no driver for 54mbps sitecom usb wireless adapter


I recently bought a "Wireless network broadband kit 54Mbps". That is, a Sitecom kit that included a wireless router, a PCMCIA adapter and a USB wireless adapter. The thing is that the USB WL-113 adapter seems to be a new model , and it won't work with wlan drivers. The previous model, WL-012 does work with wlan, but I've installed it and it says "There is no driver for this device" when I plug it into the USB.
What can I do? Do I wait until a newer version of wlan is compatible with it?

Sitecom webpage doesn't give much technical info about their products, nor do their manuals, and I don't know the chipset.

I use Slack 9.1.

Thank you very much in advance

Wow, a device that is NOT on the holy list:

What's /sbin/lsusb say as to its ID?

Got another model number on that little thing?
