D-link dwa-130 wirless

Having trouble with my d-link dwa-130 not getting good connection

I think i have a similar problem. I dont have much trouble getting the device to connect to my linksys wireless n router but i do notice it seems to have a variable connection strength even over a short distance. that aside, i started having trouble with my audio (turns out to be not just audio, but system speed entirely) skipping at random intervals. As i started troubleshooting i found everything seemed to work quite smoothly with the dwa-130 disconnected. further troubleshooting found me a Internet connection gateway that connects only when the dwa-130 is connected. I cant disable it or delete it. i dont need a gateway, the internet comes directly from my router ... is this something standard for USB wireless adapters?

Note that when i attempt to disable the gateway I always get sluggish response from the PC in all applications (audio skips etc).

Also when i try to connect to a shared network folder i get a different sluggish response. this is a much greater slowdown causing programs to become non-responsive and audio to stop all together for long periods until the folder eventually connects.

I just downloaded the beta drivers from d-link's website ... im going to try those.

I'm having this same problem. Will it connect to any other network? I've tried going into the settings on the network and changing the channel and a bunch of other settings. I've tried 2 different revisions of this same product. I'm starting to think it must be something in Window's that's interfering with my wireless card. I'll keep you posted if I figure anything out.

I need an install disk for my usb wireless adapter. I lost my disk.

OK... Just download the driver/software revision matching your USB adapter (have a look on it's sticker. If no revision is noted, then it's simply DWA-130!):
