Question about D-Link DWA-556 (ASKU58510) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

I installed the DWA556 adapter in my new HP6050z computer and used the D-link CD to setup the connection. Worked fine. But then I turned off the computer and when I rebooted, I get the Windows blue screen immediately. I'm using Win 7. When I talked with the support person at D-link he said it appears that the adapter is not compatible with the HP motherboard.

Hi,

Good day. In regards to your issue, if the d-link support agent told you already that its not compatible with your hp motherboard, you might consider getting a new wireless adapter. Better you can contact d-link again and ask them about a model of wireless adapter that will work fine with your HP computer. Its better to replace your wireless adapter than putting your entire computer in jeopardy. Conflicting hardware might cause instability and might crash your entire system

Hope this help you a bit. Have a great day and thanks for using Fixya. :)

Hello
You might want to try the latest drivers from the main dlink homepage. I took me the liberty to find them for you.
ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwa556/Drivers/dwa556_drivers_140.zip
You press that link and download it. It's in a zip compressed format. So unless windows can unpack it for you after opening it you will need a decompressing tool like WinZip or WinRar
Once you've downloaded it you can follow this quick guide.

When you insert the setup disk on your computer, you can exit from the setup and then connect the adapter to the computer and a new window will popup "Found New Hardware Wizzard" and in that select the option "Install the drivers Automatically" and click on next, so it will automatically search for the drivers and install it on your computer...

I have tried in vain to get the USB connection on my Westell 6100 to work. Are there some tricks to making this happen? The ethernet connection will work fine, but I cannot get the USB setup to work at...


I suggest that you use ethernet connection instead of the USB connection.

Ethernet is more stable that USB, you less likely to experience dropped connections.

Also take note that you can only use one connection at a time. You CANNOT use Ethernet on one computer, then USB on the other computer.

But if you insist to use the USB connection, you need to install the drivers. Once the usb cable is connected to the modem and computer, you will get a found new hardware wizard screen. Then you will need to insert the CD that came with the adapter to your computer.

If the found new hardware wizard did not appear, check your device manager and look if there is a USB adapter with a question mark or exclamation point. Right click on the USB adapter then click reinstall.

It should detect the drivers from the cd.

Good luck and have a great day!

u mean to say, u r using wireless for internet access right.
Well if u r using XP, and if u r having some trouble in accessing internet, then there might some problem with the components of wireless card. so if u want to fix them, u can fix them with a simple trick.
Go to My Computer's Properties
Go to device manager,
open the tab named NETWORK ADAPTER.
u'll see ur wireless adapter listed. select it & select Uninstall.
Dont worry, just continue reading.
when u click on uninstall, u'll be asked whether u r sure to remove the device from ur computer, meanwhile u'll be given a marking space named UNINSTALL THE DRIVER FOR THIS HARDWARE.
Dont remove the driver, simply uninstall the wireless adapter.
Now its removed.
Now restart ur system, after it starts ur computer shows a ballon named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND and it will automatically install ur wireless adapter,
So ur wireless adapter is fixed by now.


and if u r using Vista, its quite easy there.
go to NETWORK & SHARING CENTRE
go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS u'll find 2 connections.
one will be named as Wireless something.
ENABLE it & click DIAGONISIS
after its completed, select RESET ADAPTER
Its done.

Hope it worked u out.

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.

Trouble getting a connection


This adapter's driver is pre-installed in Vista. That means that Vista should automatically see it and install it.
Power down your computer.
take out the D-link adapter.
Power on the PC. Once you get to the desktop, check in the control panel > device manager. It should not be there.
Then power off the PC again.
insert the adapter but in a different PCI slot.
Power on the PC and Vista should see it ans set it up.
The cd would not help you because the D-link Utility does not work in Vista.
I have read the the XP drivers alone would work, But try this first.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

"WPC54G is not installed"


Those install programs that Linksys uses are terrible. This happens all the time.

You probably can't use the linksys program to install the software on a Windows 2000 machine you should be able to install just the driver you need. I have never used wireless networking on a Win 2000 computer before. Win XP has sotware already built into the operating systems to deal with wireless networking.

Uninstall all Linksys wireless networking software. Restart you computer with the wirless network card install and let Windows search for the correct drivers on the CD.
