    I am desperate! I have looked in some 20+ sites and downloaded some 15+ differnet drivers for the dwl 520+ wireless pci adapter, tried to install them but with no results. Most of the drivers I downloaded don't come as a .exe put as a .zip or .rar, and when I decompress them the only executable is for installing a dlink airplus utility. So I install the utility and restart the computer, but now the "wireless bars" have a black X over them, and when I double click it says "no driver load". So obviously no driver was installed, but there is no other .exe.

    Later I try to install the driver through the .inf file (by going to device manager) but when I try to do so a dialog says that the file doesn't provide information about the hardware.

    And after looking for 2 hours I finally find a file that is only .exe file, to find that when I double click on it winzip comes up (it doesn't run!!:mad:), so I decompress it and find the same things I found previously in the .zip/rar files

    I am desperate as I have installed some 15 drivers and still no results. (I assume that I have uninstalled them prior to installing a new one)

    I would like to have a link to working dlink dwl 520+ driver and a step by step process on how the f*** to install the driver. Any help would be be greatley appreciated ;)

    Can you find the card in Device Manager and click on Properties then on Details. Take a note of the PCI and Dev details - usually the first four characters is enough- and input them at this site http://www.pcidatabase.com/ which will give you the precise detail of the device and of who manufactured it, along with a hyperlink, hopefully. You may have upset the system, with so many false starts but with a bit of luck you can uninstall all that after you've found and installed the proper driver.
