I finally got the G network card to work. However now I am having connection issues with the Dlink DWA-142 USB card. Every 15-20 minutes I lose the connection. I am not sure if this is relevant, but the home network icon in the Windows tray in the lower right hand corner says I am still connected. I am using the software that came with the Dlink DWA-142 to connect. Would using the Network Magic possibly give a better connection. Is that found on the CD that came with the router? I thought the Network Magic was only to set up the router on the host computer.
No, Network Magic is installed on each computer.
See http://www.networkmagic.com for more information.
Once Network Magic is downloaded, make sure to go into Computer Bios and disable the onboard Ethernet Port, especially when using Network Magic's Wireless Network Manager. Also uninstall the D-Link's Wireless Network Manager. You may need to uninstall both at first. Just reinstall the Wireless Drivers for the USB Device.
Now install Network Magic.
It should work, okay.
