Code 10 with D-Link wireless adapter

Posted on 2006-10-19
Last Modified: 2013-11-09

I have bought a USB D-Link wireless adapter for DELL latitude C600 laptop. I followed the instruction given in the manual for installaion and installed it.

But it is not working fine. Its showing all the wireless networks in the range most of the time and sometime it is showing nothing....I have tried to connect to the wireless networks almost 100 times and got connected only once. Otherwise its not getting connected to network..I tried to check the network and it is sometimes sent and received bytes counts.
I am not sure why I couldn't connect my computer to internet thru wireless..One of my friend in the same house is connecting to the internet(with Built-in wireless) without any problems. Please advise the resolution.

A couple of things to try:

1. Disable firewall see if helps.
2. Reset router. Try default setting first, and test internet connection. Reason to do that to verify the wireless card is working properly.
3. Have you installed utility software that comes with wireless card? try to use that utility to configure your wireless network. First try is to let Windows automatica configure wireless network by select wireless network icon in Network Connection (Start>Settings>....).

Post back, please.
