Install drivers device windows xp


That's because wireless protocol "N" wasn't invented when XP was written. Either buy a "G" wireless adapter (which will work with XP) or upgrade your operating system to Vista or 7.

I have just bought a new computer and i am trying to install my linksys adapter to my new computer. it worked fine on the old 1, but is not working on the new 1. I am wondering what could be some problems


The WUSB54GSC adapter had been out of production for a while...the last driver update was for Windows XP in 2008 (for Version 2 devices). You should carefully examine the device to see if it is Version 1 or Version 2, as this is necessary when visiting the driver page.

If you're trying to use the adapter on a Windows 7 machine, and Windows 7 does not automatically install the driver, then you're pretty much out of luck as Linksys does not supply a Windows 7 driver for this unit. They don't list a Vista driver, either, although often XP drivers will transfer to Vista without difficulty.

So...if you're trying to install it on a Vista machine, try downloading/installing the XP driver for your device version...it MAY work. If that does not work, or if it's a Win 7 machine, time for a new adapter.

Most new computers these days (at least laptops) have wireless built-in and don't need a USB adapter. I'm assuming, therefore, that you're using this on a desktop. If so, and you need a new one, very good quality ones can be had at WalMart for around $20. Just be sure whatever you buy is compatible to your operating system. It will be printed on the packaging.

Hope that's helpful.

Acer 4315 WLAN driver for WIndows XP


Sorry if I am coming into this early, but I had the same problem with my Acer Extensa 4420. Eventually, after tons of forum threads, I found that the same chip that's in the Acer computers is also in some Dell computers. Just ignore the fact that it says it's by Dell and download this:
http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R174291.EXE


Then, extract the files to a folder and from device manager, and point 'Network Controller' (or whatever your wireless adapter is named in device manager) to that folder.

Dezzie.

This software will work with your Toshiba Laptop. This software was created by Toshiba. You need to install the Network Adapter. So go to Toshiba's website and update your network adapter drivers for win XP SP2.

Please let me know how this works.

Thank you

Are you sure that you installed the windows xp drivers and not the vista drivers? There may be no xp drivers for your laptop, and if thats the case, you'll have to switch back to vista. Make sure you know 100% that its the xp drivers.
