Question about D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Windows XP SP3

It seems XP SP3 doesn't play nice with the G DWL-6510. I installed SP3 and got the blue screen. One very informed and technical blog (Jesper's) suggested that SP3 doesn't drive some wireless cards.

Before SP3, though, I was experiencing increasingly frequent wireless disconnects, though my fiancee's laptop with built-in wireless had no simultaneous disconnects, so it's likely not the wireless router we share.

Am I on the right track? Is there a fix for SP3 with this card? Or just get a new card?

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!!

I need the driver for it for xp please


I found the following information on this web page (thank you lincomatic for the write-up!) and updated the information.

"...the DWL-121 - which is not listed on D-Link's website. OmniMedia's support claims that it's a special model that only works w/ OmniFi products ... (yeah, sure, I believe that...) Is it possible to use it as a WiFi adapter for a Windows XP computer? The answer is yes... with the right driver and a tiny bit of tweaking...
D-Link doesn't provide drivers for the DWL-121, and doesn't even have any information about it on their website. When you plug it into a Windows computer, it comes up as an unknown device, manufactured by Inventec. The USB Vendor ID is 09AA, and the Product ID is 3642. Since Intersil's Prism chipset is one of the most popular, I took a guess that the DWL-121 must be Prism-based.
I went hunting for drivers on D-Link's site, and found that the driver for the DWL-122 - another USB WiFi adapter - is called PRISMUSB.sys. Good candidate. After modifying the INF to look for the correct VID/PID, I got the DWL-122 driver to install and it worked! I'm actually posting this article through the DWL-121 right now! Below is the installation procedure:
  1. Download the DWL-122 driver from this page to your desktop.
  2. unzip and open the folder.
  3. Look for the file "NETPRISM.INF" and open it with Notepad.
  4. Press CTRL-H and replace all instances of the string "VID_2001&PID_3700" with "VID_09AA&PID_3642" (copy&paste!)
  5. If you're really anal, you can also replace "DWL-122" with "DWL-121," but this is entirely optional, since it only affects the name of the device as XP displays it.
  6. Save the changed INF file and close Notepad.
  7. Plug in the DWL-121 and when the Hardware Update Wizard comes up, select Install from a list or specific location.
  8. On the next screen, select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.
  9. On the next screen, click the Have Disk button, and browser to the path of the modified INF file, e.g. "C:\Documents and Settings\[yourname]\Desktop\dwl122_driver_102\Drivers" and click Next
  10. Follow the default prompts for the rest of the installation, and you're done!
If you have any more questions or something is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

The device manager shows that the D-link Airplus G DWL-G510 is working properly. I have XP - SP3. But when I try to set up the network, it says that media not connected and ti=o check that the wireless...


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network ?
You are using windows XP computer. and you have D-link adapter.
In case of windows XP computer there is built in utility to connect to the wireless network. and also you have Dlink utility to connect to the wireless network.
It will be better to use the Windows utility to connect to the wireless network.
Search for the wireless network and you will see your wireless network. I believe you have the wireless router.

W200 cause a blue screen


First of all: If you install SP2 you don't have to install SP1 over it. It already did. Secondly, don't install SP3, it destroys Windows XP.
Try reinsalling the PC with SP2, install the drivers and do nothing else, see if that helps.

If not, by all means post back here,
Yannick.

I have xp and seem to have the same connection problem following SP3 updates as everyone else ????


you have two options:

1. set your PC to an earlier date prior to installation of the SP3 update by activating 'system restore' in the control panel. once restored, set your Windows update to custom settings so you can manually choose which updates to install.
2. upgrade to Windows Vista.
