Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04e8:7718 Samsung ....

Edit.

It"s work now. First i downloaded drivers for windows and edit rt2870.inf
%Edimax_7718.DeviceDesc% = RTWLAN.ndi, USB\VID_04E8&PID_7718 (here put your vid&pid)

After that I was use linux tool for instaling windows drivers for wireless devices. Then # iwpriv ra0 e2p 20A=2018 and it work :)

This solution may help if Your wifi dongle is invisible on linux before You change vid&pid

Good luck

Hi, I've been reading the wiki and these pages for a couple of days now with a bit of success. But still no luck on rewriting the pid/vid and I was hoping someone could help me out! I didn't know much about linux at first but I'll try to explain.

-my wlan stick is the Edimax EW-7718UN, rev. V1.0a
-operating system Ubuntu 10.0.4.4 on bootable "live cd"
-my tv is Samsung 40ued6200 (40 inch 3D smart)

The problem is the step with loading the modified file using the command sudo insmod os/linux/rt3070sta.ko. I always get the error "no such file or directory". I have extracted the driver specified in the wiki, but inside the folder is no file called rt3070sta.ko! There is however rt2870.ko, maybe that one could work as well?

I must confess I can't quite wrap my head around what I'm doing in Linux. So correct me if I'm wrong ;)
we're rewriting the pid/vid values. In order to do that we need support for the e2p command. We first need to compile the wlan driver, make and load a custom version and use that to write the custom values to the stick.

The driver you need is rt2870. ( http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/RT2800USB.html)
vendor: 7392 ("Edimax Technology Co., Ltd"), product: 7718 ("EW-7718UN 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Ralink RT2870]")
You have to use:

Code: Select all

insmod ./os/linux/rt2870.ko
for your dongle. Read manuals more accurate.

For further support pls. create new topic on support subforum. Thanks.
