Hi, I have recently bought a DLink G usb card for wireless neetwork as my Laptop does not have wireless included. Although the laptop now with this card see the network, when I am asked the password and I introduce it I get a error message that I must have 13 ASCII characters and passord has only 11. Wireless network is working fine, other laptops can see and connect through it with this 11 characters password which was set bay service provider. I see the network, the signal is 100% but I cannot get through the pass key. WHY?Why should I do? I appreciate your help

I have chosen KCWEP or something like that when I configured router at network key. However menu from the USB card does not have this option. I have chosen WEP or WPA but still after recognising the networg the password dialog box appear saying I need a key to conect to it but the key must have ascii 64 bit or 128 bit, and wont accept the password establish when I configuered the router. Another laptop works fine but it is true it has wireless incorporated. I believe G card USB does not know all the protocols of the router, but I wonder how is this possible if router and card came in one pack together . Or maybe this is related to windows copy I have on the laptop?? It is XP so It shouldnt be any problems... Do you think I can do anything else?Thanks for all support

Make sure its the wep or wpa key that you are typing in rather than the password for your broadband connection. When on the screen for typing in your key does it give you an option of assci or hex or 64bit or 128 bit key?

It sounds like the Ethernet adapter setting on the laptop that you bought has been manually set to an address that is being used on your LAN already.
Additionally, if the laptop even has only 802.11b capable WiFi, you should still be able to use it with that router if you configure the router to use 2.4GHz compatibility mode.
Tell us the make and model of the laptop that you bought, and we may be able to direct you to the latest drivers for this laptop even as old as it is.

HP dv1000 laptop and internal wireless modem

Although you have internal wireless, you are capable of attaching an external wireless device. For example, you could attached a D-Link WUA-1340 USB Wireless G adapter (, or, if you have a PCI port, you can use a Linksys WPC300N Wireless-N Notebook adapter ( Either device with any brand will work just like your internal wireless. In fact, because you chose to use an external device, you may get a better wireless signal. Because internal wireless devices are inside the computer, it is more difficult to received a signal than with an external device.

Is the wireless enabled for your router? Try typing and use the default password to access your router settings. Check if wireless is enabled, SSID is broadcasted, and security is off or properly configured.

Wireles conection problem

I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.

Hope this info helps!
