    Cool D-Link DWA-130 wireless adapter-HELP


    I am very to new to Linux Ubuntu and so far like it very much. I would like to connect to the Internet through my Netgear wireless modem. I was using a D-Link DWA-130 wireless adapter when I ran windows on this computer. With Ubuntu it does not work, nor does the computer even recognize that the adapter is plugged into the USB port.
    I have an HP slimline desktop with an AMD Athlon II X2 250 processor
    Can anyone help me get this hooked up and working?

    @TBoB

    The thread

    Just helping.

    @ Original Poster. Just open a terminal and paste in

    Code:
    wget http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian-backports//pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-realtek_0.27~bpo50+1_all.deb
    Close terminal. Go into /home and left click on .deb and open with Gdebi. Then reboot and see if wireless can be enabled in Network Manager.

    Open terminal and try

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove -purge firmware-realtek
    or do a search in synaptic and search for firmware-realtek and uninstall using synaptic.

    If nothing shows. Then installation failed and it is not installed.

    sudo apt-get remove -purge firmware-realtek
    after pasting or typing this in terminal. try hitting the tab key to see if it adds any lines. Tab key auto-completes commands sometimes in terminal.

    I'm surprised but sorry it did not work out for you as the post is dated FEB 28,2011. Thought it was recent enough.

    I've only been able to get mine working with NDISWrapper. Which should be installed already because the module is loaded.
    Did you try using the system menu and looking for the drivers through there? I don't have Ubuntu but it's something like Restricted drivers.

    EDIT: The rtl8192u driver is still in kernel staging as of 2.6.38-gentoo-r2...hopefully they get it fixed sooner rather than later.
