Question about D-Link DWL-G650M MIMO Pre-N Wireless Notebook Adapter - DWL-G650M_RE (DWLG650MRE)

Cannot connect to internet using DWL-G650M


I have a DWL-G650M inserted onto old Dell laptop. I previously have had no problems connecting to the internet via the router in the house. Now, however, I'm unable to connect. (No msg comes on...rather, the computer will mill around indefinitely on the first "bar" and finally I'm so disgusted I just turn off the darn thing.)

The only thing I can think of that has changed is that I took my laptop to another town and had tried to connect to hot spots there. (But I'm pretty sure I did not change any of the settings; rather, I just clicked on stuff like "Refresh Network list" etc).

Anyhow, I'm back home and it disturbs me to no end that I'll see "Connection strength very good," I'll click "repair" network (or whatever) and get a msg saying that it's been repaired, and yet, I still cannot connect to internet.

I'm not that tech savvy. I know that once I took my laptop to a library hotspot and was able to connect once I hit "repair." I know that if it's WEP-enabled you have to put in the 10-digit code. Other than that, don't know how else to go about getting my wireless internet back.

Please, please help.

Thx much,
Discouraged and missing my internet.

Re: Cannot connect to internet using DWL-G650M

More than likely this is, in fact, due to using a different network recently. You didn't mention your OS, but it sounds like Win XP.

  • Go to Start/Run/cmd
  • At the command line, type "ipconfig/release"
  • (Assuming you don't get an error) Type "ipconfig/renew"
If you don't get an error, you should be able to connect now. If you do get an error, tell me what it says :-)

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

You need an ADSL Modem & a Broadband connection. You run a cable from the Ethernet connection to the Modem/Router, and that connects to the telephone line, and then onto the internet.

I have a d-link g650m wireless router and do not have security key how do i get a new one


i believe you are talking about the wireless network key.

find the default gateway in command prompt using ipconfig command

launch internet explorer and type the default gateway in the address box and that should open the router's console after you punch in the admin password.

find the proper wireless security tab under which you could find the key or simply reset the router if the network key is mentoned on the router user that key..otherwise do no reset.

Wi-fi card on Win98SE laptop not allowing internet to connect.

I really believe this is some kind of driver error. You must first remove the existing driver and then install the following driver.
If that doesn't work we're gonna have to try messing with the wireless router settings.

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


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.
