Welcome Alimao,

From what I can tell the Dwa-140 works with the rt2870usb driver.
It is not included in VL6, you would need to compile and install it. Here are some links:

It may be necessary to blacklist the rt2800usb module to avoid conflicts.

THX a lot and for the quick reply... i will try it later and let u know if i had luck to put it working.

Vector Linux it's cool and light SO. i'll already tried a few another with no luck.

Xubuntu taked upto 9h to install on my old timer laptop. VL 6 SD taked just simple 5 houres:)

VL6 Light is not working i don't know why my screen becomes strange and i was not able to take any action with the mouse. so i installed the SD version and saw the issue with the USB drivers. :)

Sorry it didn't work for you. Kudos for the valient try, though. Keep VL in mind for the future, other hardware will probably do much better.
