D-Link AirPlus Driver Problems

Alright so you have a D-Link AirPlus DWL-520+ Wireless PCI Adapter in your computer. You have the driver CD, but no way to get the drivers any other way. Such as downloading them from the D-Link website.

So I have Windows XP, and the driver cd (Version 2.02) for the D-Link card. Start the installation and once it is finished, restart the computer. The probem? The card is still not recognized; Windows XP recognizes it as "New hardware."

So what you have to do now is install the drivers manually. So the in the Found New Hardware Wizard, do the follow:

  1. Select Yes, This time only and click Next.
  2. Select Install from a list or specifc location (advanced) and click Next.
  3. Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install and click Next.
  4. Select Network Adapters and click Next.
  5. Select D-Link AirPlus DWL-520+ Wireless PCI Adapter (not Cardbus Adapter) and click Next.
  6. Finish up the installation.

You should now be good to go with a good, old and retro wireless network adapter.
