    I just formatted my computer, and the internet was working fine before the format.

    After I installed the d-link wireless card, the internet worked fine-it recognized the available networks and everything. After I restarted the PC, it no longer recognized them... So I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, and it worked fine again. This happens every time I restart.

    Any idea what would be causing this?

    The cause is probably that Windows sucks ass at handling wireless networks (in my experience at least).

    Yeah that shit drives me nuts. It'll detect a network but when I try to connected to it, it'll say "network? what network?" :squint:

    If possible, go into control panel, admin tools, service, and disable the wireless zero config service and use d-link's utility if they have one. If they don't you're stuck using the Windows one. Does the adapter connect via USB? Often pulling it out and plugging it back in AFTER Windows is up and everything has loaded will work.
