    Default PCUSBW1150 Wireless N LAN USB Adapter Compatible?

    So... I recently bought a
    Patriot W11n PCUSBW1150 Wireless N LAN USB Adapter from NCIX which states it's compatible with PBO.... and so I thought...because its not working...

    is it really compatible or do i have faulty one?

    How do i check the chipset?

    Is there a way to make it compatible??

    Thanks!

    I have a Patriot N Adapter that works fine but it is a different model # then yours. As far as checking to see if you have a faulty adapter you could always connect it to your Computer and see if it works there. If it does not work on your computer then I will suspect a faulty device.

    You can usually find the chipset when connected to a PC but I am a Linux user and only know how to do that using Linux. I think that in windows you need to check the device manager property for that wifi stick to find the chipset but I am not 100% sure.

    Good luck!

    it turns out the chipset (according to my Windows Driver) is RTL8188CU...
    is there anything to telnet it to the pbo??? or it's just not compatible?
