Windows 7: D-Link DWL-G510 Rev C (RT61/RT2561) in Win7 x64

08 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7

Hi, label (on box) says H/W version is C2, firmware 5.11 - it says C2 on the card as well, though can't see that right now as it is reinstalled and I'm working on it, through XP

Windows 7

Having identified the problem I searched on "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter" & found a Microsoft forum with this problem. I tried these instructions. Still did not work - I thought it might not because of the reference to Vista, and I have a Vista, now Win 7, laptop working fine on the network.

Having spent several hours to no effect I gave up & reinstalled Win 7 with the G510 card already installed. Initial install picked the card up but did not support it. However, I then installed the Dlink Win7 update & all is now working fine.

But, seeing growing numbers reporting this problem on various network adapters, it seems like there may be a Win7 issue here.

Thank you yorxbrox

I've been having the same problem with this network card. I resorted to reinstalling Windows 7, then installing the Windows 7 drivers. It worked. Many Thanks yorxbrox this issue was driving me nuts! Give it a go people.

Try going to Windows update and see if you can find the D-link update for Windows 7.

Unsure if this is still a topic of issue, but I find it safe to say that D-Link seems to have done their homework. Specific W7 drivers (x86 aswell as x64) are now available, at least for Rev. C.

I hope these will work better than messing with 'em old Vista drivers.
