Windows 7: Limited WiFi connection after 30-60min

Limited WiFi connection after 30-60min

hi,

Since I installed Windows 7 on my PC I have this issue.
I use a WiFi USB key (D-Link DWL-G132 A3) to connect my computer to internet.

With Windows XP all were working good, but now with Windows 7 after 30/60/xxxx minutes I'm connected i get "limited access - no internet connection". Windows recognized a DNS error, but it was unable to slove it.
I'm solving this problem unplugging the WiFi key for 1 minute, and then re-plugging it. Doing this, the connection returns fine for another 30/60/90/xxxx minutes.

How can i solve this issue? (I'm actually trying the connection with IPv6 disabled and using only IPv4)

I suggest replacing the USB wifi device. It was discontinued in 2007 and has no support for Windows 7.

i'll replace it, maybe with a PCI card.

Can IPv6 protocol cause this issue?

No IPv6 won't cause this issue. The link below explains what IPv6 does.

According to this the G132 adaptor is not compatible with Windows 7.
Windows 7 Compatibility for D-Link DWL-G132 High-Speed 2.4GHz 802.11g 108Mbps USB Wireless Network Adapter: D-Link. Drivers, Updates, Downloads

Although it might be worth trying the drivers I found for the G132 which are made for Windows 7.
Choose where it says External Mirror 1. No guarantees on this.
