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.

It seems that your adapter is plug and play since it does not require drivers to work. Check the device status under the Device Manager and see if it was detected and properly installed.

How to got o Device Manager:

1. Right click on My Computer then select Properties
2. Select Hardware tab then click on Device Manager option
3. the adapter should appear under Network Adapters

If the drivers were properly installed PING the adapter to see if it is responding.

How to PING the adapter:

1. Go to command prompt by clicking on start then under accessories.
2. Type "ping loopback" on the space

If you get replies then the adapter is working!

Hope this helps. Please do not forget to give comments to this solution.

Thanks!

I have a Linksys Wireless-G Network adapter (WUSB54G S ver 2). When I plug it in to usb, the power light flickers once and goes off. I have tried plugging it in w/o drivers and have tried again with two...

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

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.

Network adapter


1) The first step you can try by checking from device manager whether its showing the device over there or not. Just click on Start and type there "devmgmt.msc". Under network adapters or in other devices if you are able to see any device which state as network adapter it means its getting detected. If not!!!
2) Check by changing the slot of the adapter and insert it any other slot in your computer..
3) If it still doesnt work then if posibble can check this adapter with any other computer as well

Drivers won't install


Two possibilites here
1. the driver CD is corrupt , though belkin is a plug n play adapter, there is no need to install the cd
2. Since you getting an excalmation suggests , windows recoganises the new hardware but fails to install.
The best option is either change the manufacturer of the adapter or reinstall windows , it should fix your problem

Belkin lost cd


Spend 30 bucks on a new adapter. I have a version 4 adapter that I use as a paper weight for the same reason. I check back and search for solutions about once a month and have spent hours trying to fix a $30 part. How much is your time worth.
