Question about Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop

Installing a network card

I'm having some trouble installing my Linksys WMP54G. I removed the expansion bay and got the filler bracket thing out, but I can't get my WiFi card in - it won't go down.

I've had this type of trouble before with RAM, and there was a trick to it. What's the trick here?

Any and all suggestions appreciated.

    Hmm... there's 3 "teeth" (2 notches) in the wifi card, and only two in the expansion slot. Around one that they have in common, it's pretty tight. It looks light it might be a millimeter or two off. But it goes down past this.

    The place where only the card has a notch looks like it'd fit right in.

    Unless this is the wrong kind of card?

Make sure the slots line up perfectly. It should be pushed firmly and evenly into the slot. Make sure that the metal bracket is not in the way or hitting anything else.

    The slot should line up perfectly. If you have more card than slot, it will not fit. It is possible for a smaller card to fit in a larger slot though but not the other way around. Also make sure that you are not trying to put an AGP card into a PC-i slot or vise versa.

Need XP Driver for Linksys wireless adapter, Model:WMP54G I have downloaded driver from linksys site (Ver 4 and 4.1) it is not working. I think i need earlier driver version. Can u help me? Serial no of my...

Uninstall the driver you are using, and install the one from here:

That'll work in XP and if you want to see if a newer version is available that is compatible with XP, you can Update Driver from the Device Manager and that'll find and install the latest one that still has XP support.

Hope this helps

Linksys wireless adapter not being recognized by 2wire wireless

1. uninstall the WLAN monitor from add/remove programs.
2. restart computer. it should say "found new hardware" (for the WMP54GS)
3. insert the installation CD for the WMP54G, but make sure that you do not install the WLAN monitor. just install the drivers for the card.
Then let windows control the wireless.

How did you fix wmp54g Linksys PCI network adapter driver code 10 problem? I googled on this and got tired. Everyone poses this question, but there was no appropriate solution that works around this...

Try this first:
Shutdown PC. Take adapter out. Boot. Install software. Shutdown PC. Put adapter back in. Boot.
If that doesn't work try this:

Shut down the pc before removing or installing adapter.Uninstall device, uninstall software, remove all oem*.inf and oem*.pnf for Linksys products (searched by keyword "Linksys"). Also one of Microsoft drivers was provided for this so I've decided to change its name. After reboot and normal installation procedure everything works ok.

To delete the necessary files go to and use Netcheck. Easy because this great tool will automatically set-up and install the device for you.
