    USB Wireless LAN


    I'm trying to configure my dad's internet on his computer for him. He has SuSE 9.3 installed and uses a USB wireless lan adaptor to connect to a Netgear router. It works in Windows but not in Linux. The reason why he is using a USB adaptor is because his motherboard's LAN card doesn't work and neither does any of his PCI slots. He does not even have sound but he is not too concerned.

    Here is the exact model of the wireless adaptor:
    Gigabyte GN-WB01GS USB WLAN Card.

    Please help!

    EDIT:

    I ran /sbin/lsusb and this is what I got:

    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1044:8008 Chu Yuen Enterprise Co., Ltd
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    I then removed the USB WLAN device and got this:

    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    So it's the Chu Yuen Enterprise Co., Ltd

    Anyone ever heard of this? I'll see if I can get some drivers on Google, but please any help is greatly appreciated!
