D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle Snag
Authored by: rosehowl on Feb 22, '06 09:03:37PM

I've been having a problem with my DWL-G122. Thanks to this amazing Thread, I, who did not feel that hunting down and buying an Airport card for my titanium Powerbook G4 now running 10.4 was worth it, bought this wonderful little device, set it up, downloading the MAC software, and got the thing working.

It worked really well for about a month and then suddenly two days ago for no apprent reason stopped working.

It still opens up the USBWireless program all by itself when I plug it in and automatically claims to connect to my network, showing the little green icon of the shaking hands and claiming to have good signal and all of that BUT when I open a browser, I get nothing.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've tried restarting the computer, using different browers, using my neighbor's unsecure network, manually resetting my IP address, looking specifically for my router (which it can't even find). But Nothing!

I just don't understand why it would have stopped working all of a sudden when it was working just fine before.
