Question about Linksys (WMP54GS) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Annoying bug The wireless network monitor that came with the wireless card (wmp54gs) continually starts and restarts itself on the taskbar. I try to delete this software, and it says that I cannot delete because it is currently in use or that the program is a read-only. It also duplicates itself on the taskbar, but when I go to any of the icons, they disappear. And when I try to uninstall, it says it could not find the specified file.

Re: annoying bug

Its correct what andrew says about removing the offending software( i.e. anything by linksys) - kill the process, get the software off your machine, but you dont need to remove the network card, simply go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager thyen expand the network adapters tree and right click the network card the click uninstall. Once done restart the PC (although it will probably tell you it wants to restart) and when it restarts let it find the 'new' hardware and install the relevant software. It should install the WZC by default as andrew already stated. Good luck PS - i have never came across decent software that was shipped with a linksys product - their hardware is top, software isnt.

Re: annoying bug

The best way to deal with the uninstall is to go to network connections in control panel and go to the network adapter icon and right click and select dissabl, or press Ctrl,Alt & Del and look for the wireless card.exe file in proceses and highlight it and click end process . Then go to add/remove programmes and uninstall the software, or use the cd that you got with the card to uninstall. Remove the network card from the current pci slot and use a different one to install it again if possible. Reinstall software and allow the software to run the network card, but when it is running, right click the icon in the taskbar and there should be a line that appears and says enable windows WZC (wireless zero configuration), this is more stable and will overtake your wireless connection. Re install the software

Wireless Adapter

try inserting the adapter in a different NIC slot. I suggest install the software first before you install the hardware. How? make sure that you uninstall the linksys software before you do it. Restart the desktop, then run the cd first - then it will prompt you to insert the adapter - that's the time that you'll insert the card (make sure you turn off the pc). then restart it, look for the linksys icon in your system tray (bottom right hand) it's a green square icon, right click on it then select open the monitor - go to site survey - you'll find your network there then connect to it.

Hope this helps.

Cannot connect the internet


Linksys has the drivers for your device.


You should have no issues using the driver directly from LinkSys web-site.

Also, just to make sure, open your case and re-seat the card, before installing the drivers.

Let us know.
Good luck.

I am no longer able to connect my wireless router...why?

Hi canuck07,

Here's how to remove the ad-hoc setting (I'm assuming you're running Windows XP):

1) Right-click on the wireless icon on your system tray (right end of taskbar) and choose "Open Network Connections,"
OR go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections.
2) Right-click the wireless connection and choose Properties.
3) Select the Wireless Networks tab.
4) Under "preferred networks," select your network and click "Properties."
5) On the Association Tab, the bottom check-box corresponds to ad-hoc networks - uncheck it.

Hopefully this will make your adapter able to find your network. Please let me know if this doesn't work, or if I can be of any further assistance.
