    Sorry, I meant the full iwlist command as I suggested before.

    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan2 up
    sudo iwlist wlan2 scan

    the ouput for both

    paulnrhodes@paulnrhodes-laptop ~ $ sudo ifconfig wlan2 up
    paulnrhodes@paulnrhodes-laptop ~ $ sudo iwlist wlan scan
    wlan Interface doesn't support scanning.

    paulnrhodes@paulnrhodes-laptop ~ $

    Ok, let's try the other way then.

    Open up /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf
    Remove the line blacklist rt2500usb and replace with blacklist rt73usb. Reboot, check iwconfig for the interface name and try the above again, plus dmesg output.
