Question about Linksys Wireless-G WMP54G 802.11g/b

1 Answer

We have had trouble free operation of our LinkSys Wireless Router and the WMP54G wireless G PCI Adapter. However, recently, we have found that the HP Pavillion computer will start to cycle off and restart up to the Desktop page where the computer immediately shuts down and recycles up to the Desktop page again and again. We found that if we disconnect the external antenna on the WMP54G wireless adapter and wait for the computer to cycle to the desktop, it will load the desktop icons and then we can reattach the external antenna. The computer will then operate properly for a few minutes, or a few hours and sometimes a few days, but it will eventually start to recycle and if we don’t disconnect the antenna, it will continue this recycle process of shutting off and cycling up to the desktop and then turning off and recycling again. We don’t know what may have happened or what to do about this.

Try booting into safe mode, and disabling the power management for the wireless adaptor (in windows, control panel, system, device manager, then click the plus sign on "network devices" and select the wireless device by right clicking it and selecting the "properties"...one of the tabs will have a setting on the page for power management- (you do NOT want to allow the device to shut itself off).
For a better solution, you'll need to post your OS.

By the way, it might not be the PCI card, but rather your OS, or some hard ware problem (such as RAM or Power Supply failing with the drain from the wireless antenna). Let's start with your OS and rebooting into "safe mode + networking" (hit "f8" while rebooting) once you've turned OFF power management for the wireless PCI device.

if your useing a G network (the router is a G?) then the adapter will attempt to connect via N you have to tell the adapter to connect via G mode only, it cut the speed in half but it should work.

if you have an N router check to make sure the router will accept an N connection. via the network configuration page. depending on the router that may be at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.1.255

I have a 3600 DT and want to install a Linksys Wireless PCI Adapter WMP54G. Is there a voltage I need to be sure to buy and where do I find instructions on how to install this?


The PCI adapters are designed to work with the standard PCMCIA slots in laptops. You don't need to worry about voltages. The Linksys wireless adapter will have a driver CD supplied with the wireless card and the installation insructions are straight forward.

I believe you are too far away range wise. Here is an idea that has worked for me in the past. Get as close to the neighbor router as possible. Stay there and get a really good connection so that the PC remembers your establishment. Then attempt again from your original spot. This may just do it. Otherwise a booster is the next step.

This is something to try:

Download drivers for your wireless device from this website. Afterward uninstall your wireless adapter. Then re-install it using the drivers you just downloaded. That should repair the issue(s), if not let me know and we'll take a look at other possibilities.

Lost the Driver for Linksys PCI wireless adapter, model wmp 54g


Go to your Device Manager and on the right side look and find Network Adapters. Expand the Network Adapter by clicking on it so you can see your Wireless Network Adapter. If it has a yellow exclamation on it then you need to install the correct driver, if it doesn have that exclamation the it may already have the correct driver. It may also be disabled ( red X) so enable it.

Check the wireless connection properties.On the "General" tab and in the middle look for and find "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" . Highlight it and click "properties". Make sure here that if you have set-up your router to connection type of DHCP that "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are the only ones checked.
