Review of Linux Compatibility

The Edimax EW-7733UND is a WiFi USB stick which supports wireless network connections according to IEEE 802.11n. It has the USB ID 7392:7733:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 7392:7733 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd

The EW-7733UND bases on the Ralink RT3573 chipset. Although there is a patch available for the Linux kernel 3.12, which provides experimental support for the chipset of the stick, this driver does not load for the EW-7733UND.

Instead, one has to use the Ralink driver, which is available for download at This driver needs to be unpacked, and afterwards compiled and installed by hand:

sudo make clean
sudo make
sudo make install

These command compile and install the kernel module rt3573sta, which can be loaded into the kernel by:

sudo modprobe rt3573sta
