I today got stuck while trying to install/set up my USB-WLAN Adapter. It's a DWA-111 USB-Stick (Rev. A1) and my machine is currently running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. (As far as I know it's got a RT73 chipset by ralink, but I am not completely sure.) So much for this.
The Adapter runs perfectly using a machine with Win7 installed but it does absolutely nothing when I plug it at my Ubuntu 12.04 machine.
ifconfig show nothing, as well as the device is not listed when executing
lsusb. So it seems it's entirely unknown to my computer.
Here's some output of
lsusb, now showing the D-LINK device (as already described below in comments I just noticed the device is appearing and disappearing every now and then):

This error messages just keep repeating over and over.
Any ideas how do I get the device installed and running? And additionally any idea about the
