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 v22.214.171.124 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 v126.96.36.199;
2. Uninstall your current version of Skype from Control Panel;
3. Block the website download.skype.com in your router or in the
4. Delete any auto downloaded skypesetup.msi in %Temp%
5. Install Skype v188.8.131.52.
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.
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.
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.
Hi , yes it's a known problem and Microsoft/DLink both has confirmed that.
Please download the updated drivers by clicking on the link. below. AS er your information your router's model no. is the 6th entry on the page.DWL-G630_revE. Download and re-install the drivers.
It will fix the problem
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.
if you managed to get the driver installed, you should get an option to use either windows wireless management or the software that came with the adapter, you may be able to dissable the cards software and use windows own
This happens all the time first make sure you download the right drivers for your model for ex: d-link is have D-Link DWL-G122 vs1 or D-Link DWL-G122 vs2 make sure you download tthe right one. If you have Vista make sure you download (VistaBETA) if not download (WinXP, WinME, Win2K) also this product does not work on Mac os!
