A+ problem with Edimax WiFi

Tue Jan 20, 2015 8:27 pm

Hi folks.

It's there any reason why the A+ isn't able to power-up (or otherwise fail to start) the popular Edimax EW-7811UN dongle? The interface works in every other Pi I have (all variants), but in neither of two A+'s. Note that I have the Unicorn Hat fitted but not activated. Using the official Pi PSU.

I thought it was a tight fit. Just noticed that the pins in the USB socket are bent on both A+'s. Looks like from other posts this is a common problem.
