Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)
I have a compaq presario 1500 pp2150. I am trying to install a linksys wireless g wpc54gs notebook adapter. I installed the driver cd and when it says to insert the card the computer locks up. Please help me.
This is an issue that is commonly happeniong with this model, due to the fact that the main chipset was made from a diff manufacturer as compared to other linksys products. Here is what i would suggst you do:
1. Right click on my computer icon>select properties>Hardware>Device manager
2. The adaptor in question will def either turn up with a yellow question mark or a yellow circled black exclamation mark. Depending on the error code (erorr code 10 or 28, usually these 2 occur), double click the icon and select update driver.
3. When the computer asks if it should search for the necessary file (on win XP), click on the option whereby it allows you to install the driver youself.
4. Once that is done, if you have the driver (obtainable from linksys.com) on your PC, just point the tool to the .inf (there should be 3, including autoplay.inf, which you dont need for the driver installation) file in the folder and select both drivers.
5. restart computer.
It should be working fine now. Please do not hesistate to reach me for alternative solutions if this does not work out. Thanks.
