2.Why won´t the Power and Link lights light up on D-Link DWL-G630?

Check to see if the D-Link DWL-G630 Wireless Cardbus Adapter is firmly inserted into the Cardbus slot of your laptop computer.

If the wireless card is inserted firmly and the drivers are installed correctly, but the power and link lights still do not light up, please contact D-Link Tech Support at 1-877-453-5465 (free 24/7). Your adapter may be defective.

3.Why can´t I get the advertised speed and performance when in Ad-Hoc mode?

This FAQ applies to 802.11b, 802.11g, and Super G™ products.

D-Link wireless products follow the IEEE 802.11 standards. The 802.11b and 802.11g standards specify that Ad-Hoc mode only needs to support up to 11Mbps. For best results, use an access point or wireless router and set your adapters to Infrastructure (station) mode.

4.Windows XP – Utility won’t load / Black X

Right-click the D-Link bar graph or the D icon in the lower-right corner and select EXIT.

Go to Start > All programs > Dlink > and launch the dlink utility.


Right-click on the My Network Places icon and select Properties. Right-click on the Wireless Local Area Connection and select View Available Wireless Networks. This will take you to the Zero Configuration Utility that is built-in to XP.
