Are you sure it is LG?

Google returns Mediatek Ralink RT2570 USB (RT257x/ RT2671/ RT520x) - MediaTek
see if this helps

I wonder if this needs the drivers installed prior to being attached. Does the CD has an setup/installer?

If yes, try
- uninstall drivers from device manager
- remove the device
- restart PC
- run the setup
- attach device when it asks or after setup finish
