DWA 542 Wireless N Adapter Not Connecting to Router

I just bought the DWA 542 Wireless N Adapter. I've installed it, and it's picking the up the signal from my router. It starts to connect but then says that it is "acquiring network address." What do I do to get the damn thing connected to my router?

There can be only 3 reasons why it is not connecting

1) there is security enabled >> in which case u have to enter same security code in computer

2) Mac filter feature is enabled on the router >> in this case you need to disable that feature

3) it is not getting enough signal strength check for interference like cordless phones or microwave owens next to your router

message me if you hav any further doubts

How do you reset a D-Link DWA-542 to default settings


I am not sure that I understand the question
Wireless access cards (pci or pcmcia or USB) are just a means to connect to a network and do not have any device specific "settings" to change. There is no push button like on the back of a router to do any resetting, since there are no 'settings' for each device
The security and passord settings are held at the router and modem, not at this cliebnt card level.

Best Regards

I'm having this same problem. Will it connect to any other network? I've tried going into the settings on the network and changing the channel and a bunch of other settings. I've tried 2 different revisions of this same product. I'm starting to think it must be something in Window's that's interfering with my wireless card. I'll keep you posted if I figure anything out.

Sorry I don't have a solution - but am experiencing the exact same problem! The D-Link Connection wizard tells me "Wireless adapter not found! Please insert it now." when it is already installed, inserted and picking up signals well. Just disconnects from the internet after a second or two every time.
Did you find any solution that could help? I'd love to hear it!

try putting the wireless router closer to the computer but not right beside maybe theres interference with something, your built in wireless in the laptop is prob way stronger than the cards you got there are different ranges for different cards and if you get a low card it wont connect to high speeds or longer distances and make sure your connecting to your routers wireless and not someone elses wireless router, it sounds stupid but it happens ive did it before make sure the right drivers are on the computer for the card you installed hope one of those helps

Yes, the WRT54G router will support all 802.1 complaint devices, including the DWA-130 wireless n.  You will however not achieve 'n' speeds, only the fastest speed supported by the router which is 54G.
