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

2 Answers

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?

Try uninstalling it and re-installing it. the problem may be with its drivers.

    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.

We are paying for netflix. How do we get it on our television? Our television is connected to comcast and we have wifi?


But is your TV a "Smart TV"? That means does the TV connect to the internet. Just because you have Comcast connected to your TV doesn't mean it is getting an internet signal. The black coax to the TV only carries a TV signal.
To get internet service to your TV first you have to determine if it is capable. If it does have a wireless receiver in it, you will have to configure it to attach to your wireless base station. If it doesn't have a wireless adapter you will have to connect a network cable from the base station into the TV and then configure it to work with your network. Once you have that internet signal working on your TV you will be able to use Netflix on your TV.

You can do a reset on the router to make a factory settings.On the back of the router you can look for a small hole usually with the word reset.Press it for 20 secs with the router on but disconnected from the Ethernet cable.Start up your PC and surf to the router Web UI (192.168.***) and make your settings.

Comcast Cable Down All Day Every Day


Here's some things to check:
If there are signal splitters on your cable for TV, computer, more than one tv, the signal is getting divided ...every splitter will weaken the signal.
Check for unneeded splitters, also there are splitters that have a wider frequency capability.
Consider upgrading to 2hgz splitters if needed.
Also I think that the more homes that are on the cable tend to make the signal weaker...I don't comcast would fess up to this, but I'm pretty sure it's true.
Make sure all your cable connections are snug and you may want to double check for corrosion etc. on each connection.
I resorted to a signal amplifier on my home. We've got comcast for cable tv and internet, with multiple tv's and multiple computers.
The amplifier (motorola) boosted the signal for everything and we've got way less dropped, frozen pix, black screens and the internet is back up to speed.
Comcast even came out and put a signal strength meter on the in-line to the house and stated it's within their limits... Glad I put the amp on the line..
Give it a try.

there are many possible reasons and solutions for this
-sometimes the weather can block the signal to a router or PS3
-the closer the router is to your PS3 the better the signal

Wireless G and Comcast cable internet


Im not sure about the monopoly thing?
But it must the settings that is causing a problem.
If I understand you concern correctly your computer is connecting to the router wirelessly, is that right?
and can you get online if the computer is wired directly to the router?

Lost internet


The usb stick is replacing the job of the card in the pc so it could be faulty, but first reinstall the latest driver for it and give it another try - what version of windowns/linux to do run? What make is the card - (look in Device Manager)? Then I can help further if needed.

After I installed a new printer I cannot get online.


Do you have a firewall installed? If so, disable it and see if that helps. Try a system restore, Start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. It will give you a list of dates to restore to. Put the latest date that you knew that you had a working connection.
