Sounds like an IP address problem. Your IP address on both the NIC card (DFE 530) and the router have to be in the same address range. You can do this 2 ways. 1... Have your router hand out addresses automatically. Make sure DHCP is enabled and that you have at least one address available for it to give out. ie. 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.3. The first three number must be the same as the router. The other option is to manually set your IP address on your nic card to match the router. If the router is lets say 192.168.0.1 then you can assign 192.23.34.2 to your computer NIC. If you haven't been able to access your router then check your router manual to find out the default IP address and use the same number for your NIC changing only the last number. The largest number you can use is 255. Hope this helps.

NOT GETTING DLINK DFE 50 TX DRIVER


D-Link's support site shows that this product was discontinued in 2001. The operating systems supported by the driver only show up to Windows XP and not Vista or Windows 7. Windows XP has the driver in the operating system so you should be able to use the Add/Remove hardware wizard to install the driver within Windows or try from the CD that came with the card. If you are using a later operating system, there is a good possibility that the product is not supported.

Cheers!

I closed my business last month and my desk top dell dimension was networked with microsoft xp pro and i want to take the hard drive from that somputer and install it in my home computer which is a stand...


HI,
When you remove the harddrive from a computer and plug it into a different machine though of the same model.It would not boot, because the operating system product key is unique to the machine. If you want to use this particular hdd in your home system, make it a secondary harddrive or reload windows on the harddrive again. But doing so , you would remove everything from the harddrive.

Thanks for using Fixya

Running at 10 mbps


There's possibility that the network (router/modem/switch) you're trying to connect has limit to up to 10 Mbps only. Or it can be that the current LinkSpeed of the Ethernet adapter might be forced to 10 Mbps. Do the following to check this setting:
  1. Go to Control Panel> Network Connections.
  2. On Network Connections, look for Local Area Connection (for the D-Link adapter). Right click it then go to Properties.
  3. On Properties window, click Configure button.
  4. On the next window, go to Advanced tab.
  5. Look for Media Type, Connection Type, or LinkSpeed and Duplex Mode.
If the value is set to Auto Negotiation/ Auto/ AutoSense, try to force it to 100 Mbps.
