Howdy,

I had similar problem with this same card. I would work fine then drop out. First, be aware that this is an 802.11b card. Meaning "b" and not "g" or "n". These "b" cards are almost obsolete - short range, etc. BUT - it will work fine if you config the router properly. Make sure that your broadcast is set to the "b only" range or the "both" range and NOT to the "g only" range. If you have another wireless device that is on "g" then you need to set the router for "both" ("b&g").

Secondly, (and this is what got me) if you want to use a secure (locked) wireless network, then be advised that this adapter will ONLY work with WEP encryption. I tried the "fix" D link has to remedy this to no avail. It will not support WPA or WPA-PSK(2). It will only support WEP so set your router accordingly. Once again, if you have other wireless devices then they will also have to be set to WEP encryption as well, WEP is really weak (easier to hack) and outdated - but it works. Do yourself a favor and upgrade to a more modern "g" card. Good Luck.

Yes/No. Dlink has no support for Linux. Ubuntu should install generic drivers but it may work or just epic fail.

Why cant i connect my dlink


Forget the D-Link drivers!!! I suffered with this same DWL-G630 issue for two years, trying different settings, reloading drivers, all with no solution. My card kept dropping it's connection, or wouldn't connect at all until I removed then replaced the card. Finally, I read on another forum this card uses the same chipset as an ASUS card, and to try the ASUS drivers. I downloaded and manually installed the drivers from here:

ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/lan/wifi-g/wifi-g.zip

Unzip it, but DON'T run the setup.exe file, because it will try to install the ASUS program. If you open the unzipped folder you will find another folder called "Drivers". Just use your Network Settings (from your Control Panels) to manually update the driver of your DLink card, and navigate to the Drivers folder just mentioned. Reboot -- you'll probably have to reconnect to your access point/router one last time, but that's it! It's good as gold after that.

I was used to losing connections 5-8 times PER DAY (I'm 15 feet from the router!) and now I've been connected non-stop for two weeks and counting!!

D-Link Air DWL 650 connecting to my Dlink router


You need to go into the wireless driver advanced properties and set the SSID, WEP Key, channel and others. Wherever there is an 'auto' option, choose it.

I never got the dlink utility to work. I let windows manage it and change the device settings in advanced props.

I upgraded my home computer from XP to Vista and now I can't connect to the internet through my Dlink Wlan AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G132


The Dlink Wlan AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G132 is not compatible with Vista. The drivers are only for 2000 and XP. There don't appear to be any Vista drivers anywhere on the internet for this card or the AR5005VL chipset the card is based upon.

It may also be an issue with a firewall on either computer. If you have McAfee, Norton or Windows Firewall enabled, disable it on both side and try the file sharing again. If it works, you will know that you have to check you firewall rules.

Connecting to wireless network


Hi,

Offhand, I am getting the impression that either way (static or auto), the AP is the one responsible for disconnecting or refusing you. One reason is that you do not have permission to join the network or there is a security key that you need to be able to access.

A couple of clarifying queries pls:
1. Which configuration utility are you using for the G630, D-Links or Windows built-in?
2. Which security method is the "sons dlink 1310 wpa network" using WEP, WPA or MAC filter?
3. Have you tried different hardware configuration/settings for the 630 such as Auto Power Save, Power Management, Authentication Algorithm, Passive Scan Dwell Time, others?
4. Can you access the webbased interface config utility of the 1310 router?

Pls post back and then we can start figuring things out.

Good luck and kind regards.
