    it not work in my pc now just says cannot find network adapter i run the diagnosits thing and it says no drivers are installed or network cable is unplugged.

    what i have tried
    checked all cables all ok.
    registers the network adapter in device manager and says device is working properly.
    come downstairs on this PC downloaded the drivers for it and installed them upstairs stiill no joy

    when you install a device have to keep track of which usb port you plug it in to cause if you plug it into a different one,the device has to be installed again.

    thnx for the reply guys

    ok for the first comment windows 7 automatically installes the driver when you plug it in. i didnt try the drivers as it already had the drivers installed and it was supposed to be running fine according to device manager when i run the network diagnosits it says its a driver issue but when i run the device manager says driver is working properly.

    for second issue i did install the device again actually what i did was plug it in all four of my usb ports unistalled the network adapeter then plugged it back in the first one again installed it still no joy

    i did a system restore no joy there too.

    last resort i formatted reinstall on windows 7 i think this is a bug in windows 7 for the d link adapter or any adapter were if u unplug ur adapter then plug it back into a diffrent port it messes up
