Question about Linksys WUSB54GSC Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter w/ SpeedBooster [WUSB54GSC] (LS-SB54GSC)

Linksys WUSB54GSC Vista Drivers??

I'm using Vista and got this USB adapter. I tried to install, but the installation never went past the part where it tells me to connect the adapter.

I then read that I need to get special drivers for Vista. However, no one ever says WHERE to get them and, as far as I can see on the Linksys website, the only drivers are for XP. Only I've read that they exist. Can anyone help me solve the mystery?

I have just bought a new computer and i am trying to install my linksys adapter to my new computer. it worked fine on the old 1, but is not working on the new 1. I am wondering what could be some problems


The WUSB54GSC adapter had been out of production for a while...the last driver update was for Windows XP in 2008 (for Version 2 devices). You should carefully examine the device to see if it is Version 1 or Version 2, as this is necessary when visiting the driver page.

If you're trying to use the adapter on a Windows 7 machine, and Windows 7 does not automatically install the driver, then you're pretty much out of luck as Linksys does not supply a Windows 7 driver for this unit. They don't list a Vista driver, either, although often XP drivers will transfer to Vista without difficulty.

So...if you're trying to install it on a Vista machine, try downloading/installing the XP driver for your device version...it MAY work. If that does not work, or if it's a Win 7 machine, time for a new adapter.

Most new computers these days (at least laptops) have wireless built-in and don't need a USB adapter. I'm assuming, therefore, that you're using this on a desktop. If so, and you need a new one, very good quality ones can be had at WalMart for around $20. Just be sure whatever you buy is compatible to your operating system. It will be printed on the packaging.

Hope that's helpful.

Why doesn't my Wireless G USB Adapter (version3) work with Windows 7?


What is the exact model number of your wireless adapter?

You may refer to this link for a compatible list of devices with Windows 7.

Also, please refer to this link on how to manually install the drivers.

If you are using the WUSB54GC v3, this will work with Win 7 using the Windows Vista driver.

Below are drivers that you may download from the Linksys website for WUSB54GC v3.
Windows 7 Driver 11/09/2009 Ver.3.00.01(32-bit)Windows 7 Driver 09/11/2009 Ver.3.00.01 (64-bit)

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Error 10 Am trying to install on refurb desktop Have installed and uninstalled and installed again


Error code 10 in device manager means that the device cannot start. This is due to either the drivers are not updated, or the drivers are not recognized by the Device Manager.

Try the following:
- Uninstall and then reinstall the drivers.
- Make sure you have the updated drivers and the drivers are compatible with the operating system of the computer.
- Try to install the adapter to another computer, just to isolate the issue if this is a problem with the drivers or if it is a compatibility issue with the PC.

Please note: WUSB54GSC v1 drivers can also work with Win 7 using the Win Vista drivers.

When I installed my Linksys WUSB54GSC Adapter my computer will not boot up. I have Windows Vista. The computer is new.


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.
