D-Link DI-634M Router & DWL-G520 WiFi PCI Adapter

Hello all, i desperately need to get my wife's D-Link DWL-G520 working. I followed the manual to the letter and we get a great signal and can open web pages but once she restarts the PC she gets a constant "Acquiring network address message" on the WiFi icon by the clock and then she can not open a any web pages. Thanks in advance guys and gals. Any help will be much appreciated.

Generally on a wireless connection when you see this, you are failing auth. For testing, disable AV and Firewall's. But you have no need to go surfing when you have no connecton. Then add av and fw back one at a time.

If you are using a cordless phone. Get it as far away as posiable. These can knock you off line.

You way want to do a area scan using net stumbler.

If this if hapening on a wired connection. You may need to clone your mac address of the PC used to setup the service. As well as auth if PPoE.
