Wireless msi installation

Hey all, i have been trying to install my MSI USB stick(US54G)and having a great deal of difficulty to say the least. This is what i have done: i followed the instructions in the book. First i plugged in the stick and turned on my computer. Then i put in the the installation CD in (InstallShield Wizard) and followed the steps. However after i finished installing it the MSI wireless LAN icon did not appear on my status area and i still have no internet. I tried installing it a second time but the wizard said the software was already i removed it and tried again but still no icon in my status bar. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Lee

    I have been thinking about my problem over the weekend. Do you think that it is a problem with the USB stick i bought or with the installation software, or with the computer itself?  I've been having trouble with the computer store I'm dealing with and would like a second opinion.
    Thank you for your time,

You didn't say what type of computer you have...but some computers have a switch on one of the functions keys with an icon that looks like a transmission tower with waves coming out of it. (Mine is on my print screen button). When used with the Fn key, this turns wireless on and off. Could that possibly be the problem?

If you're getting this message during the POST and there are IDE drives then chances are you haven't configured the drives correctly.To correctly configure two drives on an IDE channel you need to either: - have one drive set as Master (using jumpers on the back of the drive) and the other as Slave OR - have both set as Cable Select (CS) with the appropriate cable. If you are unsure how to proceed look at your original drive and let us know how the jumpers are currently set.

SOURCE: problems with MSI K8N Neo3 motherboard ethernet adapter

Hi mush187, the SMbus controller is basically your chipset drivers. If for some unseen odd reason it did not install correctly you will not be able to install other drivers. (which seem to be the case). Here is the link to you're board & it's drivers. (click on it).

This is nVIDIA's web site. This is where you need to go in order to download & install the latest chipset drivers.

I understand if you can't get you're network driver installed you can't get to the nVIDIA site. So can you install a PCI network card, (temporarily)? The cool thing about nVIDIA's web site is it will scan your system & suggest the proper updated software.
It's only a suggestion.... In either case the MSI link above will allow you to download the drivers you need.

Good Luck!
If I can be of more service, just ask.

Not much info given here, but try unloading the process at startup by Clicking the "Start" button, select "Run", type "msconfig" without the quotes, and hit Enter. On the "Startup" tab select and remove the check mark next to the startup item that is associated with the solution center. This item may be obvious or you may need to plug a few of executable names into a Google search to find the culprit. OK the removal and restart the computer. Depending on the operating system you will be prompted not to show a notice about changes made. Not to worry, in almost all cases the procedure can be reversed if by chance the wrong item is removed. PC-Professor, good luck!

SOURCE: MSI 875p neo-lsr - startup problem - BIOS froze

Hi there.
Try to clear the CMOS by removing the power cord, taking the side panel off the tower and looking at the motherboard near the battery for a coloured plastic jumper like this >>>>>>
If there is a plastic jumper there move it to the other position and hit the on/off button to clear the CMOS, then put it back in its original position, replace the side panel and power the machine up.
If there is no jumper there you will need to remove the power cord and take out the motherboard battery for an hour to reset the bios.

You can get the LAN driver here >>>>>>

If you need anymore help or advice please do not hesitate to post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I couldn't find a Windows 7 driver for my MSI Wireless Stick US54G. Where can I find one? Greetz

One might be able to use the emulation mode for the older dirver. I don't think that if it doesn't install automatically that there is a standard windows 7 driver for this device because b and g are older technologies as compared to the standard 'n' adapters now available.
