Yes "hwinfo" gives me lots of info.  None make any reference to a 
wireless adaptor.  However I did learn a number of things that I had no 
idea about.  Things like who actually made the mainboard and that the 
CPU could/should be running at 3.2Ghz.

I much appreciate your help in trying to identify and get this wireless 
adaptor working, but I'm struggling at the moment trying to cope with 
ill health, work, and other problems.  I don't wish to appear 
ungrateful, but everything is working well.  Having wireless 
connectivity isn't too important at the moment.

Thank you for your valued input.
