Try this:

  1. Download and install CC Cleaner http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
  2. Open CC Cleaner
  3. Click "Tools" in the left-hand column
  4. To the right you'll see a list of programs to uninstall, click on the Linksys program and Run Uninstaller
  5. Reboot if it asks you too, then reopen CC Cleaner
  6. Click "Tools" again, and choose "Startup" on the right this time
  7. Check to see if there are any lingering references to the Linksys software. If you find any Linksys Keys, delete them.
If this resolves that issue, try going to the Linksys support website to see if they have a Vista compatible software.

Hope this helps! : )

I have a Compaq Vista Home Basic desktop set up to a Linksys router for my PS2, PS3 and Wii. I want to set up a second desktop computer (Windows98) that will be wireless also. How do I do that? Thank...


a win98 machine will likely have a rg-45 plug in the back, it's unlikely that may come with wireless network card. just use a straight through cable (the typical network cable) to physically connect the win98 machine to your linksys router, if you don't have any special security on your router, your win98 should be connected after a few seconds.

if you are getting a network card (possilby wireless):
install a network card on your windows 98 computer. if you're buying one make sure in the package says that it is supported by win98 (most are supported in win2k, xp, vista and 7 now so look closely before buying),

if you already have a network card and you are trying to install it, look for proper drivers from the network card manufacturer (drivers need to match model number and operating system(win98)). install your network card as per indicated in package or website if you are downloading drivers.

if you are connecting wirelessly, assuming that drivers are properly connected look in the network manager you just installed and look for the network name for your linksys router (whatever you configure that to be when your first install the linksys router) and attemtp to connect providing a password or any security requested.

in a nutshell that's what you need to do!

How can RECOVERY


Best way, remove and connect your Harddisk, to USB external and find the files, delete the files except recovery just look at the files and read all of them in folder. You will understand which one is recovery and your original Dell files. Then make scan and check error while you are there.
Connected to your computer, But Please read first If you are not sure do not do anything, It is your own risk so doing wrong.
It is easy to recover without deleting original files by just deleting last programs that you have installed. So Delete the programs that you do not need. Goodluck

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop


If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)

Upgrade failure


The software that came with the WPS54G model is not (yet)compatible with Vista systems. This model is not listed on the Vista-ready devices from Linksys' website (www.linksys.com/vista). The behavior more likely a result of a software incompatibility.

For PrintServer network setup, you may still use the CD on a non-Vista system (XP, Win2000 or lower). Or, by installing it manually by accessing it's web interface.

To make your Vista working with the printserver WITHOUT the use of the PrintServer CD, do the ff:
1. Make sure PrintServer is configured on the network with the same wireless settings of your router and with a manually assigned IP address which is in range of the router's IP segment.
2. Make sure that computer can print locally to the printer (e.g. via USB connection to the printer).
3. When computer can surf the net and connected to the router's network (wired or wireless), follow the steps from this article and make sure Printer is showing up as Online.

Goodluck!

Still didn't work


did you install the driver? you also have to be sure that you installed a vista driver....if your cd-driver for linksys does not work download the vista driver from teh linksys website. i also suggest if you can't install the vista driver for your linksys properly i suggest you copy the driver to a cd and install it from there( meaning install the router using the cd). I also suggest you uninstall it from the control panel- add/remove programs before installing the new driver. also try installing the driver or linksys w/ your firewall off it also has to be configured to allow the program

Installing Problems


It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32
