Question about Linksys Wireless-G WUSB54G 802.11g/b

5 Answers

Would like to install the adapter on a vista 64 bit pc

I have been using the adapter on windows xp with no problem but now wants to use it on a vista machine, adapter is ver 2.1.

It seems like the software which came with it would do nothing on vista 64 bit. Please help with some instructions.

Thanks
Gus

  1. Go to Ralink Windows Driver and download the RT61 PCI/mPCI/CB driver for Vista X86/X64
  2. Extract and run the Setup program which will take about 5 minutes to complete
  3. Click Finish to complete the RT6x Wireless LAN Card Setup
  4. Open the Windows Device Manager
  5. Right-Click on the Network Controller under 'Other devices', and select Properties
  6. Select the Driver tab and click on 'Update Driver' button
  7. On the upcoming screen, select 'Browse my computer for driver software'
  8. I am not 100% sure if it's necessary to browse to the VistaX64 folder before you continue, but just to be safe here, browse to the VistaX64 folder (in my case it was installed at C:\Program Files (x86)\RALINK\RT6x Wireless LAN Card\Installer\VISTAX64), and then select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
  9. On the upcoming screen, select 'Network Adapters' and click Next
  10. Now comes the part where you may have to try different Ralink drivers using trial-and-error. Select 'Ralink Technology, Inc.' under the Manufacturer listbox, and try out some of the Network Adapters which will appear in the right listbox. In my case, the 'Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN Card' did the job. If you selected a non-working driver, you will get the typical 'Device cannot be started error (Error 10)'. If you selected a working driver, the driver will successfully install. As I said above, I have a WMP54GV4 wireless PCI card, and the Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN Card driver worked for me.

    A couple of other tips to add: If you don't find the correct driver right away (you get an Error 10 Code), be sure you go back and uninstall the incorrect driver. Then click on Actions, select Detect Hardware Changes, and you'll get back to your original Device Manager configuration with the Network Controller listed again under Other Devices. (When you install an incorrect driver, it will show up under Network Adapters and the original detection under Other Devices will go away.)

Looks like linksys website is down right now. Once it does come up go to the support section and get the drivers using the WUSB54G section. They should be available for your device if it isn't on the cd you were given when you purchased the unit.

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Need working Windows 7 driver for Linksys WUSB54G V.1.0 Adapter


This driver should work with Vista, and based on the FAQ it should work with 64-bit although it wasn't designed for the 64-bit OS.

If the link doesn't work, let me know. I'll direct you to the download page to retrieve the driver.

Are you running 64 bit Vista?

If so you will need 64 Bit drivers for the device
