In my previous message I forgot to mention try upgrading the firmware
from the LAN  ( I am assuming you can connect to LAN from the machine)
remove the previous firmware which I see on the forum you copied to
this directory and put the new firmware
your driver is requesting new firmware and it is not finding that in
the specified location.
Your device is rtl8192u and not rtl8172 or rtl8712 as you are trying.
you should blacklist r8192s_usb.ko (the old driver) by adding it to
Recompile the new driver (if you have a new upgraded Ubuntu ) in this
situation the kernel would have changed.

$ wget ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwa130_revC/Drivers/dwa130_revC_drivers_linux_006.zip
$ unzip dwa130_revC_drivers_linux_006.zip
$ su
# mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/firmware/RTL8192U
# cp rtl8192u_linux_2.6.0006.1031.2008/firmware/RTL8192U/*

and then re install the driver.
Give the output of
lsmod,insmod and dmesg when you insert the driver.
also have a look at this link
this has some information for your hardware.
Excerpts from above link
"The r8192s_usb driver has been dropped in favor of r8712u"
So post your question here
you will get better idea to what to do.
