Re: Install D- Link adapter

It's not generally possible to connect two computers directly via a network adapter.  You need a hub or router in between the two computers (you would connect a cable from each computer to the hub or router, and that equipment facilitates the connection between the two computers).  Alternatively, you would need a "crossover cable" to connect the two computers directly without a hub or router.

Use the following steps to let Windows do the installation for you.

Step 1: Use an Ethernet cable and plug your computer directly to your Internet gateway. Make sure Internet is accessible.

Step 3: With your computer running, a bubble message will appear stating that this device was not installed successfully. Left click on the message.
But if the message no longer appears, skip to Device Manager Installation.
Step 4: On driver installation failure, you can change the setting to use Windows Update by clicking Change setting...

Reinstalling the wireless adapter

vista have this problem...

first, switch off computer and remove physically card from the computer, then de-install all possible traces of it, run ccleaner and clean the computer as well as registry.
go to d-link site and download newest drivers for your adapter, and os (vista). unfold software to c:/dlink

switch off computer again, re-install card and re-power the computer.

when automatic software install start, select manual install, point to newly created folder c:/dlink and select appriopriate driver from there, install.

this procedure usually solves the problem, vista try to instal generic windows drivers not specific hardware drivers, to prevent occurence of that, disable automatic updates in vista, and once a month or so, do only and only security updates from windows, never, ever update your hardware drivers from windows as these are just generic drivers generating more problems than solving. hope this help.

You just bought the laptop with the devie connected to it.
you must check whether it installed already .
if it already installed then you just need to connect to the wireless network.

Lan card

First of all are you sure there is one inside the computer? Secondly if it is installed inside the pc itself there may be a problem / driver not loaded. Make sure to install the drivers before trying to use your network adapter. Most of the time they come with a disk or you can download software from another computer!Have you tried another Lan Card? Just like any other PC component they can get fried.

Device will not start code 10 message

Code 10 means DRIVERS COULD NOT BE INSTALLED. Try installing the drivers manually.

Do this if pc is XP.
1.Keep the wireless adapter connected to the pc
2:Go to control panel, add/remove programs. Remove the wireless adapter software
3:Restart the computer, when the found new hardware wizard shows up click on it, click NO NOT THIS TIME, then select install from a list of specific location. On the next page Click on DON'T SEARCH, I WILL CHOOSE THE DRIVERS TO INSTALL.


5.Click BROWSE to set the location of your drivers
6.Open the driver folder, then the pc should copy the files.

Good Luck
