Re: My wireless card is asking for a passphase 8 - 63
WPA requires an group of alpha numeric sequences for encrypting data between the wireless card on the computer and the wireless access point/router.
These sequences are hard to remember when setting up the wireless Access point/router soa passphase is used to generate these alpha numeric sequences, just use any english phrases such as "I love you 2 pieces", then this can be used to configure your wireless card on your computer.

WPC54g is a wireless adapter. The message that you are getting is the message for the Local area connection. This message has nothing to do with the WPC54G. This message is for the wired connection and not for the wireless connection.
Go to this website on a computer where you can download the drivers. http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WPC54G/download Copy the downloaded file onto a USB drive (thumb drive) and then install the driver from the USB drive onto your laptop before you insert the wireless adapter card into the laptop. After the driver installation is complete, then install the card into your laptop and it should be recognized and after a couple of minutes,should be ready to go.
The problem is that the PCI slot/socket where the wireless adapter is snapped/connected is not not compatible with the adapter. I suppose that the adapter is more more faster than than socket so it can hardly function as it should. I recommend that you return the adapter and get a slower version of the adapter. Make sure that the drivers are properly installed by removing/uninstalling any previous software from the system.
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.
do one thing install the driver of the router card in ur note book by cd is give with the card.after install the driver card restart the notebook then you get the icon in taskbar wireless signal.then after go to linksys router first go the network place right cilk propersities after that u see the local area connection right cilk properties then go for tcp/ip protocol then properties after that u give the ip address 192.168.1.50 and subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 aND DEFAULT GATWAY IS 192.168.1.1 THEN GIVE OK OK OK. then go start >run>type ping 192.168.1.1 then enter after that u show the black screen in that given reply or request time out.if the reply is came then go to internet exlporer in address bar type 192.168.1.1 then enter asking user name and password then give usermane admin and password is admin after then go wireless cilk it then enable the wireless in that you can give the wep key also.
