Need cd for my wireless adapter

DWL G510 where can I possibly find a cd to reinstall this. I tried copying from the internet, just the driver but the conversion didn't go so well. I have an online MAC and I want to continue using my PC but can't install the wireless card.
Any suggestions?

    Care to explain?

    Did the drivers not work or were you not able to unzip them.

    It could be that the old drver is corrupt and the system is still holding onto them.

    I just want to make sure - what operating system are you using?

    If it is XP or Vista, try this - right click on My Computer, select Manage and then select Device Manager from the list on the left.

    On the right, click on the + sign next to Network Adapters and it will expand out to show the adapters that are recognized. Right click on the DWL G510 and uninstall it. If it asks to if you want to delete the driver say yes. Remove the DWL G510, reboot the system and reinstall.

    If you cannot see the DWL G510 under network adapters either the adapter has gone bad or there is a problem with the slot in your computer because even if the wrong driver is installed or none at all, it will show up as a unknown device.

    While in Device Manager please make note of any devices that have a yellow warning sign next to them.

    Please wait until we are finished to rate because at my level a Thanks for Trying or even a Helpful actually drives my rating average down.

I sugest you install SP3 because it has fixes some security bugs in Windows XP.
SP3 is very large, you maybe able to get your computer savy friends or friendly computer shop to help you, they most likely have SP3 on a CD.

Is there any driver for linux for this product-DWL-G510 Wireless G Desktop Adapter......?if so do i get its source code?

A quick Google search suggests that there are at least three different versions of the DWL-G510 and that Rev B might work with the madwifi drivers. Otherwise, you may want to consider using ndiswrapper with the Windows drivers. I've had good luck with ndiswrapper.
