Toshiba laptop / DWL-G650 : insufficient ressources (code 12) ???

Hello,

I installed a DWL-G650 wireless adapter on my Toshiba Satellite laptop.
It was working fine the at some point I got an issufficient ressources error (code 12) under Device Manager under Windows 2000 (SP4).

1) Does anybody know how I could resolve this conflict/issue ?

PT

PS: For some reason my adapter appears as DE220 under my Network Adapters.

As far as I can see it's a resource conflict.  The BIOS has assigned a resource block to the adapter but something else ended up using those resources later, probably video.

code 12--This error occurs because the hardware conflicts with another device. From the device Properties dialog box, select the Resources tab to view the conflicting device in the "Conflicting device list" at the bottom of the screen. Remove the conflicting device, then re-add the device to see whether that device requests a different, nonconflicting resource. If these steps don't resolve the error, you'll need to manually assign resources for the two conflicting devices.

I suppose you will either, uninstall and reinstall the device, manually assign resources(not fun), or buy a different adapter.
It seems to be localized to Windows 2000 and Intel chipsets.

Try getting the latest driver from the Dlink website http://support.dlink.com , remove the adapter using add/remove programs, remove the card, and start over.  Third times a charm.

Hello,

I reinstalled the latest drivers from support.dlink.com/products for the DWL-G650 hardware revision B2.
Under the Network Adapters, I see the following:

D-Link DE220 LAN Adapter (Legacy Mode)

Looking at the Ressource tab under Properties for this Network Adapter, I find the following:
---
This device cannot find enough free ressources that it can use.
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on the system.
---

The following PCMCIA Adapter is installed on my Toshiba Satellite laptop
O2Micro OZ6933 CardBus Controller

In addition, I have the following processor: Mobile Intel Celeron

1) Are there any know issues with this hardware ?

As far as I read there is an issue with certain cardbus devices, Windows 2000, and Intel chipsets, which is exactly what you have.

Have you tried disabling the LAN adapter in device manager.  There should be a check box to disable in all hardware profiles on the properties page, or right-click disable.  The dial-up adapter may offer the same option.  Maybe that will free up some resources.

Hello,

After a couple of Reboots, I was finally able to see my Dlink DWL-G630 adapter under Network Adapters. However, the status of the device has a (code 10).

When trying to type: ipconfig /release, I got a message indicating that there was no TCP/IP bound to any adapters for the DHCP server.

1) what now ?
2) How can I resolve this issue and get my wireless adapter working again ?

Code 10 is usually the easy one.  It simply means the device driver is not installed.

code 10--Select the Driver tab, click Update Driver, then select
"Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and manually
select the correct driver.

The correct driver will be on your install CD.  Or use the latest drivers you downloaded from the Dlink website.  You will choose browse and find the driver file.  It should be in a folder named Drivers.  It should have been created when you unzipped the web download.  Maybe do a search for it.  The Dlink driver should be something like neta3ab.inf.  A reboot will be required after install of the driver.  Good Luck.

Hello,

What puzzles me is that I when through the driver installation already, when I see my Dlink wireless adapter under my network adapters. So, as you say, I need to update my drivers "again". Ok.

I did some manipulation with the laptop and for some reason under my Network Adapters, I went back to what I had originally:

(!) Dlink DE220 Lan Adapter (Legacy Mode)
(device status code 12)

Not the Dlink DWL-G650 adapter with a device status of code 10.
Furthermore, under a DOS command windows typing the ipconfig command, I get the following results:

- DOS ipconfig: Windows 2000 IP Configuration
- DOS ipconfig /release: Windows 2000 IP Configuration
                                    Error: No adapters bound to TCP/IP and enabled for DHCP

1) How can I resolve these issues and get my wireless adapter working again on my laptop ?

Hello,

I tried to reset my TCP/IP stack using the netsh command as follows:

netsh
netsh>int ip reset log.txt

However, for some reason under the IP interface, I do not have a reset command and this fails and does nothing.

Suggestions ?

I think your leaning toward a replacement card.  

Even though the card is listed under device manager that just means the computer knows what it is, but still needs the driver to communicate with it...that's a code 10.

The code 12 is the computer knows what it is and can communicate with it but its using resources that are being used by another device.  Your card is a pain.

I would try this:
1)goto the driver and tab and choose driver details.  Note(write down) the path of that driver file and then delete the adapter from device manager.
2)Delete the driver file you wrote down.
3)Remove the wireless adapter and reboot the machine.
4)Run the setup program from the CD.
5)Shutdown the computer.
6)install the card and turn on the computer.
7)Allow the computer to install automatically.  If it can't find the driver point it towards the CD drive.
8)Reboot the computer.

If that doesn't work just smash the card with a hammer.  Then go out and buy a Linksys wireless-b adapter.

Easiest way to reset your TCP/IP stack is with winsockfix.exe.  I've used it a hundred times and it always works.

Hello,

I ran the WinSockFix.exe utility but this did not change anything.
I am back in the same situation.

IN addition to my wireless adapter, I also have an Ethernet Adapter:

Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Family Ethernet NIC

That adapter has a device status Ok, but is not working.

As I stated a while ago, you will probably need a different adapter.  Not every adapter is compatible with every combination of Operating System, System BIOS, and System Hardware.

If your network adapter is also not working then it could be your Operating System needs to be reinstalled.  Your problems do not seem simple.  I would start from scratch if it were my machine.

Just to add my support for darkfriend - my D-Link Airplus DWL-G650 wireless cardbus adaptor died with Code 10 and Code 12 errors despite numerous deinstalls, reinstalls and attempting to use McAfee Wireless Security Guard instead of the D-Link application (on Windows 2000).
The trick is to try and install it on another laptop - it didn't work for me, so I got a new adapter card. D-Link again, but the new one works! (Remember to uninstall all the old drivers and manager applications first).

Why thank you, jdkirkwood!  Windows 2000 is tricky.  Codes sometimes don't offer a realworld answer.  Your input is valuable, as in this situation a code 12 appears to be an adapter that does not function.  Thank you for the support.
