    computer keeps disabling wirelwss card. when I enable it it shows low signal even when close to router

  • meckmann Feb 07, 2008

    I also can't get my Dynex Wireless Adapter to connect. I have a D-Link Router. The drivers are installed, the computer recognizes the adapter, the adapter recognizes my network, but the LED light never comes on on the adapter and when I click "connect" nothing happens.

    Is it because I bought an inexpensive adapter?

When you posted "cant...dynex wireless notebook card...operate..." do you mean:

1. It is not recognized by Win98SE;
2. Will not install:
3. missing/error on drivers;
4. will not connect:
5. will connect but drop;
6. will connect but no internet access?

Pls post back details. Further to what AP/Router are you connecting to?

Kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Re your 2nd post "...router...linksys, does that matter?..." Yes it does. Knowing that your AP/Router is a LinkSys tells me that in most likelihood, your Default Gateway is, your Subnet Mask is and that your Network Configuration in the IBM Thinkpad(mo#760EL) running Windows 98 SE should have an IP Address of something like (actually the .200 can be any number other than .1 or any number already in use in your network). This of course will only hold true if the default settings have not been changed.

    To set this configuration, you need to right click on your Network Neighborhood, highlight your TCP/IP, click on Properties and tick "Use the following IP Address"

    Since you also posted that you can connect to the LinkSys AP/Router, please verify your DNS Servers. You can get the DNS Server IP Address once you are logged in/connected to the Web Configuration Interface of the LinkSys. The said DNS Server IP Addresses should likewise be entered into the Win98SE Network Configuration. Further, you need to verify what security settings are enabled/used (WEP, WPA and/or MAC Filtering) and replicate/enable the same in the Win98SE.

    Additionally, you can also config a few settings in your browser:
    In Mozilla, click on Tools, Options, Advanced tab, Network tab,
    Settings button, tick "Auto-detect proxy settings for this connection,
    OK, OK;
    In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN
    settings button, check "Automatically detect settings", OK, Advance
    tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.
    In Opera, Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy server buttons, check "Enable HTTP 1.1 for proxy, OK, OK.

    Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you be in need of additional information.

    Good luck.

Where can I find a driver for Windows 98 USB wireless adapter

Windows 98 needs an USB driver for your adapter. A USB driver should have come with your adapter, if not got to the adapter manufacturer's WEB site and download a Windows 98 USB driver that is specific to your adapter.

Dynex dx-e101 Driver for Windows 98?

Unfortunately, that card requires Windows 2000 or higher to be used. There are no drivers for Windows 98, 98se, or ME.

Does dynex DX-WGDTC wireless desktop work for windows vista

The DX-WGDTC adapter is not compatible with Windows Vista. It was designed to work with Windows 98 through Windows XP. However, you can try to use it with a Windows Vista system. What will happen a lot of times is that the router will provide basic functionality but it may display some quirks, or it may drop the connection occasionally.

You can get a decent Wireless-G adapter for $30 or so, so you're probably better off just buying a Vista-compatible adapter, but if you already have this one, might as well see if it will work!

I want to install a Dynex wireless adapter

No such thing as a generic driver for a wireless card. That card uses a Broadcom bcm4318kfbg chipset, so you may be able to get a driver from the Broadcom site. If not, go shopping for a card that supports win98.....sorry.

Hope this helps!

IBM t43 fn f5 does not toggle wireless on. Reinstalled windows last week and wireless adapter is not recognized. I loaded proper drivers, but the adapter is not even seen by the operating system.

There are 2 wireless cards for this model. Be sure you have the correct one. Here is a link to download both of them:

Your Thinkpad should work off the router your desktop was working off of if your Thinkpad has a network card of the same type (wi-fi or RJ-45 cable) and speed that is compatible with your router (A, B, G).

If you had security settings on your router to filter users you will have to adjust them to accommodate your new Thinkpad. You or someone who has access to your router's interface would have had to specifically change security settings to make this necessary though.

Hope that helps! :)
