This does not work for Windows XP because Setup.exe on the driver CD fails to run (quickly opens a black command window and disappears immediately and samething happens with autorun also). The Linksys WMP54G driver manual, as located in that install CD clearly says that for XP, we should install the PCI adapter at first, and then choose to specify the CD path during the XP's driver wizard. But even that did not not work. If anyone has any clues, please share your experiences. Thanks. -Satya

On the Linksys adapters you have to install the drivers first, then install the adapter.
First, un-install the drivers and power off the computer. Remove the adapter . then boot the computer . Reinstall the drivers and power off, re-install the adapter.when the computer boots up it will find the adapter.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I don't have my user name and password for my wireless network and need it to connect a wireless printer


If you have the CD that comes with the adapter then you can try uninstall Linksys software and install only the drivers of the adapter.

Remove the Linksys Adapter and un-install the Linksys Software from Programs menu. To re-install the Drivers insert the Linksys Setup CD into your CD-ROM drive. When the Welcome screen appears click Exit. Connect your USB adapter to the computer. When the Found new Hardware Wizard window appears, click Install the software automatically (Recommended) then click Next. Click Finish when the installation is complete.Try to connect to the wireless network again. See if that works. You can also download the latest drivers from Linksys website on any other computer. Save it on a Flash drive and transfer the drivers on your computer.

Lost the Driver for Linksys PCI wireless adapter, model wmp 54g


Go to your Device Manager and on the right side look and find Network Adapters. Expand the Network Adapter by clicking on it so you can see your Wireless Network Adapter. If it has a yellow exclamation on it then you need to install the correct driver, if it doesn have that exclamation the it may already have the correct driver. It may also be disabled ( red X) so enable it.

Check the wireless connection properties.On the "General" tab and in the middle look for and find "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" . Highlight it and click "properties". Make sure here that if you have set-up your router to connection type of DHCP that "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are the only ones checked.

Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue


There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!

"WPC54G is not installed"


Those install programs that Linksys uses are terrible. This happens all the time.

You probably can't use the linksys program to install the software on a Windows 2000 machine you should be able to install just the driver you need. I have never used wireless networking on a Win 2000 computer before. Win XP has sotware already built into the operating systems to deal with wireless networking.

Uninstall all Linksys wireless networking software. Restart you computer with the wirless network card install and let Windows search for the correct drivers on the CD.
