Question about D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G122 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Password Problems I have just started to use the d-link wireless adapter and for some reason i get a connection to my wireless router but the internet still doesn't work. I can only figure that its because i am not sure how to or not able to add the password. The authentication of the router is on open and i notice that i cant get into "authentication config" if its set to that, if i try to set the profile to WPA, WPA2, etc, to get into authentication config it wont connect! i cant figure out how to keep it on open and put a password in! any ideas and help? thanks

    Thats the problem though, i am not getting a prompt for a network key. I am running windows 2000 so this may be a problem, its not the router as there are other people using wireless.

    Hi, Similar. Adapter shows excellent strength and high speed, tried with no encryption both ends. IE and email will not open. Two other computers using cable via router OK. Can't find a wireless network on any of the computers. All running XP Home SP2. Seems complex but feel I am missing something simple! Any suggestions

Maybe you are getting LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY. This happens when the wireless adapter is able to find a network but the pc cannot get an ip address. One of the reason for that is that your wireless network might be secured and you missed to enter the correct network key when you were asked by the computer. The wireless security is set on the wireless router, SO WHEN YOU SET THE PROFILE ON YOUR WIRELESS ADAPTER, YOU SHOULD ALREADY HAVE THE WIRELESS SETTINGS FROM YOUR WIRELESS ROUTER. THEY HAVE TO MATCH FOR YOU TO HAVE A COMPLETE CONNECTION.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave' for today.

As you evaluate my advice and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent but I must rely on what you do or do not tell me.

Subject: Unable to connect to Internet with a wireless router

Customer's exact description: Hi , when i go to the site 192.168.0.1, I put in "Admin" and leave the password blank, I still cannot log in. can you help me out? I need to create a password.

Discussion: I'm assuming that you are running a recent version of Microsoft Windows such as XP, Vista or 7. This will be a three (3) phase solution. It is imperative that each step be followed in order.

First Step:

Let's make certain that your operating system is ready to accept your router. Click on the following link and Microsoft will analyze your system and correct any deficiencies. Microsoft Fixit Site.

Second Step:

Make certain that your router is up-to-date.

Updates are regularly posted on the manufacturer's site to fix issues you encountered while attempting to use their device. The following will guide you on how to keep your device updated and working properly.

These are the common reasons why you need to do an upgrade:

• Dropping or intermittent connection
• Fix the bugs and known issues with the current firmware or driver version
• Basic Troubleshooting did not work

NOTE: For basic troubleshooting tips in wirelessly connecting to your router, please refer to your user manual.

Firmware updates are required especially if you start experiencing connection problems within your local network. An updated firmware also fixes the bugs of its previous version as well as providing new functionalities for the device. However, this should only be done after doing some basic troubleshooting that did not work.

NOTE: Updating the router's firmware is not recommended if there are no connectivity issues.

Adapters

A driver update for your adapter is necessary in order to enhance the wireless performance and functionality of your device. This is recommended especially if the adapter is not working properly after you updated the router or the computer itself. A corrupted driver will cause your adapter to stop working.

QUICK TIP: For Ethernet and wireless adapters, you need to download drivers while for devices such as routers, gateways and network access storage, you need to download the firmware. The table below will show the type of file you will download according to your device.

Third Step:

Connecting to the Internet using a Router

Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.

  • Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
  • Power down your computer(s).
  • Plug the power in to your router.
  • Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet". Turn on your Modem.
  • Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
  • Turn on the computer.
  • From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
  • Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.


Since this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the Router's Wireless Channel and SSID -- or some other similiar language in your user guide --for a description of this process.

Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.

Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.

That's the three step program to solve this particular problem.

If you are still having problems, follow the steps outlined in the Windows operating instructions. Unfortunately, most individuals buy computers with the software installed by the manufacturer and don't receive the full manual.

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Click on TOOLS
  3. Click on INTERNET OPTIONS
  4. Click on CONNECTIONS
  5. Click on SETUP
  6. Click on I WANT TO SET UP MY INTERNET CONNECTION MANUALLY
  7. Click on NEXT
  8. Click on I CONNECT THROUGH A LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN)
  9. Click on NEXT
  10. Click on NEXT [this is not a typo]
  11. Click on TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET IMMEDIATELY .........; and,
  12. Click on FINISH


You should now be connected.

All the best,

Ben

Wont connect to internet


Secure is not there to re-assure you, its telling you the network is password protected & you need the password to connect. The wireless key will appear on the staus screen of your router. Connect using a wire, goto the router status screen & write down the wireless key, try to re-connect wirelessly.

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.

Cannot connect to the internet. Error message says adapter not connected. Where is the adapter?


For most laptop/notebook/netbook computers, the wireless adapter is "inside" the casing.

By "not connected", it means that your wireless-adapter *IS* physically connected to your computer, but it does *NOT* have a "logical" connection to the wireless-adapter inside the router.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Network Connections
Click View Available Wireless Networks
Select the SSID corresponding to your router.
Click Connect.
Supply an ID/password/pass-phrase, to get "connected".

Have d-link DWL-122 wireless usb adapter on vista operating system. trying to setup connection with d-link router on another tower not allowing connection. How do I set up wireless connection thats outside...


Start with the router. On a PC that you have connecting to the router, open a browser and enter http://192.168.0.1/ Login as admin with the password you setup. Use the wireless setup wizard to walk through establishing Internet connection with your internet provider. Set your SSID and security protocol and key. Save settings and wait for router to restart.

From Vista PC with wireless adapter, be sure to check d-link site for latest driver. Right click on network icon in lower right (task area) and select Connect to and view available networks. You should see the SSID save on the router. Click on it and choose connect. You will be prompted for the security key.

Post back if have more issues.

Upgrade of router giving connection problems


You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.

Wireless adapter gives limited websites


hi debbie
the fact that your computer has internet access shows that your adapter and router is working well

the reason you may be denied access to certain websites may be because of feature called trusted sites in internt explorer

if you hav downloaded mozilla it would import setting from IE so trusted sites would remain

to disable this in ie go to tools>> internet options >>> connections >>> put it on accept all cookies and disable trusted sites

Internet connection keeps dropping


Two possible reasons

If you have hidden your network name (SSID) in the wireless configuration in the router and use WEP or WPA security there may be a bug that can result in extended disconnect periods. Recommended solution unhide the SSID and keep the WEP or WPA security.

Second there are numerous wireless devices in use. Keep your wireless phone base station away from your wireless router. Try changing the channel your router's radio uses to transmit -- Channels 1, 6 and 11 are preferred. Try one you are not using, if that does not work try the other. (If you can see the surrounding channels in you connection wizard you may want to start with one no one else is using)
