I have come upon a wireless networking dongle that I'd purchased several years ago but had lost for a long time. If I have any of the original documentation or the driver CD that came with it I have no idea where it might be now.
It is generally possible to get a driver based upon he chipset used by the dongle. The problem is I honestly have no idea how to determine what that is. When I plug the dongle in on several different Windows 7 machines the presence of the device is recognized, but Windows Update does not find a suitable driver. The device shows up in device manager as Usb2Wlan, but even when I go into the advanced properties when it's connected I'm not seeing anything that rings a bell in any of them.
I know the thing works just fine on my ancient Windows XP laptop that has drivers installed for the device and would like to locate same so that I can use this thing on those occasions when carrying a machine to get a wired connection is impractical.
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
