VA-503+ won't recognize D-Link network card

Discussion in 'FIC' started by larrymoencurly, May 20, 2004.

  1. What's been your luck in getting the D-Link DWL-G510 wireless PCI
    netwoerk card to work in an FIC VA-503+ and Windows?

    I couldn't get Windows to recognize the card, no matter how I
    installed or uninstalled the driver software, what PCI slot I used
    (other slots empty, how I configured the BIOS, or what VIA 4-in-1
    driver software I installed -- but only with the VA-503+. With every
    other mobo I have, new and old, the D-Link card installs fine,
    including in the FIC PA-2007, which is older than their VA-503+.

    If you were able to make this NIC work in your VA-503+, how did you do

    in the bios...reset configuration data? to YES- and PnP OS installed?
    to NO

    sometimes this will fix it.

    I had exact same problem with Asus P4B-F (Pentium-II slot 1 MB) and G510
    wireless card. The MB BIOS PnP would not detect card no matter which PCI
    slot I used. The card worked fine in other computer. The box says requires
    32 bit PCI slot. I thought they were all 32 bit. I have never seen anything
    like it.

  6. 98SE (D-Link says 98SE, 2000, and XP are supported), but the card
    works fine with 98 in an Intel 810i mobo and even a 75 MHz SiS mobo
    (that one's so old that it has tail fins).
    Not much. :(

  7. That's wierd because that card worked fine in my Soyo 6BB v. 1.0,
    based on the same Intel 440BX chipset.

    The wierdest incompatibility I ever experienced was with a VIA-based
    USB 2.0 USB card that caused my VIA-based VA-503+ (made by FIC, owned
    by the same parent company as VIA) to act dead. I thought that it was
    caused by the card's use of 2.5V instead of the usual 3.3V (advertised
    as 3.3V tolerant), but it worked fine in an older VIA-based mobo and
    even an SiS mobo so old that it had no DIMM or USB support (the G510
    wireless card was fine in it).

    you have to disable the onboard USB before using a separate USB
    controller card. as for the PCI card, dont let windows look for it, but
    rather manually install it, did you try that ? make sure you got the
    part number exactly right and you have the exact driver. I feel for you,
    sometimes it can be a btch ~
