Based on (in portuguese): http://www.vivaolinux.com.br/topico/Debian/Dlink-DWA-125-1

1. Install the packages madwifi-ng-tools, wireless-tools, wpa_supplicant
For package wpa_supplicant enable madwifi as use flag

2. Download de linux driver in ftp://www.dlinkla.com/pub/drivers/DWA-125/
Extract the file for a local folder, for example using:
Code:
tar -xzvf <path to the file>


3. Install the driver
As root, enter the folder extracted an run:
Code:
make
make install

4. Plug the adpater on USB
Verify if the module rt3070sta (or similar) is loaded, with command:
Code:
lsmod | grep rt


5. Restart dbus
Code:
/etc/init.d/dbus restart


6. Edit /etc/conf.d/net
This is my example (using wpa):
Code:
modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
wpa_supplicant_ra0="-Dwext"
config_ra0=( "dhcpcd" )


7. Create or edit /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
This is my example:
Code:
update_config=1
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ap_scan=1
network={
    ssid="YOURNETWORKNAME"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    psk="YOURPASSPHRASE"
    priority=5
}


8. Create the service net.ra0 with command:
Code:
ln -s net.lo /etc/init.d/net.ra0


9. Start the service and get connected with:
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.ra0 start


10. Setting the connection to start at boot
Edit the line below in file /etc/conf.d/rc
Code:
RC_PLUG_SERVICES="!net.eth* net.ra0"
# Option !net.eth* avoid other network adapters to start - use wisely
# Option net.ra0 start the adpator at boot, initiating connection

I downloaded 2011_0107_RT3070_RT3370_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.1_DPO from the RT site

I had to add one step to get it to load the module (rt3070sta)



add:

Code:
MODULE_LICENSE("GPL");


to 2011_0107_RT3070_RT3370_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.1_DPO/os/linux/usb_main_dev.c

If I didn't, I got:
Code:
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_alloc_urb (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_free_urb (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_alloc_coherent (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_register_driver (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_put_dev (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_get_dev (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_submit_urb (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_free_coherent (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_control_msg (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_deregister (err 0)
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_kill_urb (err 0)


whenever I tried to load the module.
