    Help with Asus USB-N13

    Hi, I am using the asus usb-n13 wireless adapter on a ubuntu VM (specifically backtrack 5 r2), but I cannot get the drivers to install. I have tried the drivers that i got from the asus website http://www.asus.com/Networks/Wireless_Adapters/USBN13/. After much monkeying around with those drivers, i was able to get them to compile and install without errors. However the device still fails to show up after a reboot. I tried this but i still got the same results http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1444746&page=7. Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.

    Code:
    lsusb:
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0b05:17ab ASUSTek Computer, Inc. 
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    Description:    Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS
    Code:
    uname -mr
    3.2.6 i686

    Good job, Asus. There are two different versions of the USB-N13; one is a Ralink rt2870/rt3070 chipset. The other is a Realtek 8192cu device. Apples and oranges.

    If you created the files in the link you gave us, delete them. Then check here, especially post #2. Notice the usb.id is identical.
