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.

Will Wireless pci card pkw-wmp11-v27 driver windows 7 driver work for windows xp


Hi
The following link takes you to the wmp-11 page on the linksys website.
http://support.linksys.com/en-eu/support/adapters/WMP11
The User guide doesn't mention Win7 at all, but since this webpage has various links to details for your kit, I would suggest that rather than trying to use a Win7 driver with XP, download the proper XP driver from this site and use this. It'll probably save time and frustration!!!
Cheers

I have a 3600 DT and want to install a Linksys Wireless PCI Adapter WMP54G. Is there a voltage I need to be sure to buy and where do I find instructions on how to install this?


The PCI adapters are designed to work with the standard PCMCIA slots in laptops. You don't need to worry about voltages. The Linksys wireless adapter will have a driver CD supplied with the wireless card and the installation insructions are straight forward.

Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

Need XP Driver for Linksys wireless adapter, Model:WMP54G I have downloaded driver from linksys site (Ver 4 and 4.1) it is not working. I think i need earlier driver version. Can u help me? Serial no of my...


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
