The WiFi dongleBy penbex

It gets fairly warm! Also, reception does not seem to be as good as my other wireless devices. So lets take a closer look. On the front of the WiFi stick There is a big G and on the back a label with the FCC ID NDD 9573180610. Using that number and the FCC website you can obtain the FCC Test documents which provide detailed information.

  • Manufacturer’s company: EDIMAX TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD.
  • Product Name: 802.11g Turbo Wireless LAN USB Adapter
  • Model (Brand) Name EW-7318UG V3.0 (EDIMAX) / GWU-E18G (GLP)
  • We are dealing with an Edimax EW-7318UG. From the picture (taken from the FCC report) it is clear that it is using the RT2571 chipset. Also, The RomFS directory /etc/Wireless/Rt73sta seems to contain the driver. So, if the stick ever dies or you just want to try a different stick then one with the same chipset should work without problems.
