you can goto start button, run, then type, msconfig
then startup uncheck if its listed ... that will get rid of the error probly if that doesnt work goto control panel add remove programs and uninstall the linksys program and reinstall it from a cd or download the latest version will probly fix the error
It seems that the adapter is not installed properly .....
uninstall the adapter from control panel >> Add & remove
Reinstall the adapter again by using it on different port ..... thus says linksys...
You can go to Control Panle then Add/remove program double click on it then look for the Linksys software there then just remove it , that will remove the software on your computer and you need to restart teh computer to complete the uninstallation..
There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:
1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.
Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!
If the laptop is XP please do this:
Go to Control Panel>add/remove programs. Look for the Linksys Wireless Notebook adapter, select it, click remove. Keep the notebook adapter connected to your laptop.
Insert the driver disc, do not run the set up.
Restart the laptop, drivers should be loaded automatically.
If drivers were not loaded, go to DEVICE MANAGER, click on NETWORK ADAPTERS, select the Linksys, right click the Linksys, click update drivers.
Start the wizard, select Install from a list of specific location.
You can do this if you have the setup disc or the downloaded drivers on your laptop.
If you are still having this problem you can call Linksys tech support 1800-3267114.
From my experience with stubborn program removals, I go into regedit and search for all instances of the manufacturer name or related terms.
Go to "Start", "run" and type "regedit" to enter the registry.
Reboot system after changes are made. Have access to back-up easily available (how you do that is up to you).
I delete those registery references. This has happened many times when I have uninstalled programs. That has typically corrected the problem. NOTE: please do this carefully, back-up the registry prior to monkeying with it. If you are not comfortable doing this then you are stuck or will need to take it to someone who knows.
