I bought a new D-Link N150 Pico DWA-121 Wi-Fi adapter (although it turns out, the model is actually a few years old by now) and it doesn't work out of the box. This has me fretting, since I've seen a few notes of it working ...
I've tried the D-Link drivers for Linux found here without being able to install them. Neither did ndisgtk and the Windows drivers found on the same page work.
The device is detected, but that's about it:
:~$ lsusb Bus 002 Device 004: ID 2001:331b D-Link Corp.
lshw -class network gives me nothing but stuff about Ethernet interface (which I assume isn't relevant) and rfkill list all yields nothing (is that unusual?)
The chipset ussed is RTL8188eu.ndi, at least judging from this line in one of the Windows driver included on the accompanying disc:
%DLINK_331B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8188eu.ndi, USB\VID_2001&PID_331B
