    D-Link DWL-120 Wireless Network Adapter

    Hey all,

    I have a D-Link DWL-120 Wireless Network Adapter (802.11b) that I got dirt cheap along with a Netgear MR314 Wireless Router. The setup works perfect, but in Windoze. I have tried to find drivers for it, but the install never seems to work (tried about 2-3 different sets, but to no avail). I was just wondering if anyone else has attempted this, or am I just gonna give up (for now ).

    D-Link DWL-120 (not working )

    Not like all this matters, but I just decided to add it all just for fun!!!

    Joe I have never had good luck with D-Link crap, I used to personally have one of their hubs (which sucked - it was super loud/unreliable) and at work the guy who I used to work for ordered 10 of their NIC cards which we never did get to work - not even the wireless ones...

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.

    There are a number of wireless drivers for linux, which works good or not so good depending on your adapter. I don't know which one D-Link adapters requires, though.
    There are, of course, the orinoco driver included in the kernel, and then there's the driver from the folks at There is also the spectrum24t driver (I think it's celled that, I don't remember where to get it, though). For my Intel 2011B adapter I have to use Pavel Roskin's orinoco extension, since the card has no on-board firmware. That you can get from I think it should work for almost all Spectrum 24 Intersil 2.5-based adapters (all of them, almost), since it requires no firmware, but I haven't tried.

    Btw., my computer is better than yours! Haha!
