Hi bluelulu :)

On the computer on which the USB Wireless Adapter works, get in the Device Manager following the instructions below. From there, go under Network Adapters, right-click on the adapter and select Properties. Go in the Details tab and select Hardware Ids in the drop down list. Copy and paste the first line that shows up in the middle box here.
