Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1385:5f01 Netgear, Inc WPN111 (no firmware)If you have the above device or a usb wifi dongle that requires ar5523 driver, you can try the commands and packages I've documented in order to make it work.
The weird thing with this device is that the firmware adds +1 to its ID. If you look at the code (SVN repository), you'll see that it's registered as "1385:5f00".
How to install the device driver
1. Install this package, depending on the version of ubuntu you may have:
- 12.04 (precise pangolin): https://launchpad.net/~medigeek/+archive/experimental/+files/ar5523-source_0%7Eslh.12%7Eppap1_all.deb
- 11.10 (oneiric ocelot): https://launchpad.net/~medigeek/+archive/experimental/+files/ar5523-source_0%7Eslh.12%7Eppao1_all.deb
- 11.04 (natty narwhal): https://launchpad.net/~medigeek/+archive/experimental/+files/ar5523-source_0%7Eslh.12%7Eppan1_all.deb
2. Execute the following commands, copy-paste them one by one:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic module-assistant sudo m-a a-i ar5523-source wget http://verein.lst.de/~hch/ar5523.tgz tar xvf ar5523.tgz ar5523/uath-ar5523.bin --strip 1 sudo mv uath-ar5523.bin /lib/firmware
3. Restart your computer and replug your usb dongle. Hopefully it works. :)
I have the same problem - how to install ar5523 into raspberry pi debian wheezy.
I followed instructions which are similar for ubuntu but did not work for me.
can you list the instructions on how to install ar5523 in debian wheezy I followed this link wiki.debian.org/ar5523#wheezy but it failed. contact email firstname.lastname@example.org

You could file a bug about it: https://github.com/asb/spindle/issues
But don't get your hopes up, because a lot of people complained about this usb dongle not working correctly with linux. I would suggest buying a new one.
