Question about Linksys (WMP54GS) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I have correctly installed the cd, the wireless card. the monitor icon is grey (disabled) not green. The hardware device has a exclaimation mark on it. How do I fix this?
Your problem sound more like a hardware problem.
Check if your wireless card back light turns ON.
If it doesn't you probably have a faulty card. Need a replacement.
If the green light is ON, then there is a conflict with the assigned IRQ address.
To fix this, go to the BIOS, and select the Auto option on the IRQ assignments, so the computer will dinamically assign it.

It is often overlooked during a wireless card setup.
You MUST have an ethernet connection on the PC.
Connect the DSL modem internet line directly to the PC ethernet card.
(NOT the wireless) "I am assuming you are attempting to hook up to a DSL line" This only takes a few seconds for the PC to refresh the DHCP.
The DHCP usually needs to be refreshed and often will fail if you just install the wireless card and software.
You may have to set the router into "bridge mode".
Linksys is pretty easy to work with.
You can also google to find your Router's IP address to change the settings. Be careful in there!
When using Windows, one can release/refresh a machine's DHCP address by opening up a cmd-shell and entering "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew".
A fast and easy way to do this is to use the control panel. Change the TCP/IP setting to configue Manually. Hit apply. Then change back to configure Using DHCP and hit Apply again.
