D-Link Air DWL 520 802.11b Wireless Adapter won't install?

I am running windows vista, trying to install the adapter. The physical component is in the computer, but when I try and load the program on the disk, it installs, but I try and click on the program and it appears for a couple seconds and then automatically goes away. So i cant change any settings! Advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Load software 1st. then adapter. 2. I don't think this adapter will work in Vista. 3. DWL 520 & 620 have chip issued (rev a I think) that cause system lockups.

It might be that your windows might be corrupt or try inserting the adapter on a different PCI port on the motherboard and reinstall the drivers for the Network Wireless Adapter Card. And see what happens. If you are still experiencing the same problem, my very best advise should be to take you computer to a computer shop where they can both physically as well as test the operating systems for any errors.

Try resetting the router. Sometimes they stop broadcasting the SSID and need to be reset.

Let me know if that doesn't work.

Reinstalling the wireless adapter


vista have this problem...

first, switch off computer and remove physically card from the computer, then de-install all possible traces of it, run ccleaner and clean the computer as well as registry.
go to d-link site and download newest drivers for your adapter, and os (vista). unfold software to c:/dlink

switch off computer again, re-install card and re-power the computer.

when automatic software install start, select manual install, point to newly created folder c:/dlink and select appriopriate driver from there, install.

this procedure usually solves the problem, vista try to instal generic windows drivers not specific hardware drivers, to prevent occurence of that, disable automatic updates in vista, and once a month or so, do only and only security updates from windows, never, ever update your hardware drivers from windows as these are just generic drivers generating more problems than solving. hope this help.

DWL-G122 how do you load to windows 7


The support documentation for this USB wireless adapter is here: http://www.dlink.com/products/default.aspx?pid=DWL-G122&tab=3
Depending on the revision number there are Windows Vista drivers.

The product is listed as Win7 compatibile on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center. At that site, it says "no action required" so the drivers you need may be part of the Win7 OS. Try plug and play first. Otherwise try a Vista driver (just uninstall any non-working driver before trying another).

I hope this helps.

Trouble getting a connection


This adapter's driver is pre-installed in Vista. That means that Vista should automatically see it and install it.
Power down your computer.
take out the D-link adapter.
Power on the PC. Once you get to the desktop, check in the control panel > device manager. It should not be there.
Then power off the PC again.
insert the adapter but in a different PCI slot.
Power on the PC and Vista should see it ans set it up.
The cd would not help you because the D-link Utility does not work in Vista.
I have read the the XP drivers alone would work, But try this first.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Failure to install D-link Air DWL-122 on Windows XP


I think the D-Link Adapter is a piece of ****. I have tried 3com and netgear and they all work well. Try setting Static Address instead of dynamic. Saying that - I didn't power down either as the instruction manual is totally useless.
