Should the GWU523 get hot?


Most wireless adapters will get hot during use.

Obviously the cooler it stays, the better it will operate and the longer it will last, but as long as there is adequate air flow around the device for cooling and the ambient temperature is reasonable, it should not be a problem.

Excessive heat may cause occasional loss of signal / connection or even total failure eventually, but unless the unit becomes to hot to even touch, it should continue to operate normally.

Hope that was helpful.

Belkin note bookcard isnt working


Probably need to install the software that came with the Belkin card first. Make sure the card is NOT plugged in when you install from the CD. After that, restart your computer and make sure the card is now plugged in. Also, you need to set the router and belkin card with the same settings.

Zyxel Wi Fi Card not working


Try these steps.
1) Test on a different usb slot or another pc to see if you get a light come up.
2) When plugged in do you hear a sound as if the operating system picked up a new device. Check device manager and see if there are any warning symbols in it.
If you cannot get it to light up at all or get recognised in another laptop or pc then i'd say the device is dead do other people use the card?
If it does come up but not working attempt to re-install drivers or check for the latest drivers from vendors site.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Net work cable unplug


Hi.

The fact that the router has no lights lit, (not even the power light?) this means the router is burned out or defective. You did the right thing in trying it on a different power outlet. The router is definitely dead and the only solution here is for the library to get a new one.

DWL-122 driver not installing, device not recognized


The wireless adapter will not show on the My Computer. Try to right click the My Computer icon go to properties, then go to Hardware tab then click the device manager button, click the + sign beside the Network Adapters category and check if you have the adapter listed there. If the adapter is listed check if the driver is installed properly by going to the properties of the card.

Wireless network card in PC loses connection


The best reccomendation I might make is to stop using the manufacturer's proprietary management software. Use Windows' own built in wireless management. You can select this by selecting the network adapter in the 'network connections' control panel and checking the box that says 'let windows manage this device' That should fix the problem. Also, try getting the most recent updates for both windows and the network adapter.

Wont detect any wireless networks


Go into hardware, then device manager in my computer properties or control panel and look down the list at 'network adapters'. Click the '+' sign adn check that your wreless adapter has not got a yellow!(exclamation mark) next to it, if so it's a driver error. If not right click on it then down to properties, then look in the 'device status' box, if it says code 10 it's faulty. If it says this device is working, look further down at 'Device Usage' and make sure it's enabled.
