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
