DWA-142 Rangebooster When using this product and connecting to a network the sound quality of my Toshiba laptop (streaming audio, media players such as Windows Media Player, DIVX, VLC, etc. Mp3s etc etc and even the internal sounds, ie alert tones) become statiticy, slow down and speed up intermittantly , echo, or become garbled) but when I disconnect from the wireless network even if the D-Link adapter is enabled all sound functions return to normal. I use XP and reinstalled OS to start from scratch and as soon as the D-Link driver is installed asthe first and only hardware software add, on the problem begins. Help.

    I have the same problem..the music craps out..as well i get the warning at start up of incompatibility...and that's probably 'cause i'm running Vista..though i have to say that the range booster does help with the reception...

I lost my CD for D-Link Rangebooster N USB Adapter & a driver for Window 7


Go to this page:


http://www.dlink.com/us/en/home-solutions/support/product/dwa-140-wireless-n-usb-adapter?revision=us_reva


select your "revision" A or B, it should say on the device. The selection box is on the right side of the page.

For revision B just download the most recent driver, it has the windows 7 driver in the package. For revision A, just use the windows vista driver for the bit level of operating system you have (32 or 64 bit) in the most recent driver for revision A.

once you have the zip, just extract it, then plug in the device, when it asks for the drivers point it at the extracted files.

Connected but cant use internet explorer


here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .
good luck .

I wana konw abut hot may i install D-Link dwa 142 Driver for Linux


you can use ndiswrapper with windows drivers.
1. You need to install ndiswrapper (`apt-get install ndiswrapper` on debian-based systems or `yum install ndiswrapper` or smth like this on redhat-based)
2. Get windows .inf and .sys file. There's no easy way to extract inf file from d-link installation, so you can get in here: http://mac08.zcom.ru/netmw.zip
3. Run ndiswrapper -i netmw245.inf

HI.I was watchinglive streaming but there is a eror sudenly.this eror:rtsp://78.129.143.64/broadcast/pull/81.31.32.47:2030/broadcast/pull/81.19.7.50:3051/stv3.rmvb Can you help me...


Streaming audio/video quality can be affected by connection rate and Internet congestion. Many types of interruptions between your computer, your player, your computer's OS, your local network, your ISP and a streaming server can exist and cause trouble....
When you listen to the live audio/video stream, the sound or video skips, cuts out or buffers if the player doesn't have enough network bandwidth, it will buffer. Try increasing your player's buffering setting.Also:
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth version of a media stream based on your Internet connection.
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth settings in an Internet media player or streaming audio/video recorder.
  • Make sure NOT to download applications or files while watching/listening to media streams. Your Internet connection is shared between all open applications including your web-browser, your download manager and your streaming player. Closing applications that use your Internet connection simultaneously with your streaming player may reduce buffering.
  • Close other unnecessary applications that may be open on your computer. Reboot your computer. If you have lots of other programs open, they may be using too much processor time and/or RAM for the player to work properly.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is fast enough to reliably listen to streaming audio and/or watch streaming video online. High speed Internet connection is recommended.
  • Make sure your computer is fast enough. If your computer is old, it might be too slow to play an audio/video stream regardless of what else it's doing.
  • Update your media players and streaming audio/video recorders regularly.
Internet congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, make it difficult for you to connect or cause buffering. Often the interruption is temporary. Please try to connect a few times at different times of the day, if possible. If you repeatedly have problems connecting, please notify your ISP - there are often quick fixes they can make when they learn about your issue.

Try the above steps you will find a solution to your problem....100% it will work.....
