Question about Computers & Internet
You could stick it into a USB PC-Card adapter instead.
Otherwise, it sounds like the connector's shot and you'd have to find a replacement and desolder the old one to put the new one in. If you want to just fake a fix you can use a needlenose pliers or narrow spatula forceps to bend the USB shield to grab better, or stick some dense foam where it can do good holding your USB WiFi adapter so its connection is solid (e.g. superglue a sleeve of it to the back of an old laptop.)
