Guys, I've gotten ahold of a AWUS036H.
It works with Windows, however, on Linux, I get errors.
I enabled Realtek PHYs, enabled RTL8187 module, and plugged it in.
RTL8187 is a module, upon modprobing it, and then plugging in the device, I get some strange behaviour.
lsusb hangs for a while, while reading the card info.
Sometimes I get a "wireless switch is off" however I have no hardware switch to turn it on/off.
Other times it hangs and start getting random disconnects from the USB port.
USB port is using xhci module.

What could be going on?

EDIT: If I plug into another windows host, and then unplug it and take it back to a linux host, it somewhat works..

I Place the information for completing the post, however, it somehow fixed itself after I used it for a long while in the windows host..
