TL-WDN3200 Wireless adapter issue
 
Hi, I just bough TL-WDN3200 Wireless adapter. I am trying to install but when the software has completed installation, the icons on the software are not active.

In the network the Wireless device shows up, and in the device manager too. When in Network Connections I click "Enable" Nothing happens. I have tried disabling antivirus, disabling the default wireless of the Laptop etc. Nothing works.

I am attaching pics. Not sure if it is hardware problem?
Any tips..

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I am on Win7 32 Bit.

Yep I got the same driver.

As for the password, it is not active, meaning that the whole window is blacked out. Basically it is not active and not seeing any connection (wireless). Password etc would be later when connecting to some wireless connection.

Any other thoughts? I did email the support, but, still no reply.

Thanks

Any chance there's a proprietary wireless connection manager for your original (build in) card? If there is, does it give you the option to allow windows to control wireless connections if you right click on it?

Nope, never installed those HP software for wireless and stuff.
Its just controlled via win 7's network.
Grrrrrr !!! SUPER DUPER ANNOYING.
Here is what win 7 says when troubleshooting;

Heh... yeah, the fault detection for network issues has never done anything other than make you sit around for 5 minutes while it does absolutely nothing. :)

Hehe ! Yep, I have never had it resolve anything EVER :)

Hmm got some tips from TP Link support, mostly useless. They advice to check it on another PC ????? Mmm like I have a shop or something :D Now where do I get another laptop...
Anyways seems like it will have to go back to hookbag :(

Don't know if you tried this, if not, please do:

1. Attach tp router to your laptop or another pc via ethernet port
2.open IE browser and type in 192.168.2.1 (or.0.1, or .1.1)
3. set password and configure the rest of the wireless features.
