Usb Malfunctions When Connect A D-link Dwl-g122 Wlan Adapter


I'm wondering why the usb malfunctions when i try to connect a d-link dwl-g122 wlan adapter, but works fine when i try to connect a casio digital camera. When the wlan is plugged in, windows gives me the "a usb device cannot be recognised as it has malfunctioned" baloon in the system tray. It's wierd because a couple of hours before it was fine. It's not just affecting a few ports, it's all of them, inclusing the front panel ports. I tried a clean install of windows xp, and that failed.

D-link Dwl-g510 Wireless Card Firmware

I have this issue where my wireless connection keeps randomly disconnecting. I moved into my brothers old room since he has now moved out. He had wireless in his room on his mac and never had a problem. Now i am up here and keep getting random disconnects. I have a d-link dwl-g510. I went to best buy and the guy told me to get firmware for my card since i didn't feel like paying $80 for a signal booster. The d-link website didn't have anything about firmware on the page for this card and i don't really know where else to look (google has not been good to me).

D-link Dwl-g520 Wireless Card Connection Problem

I recently brought a d-link dwl-g520 for my desktop. I have a netgear wgt624 router. My two laptop connects to my router fine, but the d-link doesn't. I have disabled the wep to open up the network. Every time i try to connect to my ssid, it will display no connection , but if i connect to my neighbor's ssid the connection is fine. But no internet neither time. I read in some forum about the d-link utility software and window xp conflict, so i un-installed the software and disable the driver then reboot. No help. Am i setting up correctly? Is there any configuration i need to do?

Basically, i'm trying to connect to a belkin 54g router with my tp-link wn422g wireless adapter using windows xp. I have the latest drivers (downloaded this morning) for the tp-link.

Usb Wireless Adapter Wont Connect

I went to a clients house today, he has a windows xp machine running off a cable modem, and a wireless linksys router. I purchased a netgear usb wireless adapter, with excellent range, i installed cd rom software, and can see the wireless router sending off a signal at 65% bouncing to around 40%. When i connect, it either says limited connection or no connectivity. I reset the router, checked the wep password, etc, still cant get it to work. He says another tech came over awhile back and had the same issue and couldn't figure out why they could not get a successful connection. I to am having this trouble and would like to fix it soon! What should i do? Buy an actual router for his dell desktop to connect to the other router? If so will i have the same issue? What type of problems can this be caused by? And what are my options?

Connect A Linksys Adapter To A Netgear Router

How do you connect a linksys adapter to a netgear router ?

Answer:-

You don't. You connect the adapter to your computer. The brands of adapters and routers don't matter as networks are standards based, not proprietary to any particular manufacturer. Edit: once you've installed the adapter just run the wireless management app and select your wireless network. It does not matter what brand the router is.

Scsi To Usb Adapter

A few times now i've been stuck wishing that i had a scsi to usb adapter so i could image or pull data from a scsi drive. Currently, i just throw an old hba in my pc and hook up the drive that way. The drives are always 68 or 80 pin.google brings up a few hits and it looks like these were popular years ago, but even then they were very slow and most of the time only had 50 pin connections on them. They seemed to be often used with the old iomega zip and jazz drives and only supported usb 1. 1. I'd like to add one to my recovery kit if possible, but i can't find much info. Thoughts?

Usb Charger Adapter

While in my local staples, pilfering the clearance bin, i found an interesting cell phone /wire connector set which had an adapter cable that looked like it might just fit in my kindle. After buying it for a rip-off price of 50 cents, it turned out to be a perfect fit, and it doubled as a usb -> mini-usb connector too. Basically it is an: usb -> miniusb + power adapter that fits into kindle power adapter slot. The reason why usb -> power adapter is better then charging from usb -> mini-usb is that you don't have to goto usb drive mode (which prevents you from reading), when connecting with mini-usb connector alone. This means you can keep reading while charging your kindle next to your laptop via usb port!

As a bonus, it seems this wire is both plentiful and cheap on ebay (or if you're too lazy you can find it in most office-supply/ electronics stores)

http://store. Palm.com/sm-belkin-usb-sync-charger-for-tungsten-e-zire-72-pi-2165159.html

But you can buy them on ebay if you search specifically for:

"Palm zire usb cable". Tons to be had for $4-5 dollars shipped. Make sure you get the zire 72 or tungsten type and not the wrong type of palm cable. Note: though i already scored the belkin version of this cable, i managed to find on ebay a better retractable version for $4. 50:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/ebayisapi.dll?Viewitem&rd=1&item=330200416467&sspagename=strk:mewn:it&ih=014

(Note: still waiting for this one to arrive, but it should fit, and i will update thread if it doesn't fit)

With a retractable version, that means i can charge my kindle anywhere i want, bring a spare charge cable in my pocket to plug into usb, and transfer stuff onto kindle if necessary. This is the specific product i bought for 50 cents (if you want to scrounge around your local staples clearance bins).

Usb Adapter For A 1.8 Pata Drive

I have a dell latitude d420 with a corrupted hard drive. I believe it's a 1. 8 pata drive and it has a ribbon cable connector. At this point all i really want to do is get some of the data off of it and then i will format the disk and re-install the operating system. I am looking for a usb device that will allow me to read the disk as an external usb device. I have one for ide and sata drives and it works great but it's not compatible with the dell 1. 8" drive. A tech guy at a local computer store tell me that he does not think one exists. Does anyone know if there is a usb cable adapter that will support this drive?

Laptop Drive To Usb Adapter

I bought a usb adapter that can go from ide/sata and laptop ide to usb. Everything works great. Except when i hook up the laptop ide drive. It can read/write for about 5 minutes (more like 2), then it shuts down. I'm not sure if it is a power saving feature or what, but it is annoying. I have changed the setting in device manager to "allow the os to shut off device to save power" to disabled with no results. Anyone have a similar experience or solution. Yes, i've googled it many times under different queries with no decent results. I don't think buying a new one would help, as it does work, it's just the power to the hdd stops after a few minutes.

Bluetooth V1.2 Compatible Headset And Usb Adapter

I don't know too much about bluetooth. I'd like to get the logitech bluetooth mobile pro headset for talking on skype. I don't know which usb bluetooth adapter to get for it. I'm using windows xp but, it would be nice to get one that's linux compatible too. I'm guessing that the adapter should be bluetooth v1. 2 compatible. What's the diff between v1. 1 and v1. 2?

Usb Adapter To Bypass Audio Port

Some time back, i was for some reason or other using a male-to-female audio plug adapter that went between my headphones into my computer's audio port. Unfortunately this adapter had the quirk that the metal part of the male plug was made of a cylinder and a separate end bit which plugged loosely into the cylinder, and was easily broken off. Sure enough, it broke off - while in the computer's audio port. And there it has remained since, wedged in there, nearly impossible to move. Since the end bit is stuck right in the back of the audio port as it would be in normal usage, but slanted, it actually works almost properly. I can use the cylindrical part of the male adapter plug to touch the back of the end bit, and the right channel of the headphones works fine. If i don't plug the headphones into the adapter quite right, i can get the right channel to be repeated, mono-style, in the left channel of the headphones as well. This is actually a stable and working solution, but i'd like to be able to hear in stereo once again. Solution:

To be able to do that, either i have to get the thinnest, flattest pliers in the world and try to pull the end bit out (the accessible part is a fairly small, theoretically grippable cylinder), or i have to find a way to bypass the audio port, preferably using a usb adapter into which i can plug the headphones directly. This computer isn't exactly a new model so i'm hoping for a cheap but good solution; i've done some researching and such adapters seem to cost $100 or more, which is crazy. I'm hoping for a cheaper bypass. But even with such a part, the computer would need to use the usb port instead of the audio port, and i have no idea how to make that happen. Any suggestions?
