WiFi USB key

I have a brand new usb wifi adapter:

Belkin Surf USB Micro Adapter
Realtek RTL8188CE-VAU: Single-Chip IEEE 802.11b/g/n 1T1R WLAN Controller

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 050d:1102 Belkin Components

In RealTek site the drivers for other 8188 models are really the ones for
8192. I have tried with in-kernel r8192u_usb, but I think I have no luck,
I see no 'wlan0' under /sys/class/net.

I suppose it is because the module does not recognize the USB IDs in my
device. How can I force it to try without recompiling kernel ?
Is there any parameter o alias in modprobe.conf I could try ?
