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

Can't connect To internet w/ Wireless

I can't connect to the Internet -- the icon on the trey says no signal -- we have wireless connectivity in our house through Comcast. My wife's computer connects just fine. I have an older Dell system and use a D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G630 wireless card that fits in a PCMCIA card slot on the side of ym laptop. Could the card be failing? It has worked fine for several years. I haven't done anything to my laptop or installed anything new that might change settings. Do I need to go out and buy a new card? Is there anything else I can do to try and troubleshoot this problem on my own?

    when you say uninstall, do you mean take the card out? I did that and then put it back in -- is that what you mean?

    If drivers have to be installed or downloaded how do i do that when I can't connec to the Internet?

    well, usually when you put the card in, the laptop automatically detects it right and installs it. but with your case, you may want to check the wifi card in the device manager. if its enabled and working properly. pls check with the wificards manufacturers site because they may have updates for your card. it seems that this may be like about compatibility issue with the old dell laptop your using.

    you can do that using computer there. all you need to do is check whether there is a driver update for your D-link airplus to be able to work with your dell laptop in terms of drivers.



    as for the OS youre using, if its WinXP, try using windows Zero Config. As for Vista, it is automatic.

    if there is such new drivers for your dlink airplus, you need to download it and copy that to a flashdrive and install it on the dell laptop.

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?


What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

I hooked up my D'link to modem and computer and connection is good. But i can't find it when i search on laptop wireless connection. I think you need i driver but i can't find one. Thank You


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

What is the difference between an adapter and router?


Hi

A router is a device that normally will be connected to the modem which gets the internet connection from the modem & gives out a wireless signal.


An adapter is a device that will be connected to the computer. This is a wireless receiver which receives the wireless signal from the wireless router & connectes to internet.

My Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945BG Network Connection , has a limited connectivity to the internet


Sometime when you switch on the computer and the wireless router (if you turn it off after using it) the computer does not get an IP address from the router in time when the computer finishes booting up. This problem may not occur all the time.
When you get the limited connectivity error, then right click on the wireless connection icon on the Task Bar and click REPAIR. This will get the wireless router to issue the wireless card an IP address.
Then you will have proper Internet connection.

Problems with WiFi netgear WNDA3100


the drivers should be installed in windows 7 by default, their so called "smart wizard" has some compatibility issues with windows 7, I get it to load up and it will shut down or glitch out. What I did was uninstall the downloaded driver and use the default windows drivers, flipped the switch off to my built in G wifi adapter and the netgear automatically kicked in and took over as the default wireless adapter.

Internet half works with wireless adapter


Kinda odd one this.. Have you checked properties of the wireless icon in control panel/network connections - check dns server is on auto? If so, start a dos shell, type ipconfig /all and see if the dns info is the same as the other working pc's you have.. Also when right clicking the network icon, select repair, instead of properties, that does a heap of things to correct problems..

Also, from another user on Fixya, try this..

you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.

Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled.

might help.. Rgds,

Unable to open internet page


let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.
