I think it's detecting the wired network card built in to the motherboard.

lusb
bash: lusb: command not found

lshw -C network

Hi there,

I have a "Sagem" brand usb dongle ... that modern linuxes just find and work thru!! It is a model 'XG 760G' ...and I got it off eBay from a merchant in China. Very cheap, nothing to adjust ... it just works. Try searching for 'usb wifi card' dongle or similar. Postage to Australia was no problem. Deal with well-regarded merchant.
