    Hi All,

    I have a current network which used the D-Link DI-614+, this is a
    22Mbs router. I have two laptops using an Origo 22Mbs Card Bus. This
    all works fine.

    I'm adding a desktop PC to the network and it has a D-Link DWL-G520+,
    this is a 54Mbs card but claims to be backward compatible, the PC is
    running WinXP Pro and is brand new.

    When set to Infrastructure mode it can't find the network, if I set it
    Ad-Hoc mode it can find and connect to the network but it is unable to
    see the computer it is Ad-Hocing with.

    I've played with every setting I can think of. I've reset the routers
    settings and re-configured it. I've forced the card to use slower
    transfer rates.

    I'm completely lost as to what I can do next, I'm guessing that the
    520+ card is just not compatible with the 614+ router.

    If anyone can offer any advice I'll be most grateful.

  2. Hi

    Try to update firmware on your D-614+ router....it may help. ver. 2.35 I
    think...

    Dont install it while youre on wireless connection, connect to the router
    with an cable before you update the fiirmware

  3. You didn't mention if you're doing MAC address filtering. If you are,
    make sure (double, triple check) that the MAC address(es) are a match
    in the router's configuration. I've spent hours troubleshooting the
    same symtoms, simply because "I just knew" those values were correct
    (Yeah, right!). Believe it or not, I have seen with my own eyes, a
    copy & paste of a HEX address, that converted "88" to "00. You can't
    always trust what you think you know. BTW, this applies to encryption
    keys as well. It wouldn't surprise me in the least, if this turned out
    to be the problem.
