Hope you can help.
I have purchased a dlink usb adaptor revision c which will not link to my computer. I have a 6 year old standard computer with XP and updated to present with no fancy additions.
I have used the bundled disk and tried the online driver which have the same results. When the driver asks me to plug in the adaptor it is not recognised (I have tried several usb ports which all work with other stuff). The windows hardware wizard (which the driver says ignore and cancel, but this might be relevant) notices the adaptor, recognises it as dlink etc when driver installed, and 802.11 something or other when not, but says there was a problem with installation and 'the data is not valid'.
I have tried support but without luck, oh and i have also changed the adaptor at pc world with the same results.
I hate wires running up the stairs and landing and my cats are mental. Hope you can help
the message reads 'there was a problem installing this hardware: 802.11.bg WLAN An error occurred during the installation of this device: the data is invalid'. I am then politely asked to click 'finish' and a litle box on the bottom left of the screen says that the install wizard had a problem installing this hardware and it may not work correctly.
Thanks for your time

This is the download link for the Dlink DWL-G122 wireless adapter, however you will first have to pick your revision version from the list, this revision number will be on a sticker on the usb adapter, simply chose the right revision version and you will see the download link. Once you have it downloaded, unplug the wireless adapter, install the driver then after it is done, or when prompted by the driver install, plug the device back in
hope this was helpful
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.....
It depends on your computer and your operating system, but generally if you have USB ports with a Windows-based machine, then you can use a USB ethernet adapter. You plug the adaptor into your USB port, then the ethernet cable into the adapter.
Almost any electronics supply store ie Circuit City, Best Buy, plus Walmart and other big discount stores carry USB Ethernet Adapters. You can also try your local mom 'n' pop computer supply store.
You didn?t mention which revision adaptor you had or what operating system you needed drivers for but Rev A supports Windows XP, ME, 2000 and 98; Rev B supports Win XP, 2000 and 98. Click on the link below and select the rev A or B link then download your driver(s).
