    Problem installing PCI Network Controller D-Link System Inc AirPlus G DWL-G510

    I'm having trouble installing my DWL-G510. Found some old guides but the links aren't alive anymore and found this one but can't understand it. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/DWL-G510

    Have in mind that i have dual boot machine with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.04.My WLAN card works only in windows 7 and i don't have any internet connection within ubuntu.

    More info:

    Apparently, your adapter seems a common one and a suitable driver module has already been loaded for it. The loaded driver rt61pci used to have problems in the past but I think it has been fixed in newer kernels and is not a problem anymore.

    So at this point, I don't think you need to install any other drivers. The link you referred points to a guide which is rather old (last edited 2008-07-24) and shouldn't be required with 10.04. Although it seems quite easy to follow if so required.

    For now, please tell us the nature of problem you are having. Are you just having problem in connecting to a network, or can't see a network at all.

    Ubuntu isn't able to find the wireless network so i can't connect...
    I can see the wireless networking button up in the screen but there are no networks to connect to.

    Please post outputs of:
    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Besides, when you right-click on the NetworkManager applet in the panel, do you see "Enable Networking" as 'checked'?

    Everything seems normal there. Please post the output of:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlan0
    Can you temporarily connect via Ethernet? If it is a driver problem, maybe an update could fix it. Else we may need to manually fiddle with drivers (maybe including the ndiswrapper option) which I'm no good with.

    And with this, I think I'll take my break for today.

    Hmm.. no dreams, no ideas, hence still no candy for you, but yeah I do still have hope .

    Some more research shows that rt61pci is perhaps still a troublesome driver as well as your card it is associated with. Ndiswrapper also doesn't seem a promising solution, so I think we should try it as a last option. Also, the output of iwconfig is not as normal as it seemed in the first glance, but seems more like a result rather than a hint to the problem.

    So I'm still in search for a clue that I can understand. Please post outputs of:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep rt
    and
    Code:
    lsmod | grep rt

    Re: Problem installing PCI Network Controller D-Link System Inc AirPlus G DWL-G510

    Nothing rings a bell so far. I doubt the quality of signal. So what is the strength of the signal when it is connected in win7?

    Try this as a wild shot (actually I don't know at this point what am I doing):
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
    then wait about 10 sec., then-
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    If this doesn't help picking up a network, then-
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
    There are a few more things we can try, but I need some time to recollect them. Hopefully I'll get some time this Sunday.

    By the way, what was the problem with the ndiswrapper tutorial you mentioned in your first post. It seemed quite easy to me. We may try that if I don't come up with something meaningful tomorrow.

    Am I not replying you? Perhaps this is why.
