Now i realy need help to setup my USB STICK WIFI D-LINK DWA 140

Maybe you could start by telling us what guides or tutorials you have tried to follow and where things went wrong. Also can you please tell us the distro you are using (from your profile it seems to be fedora, but confirmation and a version number could help)?
