While we're twiddling our thumbs who wants to help me triage Wifi Dongle

Now that I know my wifi dongle is not dead, I'd really like to figure out why my main default install of PMX Respin refuses to allow it to work with it's RealTek drivers. Some of you here may ask why am I bothering since I have several other partitions where the wifi is already working? Well mostly because with 20 some customized SSBs, it's quite a lot of work to recreate them all. They have their individual sets of addons and bookmarks... Besides, I'd really like to figure this out.
