Thanks lspci give nothing about usb devices.
So i have 2 solutions and i don't how to choose :
* Use prism54 driver which seems to be quiet difficult to install and
run for a newbie like me.
* Use ndiswrapper and windows driver which works (i'm connected by this
device to write this mail) but have a lot of problem of lost connection
mainly due, i think, because i run a 4K kernel and windows driver need
12K stack. So if i want ndiswrapper working better, i have to change
kernel, sourcecode and reinstalled what i used compiled (i'm not sure
but i think only nvidia driver, ndiswrapper and maybe kernel-ntfs rpm
which is built for 4k kernel ??)
Really i don't know what to choose ...
