My daughter reformatted one of our computers. I have installed the drivers and can see dlink in the connections. It shows dlink under network connections and says that it is unavailable. I can't figure out how to fix this. Help!

    Thank you for your suggestion. I did get it working. I tried to delete the problem, but I could not find a way to do that. On the computer receiving the wireless connection- when you click on the computers in the bottom right corner it gave you ways to connect. I had chosen belkin and something else, but when it was changed to default it then worked. I had also unplugged the router and reset prior to that so it may be what made it work. Sorry I don't know this technical stuff.

    Is this wired or wireless? If wireless, are you sure there isn't any WEP or WPA security enabled?

    Also, you may want to reset it by unplugging the router, waiting 20 seconds and plugging it back in

Visible & unavailable means that the wireless security settings are not the same on the recently formatted computer, as on the rest of the network.
Open the wireless configuration for any computer that can connect to the network and copy the security settings (wep or higher) to the unconnecting pc
connect to the router by cable from the non-connecting pc, use the web interface at to read the security settings, and copy the settings to the unconnecting pc

then it will connect

Dlink DIR-600. I'm in an apartment where we're all connected to the internet through a router in another apartment (i.e., there's another router between the Dlink & the Internet). In...

It is pretty strange that only one PC is not able to find and connect to the network. All I can do is give you a few suggestions to check the Network and the PC Settings.
-The SSID Broadcast and DHCP Server should be ON from the router, so that the network/ router would be visible to all the nearby machines and could assign IP automatically.
- Try to move the PC closer to the router and see if it can find the signal (the PC wi-fi card may not be power enough to receive the signals)
- Make sure that there are no obstacles such as concrete walls, metal cabinets between the router and PC. This reduces the signals and the PC fails to recognize them. Based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the router to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the router at the desk level, avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.
- Change the LAN settings of the PC to defaults.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Can't load wua 2340 driver

Here is the correct driver install package, download the zip file to your desktop, then double click the zip file to get to the setup.exe file for the dlink adapter, first it may ask you if you want to remove the driver and all its components, say yes, go ahead remove all previous dlink drivers. Then, after the driver is gone(look in your program list to make sure its gone), doubleclick the exe file again to install the driver correctly, insert your usb adapter when prompted to. You are better off using this dlink adapter with an external base with a usb extension cable so you can mount in by your window(to catch the networks)
I am using it right now (wua-2340), it comes in low, but with a fast download speed even fast enough to stream video or audio.

click on link below(if you can't, copy and paste the link into your IE or furefox, hit enter
the driver date for vista and win xp is from 2008-

Want to use wireless without running cables

Did you load the DLink software onto your computer?If so you have to configure the DLink control Panel to recognize the Internal wireless card in the computer.You may also need to take the wireless card out and restart your computer,then shut it back down and reinstall the card so the computer can recognize the card and reinstall the drivers.If it cant find suitable drivers it wont install.While you have the card out look at the brand and version number and try to download software to desktop to install in case windows cant find any.If you have a cat5 (ethernet) cable you can go hard wired till you get the wireless working.

Hi :)

You have to check correct fitment, if ok. Check the Lan card is disabled in device manager. check for driver and uninstall the driver first and install latest from manufactuers site.
