CPU Utilization Maxes Out
« on: August 02, 2007, 10:52:18 AM »

Hi,

I just bought a DWA-652 yesterday to replace my DWL-G650.  (I also picked up a DIR-655, but I haven't installed it yet)  After I installed the drivers and card, I noticed that my system fan kicked on continuously.  I opened Task Manager to see what was going on and my CPU utilization had spiked to 100%.  Where normally the "System Idle" would be running 95-100% at idle, now the "System" process is soaking up all of the idle cycles.

Although the card seems to work fine, I just don't think this is good for the computer (or the battery life!)  Has anyone else seen this occur, and/or do you have any suggestions as to how to "fix" it? 

I'm running Windows XP SP2 on an eMachines m5105 with 1Gb of ram.  I am using the drivers from the provided CD and I am running the D-Link Wireless Manager utility.  Tonight I'll try updating the drivers and perhaps using the Windows XP utility.

Thanks in advance!

Doug

OK.  I updated the driver and switched to Windows Zero Config and the processor is much calmer now - everything is working normally.  Thanks!

Also try updating the drive from the support site. The newer driver may allow you to use the D-Link utility.

I am using Win2kproSP4 and I do not have the Zero Configuration Utility.  I do have the same issue of 100% cpu being used.  I tried v1.3 drivers but no networks could be seen.  So I am trying v1.2.
