Everytime I try to connect using the Linksys WUSB54GSC wireless adapter, it knocks out the entire network and the router just stops working. As soon as I break the connection, the network restores itself and everyone else can use the internet just fine.

You need to Update the Drivers for your Wireless Adapter...Download the Drivers from here

After downloading the drivers you need to unzip the file...After you unzip the file you should un-install the adapter drivers/software from Programs menu...Leave the adapter connected to the PC and reboot your computer...Once the computer is rebooted you should see a message "Found new Hardware"...Select the option Install it from a specific location and click Next, then select Include this location in Search and browse to the place where you have unzipped all the files and select the Driver folder and click O.k...Then click Next and it should install the adapter drivers...

NOTE : This installation doesn't install the software(Linksys Monitor)...

Once the Adapter is installed, Click on the Start button >>> Control Panel >>> Network Connections- Right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon and select "View Available Wireless Networks"- If you see your wireless network in the list, highlight it by 'single' clicking on it- Now click on the 'Connect' button below- If your wireless network is secured, it would ask you to provide the network key- Provide the wireless network key and confirm it again in the confirmation box and click "Connect"...It should connect to your Network and Internet...

But I think that the problem is not with the driver itself, but possibly with the operating system and lingering instances of the device.. make sure you have uninstalled all previous versions of the device software AND the device itself in the Device Manager before reinstalling it..

Disconnect the usb adapter and see if your computer still boots up. If it does, try connecting the adapter on another usb port and see what happens. If your PC will still not boot up using another usb port, try the adapter on a 2nd computer. If 2nd PC fails to boot up when the adapter is plugged in, most likely the adapter is faulty.

My WUSB54GSC network adapter worked Ok for six months but now keeps saying limited or no connectivity. Tried unin stalling and resetting. Hasn't worked - same problem keeps coming back.


If the wireless security on the router is enabled, then the pre-shared key or encryption key on the router and PC should match.

You will need to check the settings on the wireless router to confirm this.
