Question about Linksys Wireless-G WMP54G 802.11g/b

1 Answer

Wmp54gv4 pci driver will not install.

Error during installation is "the data is invalid".

This card was moved from one pc to another. When it wouldn't install, I moved it back and it still works in first pc, so I know the card works.
Tried different slots - same error. Tried disabling WZC - same error.

It took the Ralink driver (rt2500) to get it to work on first pc, and that's the driver I'm using.

Both pc's are running XP sp3.

The first pc (where the card works) uses WZC - not the Linksys monitor. I've tried cofiguring the card both ways to no avail.

HELP!

    Same mobo on both computers?

    No other issues with the computer your trying to use the card with?


  • Mark Egan May 11, 2010

    Uninstall any occurances of the driver.

    Reboot. Make sure the driver is nowhere to be found.

    Follow the recommended installation procedure again, which normally says to install the driver first, before installing the card.

    Reply back what you find, and I will look into this deeper.

Are you using the latest Ralink driver www.ralinktech.com , and, from the docs they provide, they indicate -

Ralink RT61 and RT2500 series miniport drivers require NDIS 5.0, NDIS 5.1 or NDIS 6.0 to operate in Microsoft Windows. NOTE: UNINSTALL OEM PROVIDED PACKAGE BEFORE RUNNING THIS RALINK PACKAGE.

Confrim these instructions have been followed.

You can also contact them.

Sorry I can't provide an exact solution, but this should get you on track, and it's the type of problem that likely only Ralink knows about, if at all.

System do not reconize the PCI card


Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.

The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.

Samsung mobile phone usb problem


When you try to load up the drivers for the device you get an error that states that your data is invalid. Here is the fix as I found it on the web. I wish that I had marked where I found it, but didn’t. Why do I get the message "data is invalid" when installing a device driver under WindowsXP? This error appears to be due to a protection problem in the Windows registry and can occur with a variety of drivers (sound cards and SCSI drivers have been reported). To fix this problem, go to Start, Run... and type "regedit" without the quotes to run the Registry Editor. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ENUM\PCI You will see a number of keys of the form "VEN_xxxx", where xxxx are strings like "1102&DEV_0004&SUBSYS_00011103&REV_04". Under each of these folders will be another folder with a long numerical name. Open each folder and look for the "DeviceDesc" which matches the hardware you are trying to install. Right Click on the "VEN_xxxx" for that device and select 'Permissions' and then tick "Allow" for "Full Control". Close Regedit and then continue with the installation of your device.
