wifi connect problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have brought a D-link wifi usb drive , and plug into the PC ( the PC has a network card and plug the network cable to connect internet network )

    I tried to reboot the PC , it hangs and take very long time to boot into windows , after unplug the usb drive , it then can be boot to windows , I tried install the official driver from D-link website , the problem not fixed.

    It is wonder that even it boots into the windows , I found the wifi can not auto reconnect , that means the wifi is not auto reconnect after boots into the windows  .

    It is also strange that , if unplug the network cable , the wifi can be connected again.

    would advise what is the error , is it the hardware issue ?

    thanks

  • Hi,

    Based on the information you provided, the first two issues that took a long time to restart the computer and did not automatically reconnect to wifi were most likely caused by third-party wifi usb drive.

    Since our forum does not have an experimental environment or relevant information about third-party products, it is difficult to understand how D-link works. It is recommended that you contact the vendor of third-party product.

    >>It is also strange that , if unplug the network cable , the wifi can be connected again.Regarding this issue, it is actually due to operating systems tend to prefer wired over wireless connections due to bandwidth.

    If you have a wireless NIC and it can establish a connection to a SSID, it is dormant while your wired connection is detected.

    Once the wired connection is broken, the wireless NIC may automatically attempt to connect, often with a new IP address.

    Hope this can help you, if you have anything unclear, please let me know.

    Have a nice day!

    Allan
