Exactly. You need a newer adapter for VISTA. You may use the WUSB54G

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.

Have you had a look on the firewall website for a suitable firewall system that compliments windows 7?
I had to download a new one myself when I went from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

Sometimes changing systems means you should also change your firewall, then you'll have the most up-to-date software going. Plus it won't slow your computer down like it doesn't sometimes.

use your other computer to goto netgear.com look for downloads and find your adaptor. you may have an older adaptor that is not suitable for vista or windows 7. it may need an updated driver. so download the appropriate driver for the operating system to the working computer, and burn it to a cd. then you should be able to run the disk on the new computer. we at charter had this issue when vista came out, our install disks didnt have the right drivers. you just need the right drivers for the adaptor vs operatin system.

Blue screeen with error on RT2500USB for wusb54gv4


Driver problem. Go into control panel and delete the adapter drivers. Remove the wifi adapter Then re-boot. I suspect the BSD (blue screen of death) was a result of a driver problem. If you have another computer that you can get on the internet with, go to the manufacturer website and download a driver. If you can get one, install the driver BEFORE plugging in the device and wait for the install program to prompt you to plug in the device. If you can't download a new driver, try plugging in the device again and see what happens. You need to avoid the BSD.
