Question about Linksys WUSB54GC 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Vista and the Internet

There seems to be a lot of people with the same Issue. Windows Vista keeps changing from Acess: Local and Internet to Acess: Local only. is there a way to keep it Local and Internet? Also it seems that my connection has slowed down considerably. I used to be able to play streaming video off of You Tube now it starts and stops contantly. I changed from an Intel 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection card to a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter Model WUSB54GC. When I hooked up the Linksys USB Model it was again fast and worked flawlessly for a day now it is back to the Start and Stop instead of the smooth streaming can anyone tell me why and how to fix this issue. thanks in advance

    I am having the same problem as well. I disconnect the device, uninstall the driver, reinstall the vista driver that I downloaded from the linksys website and everything works great until I reboot the system. Sometimes the wireless connection will work for a day or two, other times I cannot connect after a re-boot.

ok, the screen going blank may be your inverter going bad. i do not know about the wireless issue. and the sluggishness of windows is due to the fact that your computer isnt really powerful enuf for vista.

Can't connect 64 bit vista computer to wireless internet


Yes there is a problem with the 2wire's wireless with 64bit vista. I had a problem with my MAC and my Windows VISTA 64 BIT Laptop not being able to keep a stable connection with the default wireless username and password.
To get into the 2wire: Open a Internet window Address Bar 192.168.1.254 Home network "At the top of the page" then click on wireless settings "Also at the top of the page" Then you are in the wireless config to change the information.
What i had to do is change the wireless authentication to WPA-PSK and change the wireless password (Use a 10 digit Number as the pass-code, a phone # would be a good suggestion) , what you also need to do is change the name of the network along with the channel of the wireless, it helps if you take it all the way up to 11. Then you should be smooth sailing all the way. :-)
