hello i bought the D-Link Wireless-N 150 Easy USB Adaptor but when i got it i found the driver is for windows or mac only,i tried it on peppermint 5 but it did not work so i have had to install windows 7 for the moment.
there is a driver for linux on the d-link website but when i downloaded it i could not see auto run or setup and did not know what to click on,any ideas please on how to get it working with peppermint 5 as my signal connection is about 68% without it and about 100% with windows 7.
thank you.

With the adapter plugged in, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsusb
and
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network

It might also be useful if you can post a link to the webpage on the D-Link website with the Linux driver

Hi penrose1950.  I see that the output you returned is very long.  In future, could you please encapsulate long outputs with the Sp Spoiler function.  This is located in the forum editor, just above the crying  :'( emoticon.  It makes it much easier for people to read and keeps things neat and tidy.  This time I've done this for you.  Thanks in advance ;).

OK, try this .. open  a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
then:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/dlink-driver
then:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/dlink-driver
then:
Code: [Select]
wget http://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu/archive/master.zip
then:
Code: [Select]
unzip master.zip
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/dlink-driver/rtl8188eu-master
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
sudo make install
then
Code: [Select]
sudo depmod -a
now see if wireless springs to life when you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe 8188eu
if it does .. check it survives a reboot

Try:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r r8188eu
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe 8188eu
if that works (or not) REBOOT .. then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network

OK, run
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r r8188eu
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe 8188eu
this time don't reboot .. just post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and tell me if wireless is working or not with the D-Link adapter

[EDIT]

I'm a bit confused why you want a Nano in the first place, when you appear to have a working built in wireless adapter ?

It still seems like the D-Link isn't associated, and you're still using the built in Atheros adapter ?

it also seems like you're still using the r8188eu driver, and not the 8188eu driver.

What happens when you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r r8188eu
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe 8188eu
?
