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.

Uninstall that form the computer and restart the computer. You will find found new hardware on the taskbar . Click on the found new hardware baloon. install the device from this wizard. Browse for the cd and install software from here . Restart the computer after that.
Are you using Linksys utility to connect to the wireless network. Switch over to windows utility. What is the error that you are getting when you try to connect to the network ? Click Here for more info
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
