Question Connection problem

I have installed CentOS 6.3 on my secondary hard drive. I am using a USB D-Link Wireless Model No. DWA-130 Adapter to wirelessly connect to the internet. On my primary drive Windows 7 Pro 64-bit is intalled. There is an internet connection on the Windows drive but not on the CentOS one. Would you tell me the source of the problem and how to fix it?

Thanks you

Make sure you see the device by running lspci from a terminal prompt. Post the output here if you're not sure what you're looking for.

Also the output of perhaps ifconfig -a might help if it is being recognized but just not configured.

What network connectivity method you had chose when you had installed CentOS - DHCP or manual?

What you've tried to access Internet on Secondary H/D i.e. CentOS? Just share it, so people could suggest you some way.
