DLink DWL-G122 Failure then unable to reinstall

I hope somone can help me with a wireless problem I am having.

I bought a DLink DWL-G122 H/W Ver:C1 a couple of weeks ago and
installed it from the supplied CD. After a bit of fiddling about, it
worked fine, and I was very happy with it.

My machine is a Sony Vaio PC running XP SP1.

However last night, I rebooted the machine, and the device was not
detected, "unrecognized USB device". The configuration utility for the
device would simply not run. No idea what has caused this.

As I thought there must be an installation problem, I uninstalled the
software using the DLink Uninstall command, rebooted the PC and tried
to reinstalled from the CD. The installation appeared to be
successful, except:

a) The device manager showed no wireless network adapter
b) when I plugged in the dongle and rebooted again, the usb device was
still unrecognised.

It seems that the drivers have not been installed properly, but I
really don't know what to do next. I checked the registry that the
uninstalled worked OK, and the install creates a directory of driver
files in its own DLINK hierarchy. It seems that these are not being
copied to the right place or something.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks

dave

Hi,
If you want to reinstall leave the card out until it is called for and
erase all the trace of this card from registry. I never had good luck
with D-link anything. I never buy D-link anthing.

It's because the USB adapter was left in the socket. Take it out and
plug it in again *after* the computer has booted.

Try doing like I wrote above. Uninstall and only plug in the adapter
after the computer has booted.

That happened to me with a second hand one,
it would not be recognised on any computer.
Had to go through Ebay long winded procedure to get most of my money back.
