You might need to uninstall the product first, then install it again.
Remember to key in the correct SSID (network name) and the passphrase(or password) of the d link router you want to connect to.

Then choose the wap2 or wap security coz dlink supports them both.
Then it should be ok.

And one more thing! Disable the othere drivers when using the dlink n range booster. They might cause some complications.

To disable: go to control panel>device manager>network adapters,

then right click the other adapters except for the dlink adapters.

It should be ok now.

Limited connectivity


Limited connectivity (this phrase occurs first inside the WIN 8 OS) means, that you have connection with your router already, but NOT to the internet. Pls. check, if you have access to internet from other computers or smartphone connected via the same router.
If so, sometimes a driver-update for your D-Link could be useful.
Check also, if other wireless adapters are working with the same frequency, this may disturb. Try to change the channel or change from 2,4 GHz to the 5 GHz Channels, if the router & your D-Link Adapter will support this.
I had the same problem with my WIN 8 - PC and I had to change the (wireless) radio-channel.

I have a full signal on my pc via DIR-412 but no internet connection


Hello,

Is this the first time you set your router? Make sure that the cable from your modem to your router is connected properly. You can also try connecting the modem directly into your PC just to make sure your modem is connected to the internet. If it is working without the router, reset your router then connect the modem again to your router.

Cannot aquire ip address from wireless router


Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it. Good Luck.

NETGEAR Wireless G USB Adaptor Problems


I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<" yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)

D-Link wireless router and Belkin Wireless G USB Network adapter


Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
