Got this cheap $8 Wireless N adapter:
Then when lsusb shows it:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 106: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
Bus 001 Device 107: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
Bus 001 Device 108: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
I can follow these instructions to install it and it's connected to my WiFi access point:
Problem is that I have to plug it in to a powered hub, not sure if this means my Pi is broken or the cheepie WiFi adapter.
Bottom line is that a RTL8188CUS should work with the Pi just run the script at the above post and it's easy as Pi!
