I am running Rasbian Wheezy also and have Xarchiver. I did not know that it was an unzip type program. I will give it a try and do some reading. I will get back to you....especially if I have some success.

Â I'm not sure what distro you are running but I am running Rasbian Wheezy and it comes with "Xarchiver" that is a zip / unzip program that opens the .tar.gz files I just clicked on the file and it automaticly opend in Xarchiver then there is abunch of files there. There is aÂ read me text file that has the instilation procedure but it wasen't real clear to me. Like I said earler it seamed beond my present Linux experence. If you don't have Xarchiver you should be able to do a apt-get and find it and get it installed. Maybe the install instructions makes more sence to you than it dose me.

the setup guide it says to install the drivers before you plug in the adaptor
but the included drivers are for windows or MAC you have to go to D-Link's web
site to get the Linux drives. I wen't and downloaded the drivers but I think the
instalation instructions assumes the user has more Linux
than I have. I opened wicd and it was able to see my wirless router but when I
clicked connect it failed. Also when I logged into the router it sees the
Raspberry an has given it an I.P address. There is a help section on the company
web site that says to push the button on the end of the adaptor then push the
wps button on the router but I haven't tryed that yet if that dosen't work I
will contact the help center to see if they can help me get the drivers
installed. If one of us gets it working we should write it up and post it to the

No I have not contacted D-Link support. The information that
came with the adapter only had information on how to setup with Window or Apple,
I figure if they had a fix for Linux, it would have been included in their
literature. I also have installed wicd but do not know how to proceed. Nothing
happens when I plug it into a USB port other than it flashing on and off! I know
that the Pi knows it there because when I run lsusb, the system sees it. Good
luck and let me know if you have any success.
