Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)

1 Answer

Linksys Hello. My Linksys network card for my laptop does not seem to be working properly on encrypted networks. I Have the Linksys WPC54G. It will connect to the network, but after 10-20 minutes, it will disconnect. About every 3-5 times it disconnect, it resets all of the network settings for the secured network (like network type, network key, etc.). Any ideas on how to fix this?

    The provided software is running in the background, otherwise Windows won't connect to anything. However, if I try to connect to a network USING the provided software, it doesn't connect to anything either. I have to have the software running, but use the Windows XP UI to connect to it.

    I am, however the provided software does not soly work. It must be running in the background for my computer to connect, however, I can't connect to the network that way. I have to connect through the Windows XP wireless connector, with the provided software running in the background. I havn't had this problem before. It just started randomly doing this. However, it only does this to Wireless networks.

I used to have a Linksys WPC54G. Thia is normal for the LinkSys WPC54G. How ever in your configurations make sure everything is enabled. But as this being a wireless adapter you should make sure you use AdHoc Mode configurations and set it to channel 6 works the best and set it to G-Only mode not mixed..See the network light blinks and it should be flashing fast for it to conect. I had this same problem. I decided to reconfigure my Linksys to AdHoc and it seemed to work better form me. For as the secure links I set them at non secure and I manually set up my IP Address which is 192.168.1.01-255 Sub net mask is 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1 DCHP Server is also 192.168.1.1 I do hope this helps if it doesn't I say try moving your laptop around until your Wireless Network enables. there is always Tech Support on Linksys.com also. Good luck and I hope this works for you.

My linksys wpc54g repeatedly says "network cable unplugged" then reconnects


WPC54g is a wireless adapter. The message that you are getting is the message for the Local area connection. This message has nothing to do with the WPC54G. This message is for the wired connection and not for the wireless connection.

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.
