Windows 7: Realtek 8185 wireless connection problem in w7 x64

well it looks like i spoke too soon. Only a day after posting that the card was now working fine its stopped again...typical!

I wouldnt mind so much as i have a USB ireless device that i can use instead...only this one causes BSOD occasionally (IRQ error somehow).

So yet again im back to the 8185 not working.

It detects a network but cannot connect. The network is working fine for other adapters and PCs. I've tried all available drivers. I've reset the network a piece at a time, turning off pcs, router and modem and restarted.

And now halfway through typing this ive noticed its staring working again after 3 days of not connecting. I did nothing to connect it. In fact i tried to connect 10 mins ago and was told there was en error with my router or access point. This is very frustrating! i now dont want to ever turn off or reset my pc in case it plays up again.

Bruce, you really should try to uninstall drivers/device completely in Device Manager, then let the windows find the 8185 and let it install default drivers from 2006. Then you should give the XP 64b drivers a try!

I got fed up with all the troubles that the DIGITUS netcard have given me for months now. I wrote a long e-mail to my dealer with a complete description of all the things I have tried to make it work. Then I brought the PC to my dealer to have them take a look at it. 3 days later I called them up to hear what they have found out. I got the message that the PC was in a queue because they had a lot to do but it really sounded like they had forgotten about it. On the phone he suggested to just change the netcard to another. After all how much time would he be interesting in working on it compared to a price of less than 50 . So he changed the netcard to a Linksys card and problem is immidiately gone.

So in short ... take that DIGITUS netcard and ram a spike right through the middle of it.

My son is happy with his stable connection and I am happy about that all the troubles have disappeard. It had nothing to do with MAC addresses, radiofrequency on the router, WEP key security, firewall, renewing IPs or anything like that.

Kind regards,
Henrik Berg Andersen

Same problem here. For one week i thought my router was the cause. After i saw this forum by coincidence, now i know that the problem was realtek 8185L. This card contantly confused the router. After i few hours of connection, the router (speedtouch 585v6) resetted or just cut all the wired/wireless connection until i connect/disconnect cable and wireless adapter (2 pc: one wired, one wireless). Now only my sister connect my router's wireless using her laptop for 10 days. No problems. It may be a better option to use another brand/chip.

RTL8187L or RTL8187 AP Mode disconnection Problem

tnx msimango. mine is an RTL8187L or RTL8187. i tried your fix and its almost 1hour already since i did your fix hopefully it works well and doesn't disconnect the other laptop anymore. i got disconnection problems even after updating the driver and application from the realtek site.

what i did with my 8187.ini is i retain a few lines and change everything(can be seen below this). hopefully i don't get disconnection problems anymore and i don't experience the removed settings of ap mode when i restart my computer. i experience that during the old version of the realtek driver and application.

anyway could you pls explain what was the problem with the old ini file. if this has fixed the problem why doesn't realtek release the corrected .ini file. anyway big thanks to you msimango and to those friends of yours, who had discovered the fix.
