My favorite is to use UBUNTU. Here's a duckduckgo on how I do this.
Now that I can do this with a LiveCD of UBUNTU I take note of those device IDs and then use Duckduckgo or google to find the maker of these things.
But it begs the question where these came from.
I received three USB WiFi units with no drivers. There is no markings on the outside to indicate who the MFG or what the model No. Is. Is there a way to obtain this information?
