What does "mount" show? Also is "mount -t vfat /dev/usb 1-1 /mnt/usb" actually what you used to mount? I'd think it would complain about the "1-1". Are you sure that's what the device is called?

What is usb wireless adapter? If it is something like wifi adapter then you do not mount it like a storage disk.

USB thumb drives are like storage drives so they will not need drivers for mounting. And hence your distro mounts it. Wireless adapter will need its driver to be installed if it is not already. Anyhow, what is your distribution and what is Airlink 101?
