Question about D-Link Air DWL-122 802.11b Wireless Adapter
I am using a netgear wireless modem and dlink adaptor. Last night I was playing with my configure preferences on the dlink adaptor as I am recieving tow signals one from my adaptor and one form another wireless network somewhere close (i was trying to remove the other network). Somehow my Dlink adaptor can now see my netgear model and picks up the siglan but won't connect me to it?? I would reinstall but can't find the driver disc...whatshould I do??
I am having the same issues. My D-LINK adapter can't even see the network after clean install. It tells me wireless connection is unavailable and it does not see the NetGear Router even when letting windows handle it. Doing a Connection Wizard it sees nothing. Light is on dongle. I have tested the network with my wireless laptop and it works fine. Used static address after a bit of tinkering. Is my dongle caput!

Hi Sir F,
You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.
A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.
Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
