During my linksys install, the software validates my connection and fails everytime. I do not have an adapter on the computer I am installing the software on.

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I don't have my user name and password for my wireless network and need it to connect a wireless printer


If you have the CD that comes with the adapter then you can try uninstall Linksys software and install only the drivers of the adapter.

Remove the Linksys Adapter and un-install the Linksys Software from Programs menu. To re-install the Drivers insert the Linksys Setup CD into your CD-ROM drive. When the Welcome screen appears click Exit. Connect your USB adapter to the computer. When the Found new Hardware Wizard window appears, click Install the software automatically (Recommended) then click Next. Click Finish when the installation is complete.Try to connect to the wireless network again. See if that works. You can also download the latest drivers from Linksys website on any other computer. Save it on a Flash drive and transfer the drivers on your computer.

You need to have the router connected directly to the computer to do this setup. If you are directly connected to the internet you cannot communicate with the router and most everything will fail. Remember to set wireless security on the router, give a ssytem name and consider setting channels to 11 or so to not compete with wireless home phones.

WPC54G wont install power light is on


The problem is that the PCI slot/socket where the wireless adapter is snapped/connected is not not compatible with the adapter. I suppose that the adapter is more more faster than than socket so it can hardly function as it should. I recommend that you return the adapter and get a slower version of the adapter. Make sure that the drivers are properly installed by removing/uninstalling any previous software from the system.

I need to know how to install my Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter v4


On the Linksys adapters you have to install the drivers first, then install the adapter.
First, un-install the drivers and power off the computer. Remove the adapter . then boot the computer . Reinstall the drivers and power off, re-install the adapter.when the computer boots up it will find the adapter.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

"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.
