Hello BC, once again I need your assistance.

I have an old Gaming Desktop that cannot connect to my router. I think I need to update the Wireless to support WPA2. I tried downloading the patch here on Microsoft's website: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=662bb74d-e7c1-48d6-95ee-1459234f4483&displaylang=en

I get an installation error stating that "Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system is newer than the update you are applying. There is no need to install this update"

How to I fix this problem?

It is a D-Link AirPlus DWL-G520 Wireless PCI adapter(rev.B). Driver date is 9/3/2004 and driver version is: 3.3.0.1571
(seems old right?)

I really think its a windows update problem. Usually when i reformat my laptop hardrive, the network won't display specific wi-fi in the area. I think that the Windows xp service pack 2 or 3 that i downloaded didn't download properly?

I have some additional info that MIGHT be related (you decide):

1.I cannot access the D-Link Airplus Software installed in my pc, a popup says, "AirPlusCFG.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point apsSearchInterface could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll"

2.Whenever I startup my computer, this popup shows up, "WZCSLDR2.EXE - The procedure entry point apsGetReady could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll"

The only way I can connect to my internet is to make my wireless router be an unsecured network (nobody wants that).
This old gaming PC cannot detect WPA2 wireless in the area. I think it has something to do with an update. Whats weird is that I did a massive windows update and allowed this old PC to download 32 sets of updates (yes thats a lot i know). Maybe a file wasn't properly updated? Maybe I have to download latest driver on dlink wireless device?


Don't make me go to Best Buy's Geek squad! All they do there is make you look like a fool.


Please help. Last time I check, there were 43 views of this post but only 1 reply. I am willing to hear any ideas that can help me understand this problem and help solve this issue.

The forum formatting caused a little hic-up in your post. I`ll make an assumption that your card is a Rev. B
Even though that item has had it`s support dropped as of Feb.01,08 there is an updated driver available for it on the D-Link website. Click on Support Resources > select the proper model. DWL-G520 or DWL-G520_REVB
