Question about Encore (ENLWI-G) (ENLWIG) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless PCI ENLWI-G2 works for only 30 minutes

Hi; thanks for offering yourself for supporting me. The problem is the following:
I have bought and successfully installed this PCI card in my computer. The problem is that it only works for 30 minutes and after that the only way to bring it back working is to restart my computer. The worst of all is that I am trying to download different games and software, and I can't never finish. I am currently running it with windows XP SP2, with a generally fast PC; if you need to, I may send more specific info, but currently I urgently need a solution. I appreciate any help to my problem, and I hope I can resolve it. Thanks

    Oh, I forgot to say: I have a WEP secured connection, usually with good signal. But the PCI card only reaches 11mbps, while when I used an ENUWI-G2 USB adapter (of encore, too) it never lost its connection, reached the 54mbps and had no problems.

    And when the PCI starts to malfunction, the computer gets stuck for 10 seconds, then works for another 10 secs, and gets stucked repeteadly. The only way to stop that is to disable the PCI card, and then the PC continues to work fine again. The PC has 2 GB of RAM, 300GB of disk space (used 112GB up to now), an INTEL Core 2 Duo chipset of 2.66GHz each, and an INTEL DG31PR mainboard. Waiting for help

    The router is a D-LINK DI-524 (reprogramable), and there are two computers in the same network (both laptops, one with XP and the other one with vista); the second one is next to the router, and it has wired internet, too. It works perfect. And the other laptop is near this one, but with an USB adapter (enuwi-g2); it works more or less: it works also for a short time and after a long time it catches it again. As I said before, when I use another enuwi-g2, the connection is perfect, reaches 54mbps, and never loses connection.

    I hope that is enough; any other tip, you can ask me.

    Hope you can give me an answer to the problem.

    (the laptop with XP, I meant it is near mine)

    it was helpful in speed; now the card reaches 54 mbps with a very good-excelent sognal, but it still disconnects after a time, especially when I use some P2P programs; and I need to download a special doc with it!

    I hope there is another solution for this. But, thank you anyway in helping.

    Even though, I still need another one...

  • lipusal May 12, 2008

    Yeah, I updated it from v 2.01 to 2.04, but the P2P program continues to cut down the whole connection!

    Why is it so bothering? It won't download for more than an hour!

    But the rest is generally O.K., except that it also does lose connection on his own when I'm not using the P2P program. Maybe if I change the channel to another one it'll work fine again (even though there is no other network in channel 3, the one I chose)

    Hope you can help me another time; but thanks again up to now.

    If that's the case look forward in updating the driver and firmware of your router if there;s any update for theme from the manufacturer.

Greetings, I am a technician. However, I ran into a confusing issue with my wi-fi. My Encore enlwi-g v2 PCI wireless adapter worked fine on my Windows 7 64-bit system until I bought a new Smilodon case...

Mike, your problem is so clear and crisp... Thank you for the excellent documentation...

Here is the solution...

The wireless PCI card should be detected by any PCI slots, doesnt matter whatever may be the chipset made off...
The Light in the adapter is "OFF", says there is no power supply to the adapter and that is the reason the Wireless card is not detected...
unplug the adapter from the board and clean the PCI slot on board with a soft brush(the Pins in the PCI slot may get in contact with each other if u use any hard materials to clean)...
On the PCI wireless card clean the metallic contact surface (the place where the pci slot comes in contact with) using an ERASER and clean the dusts left by the eraser properly...
Now connect it back and check if the light is getting LIT up on the card...
Then you can also check under device manager either in Network adapters or under other devices...

Sincerely, Manny...

Windows 7 does not detect Encore ENLWI-SG. Someone has this driver?

If you read the manufacturer's webpage, it says there are no drivers for this past XP. I recommend you try the XP driver, if it works GREAT! If not then uninstall that driver, and go get a WIN7 compatible card...

Can't install encore pci wireless card ENLWI-G2

You need to update the driver from device manager and make sure that you browse for the driver from your installation CD because there are times that windows install its own driver for a device liek a wireless adapter.
hope that helps........
