Can you provide lsusb (i.e. run "/sbin/lsusb" in a terminal without the quotes) output for the device please? That will help us identify the chipset that it uses, so we can help you find a driver for it.

Also, in future, please use punctuation in your posts because long run-on sentences are difficult to read.

It looks like you may have to use NDISwrapper for this, which allows you to use Windows drivers. Are you using Ubuntu? If so, then http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde...t-1059251.html and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper should be useful to you. If not, then tell us which distribution you are using.
