Why did "no_string's" list have line numbers while what I got and posted did not?

I've not used the device in question, but here's what I came up with after a bit of searching. Your wireless device is using the rtl8192cu module which has caused problems for a number of people. This link is the best summary I've found to explain how to prevent it from being loaded and use the RealTek driver instead.

Thank you for the help. I will try what the link suggested.

One problem with the Asus N13 that I learned is that the adapter is said to come with two very different internal components, but that's not shown on the adapter or the box it comes in. It is said not even ASUS discloses the difference. Adapters made with one type of component are supposed to work well, with the other not so well.

I have no idea which components are inside my adapter.

You have the B1 which is the RealTek components. Your output showed what the device is identifying itself as. The A1 has the Ralink component. It is actually very easy to install ONCE the correct path is found, which No_Strings See Profile hopefully put you on. Good luck and post back if you run into hick-ups!

The command "lsusb" (ls is used very often in commands to mean "list" followed by what you are listing, so "list USB" is lsusb) will show you what the stuff plugged in your USB ports is identifying itself as.
