D-LInk Problems Hi. I had a couple of problems with my D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 a while ago but i ended up fixing those. Now i have a problem with it again. Ok so when i boot up my computer everything goes ok and when the Notification area comes up with the D-link icon it looks like this: as far as i know that means its connected. But it seamed to blink from: The white and red one means its not connected, yes. and when i open my internet browser with my default web page as google.com it comes up with this error: I had the internet working before but now i just don't know what happened. please help me! Here are some screen pics of the utility box that might help: whilst the notification area icon is green... whilst the notification area icon is red and white... PLEASE HELP.

Avoid using the DLink Utility. Use only the drivers and let the windows manage all the net.
In order to do so, uninstall everything about DLink. Do the opposite of what they say: istall the card first. Look for the yellow "?" on / control panel / system / hardware and install it manually by telling to windows where the driver is.
I posted a text in another Forum, about drivers. Maybe it helps:
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!!

Where can i download a config utility for my D-LINK AIRPLUS DWL-G510 ADAPTER


Here is the site for the driver.
http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=DWL-G510&rev=DWL-G510

Dlink does not have a configuration utility for this device, so it may be that there was not one offered. Instead you can use the zero configuration utility with Windows XP.

It also states that this device has been discontinued; the driver is the 1st release driver and has not been updated.

select the DWL-G510 driver to download it, or if you have the h/w rev.2 click the FAQ and select the option for a missing "wlanapi.dll" file. There is an updated driver for this revision on the link to that FAQ resolution. For ease of use it is here:
http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=DWL-G510&rev=DWL-G510_revB

Good luck and I hope this helps.

Ah...found it!

I think that with XP service pack 3, it caused a problem with the wireless card driver.

I just installed the latest driver, and it connected for me without a problem. Here's a link to the driver:

Is there any driver for linux for this product-DWL-G510 Wireless G Desktop Adapter......?if so do i get its source code?


A quick Google search suggests that there are at least three different versions of the DWL-G510 and that Rev B might work with the madwifi drivers. Otherwise, you may want to consider using ndiswrapper with the Windows drivers. I've had good luck with ndiswrapper.
