Won't load software properly

I have a Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G card connected to a dell latitude D600, running windows XP. After I plug the card in and proceed to the next step, Nothing happens. it should be taking me to the "available wireless networks" screen. but it doens't do anything. It stops there. I doesn't lock up it just stops loading. When i try to open the program only part of it works. i can't do anything with it ,all it does is "searching". I had this card on same computer running windows 2000 and it worked fine. what can i do to fix this problem? thanks

    Thanks Rikardo. It worked ! And now I am emailing you near a nice cozy fire instead of a cold dark room. You're the greatest. Thanks again.

    notebook adapter cd only works up and till search starts then cuts out ive had this problem time after time with laptops

    The installation doesn't even work. Trying to install on Inspiron 1100 w/ Windows XP Home. I've used the CD included in the box. I've downloaded the driver from LinkSys. I've re-installed about 10 times, and it always either freezes the OS on install or fails to load the driver. Sometimes it prompts for a file that isn't on the CD. I've seen many people with the same issue... Very frustrating.

Have you chcked if the system recognizes the card and installs the correct drivers?
Otherwise go to the linksys website and look for the xp drivers for your model and instal it?

WPC54G wont install power light is on


The problem is that the PCI slot/socket where the wireless adapter is snapped/connected is not not compatible with the adapter. I suppose that the adapter is more more faster than than socket so it can hardly function as it should. I recommend that you return the adapter and get a slower version of the adapter. Make sure that the drivers are properly installed by removing/uninstalling any previous software from the system.

Need WPA2 wifi connection to my Linksys with Dell D600


The WPA settings on your wireless card must be the same as the setting you configured on your wireless router. This allows your wireless card to communicate with the wireless router.

Dell Latitude C640 get slowly (CPU nearly 100%) when install wpc54g


Well yes and no. Yes you can uninstall the software but then you will not have any wireless connection. Unless you are going to replace it with something else.

Bad Wireless Connection


This is usually caused by a driver glitch. From the device manager, uninstall the drivers for the wireless, then reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the drivers. If the problem persist, the take the card out, clean the connections, and reinstall it. It's located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. If it still won't work, then you need to replace the wireless card.

"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.

WIRELESS CARD FOR LAPTOP


Hi

Your did not provide any info on which card you have or wish to install; USB, PC Card, or internal mini PCI card.

For mini PCI cards, first you have to open up the D600 laptop and install the Hardware (ensure to connect the antenna cables) then power-up and install the software (drivers and utility).

For USB and PC Cards, follow the device manufacture's recommended steps. Generally, for USB devices, the software (drivers and utility) needs to installed first before the hardware is connected.

If you have successfully installed the hardware and software (driver/utility) you can scan, choose and connect to an available wireless access point or wireless ad-hoc setup. This can be done through the wireless manufacture's utility or from Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility. If you use the manafucature's utility, Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility will not work; will not scan or list available wireless network.

Dell D600 - Linksys wireless router/adapter


Seems there is a problem with the Linksys since there is not any lights coming on. Did you plug it into a switched outlet in the wall? Does it work if you plug the Linksys into an outlet in another room?
If you can get it to light up, the way you will access it is through your web browser. Type in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and a login in screen should pop up.

hello!

-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.
