Hey all, i have a D-Link AirPlus DWL G-520 wireless PCI adapter (rev.B). I have all the drivers installed, but I cannot connect to a network. The network is always available and occasionally (every few days) I can connect to it. There is no password for it. I can't connect to it at all anymore. Any help? My windows has been really destroyed lately and has reverted back to Win XP Pro without any SPs. I also have restarting troubles. So is this wireless trouble from my adapter or Windows? (I hate Micro$oft.)

Hello Col,

To me, this looks like a Malware problem. Please follow the steps located here to ensure your computer is not infected.

Once done, if you're still experiencing problems please do the following:
1. Goto Start, Run, type CMD and press 'OK' - now type: IPCONFIG /ALL - please copy and paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', and then pressing Ctrl+C. Please post the results here.

2. Please goto Start, Run, type CMD and press 'OK' - now type: sfc /scannow (*Note: You will need your Windows CD handy to repair any missing / corrupted files).

(I hate Micro$oft.)

It's rarely an actual fault within Microsoft products; if you were to use Windows/any Microsoft product with only it's default settings (ie: nothing else installed on your computer; no games, programs etc), then you would find that you would not run into any trouble. It's only when you add unknown equations to the factor that Microsoft has a problem.

Nothing worked, so it is not Malware. My windows is still royally screwed though. I cannot connect to the network still. It always shows like it is there, but I cannot connect even though it has no password. I will post my HijackThis log in the malware and see if anything is wrong. Thanks m8.
