Is there a Driver for LinkSys WMP54G V4 drive for Windows 7 32Bit?


There is but it is laggy and slow. The latest vista patched driver work's much better surprisingly. Try it out!

It's as if the card isn't even trying to connect right now. It closes with the error report message saying send or don't send but it doesn't say why it won't work.


Since you did not say what operating system you are using it makes it difficult to pinpoint your help.

Let us assume you are using Windoze.

This is a typical windows problem with any hardware. Sometimes the fault lies in your operating system, sometimes the fault lies in your software drivers.

The first thing you need to do is uninstall the hardware and uninstall the drivers. Then restart your computer. Then turn off your computer and reinstall the hardware and the drivers. This usually solves the problem.

If it does not solve the problem,
1. look for updated drivers for your hardware and install the updated drivers.
2. Make sure your windows OS is updated with all high priority updates.
3. Try hardware on another computer to make sure hardware is working properly.

This is something to try:

Download drivers for your wireless device from this website. Afterward uninstall your wireless adapter. Then re-install it using the drivers you just downloaded. That should repair the issue(s), if not let me know and we'll take a look at other possibilities.

Hi,
Uninstall the driver you are using, and install the one from here:

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/OTHER-NETWORK-CARDS/Linksys-Wireless-G-PCI-WMP54G-101.shtml

That'll work in XP and if you want to see if a newer version is available that is compatible with XP, you can Update Driver from the Device Manager and that'll find and install the latest one that still has XP support.

Hope this helps

How did you fix wmp54g Linksys PCI network adapter driver code 10 problem? I googled on this and got tired. Everyone poses this question, but there was no appropriate solution that works around this...


Try this first:
Shutdown PC. Take adapter out. Boot. Install software. Shutdown PC. Put adapter back in. Boot.
If that doesn't work try this:

Shut down the pc before removing or installing adapter.Uninstall device, uninstall software, remove all oem*.inf and oem*.pnf for Linksys products (searched by keyword "Linksys"). Also one of Microsoft drivers was provided for this so I've decided to change its name. After reboot and normal installation procedure everything works ok.

To delete the necessary files go to www.linksys.com/easy and use Netcheck. Easy because this great tool will automatically set-up and install the device for you.

I need to know how to install my Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter v4


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
