Hi Steve. I never use one of this cards. But at least the 3 models i use 
before work out of the box.

Do you see your syslog?
1. Open a terminal
2. $tail -f /var/log/syslog
3. Connect your dongle
4. See the output on syslog
5. Post those lines

Witch chipset have this dongle?
$lspci -vv | grep -EiA12 wireless

Post the result of the command:
$ifconfig -a

Best regards.
