I have a request, could the Edimax EW7711IN wan card be supported by IPCOP. Its intended for use on the Blue connection. The chip is Ralink RT3060.

The driver(s) can be downloaded from: http://www.edimax.co.uk/images/Image/Driver_Utility/Wireless/NIC/EW-7711IN/EW-7711IN_2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v2%5B1%5D.4.0.0.tar.bz2.zip
Instructions here: http://www.edimax.co.uk/images/Image/FAQ/Wireless/Linux/How%20to%20install%20EW-7711xxx%20_3070_%20on%20Linux%20Ubuntu%2010.4%20platform.pdf

An alternative source for the drivers may be: http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php?sn=501 (this is the new Ralink website)

Terminal PCI ID:
$ lspci
02:09.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3060 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R
$lspci -n
02:09.0 0280: 1814:3060

Thanks.

    After a lot of forum searching I came across WLANAP. This does , in theory, support the Edimax EW7711IN. Unfortunately WLANAP is well out of date and doesn't work. Is using a wireless card with IPCOP wishful thinking? If it is then there isn't much point in adding the driver I've requested.

    Primary target is to use wired cards.

    The wireless area is too 'special', proprietary drivers, obsolete drivers, etc.
    If it works then fine, but do not expect any miracles.
