Linux Internet Connection Problems


I just recently 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. Could anyone tell me the source of the problem and how to fix it?

Chances are there are no drivers for card in Centos. Centos is more of a server Linux distro then a desktop distro. You will need to find the drivers for the card and install them in order to get it work. Check and see if there might be a driver available for that card. If there is not I have no clue where else to look for one.
