Question about Linksys Wireless-N Notebook Adapter (WPC300N)

2 Answers

LinksysWPC300N I need a driver update for this adapter. There seems to be some kind of conflict with Windows Vista. My computer recognizes it, but doesn't use it. I've tried disabling my built-in adapter but the linksys still doesn't connect. The last time I tried to install it, there was a message that said something about a conflict with Vista. Any solution?

Dear sir/mam, i need some drivers about intel 945dgccr lan drivers for WINDOWS7 how can i get that


Intel's downloads page for your board is here. The board is discontinued, so they haven't updated all the drivers for Windows 7. These are the LAN drivers for Vista, which is all they offer. If Windows 7 doesn't recognize the LAN on its own, you can try the Vista drivers. Sometimes Vista drivers work with Windows 7, but if they don't you will need to use a new adapter compatible with Windows 7. You can get a PCI card and install it inside the case, or get a USB Ethernet adapter which you can plug in without opening the case.

The same scan error too.


Hello,

You have to make sure that the scanner/printer driver is installed on the Vista system. Otherwise, it will not be detected. You can obtain the driver from Canon's download page and choose the one for Windows Vista.

Windows Vista doesn't recognize cable


XP & Vista require different drivers to run hardware devices.
Visit the Vista compatibility site to determine if your hardware is compatible, by clicking here,
or visit the manufacturer's website to see if there are updated drivers and firmware available for Vista that you can download and install.
Another possibility is to visit Windows Update and run a custom scan with the cable attached and see if you are offered a hardware update for your system that would make it work, but this seems unlikely in the case of a cable...
Good luck!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Vaio and micro sd


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since you have verified that the card works (in your phone) and that the adapter works (in another computer), then the issue could very well be with the Sony VAIO VGN-C140G/B. More specifically, the USB ports/drivers. Presumably that the Sandisk 2Gb Micro SD & the adapter were working before and that you are using Windows Vista, pls check your updates that has anything to do with USB. Alternately, you may want to rollback/downgrade the USB drivers and/or seek USB driver update from the Sony site rather from Microsoft.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for your continued patronage of FixYa.

It is possible that the adaptor is not compatible with your version of windows vista, despite what the system requirements for the device say.
