FRITZ!WLan Stick n v2 "not" working

I have a FRITZ!WLan Stick n v2. It is working sometimes, but then it disconnects (the wireless menu dissapears from the network menu and then appears again). I searched on the internet and found out that this has to do with the stick recognized as a cd-rom due to the windows drivers on it.

How can I fix this issue?
Thanks for all help :slight_smile:

Here the inxi-output (i only took a photo from the output; if there are any questions, please ask):

Welcome to Manjaro! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  1. Please read the information behind this link. It will help you to post necessary information. [HowTo] Provide System Information
  2. Please press the three dots … below your post and then press the :pencil2:
  • If you give us information about your system, we can see what we’re talking about and make better suggestions.
  • You can do this by using inxi in a terminal or in console.
inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width

(while the stick is pluged in)

  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command
  • Presenting the information in this way allows everyone to be familiar with the format and quickly find the items they need without missing anything.
  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.
  • To make it more readable, add 3 backticks ``` on an extra line before and after the pasted text.
    (Wisdom lies in reading :wink: )
