Question about Linksys Wireless-G WUSB54GS 802.11g/b

1 Answer

Wusb54g Linksys usb wireless adapter.

I am trying to help a buddy get his laptop connected to their wireless network. He has the above mentioned adapter and the installation disk supplied, but he is running Win 98 on the laptop. I can't remember enough about Win 98 to walk him thru to fix it. He says that he starts the setup disk but during installation gets an error about drivers not found. I told him he needed to try getting on the linksys site and see if they had legacy drivers for Win 98.
Can you help me help him? We are trying to get this setup before our football draft in like 6 hours.

This wireless adapter wont work with Windows 98, the reason why your friend encounter an error when trying to install it, it will only work to windows2000 and higher that why you wont be able to install it on that computer, you can check this link and just click on datasheet so you can see the specs of computer in order for this adapter to work http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859843775&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=4377540888B31&displaypage=download#versiondetail

You may want to download drivers and new updates for this model from the link above. You have to select your version (2) and you'll see the download to your left on the page.

Try plugging it into another USB port.and or another computer if you have one available. Test the USB port with another device to see if it maybe the problem. Also make certain your plugs are snugly in their sockets. But it I think you are right on target with the defective device point of view.
If you ruled out the things listed above...defective.
Hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you

Cannot setup WPA2 on WUSB54G & WPC11 adaptors


This is because those wireless adapters that you mentioned do not support for WPA2. Linksys will not release drivers for those adapters that will make it work with WPA2 because they are already discontinued. So the only other option is to stick with WPA or WEP

Problem connecting linksys wusb54g wireless to internet.


Sounds like you need to reboot the router and probably the cable modem. Unplug both, wait 30 seconds, then plug them back in. It can't hurt anything and it solves this problem 90% of the time.

Can not connect adapter to laptop no installation CD-Rom


you have to install the driver for it to work and i assume that is not the case as you have no cd. Go here to download the driver. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109934&packedargs=sku%3D1134691790190&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0993490190B03 When installed go to the properties of your adapter in network connections, then click on tcp/ip line and then properties and ensure obtain ip address automatically is ticked and press ok. You may also have to use the home network connection wizard if you havent previously to share documents over your network.
