I have a notebook with a Gigabyte card in it. Their utility also won't
let Wireless Zero stay active. Maybe it is a function of the reference
software for the chipset (Atheros?).
Because of that problem I used their utility to set up WEP. It worked.
After that I set up WPA and couldn't get the configuration through
utility to work. I ended up disabling the utility and using Windows to
Configure which is working.
I've posted comments here in the last couple weeks. Anyway D-Link isn't
the only vendor with the problems you described above.
