D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 - problem after installing XP SP3 and new drivers

I had the device working fine on SP2 but then SP3 was installed and I had wlanapi.dll problems. So I downloaded and installed the new driver from the D-Link website. Now when I plug in the device I get the message "Wireless networks detected......to see the list and connect click this message", but when I click it and get the 'Choose a Wireless network' dialogue box it says that "No wireless networks were found in range". I have uninstalled, installed, and tried everything I can think of but still get the same result. The device is ok because it works on another computer running SP2. My son installed SP3 for me and may have made other changes. Any suggestions - I am desperate!

Skype kernel32


Skype v6.6.0.106 is the last version which supports XP SP2. If you try install newer version, you will need SP3 installed, or you will get the kernel32 problem "Failed to get proc adress for getLogicalProcessorInformation (KERNEL32.Dll)".

If you don't want to install SP3 for your XP, here is a work around for you to run Skype with XP SP2.
1. Download Skypesetupfull.exe v6.3.30.105;
2. Uninstall your current version of Skype from Control Panel;
3. Block the website download.skype.com in your router or in the
Host file;
4. Delete any auto downloaded skypesetup.msi in %Temp%
folder;
5. Install Skype v6.3.30.105.
Done.

Apssearchinterface not found


CAUSE
Windows XP SP3 introduces a new .dll file that is named Wlanapi.dll. This file is installed in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. Certain device driver installations for some third-party wireless network adapters also install a Wlanapi.dll file in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. If such a file is installed in this folder before you install Windows XP SP3, the Wlanapi.dll file that is associated with the network adapter is replaced by the file from the Windows XP SP3 installation.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, check the Web site of the wireless network adapter's manufacturer for the latest device drivers that are available for a Windows XP SP3-based system. Then, download and install the latest device drivers for the wireless network adapter. Source(s): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950720

When my pc starts up i get the message :Air GCFG .exe- entry point not found. Then I get a second error message saying Procedure entry point aspInitialize not found in the link library wlanapi.dll


did you update from sp2 to sp3 remove sp3 for one reason
fixed it by going to Windows Defender, Tools - Software Explorer and
disabled AirGCFG.exe from automatically starting at boot.** Now I don't get the error message and
the Dlink NIC card works just fine.
AirGCFG is a NIC monitoring function and the NIC will work without it.
Dlink was advised and reported back that SP3 was still Beta and they may work on the problem after
MS releases the final SP3.
I informed them that they did not know what was what and I would not hold my breath until they fix
the problem.
Found out the problem was due to a new version of the wlanapi.dll file introduced with SP3 that
conflicts with the Dlink monitoring file.

** Note: AirGCFG did not show up in the "msconfig" startup listing. But does show in Windows
Defender, with an explanation of what it does.

It means : SP3 introduced a new wireless lan application programming interface (windows program that interacts with your wireless card/device driver)

solution : check your wireless device or computer manufacturer for updated (works with SP3) driver.

D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 - problem after installing XP SP3 and new drivers


You might have a problem with this one because it is a wirelss B card (10 mbs). Most networks are connected to wireless G(54 mbs). Some networks will allow b and g as mixed signals if the router was setup that way.

Thats one of the reasons why D-Link hasn't supported that card for about 4 years now. They have drivers for it on their ftp server but they probably don't work in Vista as well as SP3.

You should upgrade to a wireless G card. The Actiontec modem can be set for mixed b and g as well.

DWL-G630 WinXP SP3


Hi everyone who upgraded to SP3 or Vista! I just wanted to let you know that I also encountered the same exact problem when upgrading another person's computer, and the answer to your question (which has already been suggested) is to get the updated driver directly from the manufacturer:
http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=3002&orig=1

Make sure you click on the driver for your EXACT model number. If you do not have internet connectivity at all on the affected computer, then dowload the driver's zip file to a portable USB memory stick (or CD, or DVD) on another computer and transfer it to the affected computer that way.

Next, unplug the D-Link.

Next, open the Zip file with the driver and run the setup.exe file. It will uninstall the existing installation first. Then you have to RE-click on the setup.exe file to reinstall the correct driver. If it asks you if you wan to use the Windows Zero Configuration Utility, tell it Yes.

This is absolutely the correct answer/solution. No guesswork involved.
