    the problem I have is same. At start the airgcfg.exe and wzcsldr2.exe can not start as the process apsgetinterface and apsinitialize are respectively not found in the dynamic library wlanapi.dll

  • tovt Jul 07, 2008

    The same problem. Just installed SP3. AirGCFG.exe (e.g., when D-Link AirPlus Utility is trying to start) reports "Enter point to aspGetInterfaceCount is not found in wlanapi.dll".
    Can't find any solution at D-Link site.

    I had the device working fine on SP2 but then I installed SP3 and had the wlanapi.dll problems. So I downloaded and installed the new drivers from the D-Link website, but now when I plug in the device I get the message "Wireless networks see the list and connect click this message" and when I click it and get the Choose a Wireless network dialogue box it says that "No wireless networks were found in range". I have uninstalled, installed, and tried everything I can think of but still get the same result. The device is ok as it works on another computer (but running on SP2). Any suggestions - I am desperate!

    I tried all the fixes suggested by people on this website, but nothing worked, not even the new drivers on the manufacturer's website. In the end I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP2. The lesson to be learned is: Never trust any updates by Microsoft.

Hi everyone who upgraded to SP3 or Vista! I just wanted to let you know that I also encountered the same exact problem when upgrading another person's computer, and the answer to your question (which has already been suggested) is to get the updated driver directly from the manufacturer:

Make sure you click on the driver for your EXACT model number. If you do not have internet connectivity at all on the affected computer, then dowload the driver's zip file to a portable USB memory stick (or CD, or DVD) on another computer and transfer it to the affected computer that way.

Next, unplug the D-Link.

Next, open the Zip file with the driver and run the setup.exe file. It will uninstall the existing installation first. Then you have to RE-click on the setup.exe file to reinstall the correct driver. If it asks you if you wan to use the Windows Zero Configuration Utility, tell it Yes.

This is absolutely the correct answer/solution. No guesswork involved.

I've got the problem "this device cannot start" please help me

Best bet would be to install the new drivers off the manufacturers website:

Posted on May 29, 2008

I ran into the same prob a few minutes ago, but found at last a temporary solution. Have a look into the (hidden) folder %windir% \ $NTServicePackUninstall$. There you'll find the old wlanapi.dll, size 228KB. Rename the SP3 wlanapi.dll, size 66KB, in folder %windir% \ system32 and in (hidden) folder %windir% \ system32 \ dllcache
to wlanapi.dll.sp3 -- as an example. Then copy the pre-SP3 wlanapi.dll, as found in the uninstall-folder, to folder %windir% \ system32, reboot, you're done. As far as I had to check out a couple of wlan-related items in such a short time, I couldn't see any inconvenience right now. Try it out for yourself. cheers, Frank.
PS: If you don't have a clue what I am talking about, you should refrain from doing so.

You can try using the wireless zero configuration utility of the computer. The adapter is said to be compatible with XP but there are no releases yet if the software that comes with it is compatible with XP's new service pack.

Setup is unable to detect card however windows

You aren't very descriptive. Either way. I'm assuming when you say Setup, you are referring to the driver installation setup. Delete/uninstall the driver. Unplug the adapter. Now, start the setup. When the installation goes along, eventually it'll ask for you to insert the card, thats when you insert it. It should then work, if you finish the setup. If thats not the issue. Heres a possibility. You are running windows Vista, or running Windows Vista 64 bit, or maybe XP 64 bit. Either way, you are likely using a 32 bit driver, on a 64 bit machine. Or vise versa. If not then you could be using a vista driver on an XP machine and the XP machine doesn't know what to do with it. I suggest going to dlinks website. There are 3 versions of this wireless card, and that also could be the issue. The first one they released is here and that only has drivers for XP and 2000. rev B. Also only XP and 2000. rev C. also again XP and 2000 BUT includes a Vista 32 bit driver. I hope i helped. Not bad for free...

Why cant i connect my dlink

Forget the D-Link drivers!!! I suffered with this same DWL-G630 issue for two years, trying different settings, reloading drivers, all with no solution. My card kept dropping it's connection, or wouldn't connect at all until I removed then replaced the card. Finally, I read on another forum this card uses the same chipset as an ASUS card, and to try the ASUS drivers. I downloaded and manually installed the drivers from here:

Unzip it, but DON'T run the setup.exe file, because it will try to install the ASUS program. If you open the unzipped folder you will find another folder called "Drivers". Just use your Network Settings (from your Control Panels) to manually update the driver of your DLink card, and navigate to the Drivers folder just mentioned. Reboot -- you'll probably have to reconnect to your access point/router one last time, but that's it! It's good as gold after that.

I was used to losing connections 5-8 times PER DAY (I'm 15 feet from the router!) and now I've been connected non-stop for two weeks and counting!!
