Wireless adapter computer(laptop) owner was having difficulty trying to install vista service pack 1, it kept giving her an error and would close. For her to get on to the schools network she needed SP 1. So eventually the computer was booted up and hitting F8 an option came up to fix errors, we proceeded and eventually it worked and the computer rebooted, and installed SP1. But now the computer doesn't read that is has a wireless connection what so ever, even if you turn it on or off on the shell of the computer the light doesn't even come on...please help

You need to reinstall the drivers for the wireless card. If you give me the exact make and model of the computer I can send you the link where you can download the driver for free. If you need expert help doing this send me an email with your number and I will call you and walk you through the procedure. geokohler@gmail.com I have a BA in Computer Science and I do this for a hobby. I just like helping people so there will be no charges to you at all. Make sure you send me the exact make and model of the computer and ant service tag number or serial numbers to ensure I direct you to the proper driver. It's pretty straight forward. I'll send you the link and you just download the drivers on another computer, place the install file on a thumb drive or cd and run it on the computer in question. Once the proper drivers are installed your problem will be solved. I hope you find this helpful.

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.

I have F5D7234-4V1 with insight internet connection and i have win-xp laptop , ERROR MESSAGE - (windows cannot configured wireless ) tell me what to do - But unable to start WZC on my computer


If you want to use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to manage the wireless network, you will need to have Windows XP with service pack 2 as a minimum.

With Windows XP and SP2, you will need a Microsoft update for WPA2 that can be obtained from:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893357/en-us

After installation you will need to use the Windows Zero Config wireless configuration in the control panel to configure the adapter. WPA2 should now be available and work correctly.

Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and Windows Vista offer support for WPA2 without additional updates.

I have windows vista ultimate and it will not install service pack 1 it gets so far and then tells me there was an error that caused it not to install . Hence I have not installed service pack 1 or 2...


  1. Close all applications, and then restart your computer.
  2. After your computer has restarted, disable any antivirus or any antispyware applications that may load during the startup process. You can usually disable the application from the notification area. This area is located in the lower-right corner of the computer screen. To disable an application from the notification area, follow these steps:
    1. Right-click the icon of the third-party program.
    2. Click Close, Disable, Exit, or a similar term from the list of options. If these options are not available, you may have to open the application and then close or disable it in the application.
  3. As soon as you close the antivirus or the antispyware application, try to install the full download package for the service pack that you previously downloaded from the following Microsoft Download Center Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads)
  4. After you have completed the service pack installation, enable the antivirus or the antispyware application that you disabled in the previous steps.

Error code on dell laptop


There are two options you can try:
First boot up and hit F8 to put it in Safe Mode. Then go into your Control Panel>Add/Remove programs and uninstall Service Pack 1. Reboot and see if that works. If not try this:

Boot up into Safe Mode again by hitting F8 when it starts up. Click on Start>Programs>Accessories>System>System Restore (It may be a little diff but that is close). Click on System Restore and walk thru the Wizard, this will restore your computer to an earlier date before you installed Service Pack 1. Good Luck.
