Question about D-Link / RangeBooster N 650 / DWA-547 / 300Mbps / 802.11n / PCI / Wireless Adapter (DWA547)

1 Answer

I have just bought and installed a D-Link DWA-547 (on Windows 2000 Server) and a D-Link DIR-655.I have about 6 meters and two drywalls between the router and nw-card. The problem: scenario 1: the nw-card has good reception(60-80%) and is connected with 130Mbit. It receives the ip-adress, then 10 sec. later the ip is I renew and reconnect and the same happens again. scenario 2: the nw-card has same reception as above but only gets connected with 54Mbit. It receives the ip-adress and holds it for about 5 mins the releases it. A few seconds later (or sometimes a few mins.) it gets connected again. If i test the speed on the connection I only have about 9Mbit. The DIR-655 works fine with my two laptops and cell-phone. I have updated the software and drivers (but it only got worse). Should I get a DWA-140 instead, should I get bigger antennas or get extensions for the antennas and get them away from the computer or should I just return the nw-card? Hope you can help me. //Patrik

    I talked to the d-link support and they thought it was probably something wrong with the network card. Just got back from the store with a new one one of a different brand hoping that this will solve my problem.

    Yes I read about 20 comments from a site regarding this. 5 of these comments were positive and the rest had some problems. Seems like D-Link has quality issues with this product.

    Yes. For example I tried channel 1 and it connected first with 54 then 300Mbit....for about 10 seconds, then I got ip=

    It could be any one of a number of reasons
    Have you looked here (or wherever the equivalent is for the USA)

  • W.L. Jan 03, 2011

    After more research it seems that many people are not happy with the Dlink drivers, for example see here under product reviews
    I would certainly contact Dlink support before you return the device as when it works it seems to work well.

Does folder sharing work through WiFi?
Might be that the IP ranges are not in the same subclass network if the IP numbers are not coming from the same DHCP server.
Did you check the IP number on Computer B in case of the cabled connection and when it is connected on the WiFi? They should only differ in the last digits, not the first 3 groups.

My PC is freezing randomly and my internet provider is telling me that the DWA-547 is probably causing the problem.\r\nThe following events are showing up in my logs (sorry, text is in Dutch): Event 1001 Deze computer heeft geen adres toegewezen gekregen van het netwerk (door de DHCP-server) voor de netwerkkaart met netwerkadres 0x002401EA0395. De volgende fout is opgetreden: 0x79. De computer zal blijven proberen om zelf een adres van de server met netwerkadressen (DHCP-server) te verkrijgen. 20:47 1002 De IP-adreslease voor de netwerkkaart met het netwerkadres 0x002401EA0395 is geweigerd door de DHCP-server (De DHCP-server heeft een DHCPNACK-bericht verzonden). 18:37 10016 De machtigingsinstellingen (standaard voor deze computer) verlenen geen machtiging aan Activeren (Lokaal) voor de COM-servertoepassing met CLSID {9BA05972-F6A8-11CF-A442-00A0C90A8F39} en APPID {9BA05972-F6A8-11CF-A442-00A0C90A8F39} aan de gebruiker Gunther-PC\Gunther SID (S-1-5-21-147239897-4149134051-2327440689-1001) met het adres LocalHost (via LRPC).

Event 1014 In de naamomzetting voor de naam is een time-out opgetreden omdat geen van de geconfigureerde DNS-servers reageert. Alle boodschappen komen meermaals voor gedurende de avond, ik heb er telkens een voorbeeld uitgelicht. This sounds familiar to somebody ?
