SOURCE: Wireless G USB Adapter

Hello there.

As you are getting this error message the best thing to do would be install the USB adapter with the latest drivers from the DLINK website.

Please click here . The website currently says its down for maintenance but if you check back shortly it should be working normally.

Hope this helps.

Goto control panel, open up system, choose hardware, device manager, look in Network adapters to see if it shows wireless. If you dont have one in system, you can get a wireless PCI card for internal installation or you can get wireless USB from Best Buy, Circuit City etc.....either one is ok...USB is easiest to install of course.

SOURCE: change operating system

You can keep both Vista and XP. Below is the way to install XP, after Vista was already installed... creating a dual boot. First find the drivers for your network components, wireless card or nic, and save them to an external device such as a floppy disk or flash drive. Then you will need to go into the BIOS on your computer startup. Scroll to the System Configuration tab and go down to the SATA Native Support and change its setting to Disabled. Then hit F10 to Save and Exit. Next, insert your Windows XP CD and create the partition you wish to install XP on. After the installation is complete you should boot automatically into XP. Now you need to move some files. First, make sure you have set your folder options to see hidden files and to show protected operating system files. Then open Windows Explorer and go to the drive where Vista is installed. Copy the folder Boot, and the files bootmgr, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM and ntldr and paste them to the root of your XP drive. Then download Vista Boot Pro and save it to your desktop or somewhere else that you can easily access. Unless you already have .Net Framework (v2.0 at least) it will redirect you to a Microsoft page where you can download this necessary component. Install and run Vista Boot Pro and open the "Bootloader" tab. Select "Reinstall the Vista bootloader" and press Apply. Then go to the Manage OS Entries tab and select "Add new operating system entry" and make sure you select "Windows Legacy". Give the new entry a name (ie: Windows XP) and select the drive letter you have XP on and then select Apply. You can also choose which entry you would like as the default the system will boot to. And now you should be able to dual boot between Vista and a previous OS. Thank you! Sabharish

Hello my tv expert can't work in window 7 what can i do?


The thing that you can try is to run it in Vista compatibility.

Try to locate the exe file from where the program runs. Then right click on it and go to properties. Then go to the compatibility tab. There you would find a check box to run it in compatibility, just select Windows Vista from the list. Apply the settings and try again.

Hope this works!

Wireless problem


Hello router_lost

I believe you are correct in your assessment that the issue is related to your router. Likely, that issue involves configuration - of your router and/or your laptop computer.

(01) Is the computer that is running Vista connecting to the Internet (via the router) using a wireless network adapter or a wired network adapter?

(02) Assuming that the Vista computer is connecting to the Internet wirelessly, please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and version of your router.

If the Vista computer is connecting "wired" and not "wirelessly" AND you have no other devices on your LAN (home network) that are successfully connecting to the Internet wirelessly through this router, then, it's possible that the router's radio is not enabled. However, if the laptop is "seeing" your router, then, of course, that isn't the case.

(03) Are you sure you are attempting to connect to the correct wireless router from your laptop?

I've seen it quite often where users will think they're connecting (or trying to connect) through their own router when, in fact, the router is a neighbor's (not their own).

(06) You can avoid this possibility by assigning an unique SSID to your wireless radio. In other words, change the SSID (wireless router's "name") to something other than the manufacturer's default SSID. (e.g. Netgear's default is "netgear" and Linksys's default SSID is "linksys", etc.)

It's best, for security purposes, not to assign a revealing SSID (e.g. "TheSmiths" or "2201YourStreetName", etc). Call it "BlueMoon" or whatever you like. Just something unique yet not revealing of your identity or location.

(07) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and revision of your router.

(08) Please, tell us the manufacturer, model number and serial number (or service tag) of your laptop computer.

(09) Please, tell us the operating system that is running on your laptop computer.

W/ this information, we'll be able to provide you with specific instructions for correcting your laptop's connectivity problem at home.

(10) Do you know if you have WEP or WPA encryption enabled on the router?

If you do, then you will need to enter either the router's wireless encryption "password phrase" or the hexadecimal key code password in order for the laptop to be allowed to access the Internet. You should only have to do this one time - then your computer will save the information.

If you've been connecting to free networks fine, then you've likely not been required to enter a password phrase or key in order to connect.

Please, post back here w/ answers to the questions I've asked here along with any other questions, comments, and observations you might have. We'll continue to work w/ you on this issue until it's resolved.

Thank you

Dg 834g router


is this a wireless network?

are you trying to retrieve SECURITY codes, or just basic network settings?

your best bet is probably to log into the router, from the vista laptop, rather than looking at the settings the vista laptop is currently using...

on the vista laptop, open a webbrowser, and type in the ip address for your router.

that is PROBABLY 192.168.0.1

the username is PROBABLY admin
the password is PROBABLY "password"

from there, if you click on wireless settings, it should show you all the details you need.

did the people who set this network up for you leave any information about username, password, ip addresses, anything like that?

You just check it out that on your computer sound drivers are properly loaded or not.
