Dlink DWL120e

By koko122333 ·
i am trying to install it on new p4 3ghz pc runing xp pro. but it doesnt work out. some time i do see the DWL on the device manager, some times dont.
some times with exlametion mark. some times getting an error " no wireless card found" . i downloaded the drivers from Dlink site as they recommended.
also some times when the pc is runing and i connect the DWL to the usb cale the pc shuts off.
then i installed it on old P2 pc and have no problem at all.
is it possible that all the usb ports of the new pc are usb2? or the DWL doesnt support usb2 OR ....
I appreciate any help. thank you

Try to uninstall the dlink software and driver, reboot and install the software again. Now connect the Card to the USB port. If it doesn't work correctly yet, do it the other way round, ie uninstall the dlink software and driver, reboot and then connect the Card to the USB Port. Let the system do all the new hardware discovery steps and then install the software and driver.

It must be a D-Link characteristic.

I had a D-Link ADSL PCI modem that had to be re installed. Did all the uninstall let windows find etc. No go.

Eventually I deleted all references to D-Link in the registry, which then allow windows to find it again.

Registry..

by angelmellores In reply to

I think what happened to your computer is a result of a broken registry situation which sometimes we cannot actually avoid specially when we are using the device and a sudden reaction like power outage which resulted to improper shutting down of the computer, just like what you said after deleting the registry entries which is best thing to do made the computer recognizes the device again.

If you have the same problem and you are not familiar on how to do it manually, you can run a software that can clean your registry.

Hope this helps.
Good luck and God Bless.
