Question about D-Link Air DWL 520 802.11b (DWL-520) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Hello, hope all is well i have just bought a new desktop computer with a DWA 520 wireless adapter... we have been struggling to get a decent signal from our wireless Dlink router. So much so we have already exchanged the card once. Now trying a third card Tp Link TL-N851N which is no better. I have a laptop which operates in the same room and we have no problems with signal at all a comparison reads 9.1kbs vs laptop 145kbs..

    Thanks Z89s..

    We are using now a N wireless card.. and have spent 6 hours on the phone with Dlink so all of the sotware and drivers are up to date. I think the next thing will be to try a N router.

Try putting the wireless router closer to the computer but not right beside maybe theres interference with something, your built in wireless in the laptop is prob way stronger than the cards you got there are different ranges for different cards and if you get a low card it wont connect to high speeds or longer distances and make sure your connecting to your routers wireless and not someone elses wireless router, it sounds stupid but it happens ive did it before make sure the right drivers are on the computer for the card you installed hope one of those helps

I installed a DWA-110 on a Windows 7 computer. It


Sorry I don't have a solution - but am experiencing the exact same problem! The D-Link Connection wizard tells me "Wireless adapter not found! Please insert it now." when it is already installed, inserted and picking up signals well. Just disconnects from the internet after a second or two every time.
Did you find any solution that could help? I'd love to hear it!

Wireless adapter not found please plug-in the DWA-120


After uninstalling it completely from the computer. When you plug in the adapter alone. You must get the "Found New Hardware" wizard. And nothing else apart from this. Only then it is correct. If nothing comes up at all, the device is dead or your version of USB might USB 1.0 or USB 1.1 which at times has issues. But if you see that wizard coming up, unplug the adapter and insert CD and run setup and walk through it.

Anyway, i ll recommend that you try this adapter on other NEW computer(laptop or desktop), just to check.
I feel that this adapter would work on a new computer, maybe your computer's hardware specifications are old to support this device.

DWA 542 Wireless N Adapter Not Connecting to Router


There can be only 3 reasons why it is not connecting

1) there is security enabled >> in which case u have to enter same security code in computer

2) Mac filter feature is enabled on the router >> in this case you need to disable that feature

3) it is not getting enough signal strength check for interference like cordless phones or microwave owens next to your router

message me if you hav any further doubts

D-Link Air DWL 520 802.11b Wireless Adapter problem


On the computer with the USB wireless card. Uninstall the wireless adapter program and use only the driver so that you can connect with the Windows wireless configuration utility. Then restart the computer and see if you are able to see the signal now. if not create a profile put in the SSID of your network and connect
