- Unzip the archive.
- Go to \20141224_DWA-525_v1.23S0037\Drivers\WinXPx86_Win2K\ folder.
- Copy Drt2860.cat to %SystemRoot%\system32\CatRoot\, Drt2860.inf to %SystemRoot%\inf\, DRT2860.sys to %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\, RaCoInst.dat and RaCoInst.dll to %SystemRoot%\system32\ directories accordingly.
- Open Device Manager and select "Network Controller" from device list. Install the driver by selecting automatic installation. It will install the driver previously copied in step 3.
- Finally reboot the system.
After installing the driver and reboot, I tried to connect to my wi-fi network. After typing wlanconf -s in Command Prompt, it finds environing networks correctly, but when trying to connect via wlanconf -c <SSID> -w <WEP_KEY>, I get two errors. The first error is ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER, it appears in case if wep key is less than twelve characters. Second error - ERROR_NOT_READY, appears if wep key has twelve or more characters.
I find some lines in debug log which probably indicates a problem:
Looks like a problem in ndisuio.sys driver.
Tested on a PC with Asus A7V8X-X motherboard and wlan adapter connected.
