    The first step is for us to have more detailed information about the chipset on the adapter. Please do the following and post the output back here:

    in a terminal window (applications/accessories/terminal):

    (with the device plugged into a USB port)

    lsusb <press enter>


    Post the output of that back here and we can try to go from there.

    Hey srry, I'm not the OP, but i have the same exact problem, here are my results

    arkt1k@Nullm00n:~$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1737:0079 Linksys
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1058:1102 Western Digital Technologies, Inc.
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 005: ID 058f:9360 Alcor Micro Corp. 8-in-1 Media Card Reader
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1241:1503 Belkin Keyboard
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 045e:008c Microsoft Corp. Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 1130:1620 Tenx Technology, Inc.
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    so obviously, my bus 001 device 008 is the usb adapter. The model number on the back says WUSB600N ver.2

    Any help would be appreciated!
