DWA-130 and PC running Vista

I setup my new D-Link DWA-130 on a new eMachine running Windows Vista and it shut down after running a couple hours. When I checked device manager the error report says "Windows has stopped this devise because it has reported problems (Code 43) - It cannot load driver.
Windows has no solution for this problem.
Can anyone help me?

    Hello again all,

    Thanks for the suggestions.  I did install a Vista driver on first setup .  As I said initially everything worked for  couple hours before shutting down.  I uninstalled and reinstalled everything only to have a repeat performance of the problem... Any other thoughts?

    I have the same problem. The DWA-130 does not come back to life when the device is 'woken' up from sleep mode. Tried on WinXP, Vista & Win7 with the appropriate drivers.

DWA-130 is only a Model Number. You should check to see if your settings for your network adapters match on the PC and laptop( I assume it is connected via a cable to the D-link? ).
In order to guide you on doing this I need to know what Windows you have ( XP / Vista / Win7 ).

if a software/product is not compatible with vista, it is best not to use with vista. Either switch to xp, or buy another product which is compatible with vista. Most adpators nowawadays are compatible with vista, and i do NOT recommend buying a d-link product.

Hope this helped! ^_^ have a great day

D-Link DWA-130 running Vista

OK!! I figured it out!! Ok you need to go to the Dlink web site, cursor over to the tech support tab, on the drop down select DOWNLOADS, enter your Dlink wireless adaptor version(you'll need the box for these steps), ok now in the new window click downloads, choose and download the 130 one not the beta version, have a flash usb ready and save all downloaded files to ur usb flash, next insert your usb flash on ur laptop, open my computer select ur removable drive and double click the dlink software, after you do this it should bypass that prompt screen and you'll be able to continue your setup for your Dlink wireless adaptor.........hope it works for you cause it worked for me.....
