I am having trouble with a USB wireless adaptor. Its a 150M USB WiFi Wireless LAN 802.11 n/g/b Adapter. I am using 12.04. In terminal I have tried a few things. I ran lsusb and got the results:

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c512 Logitech, Inc. LX-700 Cordless Desktop Receiver
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 04d9:2519 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

I followed the instructions here, but downloaded the correct driver for my card (rtl8187L_linux_1041.0209.2012). Still wont work with linux, but works fine on windows 7. It came with an installation CD, so I tried using the instructions from that website but instead having the directory go to the included cd, but the make file is something different. Its a 'makedvr' file. Also, the downloaded driver is newer than the driver on the cd.

Thanks for the help!

Your device is not an rtl8187 device, so that driver is incorrect. Do you have the driver rt2870sta in your install? Find out with: modinfo rt2870sta | grep 148F –  chili555 Sep 13 '13 at 14:46
    
Ran the command and it came back with ERROR: modinfo: could not find module rt2870sta –  Zack Sep 15 '13 at 4:42
    
I tried searching that driver and following the suggestions that other people have tried and they didnt work for me. Any help is appreciated thanks Zack –  Zack Sep 15 '13 at 4:53
    
How about: modinfo rt2800usb | grep 3070 –  chili555 Sep 15 '13 at 13:02
    
I got this as a return: alias: usb:v148Fp3070d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* alias: usb:v8516p3070d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* alias: usb:v07B8p3070d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* –  Zack Sep 15 '13 at 21:49
