D-Link USB Wireless N 300 Mbps DWA-131

Today I bought this nano USB wireless adapter,  I was planning to use it to replace the wireless card (that still works) of this very old Gateway laptop.

So far I failed and probably will not succeed 'cause this doesn't seem to work with Debian despite I found that this "revision" seems to work with Ubuntu, which is frustrating 'cause that's not the distro I want to use.

Frustation Level:  Like the old times when you had a "winmodem" and couldn't make it work.
