Question about D-Link DGL-3420 Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Limited or no connectivity

I bought this wireless adapter to go with my new d-link router because I thought they would work well together. However I did buy the adapter from an auction site online. I had to buy my own power adapter for it. Once I plugged it in the LED lights came on and it looks like it is all set. However when I connect it to the computer it says there is limited or no connectivity. I changed the IP address of the computer to 192.168.0.xxx and it still will not connect. I'm at the end of my rope with this thing. I can't even connect to the adapter itself through the 192.168.0.30 IP address. Anyone have any ideas?

You probably need tp port forward the adapter to the router. Port foward.com can walk you through this with your model of router.Remember your computer plugs to the router not the adapter

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.

GENERAL ROUTERS RESETING 1-With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset.
2-Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.
3-The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.
Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults

This can occur when the wireless adapter in the computer has trouble connecting to the wireless router. It may not get an IP address from the router or the wireless adapter encryption setting didn't get an the encryption authentication from the router.
In this case right click on the wireless adapter on the Task bar and click Repair. This will make the router re-issue an IP address and authenticate the adapter's encryption setting.

if youve changed the password on the router since the other computers logged onto the network, then you need to delete the network history from those computers.
Otherwise those laptops will be trying to connect to the network with the old details.

My new d link router works fine..but my acer laptop wont pick it up...it says limited access? what does that mean? I have the security key..it has full signal..just says limited access


Most probably you setup WEP on your router and you're not typing the WEP Key on the computer you're trying to connect to the router.
You could try to remove all security first and once you can connect to the router you add it.


Ensure your wireless adapter's configuration matches the wireless configuration on router. Also ensure your wireless adapter driver status is working well.

If your computer OS is XP, you believed you have correct configuration and you have tried all solutions but still not working, then most probably it's due to winsock problem. You can even try winsockfix to fix the problem,here's the link WINSOCK. Hope it helps..

Can't connect to internet with router and wireless usb adapter


Hi,,
Did you check whether the USG adapter can work in "G" mode, read the manual of the usb adapter and check whether it can operate in "G" mode since your router is a wirelss "G" model the devices which detectes signals should also work in :g" mode, And most of the inbuilt adaters are viable with a/b/g/N type routers, so please check the manual and let me know
Thanks,

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

Installing a 32 bit air link wireless cardbus adapter AWL C3025


First have you tested a wired computer to assure all but the wireless section is configured correctly?

Second have you tested a wireless unencrypted connection to assure it works?

When choosing an encryption strategy did you assure the router and adapter supported the same choice. Generally there is WEP and WPA -- most people prefer WPA now however both the adapter and the router must support it to make it a viable choice.

To provide further assistance please check the model number of the router and provide either the manufacturer and model for the wireless adapter or the computer with a built-in wireless adapter you are attempting to connect.
