    I regret I have never ever managed to get a wireless adaptor card to work, but people say it is possible, and I suggest you start by reading this article

    Here's a link to a pretty good site to wireless driver information. This ain't gonna be simple. Note this is for rev_A2.

    http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/D-Link_DWA-525_rev_A2

    If you want to develop knowledge, you can work to get your internal card working. If you just want your wireless to work, you might consider a nano USB adapter that is known to work. I'm using one of these on a Thinkpad with a built-in G speed Wifi:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

    with the realtek driver. The driver that comes integral with Ubuntu recognizes the adapter but will not connect. The driver from Realtek includes an install script that seems quite reliable, you just have to know how to run a bash script.

    Upon further research, you might have another alternative. I looked at Dlink's drivers. There are Windows drivers that include .cat .inf & .sys files in the drivers folder. You could download these and try using NDISwrapper. The software center should have it and the GUI front-end. If you're using 32 bit Ubuntu you'd need 32 bit WindowsXP/2K drivers, Ubuntu64 needs 64 bit WinXP drivers. Win Vista/Win7 drivers generally don't work. You're fortunate that Dlink uses this driver style; many vendors just give an .exe file which will not work with NDIS wrapper. I'm not a fan of NDISwapper; if it doesn't work I've had it mess up an install big-time but at least Dlink has the correct Windows driver format to be able to use it.

    indeed, it is the A2 version that's why its bothering so much, i will try the cross-install with the windows drivers and see if its work, the thing is ,the Desktop am using is for the department and they are all using this wi-fi adapter on win 7, i installed Linux because i need it to make NS2 work properly and do some simulations (am doing some research on WSN)
    thanks i will let you know how it goes.

    Unfortunately ,i've tried the ndiswrapper command to install the driver from the inf file for windows. but that was unsuccessful.
    the driver has been installed correctly but when you list to see if its working , an error message tells you that its not the correct driver! when i just copied the files from the Driver-Disk.
    guess i have to find a usb modem stick to use until i find a solution

    That is in part why I'm not much of a fan of NDISwrapper. Do you know if the drivers on the CD are 32 bit or 64 bit? As far as I know, if you have 64 bit Linux you must use 64 bit Windows drivers with NDISwapper. I wonder if the drivers on the CD were 32 bit and you have 64 bit? Other than that, I'm pretty hopeless with NDISwrapper.

    Also, the output of ifconfig and route -n should be helpful.
