The model on this thing is ED-1296. I believe its Ralink chipset.

Does anyone know if this can be setup w/ antiX and how I should go about it?

Nothing is plugged into my usb right now so I won't get a device readout. Plug in your wireless usb and run the command just like I did in this post. # shows I am root user in terminal which lsusb may need to run.

Edit: Walked out to my Motorcycle shop. Unplugged my wireless usb from Frankenstein Desktop IBM M41.

With USB plugged in to this laptop readout.
