D-Link Wireless PCI Adaptor - not found

When installing a new D-Link DWL-G520M, after driver install and then installing the hardware, my Windows XP thinks it has new hardware BUT says it is a new ethernet adaptor rather than a Network adaptor - and then I assume as a result it cannot find the driver to complete the hardware install. I have no idea what is going on? Any ideas?

    I'm having the same issues with my D-Link DWL-G122 adaptor. Multiple restarts, uninstalls, reinstalls, have done nothing. I'm stumped. Any other possible fixes?

Wieless adapter is enabled and found when searched for but will not pick up internet connection


If this is a new adaptor and you are just installing it - you must install the driver sofware BOFORE you install the hardware.

Uninstall the harware, and uninstall the software.

Reinstall the software and then reinstall the hardware.

Reformatted Windows XP does not recognize D-Link wireless adapter


I ran recently across the same problem and solved it by changing the PCI slot where the card was installed... it makes little sense to humans, but apparently make a world of difference to the PC hardware ;)
Assuming you had installed unsuccessfully both Card and Driver you have them (like I did) both on your PC. In such ase, the solution for me was as follows: 1) Turn Off PC 2) Remove the card from the current PCI slot 3) Turn PC back On and remove driver 4) Turn Off PC, remove power cord and wait a minute or two 5) Do not install card yet 6) Turn PC back On and install the driver 7) Turn Off PC remove power cord 8) Install the Wireless card in a different PCI slot THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! Can't be the same slot as where it was installed before!!! Note: If you have none available swap PCI slots or remove a PCI card to free up a different slot for the wireless card... remove a card you need the least and in its place install the Dlink Card. You may want to hold off on installing in a second step the card you have just removed, to be on the "safest" side.
9) Once the card is installed, Power up your PC 10) Once windows will be back up and running the hardware wizard should kick in and tell you that new hardware was found. 11) Follow the on-screen instructions 12) click "Continue Anyway" when XP will warn you that the driver hasn't been signed 13) Installation should be completed after you click Finish at the end of the New Hardware Wizard process 14) Simply go to your wireless networks and make sure all works in order
(I know that this process may sound a bit "anal" in some steps, but I was no longer willing to deal with any possibility of problems of any kind as I was ready to rip that wireless card to shreds!)
I hope this will help those who struggled with reviving an old PC to give to a friend!

I am not able to install driver for D-link wifi card


The card could be bad. I've found over the years that most of these desktop wireless cards work best when the software is installed before the card is installed. Meaning uninstall all the software. Turn off the machine. Remove the wireless card. Turn back on the machine. Install the software. Once installed, shut down the machine. Install the card. Turn back on the machine and lets Windows find the card and the software.

Cannot get drivers to download for dlink dwl-g510


One way to get online is to get a usb to ethernet adapter, then go to the manufacturers website, be it the computer manufacturer such as dell, or the motherboard manufacturer. However, I noticed you mentioned a dwl, are you using exclusivly wireless for this PC? Also, what is the error you are receiving?

Windows XP SP3


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!!

Failure to install D-link Air DWL-122 on Windows XP


I think the D-Link Adapter is a piece of ****. I have tried 3com and netgear and they all work well. Try setting Static Address instead of dynamic. Saying that - I didn't power down either as the instruction manual is totally useless.

Device will not start code 10 message


Code 10 means DRIVERS COULD NOT BE INSTALLED. Try installing the drivers manually.

Do this if pc is XP.
1.Keep the wireless adapter connected to the pc
2:Go to control panel, add/remove programs. Remove the wireless adapter software
3:Restart the computer, when the found new hardware wizard shows up click on it, click NO NOT THIS TIME, then select install from a list of specific location. On the next page Click on DON'T SEARCH, I WILL CHOOSE THE DRIVERS TO INSTALL.

4.HIGHLIGHT NETWORK ADAPTERS on the hardware type, the CLICK HAVE DISC

5.Click BROWSE to set the location of your drivers
6.Open the driver folder, then the pc should copy the files.

Good Luck
