Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)
I just purchased a new Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter and installed it on a Dell Latitude CPx notebook running Windows 2000 Professional.
The installation from the Linksys CD goes fine, and I receive the "installation of the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter is complete" message, then I'm asked to restart the computer.
After the restart, I insert the adapter and Windows searches for, and finds, the driver. It completes the installation, but with the message, "The software for this device is now installed, but may not work correctly. The device cannot start. (Code 10)". Device Manager also shows, "This device cannot start. (Code 10)", as well as, "This device isn't using any resources because it has a problem."
The Power LED on the adapter does light up. The Link LED does not.
The Configuration Utility icon does appear in the taskbar, but with the message, "WPC54G is not installed".
I have tried removing and reinserting the adapter, as well as reinstalling the driver. I have also uninstalled the software and run the entire installation routine again. The results are always the same.
Unfortunately, I don't have another laptop available in which to test the adapter, or another adapter to install, so I can't confirm if it's a problem with the computer or the adapter.
Thanks, in advance, for any help you can offer. I have the exact same problem as the first user, except my card worked once. The first night I had it it worked fine. the next morning the power LED wouldnt light up consistently. It would blink when I plugged it and thats it. I have XP and didn't have to install any software to get it to work the first time. So I installed the software from the linksys website but it did something to disable my wired connection, so I did a system restore.
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.

SOURCE: "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..
