Question about Linksys WUSB54GS 802.11G USB Adapter Wireless-G With SpeedBooster (Retail) (NTUSLSUSB54G)

1 Answer

I have a Linksys Wireless-G Network adapter (WUSB54G S ver 2). When I plug it in to usb, the power light flickers once and goes off. I have tried plugging it in w/o drivers and have tried again with two different drivers and still only get 1 quick flicker of the power light. Does this device sound defective?

    Let me also add that Im using win xp home sp3. Other Linksys adapters Ive used have always had a constant "power-on" light.

    Thanks whitebirch. As we suspected, its junked. I was able to find a way to submit a ? to linksys from the link u gave me and the rep said the light should remain on. Warranty expired 12/08 :( Oh well. It was a freebie from a friend at least.

You may want to download drivers and new updates for this model from the link above. You have to select your version (2) and you'll see the download to your left on the page.

Try plugging it into another USB port.and or another computer if you have one available. Test the USB port with another device to see if it maybe the problem. Also make certain your plugs are snugly in their sockets. But it I think you are right on target with the defective device point of view.
If you ruled out the things listed above...defective.
Hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you

Hello
Win 7 Should supply the drivers or software automaticly.
Try this.
1 Shut down pc.Remove all cables from router including power cable.
2 There should be a reset button in the back of the router hold it in with a pen tip or paper clip for 1 min.
3 Plug power back into router and all cables.
4 Restart pc.
Once pc is started go to control panel/network and sharing center, and be sure your on home netwok.
If you are asked for a wep code from the router.
1 Open up your browser and type in 192.168.1.1 in address bar and hit enter.

username will be admin
password will be the word password

Once in look under security settings and you will find the wep code wich you may need to enter in your adapters setup program.


Im going to leave you a link to your routers manufacturer.

Cannot setup Linksys Wireless BEFW11S4 ver.2


The address is 192.168.1.1. The default for Linksys is to leave the user name blank and type in "admin" for the password. Don't type the quote marks. That will put you in the setup screen. The screen looks a little different from most tabbed screens. About the 3rd row down starting with "Setup" are the tabs. The next line is the sub-tabs; the subtab row changes as you select different tabs.

Cant use wirelless g network adapter with alltell wireless intern


That's not possible, you need one adapter for each of your computers. Your only option without buying more would be to carry your adapter with you and plug it into whichever one you're using. Obviously this would get a bit annoying and it would be impossible to use more than one computer at once. Wireless adapters are pretty much meant to be left in a computer all the time.

Problem connecting linksys wusb54g wireless to internet.


Sounds like you need to reboot the router and probably the cable modem. Unplug both, wait 30 seconds, then plug them back in. It can't hurt anything and it solves this problem 90% of the time.

Can not connect adapter to laptop no installation CD-Rom


you have to install the driver for it to work and i assume that is not the case as you have no cd. Go here to download the driver. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109934&packedargs=sku%3D1134691790190&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0993490190B03 When installed go to the properties of your adapter in network connections, then click on tcp/ip line and then properties and ensure obtain ip address automatically is ticked and press ok. You may also have to use the home network connection wizard if you havent previously to share documents over your network.
