    You could be missing a driver depending on what they did at the shop. For instance if they re-installed your windows then that would of gotten rid of your special drivers that don't come with windows..that's a USB type correct? Did you get a disc with it to run? that was the driver disc if so..let me know see what I can do.

You'll need to download this software for the card and re-install the driver. You can download the 5MB driver here:

http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WPC54GX_0(2),0.zip

Once you get it, open up the folder, and run the setup.exe file inside. This will put the drivers where they need to go. If it still doesn't work after that, you may need to turn your Windows Wireless Zero Config service on. You can do this by right clicking My Computer, go to Manage, go into the Services menu, and locate the Wireless Zero Config service. If it's disabled or not started, start it and set it to start automatically.

Says my linksy adaptor is inactive. would not go to setup wizard after files downloaded from startup disc.


You can try first removing all the Linksys software from the computer and then after that unplug the LInksys adapter from the computer and restart the computer.when the computer is already up you run again the setup CD and follow the steps again and you can already connect the Linksys adapter before running the setup so the computer will detect it already...

My Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 is no longer working


Try un-installing the wireless adapter, and then reinstall it back. If this does not work, check out the configuration in both the router and in the computer. You will have to connect the computer directly to the router to check out the router's configuration.

It is also possible that the wireless adapter has failed. The only way to verify that is to try another one.

Wireless connection


Possible you did reset the router. Its okay to connect to that linksys network name. But if you want to customize you network name.

MAKE SURE TO USE THE WIRED COMPUTER TO SETUP WIRELESS CONNECTION.
Example : The Desktop computer that is connected to directly to router.


Just follow the steps.

My lap top connecting to my wireless system.


Your computer is not yet connected to the wireless network of the router. Also, make sure that your wireless computer has a wireless adapter installed on it. You may verify it on the Device Manager. If you're using a laptop with built in wireless adapter , make sure that the switch for the wireless connection is on so that it will detect the signal of the router.

Try configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router first by following the steps on this link:
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4585&p_created=1165894972&p_sid=RY2yXS3j&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTAwNiZwX3Byb2RzPTAmcF9jYXRzPTE3MjEsMTcyMyZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PTIuMTcyMyZwX3NjZl9sYW5nPTEmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD13aXJlbGVzcyBzZWN1cml0eQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

After configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router, connect your wireless computer by following the steps on this link:
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4055&p_created=1160185039&p_sid=RY2yXS3j&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTAyNSZwX3Byb2RzPTAmcF9jYXRzPTE3MjEsMTcyMyZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PTIuMTcyMyZwX3NjZl9sYW5nPTEmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1jb25uZWN0aW5n&p_li=&p_topview=1

If you cannot still connect wirelessly, let me know of the following:
- model number of the router
- operating system of the computer
- wireless adapter installed on the computer (built in or external)
- brand of wireless adapter installed
- wireless settings of the router (SSID, wireless security)
