Question about D-Link DWL-G510 802.11g/b (d47112) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

The DWL-G510 doesn't start

I bought this card a few days ago. I installed the driver software under Windows XP and then I installed the PCI card in its slot. Everything worked perfectly until I had a serious problem with my computer and had to format all my drives and re-install Windows XP. During the whole process, I left the adapter in the PCI slot. I realize I should have taken it out now that I can't seem to make it work anymore. I cleaned up the registry, uninstalled the driver, took the adapter out; and finally followed the correct installation procedure all over again. It still didn't work. I even re-installed XP and still it refuses to work. I'm completely out of options. Can somebody help me, please. I would be very thankful!

Re: The DWL-G510 doesn't start

If you have formated all your drives you will have no official motherboard drivers for your pci bridge, sound driver, onboard lan or video, usb or agp slots, only the generic windows drivers which arent always reliable, so check you motherboard model and then go to the manufacturer web site and download the correct drivers. All the work you have done was unnecassry unfortunately, unless it gave you major system faults, the fault may have been motherboard drivers, i also recommend removing the pci card and before installing the board drivers and using a different pci slot.

Cannot get drivers to download for dlink dwl-g510

One way to get online is to get a usb to ethernet adapter, then go to the manufacturers website, be it the computer manufacturer such as dell, or the motherboard manufacturer. However, I noticed you mentioned a dwl, are you using exclusivly wireless for this PC? Also, what is the error you are receiving?

Windows XP SP3

Hello, Lore.
Did you mean DWL-6510 or DWL-G510?
I have some comments for the last one; if it is not your PCI-card, I hope the solution is alike, at least.
My PCI-card is G510 version C and I recently posted a comment on a certain Internet Forum. See what I wrote:

First of all: D-Link simply mistreated all the costumers who bought version Cx.
The best thing to do:
1- Get the latest drivers from Australia site - - (look for SUPPORT and not "quick find").
2- Specially for Win XP-SP3, try the USA site; you will need to follow this path because the update file is very hidden on the site: click support / FAQ / search for "G510 SP3" and see the answer for the only question that is there (so far); download the newest driver for SP3; this driver has no installer; you will have to use it as an update if you have already a driver installed (click "properties" and "update driver" on the device located at control panel / system / hardware); if you have no driver already istalled, you will have to do the opposite of DLink directions: install phisically the card before installing driver, click start / control panel / system / hardware and search for a "?" sign, click on it and provide it the downloaded driver.

Good luck!!
