Adapter wont connect to 5G network ( or see 2.4 networks)
« on: January 09, 2018, 02:44:00 AM »

HI,

Newly purchased adapter. Attempting to use on Windows 10.

It won't connect any 5g network after putting in the correct password. It doesn't seem to see any 2.4 network.

Connected via USB 3.0. Attempted to use on a laptop, same problem.

Manufacturer:   D-Link Corporation
Description:   D-Link DWA-192 AC1900 Wi-Fi USB 3.0 Adapter
Driver version:   1030.12.526.2016

The wifi modem\router it is connect to is a NetComm Wireless Device.

The authentication type on the router is WPA2-PSK

Anyone got any idea on what to do?

Link>Welcome!


  • What region are you located?

IF you temporarily disable WPA2 on the main host router, does the 192 connect then? Re-enable after testing.

I have my 192 connected to my 5Ghz in Windows 10x64.

Be sure your using the lastest drivers from the web site. And be sure your using a USB 3.0 extension cables if you use any extension cables.

FYI, anyone experiencing connection problems on Windows after updating. Check the in box USB 3.0 cable that came with the 192 adapter. Could be faulty. ::)
