Dlink DWA-130


Hello the other day I did a switch from Windows 8 over to Linux. Now i cannot get wifi.... I have a DLINK DWA-130 Rev. F I have tried using W.I.N.E. to install drivers from CD but it will not detect my usb DWA-130.... And in turn since it will not detect the usb i am unable to use the lsusb command to find the chipset and download a realtek driver for it.... It worked fine with windows. and i can unplug the DWA-130 plug in my LG Nexus 5 phone connected to wifi, turn on tethering and voila i have wifi out of the box.......

ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated as this is soooooo frustrating.....
