Re: Problem after I tried to run the file setup.exe
It seems your device is not compatible with 64 Bit operating systems, which you apparently have. If you are sure you do not have a 64 bit OS, then the driver may be faulty. You should be able to locate the driver at this site
If they do not list a 64-bit driver, you will need to try a differentadepter.

The only drivers for this device are for Xp and Vista. Download the appropriate bit version (32bit or 64bit) for Vista to your computer, right click on the exe installer and go to properties. Go to compatibility mode, in the drop down menu choose Vista (64 bit or 32 bit which ever version of Windows 7 you're running) and check the "run as administrator" box. Apply the changes and hit the Okay button. Then click on the exe and let it run. If that doesn't work, use 7zip (it's free) and unpack the exe file into a folder. Go to control panel device manager find the wireless card in the "others" section it should have a yellow question mark next to it. Right click that or click once and hit the properties button, go to driver, and choose update driver. A window will pop up that asks if you want to check automatically or do it manually. Choose manually and point the new window to where you unzipped the exe, hit okay and let it "search" it should find the drivers and install them. A note: vista drivers have issues running in windows 7. The card itself is old and outdated and I'd suggest getting a different one. You can find the driver at the link below.

You aren't very descriptive. Either way. I'm assuming when you say Setup, you are referring to the driver installation setup. Delete/uninstall the driver. Unplug the adapter. Now, start the setup. When the installation goes along, eventually it'll ask for you to insert the card, thats when you insert it. It should then work, if you finish the setup.
If thats not the issue. Heres a possibility. You are running windows Vista, or running Windows Vista 64 bit, or maybe XP 64 bit. Either way, you are likely using a 32 bit driver, on a 64 bit machine. Or vise versa. If not then you could be using a vista driver on an XP machine and the XP machine doesn't know what to do with it. I suggest going to dlinks website. There are 3 versions of this wireless card, and that also could be the issue.
The first one they released is here http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=DWL-G630 and that only has drivers for XP and 2000.
http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=DWL-G630_revB rev B. Also only XP and 2000.
http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=DWL-G630_revC rev C. also again XP and 2000 BUT includes a Vista 32 bit driver.
I hope i helped. Not bad for free...
