Glad you got it running. Can you post the commands you used. This would help people seeing this thread.
Edit: You followed the instructions from AlbertP's first response, correct?
As this Topic is over a year old, an answer as to what fixed the issue would be beneficial to the community. That page alone doesn't tell us, in simple terms, the commands used to make the card work.
Yet I'm glad you hung in there, I'd had tossed the card if not under warranty or exchange period. Most all retailers has a timeframe for exchange or refund, though I also realize that if purchased online, there may be a shipping charge & a RMA needs to be issued. However, never mention Linux, rather a OS printed on the package. Some vendors looks for an excuse not to refund. This is why I use PayPal and when offered, will always use Google's Trusted Store protection, both covers your back. Certain credit cards will force a refund of return shipping costs, yet regardless, leave Linux out of the discussion. Unless the package says it supports Linux.
If the package or site didn't say it supported Linux, there goes your case for a refund.
Am glad that after a year, you've found a resolution that works, for now anyway. What you'll now need to be concerned about is if the adapter overheats, which will lead to poor performance. One way to see is download a huge ISO, such as W10 (nearly 4GB), using a download manager on full throttle. If it's going to heat up, this test will reveal how it'll hold up, which is yet to be determined.
Hopefully we'll hear back on the commands used to make the adapter work, not all of that output on the linked page, rather the exact commands used (probably just a few at the most).
Enjoy, and be sure to stress test the USB card by the download of a large file using a download manager. Firefox offers at no charge 'Down Them All', in the Add-ons, a powerful download manager that milks every last drop of speed from your connection & adapter. If it's hot afterwards, be looking for a replacement, as it won't hold up. Time will tell.
Personally, I wouldn't touch Belkin nor Buffalo wireless adapters with a 10 foot pole, both are known for running hot. Which leads to slow or broken connections.
