Comment(by alannisota at gmail.com):

 I've uploaded a new firmware r5000.512.hex firmware.  This was provided to
 me by Sergio Ammirata.  We found that some hardware is not compatible (at
 least in Linux) with 1024byte packets even with the relevant kernel patch.
 the r5000.512.hex firmware uses 512byte packets, and should be fully
 compliant with the USB 2.0 spec.  It doesn't provide any additional
 features for Linux, so if the normal r5000.hex works, there's no reason to
 use this one, but if you can't get r5ktest to capture, you might try this
 alternate firmware.  This firmware is NOT supported by nextcomwireless,
 but it has been tested to work well on multiple hardware setups in Linux.
