Either the used 125 model I bought doesn't work or it's newer firmware (1.50) doesn't work with my computer.

 

Not sure which it is, but so far I get nothing out of it....

 

I'll test it in some other machines but assuming it DOES work in the other computers is there a way I can substitute it's current 1.50 firmware with the 1.40 firmware (which works in my Dell XP/Tahrpuppy 6.0 linux.

 

Thanks

 

D-link has both versions of the firmware avb to download.

That is not firmware but simply the driver for the adapter. Firmware is software copied to a hardware chip. Regarding your question, yes, you can download and install driver version 1.4 instead of 1.5 if that works for you.
