    First, your USB-id database is outdated. Not a big deal, though.

    7392:7711 is EW-7711UTn nLite Wireless Adapter [Ralink RT2870]

    There may be a problem with this device, see post #25 for solution.

    You have two driver modules loading for your device. It will not work with two modules loaded.

    Code:
    ============ lsmod ============
    Module Size Used by
    
    rt2870sta 461811 0
    
    rt2800usb 31531 0
    You should first try blacklisting the rt2800usb driver.
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modpobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add this to the bottom of the list, and reboot:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800usb
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
