Question about D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

Using G630 but get "network cable unplugged" message

I have the DLink G630 C2 with latest drivers installed on Windows 2000. It used to work then all of a sudden it stopped working upon starting the computer and would just place a computer icon in the tray with a red X through it and when you hold the mouse over the icon it says "network cable unplugged". I've uninstalled the Dlink and all software and tried reinstalling it, no luck. My ethernet card (Kingston) works fine and both the Dlink and the Kingston used to work at the same time when each was in its respective slot. I've tried uninstalling the Kingston then reinstalling the DLink and software but no luck. I have tried switching slots, no luck. Any help would be appreciate. I'm relatively new at this so please keep it simple! :-)

    To responsed to the previous suggestion. I have tried my Dlink and Kingston independently. The Kingston (wired) works fine. It is then disabled and I try the Dlink (wireless). The WIRELESS (emphasis added not shouting) once installed with drivers etc. according to instructions is the one that shows up with a computer icon with a red X through it in the tray, that says "Local Area Connection # network cable unplugged" when the mouse is held over the icon. When I go to Open Network Connections and look at the connections there for the LAN connection specified in the tray message, under Device Name is listed Dlink DWL-G9630 Airplus Wireless Cardbus Adapter and under Status it says "network cable unplugged".

    Now I know that "network cable unplugged" does not seem to logically refer to a wirelss adapter, but however it does. Hence why I am as are others baffled by this problem.

I am having the same problem i have a wireless card that says network cable unplugged
now i do have two network card (both disables) and then the 2 wire wireless adaptor
it is driving me insane simply because it makes no sense the driver was downloaded directy from two wire (whos customer service compares to a car sales man helping you get a car for more money at another dealership)
yeah they make no sense at all
their download link sends me to their home page where you chase your tail time after time!!!

I'm having the exact same problem with my Zyair B-100 PCMCIA card. I install the drivers, ones I got from , and it just adds a LAN icon in the taskbar, in addition to the LAN card I already have. In Network Connections, it adds Local Area Connection # Network Cable Unplugged. Yet in "Connect using..." in the properties of the connection, it shows "ZyAIR 100 Wireless PCMCIA". The LAN connection works fine, and I have another PCMCIA card that works as well (Cnet). It just happens with this particular card. I don't know, I'm starting to wonder if it's a hardware problem...

A little confusing this, it would not say 'Network cable unplugged' if windows was refering to your D-link wireless connection(It's wireless) The cable unplugged should be refering to your Wired Ethernet card, so there must be no cable connected at one or other end. You don't mention anything about what the wireless card is trying to connect to(eg Wireless modem/router or another wireless PC). Maybe your pc is getting confused as to whether you wish to connect wirelessly or wired, as it can only work through one IP Address at a time. i could be wrong, but you probably thought that they were working but only one was, you really need to explain why you are using both wired and wireless and what is connected to what, Please reply and hopefully it'll get sorted

This one?

You will have to use the Dlink software if this is going to work at all. I'm not at all certain this model is compatible with Windows 2000 as the documentation only refers to Windows XP because it requires the Wireless Zero Configuration service which was not included in Windows 2000.

Setup is unable to detect card however windows

You aren't very descriptive. Either way. I'm assuming when you say Setup, you are referring to the driver installation setup. Delete/uninstall the driver. Unplug the adapter. Now, start the setup. When the installation goes along, eventually it'll ask for you to insert the card, thats when you insert it. It should then work, if you finish the setup. If thats not the issue. Heres a possibility. You are running windows Vista, or running Windows Vista 64 bit, or maybe XP 64 bit. Either way, you are likely using a 32 bit driver, on a 64 bit machine. Or vise versa. If not then you could be using a vista driver on an XP machine and the XP machine doesn't know what to do with it. I suggest going to dlinks website. There are 3 versions of this wireless card, and that also could be the issue. The first one they released is here and that only has drivers for XP and 2000. rev B. Also only XP and 2000. rev C. also again XP and 2000 BUT includes a Vista 32 bit driver. I hope i helped. Not bad for free...

Connecting an adapter to laptop running linux

Yes/No. Dlink has no support for Linux. Ubuntu should install generic drivers but it may work or just epic fail.

Connecting to wireless network


Offhand, I am getting the impression that either way (static or auto), the AP is the one responsible for disconnecting or refusing you. One reason is that you do not have permission to join the network or there is a security key that you need to be able to access.

A couple of clarifying queries pls:
1. Which configuration utility are you using for the G630, D-Links or Windows built-in?
2. Which security method is the "sons dlink 1310 wpa network" using WEP, WPA or MAC filter?
3. Have you tried different hardware configuration/settings for the 630 such as Auto Power Save, Power Management, Authentication Algorithm, Passive Scan Dwell Time, others?
4. Can you access the webbased interface config utility of the 1310 router?

Pls post back and then we can start figuring things out.

Good luck and kind regards.
