@Anders: Read the link above to get an understanding why this question has been closed, you would have to ask (on) Amazon or the original manufacturers whether they support Linux. There are also hardware lists available for Linux in which you can see whether your device is supported... – Tom Wijsman Mar 1 '12 at 3:27

There is a source code to support USB WiFi adapter on drivers/net/usb/*.c of your kernel source. There are some model name and tables. Go kernel website and get the kernel source code.
