Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)
Hi. I have an IBM R50e laptop (Windows XP) with a PCMCIA slot. I'm trying to install the Linksys WPC54GS Wireless-G notebook adapter with SpeedBooster. I followed the exact instructions on the installation manual, but after I insert the adapter according to the instructions, the Power LED almost never stays lit. Then when I click 'next' anyway (either with the LED on or off), the window disappears and nothing happens. Needless to say, I don't get any connection.
I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling, restarting, installing the driver downloaded from a website, deleting the old driver from Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager and so on. Now when I insert the card, the power LED only flickers once and then stays off. The computer doesn't recognise it at all, not even from Control Panels->Add Hardware.
When I go to Network Connections, there isn't even a Wireless option.
It sounds like you may have a band PCMCIA slot. Have you attempted to use any other expansion cards in it to test this theory?
