Now where getting somewhere.

I bet the one adapter is bad.

Just be sure you booted down each time, then booted back up, installing th eadapter when it was supposed to be installed (either before or after boot.).

You might also see what device manage says when the the supposed bad adapter is installed.

Let me know what you find, and do you know how to use ipconfig?

I have just bought a new computer and i am trying to install my linksys adapter to my new computer. it worked fine on the old 1, but is not working on the new 1. I am wondering what could be some problems


The WUSB54GSC adapter had been out of production for a while...the last driver update was for Windows XP in 2008 (for Version 2 devices). You should carefully examine the device to see if it is Version 1 or Version 2, as this is necessary when visiting the driver page.

If you're trying to use the adapter on a Windows 7 machine, and Windows 7 does not automatically install the driver, then you're pretty much out of luck as Linksys does not supply a Windows 7 driver for this unit. They don't list a Vista driver, either, although often XP drivers will transfer to Vista without difficulty.

So...if you're trying to install it on a Vista machine, try downloading/installing the XP driver for your device version...it MAY work. If that does not work, or if it's a Win 7 machine, time for a new adapter.

Most new computers these days (at least laptops) have wireless built-in and don't need a USB adapter. I'm assuming, therefore, that you're using this on a desktop. If so, and you need a new one, very good quality ones can be had at WalMart for around $20. Just be sure whatever you buy is compatible to your operating system. It will be printed on the packaging.

Hope that's helpful.

I bought a wirles network adapter and i inserted the disc and it didnt work then i tried to turn it of and back on and it still didnt work


The disk contains the driver, uninstall the driver, disconnect the device from the xbox.Install the driver first and then connect the device (you should be prompted to do so). Make sure your wireless router sees the xbox.

My acer aspire 4736notebook 1 switch corectly not working.


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

You may want to download drivers and new updates for this model from the link above. You have to select your version (2) and you'll see the download to your left on the page.

Try plugging it into another USB port.and or another computer if you have one available. Test the USB port with another device to see if it maybe the problem. Also make certain your plugs are snugly in their sockets. But it I think you are right on target with the defective device point of view.
If you ruled out the things listed above...defective.
Hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you

Dock wont charge


1 the connection of portable devices, just may not be working, or it could be loose( try pushing it all the way, until it doesn't go down).

2 and if that, doesn't work. Then try finding another AC adapter that has the same energy output.
(when you look at the paper that is posted on the front of the ac adapter, you can two sections INPUT and OUTPUT) try finding another adapter that has the same OUTPUT numbers and plug it into the device.

3 Lastly. If the device is not new, then the battery may be dead, and it won't charge anymore.


try steps 1 to 3 and see if any of those solve your problem.

good day

Wireless card suddenly cannot detect any signals


I would suspect ya adapter.. the ONLY way to sort it is to try it in another PC see if it works.. USB devices seem to be very flimsy and we get heaps of 'em in the shop.. 9 times outa 10 it's the USB device gone weird.. substitution is the only way to isolate the problem.

Issues with new Garmin


Try pushing the reset button and charging again. If that doesn't work I think you've got a defective unit. Contact the seller and sendit back for a trade.
