 months now, didnt want to bother nobody, but i am near nervous breakdown since i got the adaptor EW-7612HPn. spent many weekends trying to get it to work, trying to prove to myself that i can do it. i failed.
The biggest success i got so far with this adaptor is that i managed to get the blu light blinking with the comand rfkill unblock all
Interesting observation: airmon-ng does not show this adapter at all.

BT5 installed onto HD as the only os.
adaptor: http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_detail.php?pd_id=341
drivers supported on their website up to kernel 2.6?
my kernel is that of BT5 wich is 3.2.6 uname -r?
as far as i understand the chipset is that "RealTek RTL8192SU Wireless Driver"
ive downloaded RTL819xSU_usb_linux_v2.6.6.0.20120405.zip
tried to make and make install
obviously clash with versions?
im confused. i like linux, but this one got me a bit too far. i need help
