My D-link DWA-130 says I have an excellent connection, but I get nothing to come up, I use firefox and the yellow triangle pages saying I have no connection comes up. I get the equivalent in Internet explorer. I tried a friends internet adapter and it works fine. also I have tried the command prompts

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

they did not work. The internet also does not come up if the DWA is activated at all, even with the other internet adapter in.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

You have a D-Link DWA-130 wireless dongle.

What do you mean you can't get anything to come up?

I have to ask you what you are connecting to? A router with wireless enabled?

If you are trying to connect to a router, I need to ask you what make and model number your router is.

Also another way to check your Internet, is to go to the command prompt, you can get there by typing cmd.exe in your windows search bar.

Once cmd.exe appears in the search results, right click and choose RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.

Once CMD.exe window opens.

Type netstat then press enter.

This command displays what connections you have to the Internet.

Another command is IPCONFIG /ALL

This will show you what configuration you have on your network adapter along with your subnet mask and your IP address.
