Bug Description

USB ID for the mentioned Wifi Usb adapter seems to be missing in the p54usb driver, so i need to recompile p54usb.c for each PC i setup or after every kernel update.

can you please add the USB ID to the ubuntu/lubuntu/xubuntu kernel ?

3.13-rc4, 3.12.6, 3.11.10, 3.4.75, 3.2.53 and 3.0.101 do all have support for this device

despite other reports, this older device is wpa2 capable, it`s only a matter of the correct firmware if it works with recent wifi networks.

The commit you mentioned has been in the mainline kernel since 3.8-rc3:

git describe --contains 3194b7fcdf6caea338b5d2c72d76fed80437649c
v3.8-rc3~8

Can you confirm this is still an issue in the latest Trusty kernel?

regarding the usb id it´s not an issue in the trusty kernel anymore (besides that there is an issue with the firmware-nonfree), but the issue exists with current ubuntu releases and that makes it a pain to keep this adapter working on different pc`s - as every kernel update breaks the wifi.

this bugreport should have been tagged for saucy, unfortunately i don´t know how to tag a bugreport for a specific ubuntu release - otherwise i would have tagged it for saucy
