I've been having a lot of issues recently with my DWA-130 Rev.A1 on Windows 7 x64. Frequently, the network adapter would simply stop working after I reboot my computer. Then, the adapter was not recognized by the system even if I connected it to a different USB port. At that point, it usually took many other reboots and deactivating/activating the adapter multiple times to get it to work randomly for a couple more days until the same problem occurs again.
It did the same thing to me this morning. After much frustration, I tried your custom-made driver and it started working properly the first time.
I recommend this driver for any user having Windows 7 and DWA-130 Rev.A1.
It seems to be the only stable solution so far on the web.
Nice work Leonard4!
