Re: wireless card won't connect to a network

If you're using the WLAN, edit the default profile and ensure that it matches your router's wireless settings

I have this product and Im trying to install it in the computer Wireless-G Notebook Adapter WPC54G

Go to this website on a computer where you can download the drivers. Copy the downloaded file onto a USB drive (thumb drive) and then install the driver from the USB drive onto your laptop before you insert the wireless adapter card into the laptop. After the driver installation is complete, then install the card into your laptop and it should be recognized and after a couple of minutes,should be ready to go.

I have a wireless notebook adapter for my dell lattitude c400

Make sure that you insert the card in before booting up the computer. When Windows 2000 was created PCMCIA cards weren't hot swappable. If that doesn't do the trick, check for updated Windows 2000 dirvers.

You can still update to Windows XP as well. Some computer stores still carry it. Wireless networking is managed much better under that operating system.

Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook... Problem:

Your computer locking up could be a spyware or virus program taking over your machine as soon as you get an internet connection.

Try connecting the laptop to a wired connection and see if it does the same thing.
Run some virus scans from trend micro.

If you can re-install the software for the wireless card. This might help too.

Firefox can freeze your system but highly unlikely from a fresh install.

best wishes.

"WPC54G is not installed"

Those install programs that Linksys uses are terrible. This happens all the time.

You probably can't use the linksys program to install the software on a Windows 2000 machine you should be able to install just the driver you need. I have never used wireless networking on a Win 2000 computer before. Win XP has sotware already built into the operating systems to deal with wireless networking.

Uninstall all Linksys wireless networking software. Restart you computer with the wirless network card install and let Windows search for the correct drivers on the CD.
