I really don't have any clue why they advert these things as "Linux compatible" if it won't actually work, or works only partially.
Can't get it to work at all in any circumstance when using 'traditional method with ifup'.
It will connect and allow throughput when using 'user controlled with Network Manager'.
This is what I see on screen:
Connection will last about 30 - 60 seconds, sometime about 2 - 5 minutes. Then it shows as connected but has NO throughput at all. It is showing the device as b/g band in Network Manager, but it is an n band adapter and shows as such in Konsole.

I ran other commands too and tried to post, but then connection just stopped responding. I had to reboot to other HDD to get on Windows so as to even be able to get on here and post. The adapter works just fine with connection of 144M in Windows XP Pro.
I see so many pages from google search about this with many other people having the same trouble with Asus USB-N13 adapter. Even with all the responses, none of them ever solves the problem. Now I've got such bad headache from trying to figure this out and I don't understand any of all this stupid code stuff. Looks like trying to read Chinese but don't know what a word of it means.
So what to do?
