Question about D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

WIRELESS NETWORKING Recently went through the XP Wizard process to install a wireless card on my laptop. Three weeks later the connection keeps dropping (Signal Strength: Poor) even though the icon on the wireless adapter says that the signal strength is excellent. Although the card seems to be installled properly, the "Found New Hardware" Wizard never appeared during the install process and so the install was done manually.

There are several problems reported that may cause disconnection. First is the hiding of the SSID (wireless network name) and enabling WEP or WPA encryption. The recommended solution for that is to unhide the SSID in the router configuration.

Second is that there are more and more wireless devices and occasionally interference occurs on a single channel (even from non computer devices like wireless phones. As routers are often set to channel 6 you may be competing for radio communications with your neighbors. The recommendation is to switch the router to either channel 1 or 11. If your first choice does not work try the other.

I dont know how to connect it to my laptop wireless


  1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

    Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.

    Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.

    Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

    Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.

    Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

    Click on "Properties."

    Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

    Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

    Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

    Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

    Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

    Unable to use the wireless setup wizard - I am trying to connect my pc with my wireless printer. When I try to use the setup wizard on the pc it says depending on the wireless software installed on this pc...


    The Wireless Network Setup Wizard and the View Available Wireless Networks feature both rely on the Wireless Zero Configuration service to provide their functionality to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows XP Table PC Edition 2005. If the Wireless Zero Configuration service is not available, you receive an error message that directs you to this article. This behavior occurs for several reasons. Some computer and hardware manufacturers provide their own configuration software that replaces the Wireless Zero Configuration service that is provided in Windows. In that case, you must use the software that is provided by the manufacturer to configure your wireless network. If you want to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard or the View Available Wireless Networks feature to configure your wireless device, see the documentation that came with your computer or with your wireless network card. Use this documentation to determine whether you can use the Wireless Zero Configuration service to configure your wireless network. Sometimes, you cannot use the Windows functionality.
    If your computer or your wireless network adapter did not come with its own wireless network software, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
    2. Click Network Connections.
    3. In Network Connections, click to select your wireless connection, and then clickChange settings of this connection.
    4. On the Wireless Networks tab, click to select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.

    To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
    2. Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
    3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
    4. In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

    If you receive an error message when you try to start the service, see the "References" section for more troubleshooting information.For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 815485 Overview of the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security update in Windows XP 313242 How to troubleshoot wireless network connections in Windows XP

    Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue


    There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

    1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
    2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
    3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
    4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

    Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!

    Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.
