Question about Linksys WUSB54GSC Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter w/ SpeedBooster [WUSB54GSC] (LS-SB54GSC)

1 Answer

Won't connect to source

We had a power outage. After the outage when I turned my computer on everything worked except for the adapter. When I plug it in it says it is active and the monitor comes up, then it says it cannot associate with access point. When I try to move to the site survey tab, it stops responding, I don't know if some kind of driver got removed or what happened. I don't have the original stuff that came with it because my brother bought and installed it for me. Would there maybe be a way to uninstall and reinstall without having whatever disk came with it. Like a place on the internet that has the drivers or something.

My desk top computer in the house is on-line, the laptop is not. Message says it cannot find any wireless networks - I tried everything listed except turning the broadband connection off - as that must...


Well, actually... it might help to turn the router off and then on again. Sometimes power-cycling the router can reset it, which might need to be done. I'm a big fan of the power-cycle; it works for all sorts of obscure problems.

Once the router is on again, use the laptop and adapter to check for wireless networks. If you still can't find a network, disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of the desktop computer, and try the wireless adapter with the desktop PC. If it works, the problem is with the laptop (possibly a power supply problem). If it doesn't work, the problem is either the adapter or the router.

Ideally you should then try your adapter with a friend's router. Eventually you will discover whether the router is playing up or whether the adapter is faulty.

In my (admittedly still limited) experience, connection problems are rarely about faulty equipment and more usually about incorrect settings, so it might also be worth running the New Connection Wizard from Network Connections in the Control Panel.

Good luck!

How can i get xbox live wirless working after buying the adapter. I have bought the xbox wirless adapter and i am having trouble getting wirless.


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

If it works your good to go!

Hope this tip helps :).

No connections with my wireless on asus g72


It is a hardware problem. The switch on the Asus G72GX is at fault. I own the same machine, and the switch will hard-lock the wifi and will not unlock it. The hot-key will not work either. It took me a very long time to get to the root of the problem. The only solution appears to be to switch the wifi off, power down (restarting didn't work for me), turn the switch on and then power up.

Power outage blew out adaptor?


You can try first to connect the adapter on a different USB port and check if it will be detected if not detected if possible try to connect it on a different computer and hopefully it will be detected but if still no adapter is already dead and needs a replacement and linksys has a 3 year warranty for this one so if its under warranty have it replace, you can contact Linksys via this number 8003267114...

Wireless router doesn't stay on


check the power source.
if the power source is verified to be working ok, try to press the reset button for 30 seconds to a minute while it's plugged in to the power source then turn it off for another 30 seconds then turn it on.
if the problem still persists, there could be a problem with the device itself and if it's still under warranty, replace it
