Hi Atta,
The memory dump is not actually a error. It is the system making a log of the what is in the memory, at the time of a crash. The actual error was caused by something else. That DLink series of wireless adapter card, and thier drivers, seem to be very problematic. I found a lot of complaints, like this one, about them.

Any driver or device consistantly using 90% of your CPU is a bad investment. I am not a Dlink hater, since I use two Dlink routers.

You can go here, and get the most recent drivers for that adaper, and see if they help.

If the situation continues, and Dlink doesn't put out a fix, you might want to switch to a different brand. One other "fix" I have seen work on several problematic devices like this, is to disable the Dlink Wireless software, just keep the drivers, and use the Windows Wifi interface to control the wireless.

Good luck.

Dwl-520 PPPoE problem

Besides the DHCP/PPoE issue that cnavarro already said, I recommend you to check the interface metric, click on start, then on run, type cmd and click on ok
then in the black window type "netstat -r" that will tell you the metric of each interface according to each network destination, depending on what you see in there (like windows looking for a network trough another device) then just change the metric to 1 in your dwl520.
here is how to do it

How to make my DWL-2000AP works like a wireles card and is there any driver for it?

It sounds as if you want to use your access point to connect into a wireless network. A typical, simple wireless network includes (1) access points and (2) clients such as a wireless card in your laptop. Access points can only communicate with clients and clients only communicate with APs. However, many access points can be configured to be clients. Usually you would find that in the basic wireless setup page. I don't know if the DWL-2000AP can be set up that way, but you can check in the manual. If it can, then you would select that mode, then specify the SSID of the network you want to join.

I am not able to install driver for D-link wifi card

The card could be bad. I've found over the years that most of these desktop wireless cards work best when the software is installed before the card is installed. Meaning uninstall all the software. Turn off the machine. Remove the wireless card. Turn back on the machine. Install the software. Once installed, shut down the machine. Install the card. Turn back on the machine and lets Windows find the card and the software.
