Linksys WPC54G v2 code 10 error problem

Hi There,

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:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pcmcia\Parameters]
"DisableIsatoPcInterrupt"=dword:00000001

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

No lights coming on any more, can't reinstall as its not detected....


First, install the device-drivers.
Second, insert the device.
If it is not detected, repeat the above on another computer.
If it still is _NOT_ detected, then it is "dead", and must be replaced.

Lost cd rom to download Linksys wireless G notebook adapter


Hello there.

You can download the drivers (that are usually on the CD) from here. Please select your 'Version' from the list. You can look at the back of the device to find out which one you have, as there are many called WPC54G. Then after choosing the version click GO then click on 'Driver' to start the download.

This will let your wireless device function on your laptop computer.

Hope this helps.

"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.

No association with access point


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.

Linksys wireless g notebook adapter


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.

"WPC54G is not installed"


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..
