Question about D-Link Air DWL 520 802.11b (DWL-520) Wireless Adapter
Im running vista for my computer
first im not sure if D-Link Air DWL 520 802.11b is the exact product that i have, but mine looks very similar.
My d-link air worked fine for awhile but now it gets almost no signal from router not enough to connect to internet. I was connecting direct for a while and when i was doing this I disabled the wireless device, but i had the option of enabling it. I haven't used wireless for awhile, now i am trying to use it again, when i go into the computer and device's I don't even see the device there anymore, like its been removed somehow. i do not have installation cd anymore but that cd never worked in the first place due to having vista. I took it in where a guy choose the run program to activate the wireless device maybe something like this need to be done again. if you have any idea's that would be great
This adapter's driver is pre-installed in Vista. That means that Vista should automatically see it and install it.
Power down your computer.
take out the D-link adapter.
Power on the PC. Once you get to the desktop, check in the control panel > device manager. It should not be there.
Then power off the PC again.
insert the adapter but in a different PCI slot.
Power on the PC and Vista should see it ans set it up.
The cd would not help you because the D-link Utility does not work in Vista.
I have read the the XP drivers alone would work, But try this first.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
