    Thanks, yes I am trying to connect to a wireless network. I have tried using both Windows XP utility as well as turning it off and using Dlink utility. No luck! The network access works fine on another computer.
    I can not view the network , but I used the option to add it any way since I have the WEP key, SSID etc. No luck again!

    IS there a wireless switch on the computer sometimes? One of the suggestion I got was to check if that is 'on'. Do not know how to check for the swirch and turn it on. ..Prati (still not connected).

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Are you trying to connect to the wireless network ?
You are using windows XP computer. and you have D-link adapter.
In case of windows XP computer there is built in utility to connect to the wireless network. and also you have Dlink utility to connect to the wireless network.
It will be better to use the Windows utility to connect to the wireless network.
Search for the wireless network and you will see your wireless network. I believe you have the wireless router.

Where can i download a config utility for my D-LINK AIRPLUS DWL-G510 ADAPTER


Here is the site for the driver.
http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=DWL-G510&rev=DWL-G510

Dlink does not have a configuration utility for this device, so it may be that there was not one offered. Instead you can use the zero configuration utility with Windows XP.

It also states that this device has been discontinued; the driver is the 1st release driver and has not been updated.

select the DWL-G510 driver to download it, or if you have the h/w rev.2 click the FAQ and select the option for a missing "wlanapi.dll" file. There is an updated driver for this revision on the link to that FAQ resolution. For ease of use it is here:
http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=DWL-G510&rev=DWL-G510_revB

Good luck and I hope this helps.

I sugest you install SP3 because it has fixes some security bugs in Windows XP.
SP3 is very large, you maybe able to get your computer savy friends or friendly computer shop to help you, they most likely have SP3 on a CD.

Ah...found it!

I think that with XP service pack 3, it caused a problem with the wireless card driver.

I just installed the latest driver, and it connected for me without a problem. Here's a link to the driver:

Hello, Lore.
Did you mean DWL-6510 or DWL-G510?
I have some comments for the last one; if it is not your PCI-card, I hope the solution is alike, at least.
My PCI-card is G510 version C and I recently posted a comment on a certain Internet Forum. See what I wrote:

First of all: D-Link simply mistreated all the costumers who bought version Cx.
The best thing to do:
1- Get the latest drivers from Australia site - www.dlink.com.au - (look for SUPPORT and not "quick find").
2- Specially for Win XP-SP3, try the USA site; you will need to follow this path because the update file is very hidden on the site: click support / FAQ / search for "G510 SP3" and see the answer for the only question that is there (so far); download the newest driver for SP3; this driver has no installer; you will have to use it as an update if you have already a driver installed (click "properties" and "update driver" on the device located at control panel / system / hardware); if you have no driver already istalled, you will have to do the opposite of DLink directions: install phisically the card before installing driver, click start / control panel / system / hardware and search for a "?" sign, click on it and provide it the downloaded driver.

Good luck!!
