Install and set up a Wireless N adaptor

If you use an older PC and need to use a dongle or Ethernet cable to get online, you’ll need a Wireless USB adaptor to connect to the internet.

Minimum system requirements

  • A computer or laptop with an available USB 2.0 port
  • Windows 7, Vista, 2000 (Service Pack 4), or XP (Service Pack 3)
  • CD-ROM Drive
  • 300MHz processor and at least 64MB of RAM
  • A 802.11n or 802.11g access point or wireless router

To install a Wireless N Adaptor:

  1. Make sure you have the Wireless N Adaptor and the CD.
  2. Plug the adaptor into a USB port on your computer.
  3. When Found new hardware wizard appears, select Yes this time only and select Next.
  4. When prompted, insert the CD.
  5. Don’t go to the D-Link screen; just allow Windows to automatically install the drivers. If it doesn't, select Next on the installation wizard.
  6. Once you see a message saying the hardware's been correctly installed, select Finish.

Now that you're done, you'll need to set up a Wi-Fi connection.
