Problem with installaion of WUSB54G Adaper. computer keeps reboot

I installed the WUSB54G adapter in my new PC (CPU:Duo AMD 5500 with Window XP, SP 2), for some reason windows isn't recognizing my wireless adapter, everytime I plug it in the little dialog pops up saying "Found New Hardware" then gives me another dialog saying "a problem occurred during installation, your new hardware might not work properly". It keeps shuting down the computer and rebooting until I removed the adapter

When connected the adapter to my old PC (CPU:Intel P4 with Window XP, SP2) t woks fine.
I am at loss. Any help is appreciated.

    I am having the same problem with a dell, the wireless device was working fine, I had to replace the small round battery cellin the PC, as it was giving us a low voltage error. Once I re-booted, and plugged in the linksys usb device, it 'found new hardware' then just falls into a reboot loop with the PC. If I remove the device, the PC boots up normally, but once it's pluged in, and I guess trys to read it, all it does is re-boot the PC? very strange.

Normally this means that its either an IRQ or basically conflicting with another device. or there is something wrong with your USB ports. Can you try antoher port on the computer?

Can't get my adapter to connect...XP is stuck with Aquiring a network address.


Have had this same problem. This worked for me. Remove the adapter, uninstall linksys, if it is installed, restart the computer, insert the adapter, when found new hardware comes up, let windows use the install wizard to install the adapter. Sorry to say, i have used this method on 5 pcs and it failed on only one. Let's hope yours will also be possitive. Good luck.

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.

http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WUSB54G_dr,0.exe

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

Computer shuts off/reboots when Linksys is plugged in via UBScord


you may be using the wrong driver for the wireless adapter youre using. pls check or update the driver for your wireless adapter. it is niormal for the computer to reboot after initial installation of the drivers but with your case, you may be using the wrong drivers because the computer reboots whenever you plug it in.

Problem connecting linksys wusb54g wireless to internet.


Sounds like you need to reboot the router and probably the cable modem. Unplug both, wait 30 seconds, then plug them back in. It can't hurt anything and it solves this problem 90% of the time.

Can not connect adapter to laptop no installation CD-Rom


you have to install the driver for it to work and i assume that is not the case as you have no cd. Go here to download the driver. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109934&packedargs=sku%3D1134691790190&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0993490190B03 When installed go to the properties of your adapter in network connections, then click on tcp/ip line and then properties and ensure obtain ip address automatically is ticked and press ok. You may also have to use the home network connection wizard if you havent previously to share documents over your network.

XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation


I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver. Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.
