Question about Asante AL1611 802.11b Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Fatal Exceptions I installed my Asante AL1611. It says it connects but I can't access the internet. When I reboot the machine it gives me a series of fatal errors so I have to shut down. I'm running Win98. I wonder if the drivers are OK, I've tried to get updated drivers but all the links are dead. The ftp site at RealTek is also dead or at least requires authentication??

    This may well be the case, the NIC is three years old and worked fine in my wife's Win2000 laptop which died. I'm trying to use my old Win98 laptop until her employer coughs up for a proper replacement. Guess I'll have to hard wire it into the lan instead.

    I could get nothing from RealTek at all, no explanation or even acknowledgment that their links were broken.

    Thanks

The best thing about this old Asante AL1611 wifi-b card is that it only protrudes 1cm. I use it mainly for surfing in coffee shop with an old Portege 3480CT (P3-600) XP-based laptop, and its fine. Range is mediocre.

This card is based on an old Realtek 80211b chipset. For both WEP & WPA compatibility you must you update to the RTL8180L driver (version 173) - look for this filename: ndis5x-8180(173).zip on the net.

The mfg/dealer rebate of $10 never came through, so I paid $20 for it back in 2004. If you can get it for about $10 or less and just need basic connectivity, its good for what it is. (from Canada)

Is this a new device? A lot of newer wireless adaptors come with drivers for NTFS based operating systems such as windows 2k or XP. Windows 98 runs on FAT32. I don't know if this will work. I suggest you upgrade your OS.

Cannot access mmy dvd rom


completely uninstall product, reboot system and reinstall. ensure dvd rom is not attached before install.

If the system wont uninstall you need to reinstall software to correct error then uninstall to reinstall after reboot.

install dvd rom after you have correctly installed drivers.

Sometimes an internet update proves fatal with original install.

Automatic updates are not worth carrying out to be honest.

Fatal Error while install software for HP C8180 printer, Vistax64


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SERVICE CALL 188 : FATAL ERROR


Service Call 188: Error: Sub-CPU Communication Error
1- Check the connection of the S2M board.
2- Replace the S2M board.

If the problem does not go away after a reboot you'd better call Oki (it should have a 3 yr. waranty) or an experienced oki technician.
This is not something you should want to fix yourself. The replacement of the s2m board is not an easy task (even for an experienced mechanic)
