D-Link AirPlus G for Vista – driver that works

May 3rd 2007 in 3267

Since we haven’t been able to find a sparky to take care of the wiring we need done after moving office from one end of the house to the other, I decided to get a wireless USB adapter till we can locate a sparky we can trust.

Since it’s a temporary solution I didn’t want to go full out on the cost of it so bought a cheap one – the D-Link AirPlusG (DWL G122) which came in at around $60 only – could find it cheaper elsewhere but didn’t want to waste time driving around.

Since i’m running Vista Ultimate I quickly found that the shipped drivers with the adapter, wasn’t for Vista at all.

So the search went on for a driver…D-Link didn’t have one for the revision of the adapter i bought…great!! how smart is that..they had one for RevA, RevB and RevD..figure which one i bought? RevC.

Anyways, I decided to try to download the one for RevD and installed it.

The install went practically without a hitch – no mention of RevC not being supported by this driver, nor any warnings from Vista that it was an incompatible driver.

I was up and running in less than 5 minutes…how easy is that!

So for you who’s been stuck with a RevC version of the D-Link GWL G122 just download the RevD version – works a treat.

Here’s a link to the driver: http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=DWL%2DG122%5FrevD

I’ve had the devils own job with DLink drivers on Vista, but you know mate its just the early adoptor’s tax :-) I’m running some 108Mbps Netgear wireless at the mo (with good Vista drivers)

And what’s this needing a sparky? Crawling under the house with with a crimping tool and a roll of cat5 is good for character building :-)

Hey James – been a while since you’ve visited..what, we’re not good enough for you any longer?

Actually, i need a sparky for a few reasons..there is no “under the house here”..remember..Perth is one big sandbox and the slap is just smacked on top of it…

secondly, it’s electricity..i…dont…do…electricity..

learned from experience – believe me, squatting over an electrical fence, wearing a 75kg backpack and get stuck with a leg on each side..aaaannd – lets just say a man can jump REALLY high even when he’s wearing a backpack – that trick teaches you to respect mother nature at her finest real fast.

and i don’t need my character built any further – my wife’d divorce me if i evolved any further along than i am now – she’s perfectly happy with me scraping my knuckles when i walk :)

One of my own “secret” heroes, Anders Hejlsberg talks about LINQ with Charlie Calvert. For some reason, i always enjoy his enthusiasm. He’s very energetic in the way he talks and its obvious that he’s passionate about what he does. There’s a link on Charlie’s blog for the video – it’s worth downloading and having […]
