Linksys wusb300n causes reboots of my system

I believe my linksys wusb300n is causing random reboots of my system. I am really worried that this being caused by a power overload problem and could potentially damage my system.

I even moved the adapter to a new PC thinking that the reboot problem was being caused by a faulty motherboard... however the reboot issues followed the adapter to the new system and the reboot problems on the old system disappeared.

This seems to happen most frequently under a heavy download situation using utorrent and a number of DL's thaqt could be as high as 1Mb/s cumulative.

I have also seen that use of this adapter causes my Laptops 802.11g connection to kick down to 1Mb/s whereas without the wusb300n in the room the laptops connection is at 54Mbs.

Has anybody else seen this problem? Is there a potential of damaging my system?

Is this adapter a problem for others?

Thanks for your help...

I have linksys wusb300n..i want driver is work in xp but is not works in vista


Hi, if you go to http://www.linksysbycisco.com/UK/en/support/WUSB300N/download then in the 'Select your version' dropdown box, choose version 1.0 > you will then be shown the vista driver download.

To install it you have to go to computer manager (right click 'Computer' - choose Manage), then click on Device Manager. Locate the Linksys WUSB300n adapter in Networkadapters, Right Click it and select "Update Driver Software, then choose "Browse my Computer.....", then choose "Let me Pick from a list......" browse to the location of the driver you just downloaded and extracted, it will say its not vista certified, but if u want to try it, you'll have to accept that*......!!

I found it then works best when the wireless access point is on channel 11.

If you still have problems, i have found that using the driver that windows update finds, along with setting my wireless access point to band: 20mhz (instead of auto or 40mhz) allows my WUSB300N to work - albeit at at only upto 150mbps.

*A Final word of warning however, I am running Media Centre on the Vista machine, and i have a LInksys Media Centre Extender, i found when using the Vista Driver from the Linksys website, whenever i connected the Media Centre extender to the Vista PC, it crashed the Vista PC. :-(
