The DX-WGDTC adapter is not compatible with Windows Vista. It was designed to work with Windows 98 through Windows XP. However, you can try to use it with a Windows Vista system. What will happen a lot of times is that the router will provide basic functionality but it may display some quirks, or it may drop the connection occasionally.
You can get a decent Wireless-G adapter for $30 or so, so you're probably better off just buying a Vista-compatible adapter, but if you already have this one, might as well see if it will work!
Windows WiFi Fix, Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected. Windows XP: Click Start Right click on My Computer When a window pops up click on properties Click on the Hardware tab Click Device Manager Click the [+] next to Network Adapters Find your wireless card and right click on it. Click Disable Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning. Continue disabling the device. Wait 30 seconds or so. Right click on your wireless again and click Enable. Exit the device manager. Reconnect to your router. You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Sorry to say but this adapter don't have a driver for windows Vista so the chance that it will work with it is very small, the possibility that this device has a built in driver on vista is also a small chance so its safe to say it wont work with vista...
The problem isn't your scanner or Vista, it's your adapter. Power requirements and speed of data require special adapters. One I always recommend is Scan Technology's part # STI-PS2-USB. I've tested it with all Metrologic scanners and it hasn't failed yet.
I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me: 1.Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window. 2.Click ‘Device Manager’ 3.Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’ 4.Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’. 5.Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’ 6.Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’ 7.Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next
This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!

yes U R right. this is most probably a "Driver" problem.
You could try installing the software in "Administrator Mode".. with "Compatability Mode" set for XP.
If this doesn't work.. then ya may have to try to contact the manufacturer and ask for a compatable driver for Vista.
