    OK i have the WPC54G v2 network card in my dell inspiron 5100. When i first boot up my computer everything works fine. If i am to leave my computer on for any more than 3-4 hours the internet explorer, mozilla firefor, or netscape will not go to any web address. IPconfig still pulls a dns suffic, default gateway, ip address, and subnet mask. The other computer works fine with it's netgear wirelless card. If i restart my computer it is the same process over again. Once i disabled my card and restarted, then hardwired i have no problems.

    Can someone please help me figure this out. I read the one post about using a different driver but how to install that driver in place of the other one is beyond me. Any help is much apprieciated.

    Thank you

    Oh just to add i downloaded the zip files named "Driver_DWLG650 + AirPlus_Bx_2.02 " and "dwl-g650+_rev_bx_drv_v204" per the other forum.

    ok just an update i installed v2.02 driver for my card and the internet works fine for now but another problem has arose. Now the wireless utility says that the device is not installed yet it still works? Any suggestions?

    I was not able to activate the wireless utility yet. I un-installed it and I control my card through windows. No problems so far.

    My configuration is IBM Thinkpad X31, Windows XP SP1, wireless card is an WPC54G v2 with D-Link DWL-G650+ ver 2.02 drivers.

    I will upgrade to WXP SP2 tonight so I will notify you of my results.

    Well I'm done. My laptop has WXP SP2 and everything is running fine.

    Fisrt I attempted reinstalling Linsys wireless tool but it did not worked as before. This was expected.

    Becuase of this I uninstalled D-Link drivers and removed all D-Link entries from the registry. This got rid of the new advanced seetings.


    At this point I installed linksys drivers and wireless utility.

    For some reason this time I'm not geeting disconnections with Linsys driver (uder WXP SP2) anymore. I think I will continue using Linsys drivers for a while to see how they work.
