Question about Encore (ENLWI-G) (ENLWIG) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless PCI ENLWI-G2 works for only 30 minutes

Hi; thanks for offering yourself for supporting me. The problem is the following:
I have bought and successfully installed this PCI card in my computer. The problem is that it only works for 30 minutes and after that the only way to bring it back working is to restart my computer. The worst of all is that I am trying to download different games and software, and I can't never finish. I am currently running it with windows XP SP2, with a generally fast PC; if you need to, I may send more specific info, but currently I urgently need a solution. I appreciate any help to my problem, and I hope I can resolve it. Thanks

    Oh, I forgot to say: I have a WEP secured connection, usually with good signal. But the PCI card only reaches 11mbps, while when I used an ENUWI-G2 USB adapter (of encore, too) it never lost its connection, reached the 54mbps and had no problems.

    And when the PCI starts to malfunction, the computer gets stuck for 10 seconds, then works for another 10 secs, and gets stucked repeteadly. The only way to stop that is to disable the PCI card, and then the PC continues to work fine again. The PC has 2 GB of RAM, 300GB of disk space (used 112GB up to now), an INTEL Core 2 Duo chipset of 2.66GHz each, and an INTEL DG31PR mainboard. Waiting for help

    The router is a D-LINK DI-524 (reprogramable), and there are two computers in the same network (both laptops, one with XP and the other one with vista); the second one is next to the router, and it has wired internet, too. It works perfect. And the other laptop is near this one, but with an USB adapter (enuwi-g2); it works more or less: it works also for a short time and after a long time it catches it again. As I said before, when I use another enuwi-g2, the connection is perfect, reaches 54mbps, and never loses connection.

    I hope that is enough; any other tip, you can ask me.

    Hope you can give me an answer to the problem.

    (the laptop with XP, I meant it is near mine)

    it was helpful in speed; now the card reaches 54 mbps with a very good-excelent sognal, but it still disconnects after a time, especially when I use some P2P programs; and I need to download a special doc with it!

    I hope there is another solution for this. But, thank you anyway in helping.

    Even though, I still need another one...

  • lipusal May 12, 2008

    Yeah, I updated it from v 2.01 to 2.04, but the P2P program continues to cut down the whole connection!

    Why is it so bothering? It won't download for more than an hour!

    But the rest is generally O.K., except that it also does lose connection on his own when I'm not using the P2P program. Maybe if I change the channel to another one it'll work fine again (even though there is no other network in channel 3, the one I chose)

    Hope you can help me another time; but thanks again up to now.

    If that's the case look forward in updating the driver and firmware of your router if there;s any update for theme from the manufacturer.

I have just bought a new computer which has no facility for the parallel port plug-in so my 3D software will not work. MIne is a Designer 1 which takes floppy discs. I have bought an external...

Hi Christine,

If I'm following you correctly, your computer lacks a parallel or "printer" port. This port accepts the male printer plug and would look like this:


Most computers have this jack or port, but progress may be pushing them the way of the 5-1/4" floppy disk I suppose - in favor of USB ports instead. If this is correct so far, you have the option of installing an "expansion card" in one of the unused slots inside your computer. Most newer PCs have one or more PCI slots available for expansion card(s). Examples of these cards are network cards, sound cards and you guess it - serial and printer cards. Many of these functions are built into the motherboard nowadays, so there's not too much need for expansion slots - and those supplied seldom are used up.

You can purchase and install a printer card for short money. They look like this:


Some of these cards may be bundled with a 9 pin serial or "aux" port or other function. Serial or AUX port card were popular with external modems and non-usb mice. Both of which have been dying off for some years now. Anyway, it's your choice whether to get just a printer port like the one above or one with additional connections on it as well. They can be purchased for under $10 (more if it has extra functionality). Here's a link to some offered for sale. You'll need to check the available slot type(s) you have in you computer - most are PCI and some offer the older ISA style. Look at the picture below to help identify the slots in your computer:

In the picture above, the three long, black slots on the left edge of the board are ISA slots. The 4 shorter purple slots more towards the middle are PCI slots. The light brown slot to the right of the PCI slots is the graphics port. This slot or port as it is called, is neither ISA or PCI and is dedicated for a video card. This port is usually a PCI Express type slot, but some older PCs may have the slower AGP type slot instead. Prior to that was a very long slot - over twice as long as PCI called VESA Local Bus. These are almost never seen anymore. The earliest video slot was an ISA slot - like those on the left of your motherboard. You're going to be checking for an unused ISA or PCI slot in your computer after shutting it off and opening it up. If both are available, you should opt to buy PCI expansion cards instead of ISA expansion cards whenever you need to install a card - like the printer card shown earlier.

That's it. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Below you will find 2 options to add wireless connectivity to your desktop.
A. USB Wireless LAN
This is the easiest solution to add a wireless connection. Simply connect the USB adapter, install the software it comes with and connect to the wifi signal, once configured.

B. PCI/PCI-e Hardware Wireless LAN
Adding a PCi/PCI-e expansion card requires opening your computer and manually installing the card, then installing the driver/software and configuring the wireless access. These cards typically offer faster speeds and stronger radios to communicate with wifi signals better.
NOTE: There are 2 types of wireless cards in the second link: PCI/PCI-e and Half-Card/Mini-Card. Half/Mini-Card adapters are for laptops only - they will not work on desktop computers!
Both USB or PCI/PCI-e offer excellent solutions to getting wireless access from your desktop. Furthermore, since it can be purchased through, they can ship anywhere worldwide, so delivery to the Netherlands should not be a problem.
If you have any questions, you can always contact Dell's Customer Support by telephone and be sure to give them your service tag number, that will ensure that you get only the parts that match your desktop.

No sound

Try reinstalling the new sound card on the PCI slot. If no success, try the other PCI slots. Still, if no success, there's probably a problem with the sound card that you bought.

System do not reconize the PCI card

Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.
The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.

Your did not provide any info on which card you have or wish to install; USB, PC Card, or internal mini PCI card.

For mini PCI cards, first you have to open up the D600 laptop and install the Hardware (ensure to connect the antenna cables) then power-up and install the software (drivers and utility).

For USB and PC Cards, follow the device manufacture's recommended steps. Generally, for USB devices, the software (drivers and utility) needs to installed first before the hardware is connected.

If you have successfully installed the hardware and software (driver/utility) you can scan, choose and connect to an available wireless access point or wireless ad-hoc setup. This can be done through the wireless manufacture's utility or from Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility. If you use the manafucature's utility, Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility will not work; will not scan or list available wireless network.
