    You can download new drivers here
    http://support.dlink.com/downloads/

    this is the readme from the drivers, ignore the cd or floppy statements, just unzip the drivers to a folder on your desktop and then when prompted browse to it.

    Also it does have an install.exe file if you choose to do it that way
