Linksys WPC54GS wireless adapter installation issue

Hi. I have an IBM R50e laptop (Windows XP) with a PCMCIA slot. I'm trying to install the Linksys WPC54GS Wireless-G notebook adapter with SpeedBooster. I followed the exact instructions on the installation manual, but after I insert the adapter according to the instructions, the Power LED almost never stays lit. Then when I click 'next' anyway (either with the LED on or off), the window disappears and nothing happens. Needless to say, I don't get any connection.

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling, restarting, installing the driver downloaded from a website, deleting the old driver from Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager and so on. Now when I insert the card, the power LED only flickers once and then stays off. The computer doesn't recognise it at all, not even from Control Panels->Add Hardware.

When I go to Network Connections, there isn't even a Wireless option.
I need help in getting a free download for my Linksys WPC54GS Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 Driver.

There's a possibility that the adapter is defective. However, you may still try the following:

1. Make sure to uninstall the software if you still have it installed. Remove it from the Programs list or under Add/Remove Programs.
2. Check Device Manager and make sure adapter is not under Network Adapters nor Other Devices. It might be called Network Controller if driver is not installed correctly.
3. Unplug card, shutdown computer and when PC is powered off, plug card back and restart computer.You may insert the CD on this process, but do not run/continue the CD setup wizard.
4. When computer is back on, you should get a Found New Hardware bubble message or wizard.

Just finish the wizard and tell me how it went. Goodluck!

No association with access point


The first thing I would recommend is to try plugging the adapter into another laptop to see whether it, or your laptop, is the problem.
If it's OK on the other laptop, I would suggest un-installing the driver for the adapter, upgrade Windows XP to latest, downloading the latest driver from the Linksys website then re-installing the driver according to manufacturer's instructions.

Card is inactive


You might want to make sure that your wireless adapter is enabled. Depending on what operating system you will need to go into your network connections area and enable it.If you have a laptop make sure that the switch has been turned on. It is usually located on the front side of the laptop.

I have a 3600 DT and want to install a Linksys Wireless PCI Adapter WMP54G. Is there a voltage I need to be sure to buy and where do I find instructions on how to install this?


The PCI adapters are designed to work with the standard PCMCIA slots in laptops. You don't need to worry about voltages. The Linksys wireless adapter will have a driver CD supplied with the wireless card and the installation insructions are straight forward.

Wireless help


My dear! alway remember that when you use any new hardware you should install driver first and then plug it with CPU. So it could be possible that when you install driver first then card will pick and work properly.
Thank You
