Question about Computers & Internet

Wireless network. Hi, i've a dlink DWL-G122 which i've been using for soon 2 years. For about 1 month ago i lost my conection to my router, my adapter said that there didin't exist any wireless network up, so i went and checked evrything was okay, so i tried to reboot didn't work then i used cable and ignored my router plugged it right on our modem. 3 weeks later my adapter is completly down i dont know if its my network card (hard to check since its intergrated). Cable to router doesn't work if i look on cmd and type in "ipconfig" it just says "media disconnected". If you have any advice please help.

Hello Linxz

(01) In both cases, are you referring to the same network adapter on the same computer?

(02) Or did you lose network connectivity w/ one adapter initially then switch to using a different adapter (same computer) and now it has failed as well?

(03) If the answer is YES to question (01) (and NO to question (02)), then, it does sound as though your integrated NIC (network adapter) has failed. Since it was an intermittent problem initially and then became a "hard" (continuous) problem, I'm more inclined to believe it is a hardware rather than a software (drivers) issue.

(04) Are you experiencing ANY other issues at all on this computer?

(05) My recommendation is to install a new NIC since it would be impossible or expensive to repair or to replace the integrated NIC.

Please, post back here w/ your answers, observations, what you've tried and the results along w/ any more questions or comments you may have. We are here to help.

Thank you,
BJ @:)

Hi, i have a D-link DWL-G122 wirelesss adapter and when connected after 30 min or less the conection gets lost , what to do?


You will need to contact your ISP - they know your set up - it is all sent to them and they do not care for it - - most likely the ISP you have needs to be told to keep the signal stronger - also you can go into your unit and set a STAY ALIVE setting - please read your wireles ROUTER - it is the signal sending unit - or wireless rounter that is the problem - not the adaptor.

It may also be an issue with a firewall on either computer. If you have McAfee, Norton or Windows Firewall enabled, disable it on both side and try the file sharing again. If it works, you will know that you have to check you firewall rules.

Lost the CD and my wireless receiver wont configure


Try uninstalling the drivers (with the device disconnected) and updating it with new drivers. Then connect it and see if it works.
This site still has drivers for the dwl-g122:

make sure you click the right revision number.

This happens all the time first make sure you download the right drivers for your model for ex: d-link is have D-Link DWL-G122 vs1 or D-Link DWL-G122 vs2 make sure you download tthe right one. If you have Vista make sure you download (VistaBETA) if not download (WinXP, WinME, Win2K) also this product does not work on Mac os! links to look at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=334
