Blue screeen with error on RT2500USB for wusb54gv4

Hi,
i got an old pc (celeron 2.0gb) from my dad, he was using wifi with the same adaptor without problem, i transferred the MB and chip into my old pc, hook up all hardwares and load a fresh copy of XP. But when i tried to connect the wifi adaptor, the pc could not detect it. Solved the detection problem with a PCI usb 2.0 adaptor. Then while trying to load the driver, it prompt me about no WHQL certification on my device, continued to load driver and the blue death screen appeared pointing to RT2500USB problem (driver).
If i boot the pc without hooking up the adaptor, it works fine which subsequently i can hook up the adaptor hoping it will work. And somtimes the adaptor works for a while and the conflict occurs again, if not an instant reset of pc will happen. I've spent many hours trying to troubleshoot but to no avail....Please help....
Is there a conflict of driver in this case?...I had tried it on a newer pc and it works fine. Linksys declared that it is not their adaptor problem.

awaiting for solution anxiously....Terence...(40+ hours spent)

Driver problem. Go into control panel and delete the adapter drivers. Remove the wifi adapter Then re-boot. I suspect the BSD (blue screen of death) was a result of a driver problem. If you have another computer that you can get on the internet with, go to the manufacturer website and download a driver. If you can get one, install the driver BEFORE plugging in the device and wait for the install program to prompt you to plug in the device. If you can't download a new driver, try plugging in the device again and see what happens. You need to avoid the BSD.

I have the same problem, one moment it works, the next, "No Connection" I use my Belkin adaptor with my Hi Fi to stream Internet radio. I have reset both the adaptor and my router twice without any luck. Check that your Dad has not changed the security settings on the router. If so, you will need to change the the adaptor settings to match. This adaptor does not have the strongest signal, so this also may need repositioning. Good luck. I am about to try re do the settings. failing this i have run out of ideas

Hi,

This means that your unit is having an error on one of the hardware installed on your PC, first thing to check is to change the memory module of your computer, this can be the first possible thing that you have a problem..

Hope this helps

I was playing this game callled mu online then the LOS error came


Hi there Try and boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. To get it to boot in safe mode press F8 as the computer starts up, a sub menu will appear and use the cursor keys to scroll up, select safe mode and hit enter. If it lets you into safe mode use system restore to take the computer back a day or two, any data will not be lost. If you need anymore help or advice please post back. Good luck

Yes you will need to use your Dads account. Usually when you register an account you will need to type in the CD/DVD # code of your disk. This is that long number printed either on the back of the manual or sticked on the inside of the CD case. This number is then associated with the account you created.
