Question about Abit (WLP-01) Wireless Adapter

Abit wlp-01 suddenly won't find wireless network

After trying to install a CA security suite form my intenet access provider, my WLP-01 suddenly stopped finding my home wireless network in one of my PCs (VISTA operating system). It had previously worked for about a year no problem. If I screw around for a long time turning radio on/off, and disabling/enabling it sometimes finds it and will then connect with no problem. I can transfer the same card to another VISTA PC I have and it works perfectly. I have uninstalled the CA security suite and uninstalled/reinstalled the Abit driver several times. It seems as though there are files that are not getting totally wiped by the uninstall (even after I delete the Abit folder in Prgram Files).

How can I wipe the slate clean and get a good install of the WLP-01 wireless card?

With other adapters, I have needed to run a registry cleaner WinASO or RegistryFirstAid to clean out the unused entries so they could be reinstalled properly. Similar to removing some famous brands of Anitvirus that do not completely remove themselves.

Are You Overlooking the Obvious?

Unplugged or loose network cables are easy to miss yet one of the most common reasons you might suddenly find yourself unable to connect to the Internet. That's not a problem on wireless networks, but on most laptops the Wi-Fi radio can be inadvertently shut off instead. On home networks, it's also possible someone unplugged the router.
Action - Ensure your wired or wireless network hardware is switched on and plugged in. 02

Rule Out False Alarms


What may seem to be a network problem connecting to the Internet is sometimes simply a Web site (or whatever server is on the other end of the connection) being temporarily offline.
Action - Before assuming your Internet connection is faulty, try visiting several popular Web sites rather than just one. 03

Avoid IP Address Conflicts


If your computer and another on the network both have the same IP address, the conflict between them will prevent either from working properly online.
Action - To resolve an IP conflict, follow these instructions to release and renew your IP address. If your network uses static IP addresses, manually change your IP to a different number. More ยป 04

Check for Computer Firewall Malfunctions


Firewall software running on most computers is intended to prevent unwanted network traffic from disrupting its operation. Unfortunately, these software firewalls can malfunction and start blocking valid Internet traffic. When two software firewalls, such as Windows Firewall plus a third-party product, are installed on the same computer, contention between the two can also incorrectly block traffic.
Action - If you've recently installed or upgraded software firewalls on your computer, temporarily disable them to determine whether it may be the cause of Internet connection problems.

Are You Outside of Wireless Signal Range?


The performance of Wi-Fi network connections depends on distance between the device and the wireless access point. The further away a Wi-Fi device, the slower the local connection generally runs, until it breaks altogether. Wireless signal interference in the area can also limit the effective range of a Wi-Fi connection. Whenever you're unable to reach the access point, you also can't connect to the Internet, obviously.
Action - Use one of these options to measure the strength of your wireless signaland try these ideas to expand the range of your Wi-Fi.

Has Your Wireless Network Configuration Changed?


Wi-Fi networks with encryption options like WPA or WEP turned on require computers to use matching security keys when connecting. If someone changes the encryption keys or passphrase on the access point, devices that worked before will suddenly be unable to establish sessions and Internet connections. Likewise (though less likely), if the access point settings are changed to require using a specific Wi-Fi channel number, some computers may be unable to discover it.
Action - Confirm the Wi-Fi channel number and encryption keys on your router have not recently changed (check with the network administrator if necessary). When using a hotspot, follow the provider's instructors for signing on carefully.

Check for Broadband Router or Access Point Malfunctions


Home networks that use broadband routers are easier to manage than those without one, but technical glitches with the router can also prevent computers from connecting to the Internet. Router failures are caused by overheating, excessive traffic, or simply an older unit going bad. Typical symptoms of a flaky router include computers on the network not being able to obtain IP addresses, or the router console not responding to requests.
Action - Check the router's lights and console if possible to ensure it is running and responding properly. Troubleshoot and reset the router if necessary.

Are You Being Blocked By Your Service Provider?


Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can choose to block access from your account if you fail to make payment or otherwise violate the provider's Terms of Service. Especially when using paid hotspots that charge by the hour or day, sometimes people forget to keep their subscription updated. Other common reasons an ISP might block your account include exceeding bandwidth caps, sending spam email, and downloading ******* or inappropriate content.
Action - Contact your ISP if you suspect your account has been blocked.

Cope with Computer Glitches


Computers, too, suffer from technical glitches. Although relatively uncommon nowadays, a computer's network adapter hardware might suddenly fail due to overheating or age. Failures in the operating system software that control the adapter, on the other hand, can occur frequently especially with computers that are heavily used. Viruses and worms also may disable or block a computer's network interfaces from functioning properly. Finally, if using a laptop or other mobile device, transporting it from one location to another can corrupt the state of its network.
Action - Check the computer for malware and remove any found. On Windows computers, try resetting the network connection. Reboot the computer if necessary.

Contact Your Internet Service Provider


Those using satellite Internet service may notice they can't connect to the Internet during periods of very bad weather. Providers in dense urban areas (including cellular Internet carriers) sometimes are unable to support peaks in network traffic that causes sporadic outages for some customers. Finally, those who subscribe to newer or more complex forms of Internet services (such as fixed wireless broadband) may experience more downtime than others as providers encounter more issues with relatively less mature equipment.
Action - If all else fails, contact your Internet provider to verify whether they are experiencing an outage. Some providers also give advice on troubleshooting problems connecting to their network (sometimes for a fee 12 Tips for Troubleshooting Your Internet Connection

How do I set security on my DWL-952


There are 2 possible areas raised by this question. The first is a security patch needed to fix the firmware of your router, which by the way is not dwl-952. Your router is a di 954. Dwl 952 is a bundled router and network interface. The details of the firmware update are below.

Security patch for your D-Link router
These firmware updates address the security vulnerabilities in affected D-Link routers. D-Link will update this continually and we strongly recommend all users to install the relevant updates.
As there are different hardware revisions on our products, please check this on your device before downloading the correct corresponding firmware update. The hardware revision information can usually be found on the product label on the underside of the product next to the serial number. Alternatively, they can also be found on the device web configuration.
Please make sure you follow the firmware install guide provided within the ZIP firmware package.

Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524UPAx_FW108B02.bix to update firmware.

The second possibility is to set the local security on your network.

From the wikipedia page:
Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. The most common types of wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP is a notoriously weak security standard. The password it uses can often be cracked in a few minutes with a basic laptop computer and widely available software tools. WEP is an old IEEE 802.11 standard from 1999 which was outdated in 2003 by WPA or Wi-Fi Protected Access. WPA was a quick alternative to improve security over WEP. The current standard is WPA2; some hardware cannot support WPA2 without firmware upgrade or replacement. WPA2 uses an encryption device which encrypts the network with a 256 bit key; the longer key length improves security over WEP.

Log in to your router and find the wireless security section. Set up the security model that best suits your needs and then set up your wireless network card with the same information.

Abit wlp-01 picks up many networks and I try to access two of these without success, I enter the SSID and the Passphares of the modem


I am unsure as to what your question is? Do you want to know how to use the wireless adapter to connect to networks and access the internet? If this is your question, here is my answer;

When the wireless adapter picks up the signal to the network that you wish to access, choose to connect to it. From that point, you need to know the name of the network, the WEP Code or password for the router or network connection and the passphrase or password that allows the user to connect to the network.

Once all the above information is entered, connecting to the network should not be a problem. If you are encountering specific errors or problems, use the comment or reply link on Fixya near your question and report them to me. I will be happy to assist until this problem is solved.

First thing that you can do is to set up the wireless settings of your router, it will depends on what brand you are using. So after you do the set up, it will require a wireless name, channel, mode etc. Choose wireless security that suits your device, we have WEP and WPA technology.

How to use the wireless key


Hi,

Wireless keys are like your secret password. Provided you have a wireless router and wireless devices to access internet - You might want to secure the wireless signals emitted by the router to ensure that your neighbour is not using free internet :-). So all you do is access the router's setup page and under wireless tab enable the wireless security feature.

Wireles security generally of two types
- WEP
- WPA

select the one suits best to your network and save the changes. once you are done with the router - you will now search for wireless network from your computer/s and select the network. The router will now ask you to type the password (the one you eariler entered on the router). Enter the correct password and you will be connected. Now your neighbours can see your network but cannot access it unless you share your password with them.
