chipset?

See if you can discover the chipset inside.

After some research on the web, I came to realize there are two basic catagories of USB-To-Ethernet adaptors:

1. USB 1.1 devices that use a Pegasus driver.
2. USB 2.0 devices that use a AX8817x driver
(or its successor, the AX88772 which appeared around Aug-2005).

If it's one of those you can get the driver at this page

The chipset has a Heatsink Soldered onto it

The chipset has a Heatsink Soldered onto it - And i dont have the real guts of desoldering it - In risk of frying any components. But none of those drivers seem to work. Under Networks in Prefrences there is no "wireless" and when i go down to add - There is 6 to 4 and Built In Ethernet.

Thanks anyway.

http://www.arcadyan.com/Products/Data_Networking.htm - according to that the chipset is a WN4501G 1 (Conexant Cohiba)

PRISM54 chipset (I think)

googling USR5422 chipset produced a number of references, a cursory scroll through a couple of them leads me to believe your adapter has a Conexant PRISM54 chipset. You'll have to take it from here as I have no idea where to find a MacOS PRISM54 driver.

Edit: I could be wrong, I see the post right before mine suggests it's a Cohiba chipset . . . :?
