Hi,

Often these USB WiFi adapters need their CD to be run first and their drivers installed before actually plugging the USB device. Additionally, it is often required that your anti-virus be momentarily disabled when the installation is performed and likewise when the unit is asked to be rebooted.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If I may add, if for some reason the file might be missing or corrupt in your installation CD, you can download "wlanapi.dll" from here and copy/paste it in you C:\Windows\System32.

    Additionally, this page might shed some additional information should you be interested.

Hello there.

As you are getting this error message the best thing to do would be install the USB adapter with the latest drivers from the DLINK website.

Please click here . The website currently says its down for maintenance but if you check back shortly it should be working normally.

Hope this helps.

Error 211


When getting error 211, you will need to manually install the drivers for the adapter.

Exit from the error message, then remove the CD and restart your computer.

Plug linksys usb adapter, the computer will detect the adapter.

Right-click on My computer then click properties, go to Hardware > Device Manager.

Under Other Devices, you will see 802.11 g WLAN with an exclamation point. Right-click on it and select Update drivers.

Then insert the CD. (If the installation setup screen appears, just exit it.)

Then on the update driver screen, click browse and select your CD-ROM drive.

Then click finish.

If you are using Win 7, follow the steps from this link.

If you cannot open the link, just go to kb.linksys.com. In the search bar type 20873. Answer title: Error 211 - Installing Driver Manually for network adapters to work in Win7.

I hope this helps!

Try this..1.Try to uninstall the USB adapter and re install it again. To do this go to Add/Remove Programs under Control Panel and find the usb adapter your install in this case its Alfa Wireless USB Adapter and uninstall it and restart your computer after uninstallation. 2. Remove the USB adapter while restarting and insert it again until windows already loaded and all windows startup program have all been started.
3. System will look for the system driver of USB adapter and it will prompt you for the driver location in this window do not choose the recomended instead click browse and locate the driver cd and look for driver folder and select the applicable driver for your operating system such as WinXP if your using XP.

I dont know how to connect wireless internet from one computer to another


You will need a wireless adapter for the other computer. You can get an external wireless USB adapter to connect to your wireless network. Simply plug it in and install the software. There will be a tutorial on the procedure which should include how to set encryption to keep nearby wireless networks from spying on you.

If you do not have an unused USB port, you can connect a USB hub to add additional ports or install an internal adapter instead. If your computer has an available slot, purchase a wireless internal network adapter, and then open the packaging and read the instructions. Insert the CD that comes with the adapter in your computer, and follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the necessary software.

NETGEAR WG111T 108 MBPS WIRELESS USB 2.0 ADAPTER stopped working


What are you trying to connect your USB wireless device to?
Is it to a wireless hot spot?
or to a Wireless Access Point/Router?
When you find a connection, what is the signal strength?
I assume you have configured your Access Point correctly as well as making it secure. You should connect a computer to the Access Point using a network 10BaseT cable to check the Access Point configuration, especially the wireless configuration.

If you are trying to connect to a wireless Access Point and you have a weak signal, move your computer closer to the Access Point or move the Access Point to a better and higher location to give you a better wireless coverage. Note, walls can affect the wireless signals between the Access Point and the wireless network card and wireless USB device, especially reinforced concrete walls.

Failed to install


Belkin drivers are a bit of a pain, uninstall the drivers again and remove the usb adapter, and follow exactly as per instructions, normally driver first, but ignore the pop up about the driver not being a signed windows if it does, just click install anyway. toward the end of the installation you should be prompted to connect the usb adapter, the hardware should be found and then the installation should complete. If driver installed ok but the adapter cant find the the driver plug it into a different usb port and again the found hardware should pop up then install driver popup should show and you should select install automatically.
