I got a problemw with the above related device. After installing, i have a yellow quesiton mark in ym device manager, obviously stating the need for drivers. So i do an update driver, with manual updating of the files found in the folder. Then i get faced with a code 10, even AFTER installing all the necessary drivers. Texas instrument driver is fine though, it's the driver that enables the card to be linked to the device that is causing the hurt. And oh yeah, i forgot to mention. NO LED LIGHTS!! Like nada, 0, zilch. No power, no link, nothing. WTH is up with that? Can anyone help? getting frustrated with this device and the forums dont seem to offer much advise other than the usual "reinstall driver" advise, Trust me, been there, done that.
Once you've eliminated a bad card (ie. it works on another box), you might try this. I had the Code 10 error and it was driving me nuts, then I found this nugget of a registry mod and Poof! it WORKED! Just add a DWORD value to the following key:

Re: Linksys WPC54G v2 code 10 error problem
Try using a different pcmcia slot if one is available. I hate to state the obvious but if there are no lights, something is wrong with pcmcia slot or the wireless adapter. Do you have any other pcmcia devices, if so verify that they work. If it works, something is wrong with the card. I have bought a brand new adapter before just to find out it was faulty. I chased my tail thinking something was wrong with my hardware just to find out it was a bad wireless adapter. Hope this helps

The Code 10 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 10 error will almost always display in the following way: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 10 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties: How To View a Device's Status in Device Manager. Important: Device Manager error codes are exclusive to Device Manager. If you see the Code 10 error elsewhere in Windows, chances are it's a system error code which you should not troubleshoot as a Device Manager issue. Cause of the Code 10 Error A Code 10 error is generated when Device Manager can't start the hardware device, a situation usually caused by outdated or corrupted drivers. A device may also receive a Code 10 error if a driver generates an error that Device Manager doesn't understand. In other words, a Code 10 error can sometimes be a very generic message indicating some kind of unspecified driver or hardware problem. Error Code 10 Troubleshooting 1.Restart your computer if you haven't done so already. There is always the chance that the error Code 10 you're seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem in Device Manager or with the hardware. If so, a reboot might fix the Code 10 error.
2.Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 10 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 10 error. Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 10 error. Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include: •Remove or reconfigure the newly installed device. •Roll back the driver to a version prior to your update. •Use System Restore to undo recent Device Manager related changes. 3.Reinstall the drivers for the device. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a likely solution to a Code 10 error. Important: If a USB device is generating the Code 10 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.
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.
Another thing to check, (especially if you have installed SP2 in the midst of this process of trying to get the Linksys WPC54G drivers installed).
In Device Manager, check under the "network adapters" category and see if there's any "other" things with a yellow question mark - I clicked one of those, had it search for the new driver, and after a few minutes it eventually installed a WPC54G driver and placed it in the "Network Adapters" category (I had already run the drivers install from Linksys, Broadcom, many times over - de-installing each time to try another version).
Funny thing about it, when I hit "update" or whatever on that yellow question mark icon - it had given me no clue whatsoever that it was a wireless adapter driver that it was updating.
Hope this helps.

This is an issue that is commonly happeniong with this model, due to the fact that the main chipset was made from a diff manufacturer as compared to other linksys products. Here is what i would suggst you do:
1. Right click on my computer icon>select properties>Hardware>Device manager
2. The adaptor in question will def either turn up with a yellow question mark or a yellow circled black exclamation mark. Depending on the error code (erorr code 10 or 28, usually these 2 occur), double click the icon and select update driver.
3. When the computer asks if it should search for the necessary file (on win XP), click on the option whereby it allows you to install the driver youself.
4. Once that is done, if you have the driver (obtainable from linksys.com) on your PC, just point the tool to the .inf (there should be 3, including autoplay.inf, which you dont need for the driver installation) file in the folder and select both drivers.
5. restart computer.
It should be working fine now. Please do not hesistate to reach me for alternative solutions if this does not work out. Thanks.
I have to say one thing. The best place to find the right product is from there own web site. Go to linksys and get your software and drivers!!! I clicked on (bigg t's) best solution and instantly I was seeing popups. the nerve of some people.
Hai rob if ur device manager says error code 10then it seems the drivers are not installed properly for the adapter, try to update drivers, go to device manager, right clich adapter and click update driver and try to update driver, in some case ur pc may require win 2000 cd to.. check for the instructions while installing it , that would surely fix your problem..
