Newly set up,router working but no light on at all on the adapter when put into pc,is the adapter broken?

The LED on the adapter may be dead. Since the Router is work you don't have any problem. But if the LED being ON gives you the confidence that adapter is working, take it to an electronic repair to replace the LED on the adapter or buy another adapter.

No power

Check the adapter power plug with a multi-meter. The voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If you get near zero voltage then the adapter is faulty and you should take it back for a replacement.

Computer does not detect new 802.11n pci wireless adapter..also used cd to put drivers on...but main problem is it seems that the computer doesnt even power on the LED light to the adapter.....HELP PLZ!!

try moving the PCI card to another PCI slot in the computer. Sometimes individual PCI slots stop working properly. If you put the card into multiple PCI slots and it never recognizes it or lights up, your card may be defective.

"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.

"WPC54G is not installed"

Hai rob if ur device manager says error code 10then it seems the drivers are not installed properly for the adapter, try to update drivers, go to device manager, right clich adapter and click update driver and try to update driver, in some case ur pc may require win 2000 cd to.. check for the instructions while installing it , that would surely fix your problem..

After connecting to the usb, led lights up, then off, windows does not detect it.

Is the hub you mention, an extension from another usb port only, as the adapter may need to be powered and require a AC/DC powered hub to work.
