Wireless dongle stopped working

#1
I have an Edimax EW-7711uan which has been working fine until I plugged it into a Mac. Since then it is no longer detected when plugged into the Humax (no, ethernet cable was not plugged in at the same time). I should say that the dongle still works fine on PCs, including one running Linux. The only way I can get it to work with the Hummy now is to manually run "insmod /lib/modules/rt3070sta.ko" in one of the start up scripts (S00wlan to be precise). The dongle clearly still works but the Hummy no longer thinks it is a supported model.

I am wondering if the Mac driver has somehow altered the info stored in the dongle's EEPROM. The entry I have in /proc/bus/usb/devices looks like (without running the manual insmod step)

Code:
T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  3 Spd=480 MxCh= 0

E:  Ad=05(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=06(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
Could someone who has a working Edimax EW-7711uan kindly check theirs and let me know if there are differences in the output?

Cheers.
