Question about Linksys Wireless-G WUSB54G 802.11g/b

1 Answer

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?

No Sata, intermitantly just locks up and reboots on it's own.


Go to bios settings,check Hard disk related option
If you want to install xp then you have to change this setting from AHCI or SATA to Ide

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.

Which is a better processor?


The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?
