Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Cannot Detect / Install AE2500 On Windows 7 PC

Mar 26, 2012

I get the following error when running the setup executable downloaded from this site:
 
Error description:   Adapter can't be Found
Model name:   AE1200/AE2500
Operating system:   Windows 7 SP 1
Software version:   2.1.0.6
Motherboard is an asus p7p55
 
I have tried all 8 usb ports on the back of my computer and the 2 case ports.  Non of them detect the adapter when running the setup executable.  I have no other usb devices connected.  Windows 7 was installed on this machine at the begining of this month.  I have attempted to install the AE2500 on another windows 7 pc and it installed with no problems.  I suspect the problem is the motherboard.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 / Cannot Install Cisco Connect

Aug 19, 2011

I bought a AE2500 adapter recently and attempted to install the Cisco Connect software. It gets to the point of connecting the device to the wireless, then crashes. I noticed that as I plugged the device in, it was recognised and activated without running the software at all; at the time of the software trying to connect the device, it's already connected.Just in case it was a matter of an old version of the driver and Cisco Connect software, I went online to the website and downloaded both the most recent driver and the latest version of Cisco Connect. The Cisco Connect crashed just like the version on the CD, and the driver said it was already the latest version and wouldn't install.So I tried the direct chat option. I spoke to two people. One of them lead me to give them a lot of information, then began asking me about my router... and promptly forgot about the adapter. They even had me on the path to resetting and installing software for the router I'm connected to, which isn't mine. Then the chat session crashed. why the Cisco Connect program keeps repeatedly crashing, and how I can stop it from doing so. As it stands, I think the adapter is overloading the memory on my computer and causing blue screens; I've been getting them ever since I connected the adapter. I think it might have something to do with my computer automatically detecting and activating the device when it's plugged in, but I'm not sure.

Linksys Wireless Adapters ::Windows 2000 PC Can't Detect WMP54G

Nov 30, 2009

I just bought this wireless g pci card and installed the software from the cd on to a windows 2000 pc.  When I went to run the software I can only click on the exit button.  I looked on the forums and saw that for win 2000 you should only install the drivers by allowing your computer to detect the card.  I uninstalled the software but my computer wont detect the card now and if I reinstall the software I cant even open it up anymore.  The card is not listed in the device manager at all.  Would installing i the first time have created anything in the registry that would  have been left behind in the uninstall and would it be blocking the computer from detecting this as new hardware?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: How To Install WUSB600N Adapter With Windows 7

Nov 8, 2009

I am running Windows 7 with the WUSB600N (v.2). Here is how I got it to work.The driver support is not a .exe. You will have to install it yourself...but it's not a big deal.Download the Windows 7 driver for your OS version from the Linksys Support page.Save it to the desktop and then unzip it to the desktop so you can find it easier.Once unzipped you will see 3 folders:  Mac, Win7 32 and Win7 64. Choose accordingly.What I did was install it through the "Device Manager". (Right click "My Computer", choose "Manage", then Device Manager",or use the "Search Bar under the Start Menu...whatever. Once you are in the Device Manager...
 
1. Make sure your WUSB600N is inserted in your computer.
 
2. Navigate down to "Network Adapters" If you see your WUSB600N adapter...great! Your halfway home!
 
3. Right click on the "Linksys WUSB600N Adapter.
 
4. Choose the option to " Update Driver Software"
 
5. Choose "Browse My Computer for Software"
 
6. Navigate to the desktop and choose the folder  that contains the name of your Windows 7 platform.
 
7. It should update but, HOLD ON! We are not done yet!!!
 
In order for it to start transmitting in that shiny new 5GHZ band, you must go into "Network and Sharing Center". Once there, look on the left hand side of the main window and you will see "Change adapter settings"Go there. You should see here that your existing adapter is still working (enabled) and your new Linksys WUSB600N has a big fat red "X" under it (disabled).Right click on your  existing adapter and choose, "DISABLE".Then, right click on the WUSB600N adapter and choose "ENABLE".The last thing you should have to do is choose the network you want to connect to (for me it was the 5GHZ one) ..and Viola!!

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE1000 - Unable To Install Windows 7 32-bit

Oct 12, 2010

I purchased the AE1000 wireless adapter for use with my Linksys WRT54G router.  I first tried to install by loading the CD, which went so far as the "Insert your adapter into a USB port" screen.  The Windows "processing" circle spun for about twenty minutes, then I was prompted to "insert the wireless adapter" once more.  Rinse, repeat.  I absolutely cannot get past this step. I scoured the web for an answer and turned up little.  I uninstalled my antivirus and firewall software, made certain that files associated with my prior adapter were removed, tried varying USB ports (all 2.0) on my desktop, and had no success.  Today, I exchanged the adapter for a replacement, and I'm encountering all of the same difficulties.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Trying To Get AE2500 To Work

Oct 12, 2011

I've recently bought an AE2500 wireless adapter, and I've had problems setting it up, I've checked my port drivers versions and they're all up to date, I have looked over countless websites figuring out why it is doing this, my computer is a Windows Vista, and my last resort is formatting the computer, I've been here for countless hours trying to get this to work, when I run the disk with the adapter, it gets stuck at "Detecting Adapter" and ends up coming up with "Cannot find wireless adapter" or something really close to that. I've tried switching it to all of my USB ports, and nothing is working!

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: New AE2500 Will Not Connect?

Apr 30, 2013

I just moved an older Windows XP Desktop /w Service Pack 3 from my parent's house over to mine after having my laptop fail on me. It was previously connected wirelessly at their house with a Microsoft MN-510 wireless adapter. When I got it up and running at my house, it was not picking up any networks with the MN-510. So I picked up a new AE2500 today, thinking that the ancient MN-510 may be the problem. Plugged it in, threw in the disc and voila, it started picking up Networks. The problem is, It is not connecting to my Network. The router is a Motorola SBG901. I have already disabled the security on the router and made sure that the MAC Filtering is disabled, but it is still not connecting. There has been no other issues with connecting any of our other devices.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 Only Gives 39Mbit Usable

Jul 6, 2011

I recently upgraded my router to the Linksys E4200 and setup a 40MHz connection using Channels 44+48 of the 5Ghz spectrum.  This works really well on my wife's Lenovo T420 w/Centrino 2x2 and Windows 7.  I get over 100Mbit sustained performing CIFS file transfers from my file server.  My SSID for 5Ghz is different from 2.4 so I can easily verify which one I'm connected to.
 
I wanted to do the same on my laptop which is a bit older (Lenovo T410) and only supported 2.4Ghz.  So I bought the new Cisco AE2500 802.11n USB adapter and plugged it into a USB2.0 slot (I believe all slots are USB 2.0 on this laptop).  I'm using the latest driver from the Cisco website.
 
Windows XP reports a connection speed of "300Mbit" just like on the my wife's laptop -- but when I do the same CIFS file transfer my transfer rate is "stuck" at 39mbit download (13% of 300) and for uploads I'm getting 16-17% of 300 (approx 48Mbit).  
 
I've tried fiddling with all manner of advanced settings in the Windows driver for the NIC with no avail.  No matter what, it's like I'm capped at exactly 39 Mbit.
 
I tried reviewing the specs of the AE2500 and it says it has two antenna's per band.  I assumed this meant it was 2x2?  Is this not the case.  Is it 1x1?  Could this explain it?  Or, does it matter which 5Ghz channels I use -- from the AE2500 spec sheet it seemed like it might not support all 5Ghz frequencies?  
 
While 39Mbit is better than the 17-20Mbit I was getting on 802.11g, given how well my wife's laptop works using the Intel NIC it seems something is lacking with the AE2500 or its driver.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 Cannot Be Located For Installation

Jan 8, 2012

I have tried numerous times to install the disk and the adapter, but it always says it cannot locate the adapter.  I know that the ports (I have tried them all) are working properly because they have been in use.  I tried the chat.  He suggested I call the 1-800 number.  I don't have time to wait on hold forever, which I did anyway until I finally hung up.

Dec 30, 2012

I can't connect on my 2500 on my xp system. I just wiped the drive and did a fresh install on everything due to a virus. I updated xp/ and drivers and installed the ae2500 drivers. When I try to log on it starts to and shows connected however, it tells me "windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network" I noticed that this system has the same ae2500 with windows vista and uses wpa2-personal, aes. The xp system only has options for wpa-personal, aes. Is this the problem or is it something else?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 Disconnects When Connected To Certain Websites

Apr 4, 2013

desktop with Windows 7. It is connected to the internet in my office thru Uverse (AT&T). We previously had a standard router, but upgraded since it seemed to be moving too slow. This problem with the adapter existed then also and we thought maybe it was too many computers slowing down the router.The adapter works great until I try to open certain websites. Then it loses its mind. I get a popup that says "Dial Up Connection" and wants me to choose to connect or work offline. When I click connect, I get a second window that says "Connecting through WAN Miniport", but it never actually connects to the page. Then lastly, a third popup says it has an error connecting and wants to redial and starts a countdown. But again, it never connects to the page.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 Unable To Connect To Network

Nov 5, 2011

I recently moved to a building that does not have wired Internet access. Upon the recommendation I purchased a Linksys AEE 2500 USB wireless adapter. I am unable to install the software which means, of course, I am unable to access any of the settings.The setup initializes, shows me the wireless network available (it has a locked padlock symbol next to a), and prompts me for the encryption key. It accepts the key and it's at this point the setup stalls. It shows the "attempting to connect to network" screen then, after whatever interval the software is set for before it times out, I get a notification that setup was unable to access the network. The generic Windows drivers access the network just fine although I only get two bars and a fair connection.I do have Internet connection through the windows drivers but it is slow and watching streaming video from Netflix is next to impossible.Long story short

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: Maximum Number Of AE2500 To Be Installed On XP SP3 PC?

May 7, 2012

What are the maximum number of AE2500 wireless adapters can be installed on a PC running Windows XP SP3 using the windows wireless zero configuration? Recently I'm working on a program that needs multiple seperate wireless connections on a Windows XP SP3 PC. Each wireless adaptor is given a static IP address to respond to traffic at some specific ports. I can install four AE2500 adaptors without problem, but  it disconnects the first AE2500 device when I plug in the fifth AE2500 adapter. I've tried on different windows XP machines. They all get the same problem. I wonder if it is a limitation in the AE2500 driver.BTW I've also tried to install an Valet AM10 adaptor as the fifth adapter, it seems ok. Yet installing more AM10 adapters beyond the fifth (4 AE2500 + 1 AM10) requires some luck. It may disconnect the other AM10 devices when I plug in another AM10 adapter.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 - Needs To Restart Modem Every Time For Connection

So I just got hooked up to the internet via qwest the other day with my room mate.  We have a wireless modem (PK5000) and he's using the AE2500 usb adapter to get online.  Now, he can get online, but if he ever turns off or sleeps his computer, he can't connect when he turns it back on.  His computer can see the network, full signal, but when he tries to connect it says cannot connect and under troubleshoot options suggests we should move his computer closer to the modem, but its only about 20 feet away and shows full signal.  To get it to work, we need to go into the modem config and reset the wireless options.  No changes are made, just scroll to the bottom and click apply, and presto change he can connect with no problems.He's running windows 7 home edition 64 bit.  The modem's security is WPA/WPA2.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE2500 - Slower Speeds Found Since Installing

Mar 9, 2013

I have had an issue with my AE2500 wireless adapter. I am using a LInksys E2500 dual band router but my samsung laptop's wireless adapter doesn't support 5ghz band, so bought the AE2500.I disabled the internal adapter and got the AE2500 connected up. I've set up the 5ghz channel with wireless N, and left 2.5ghz as it was. Somehow I am now experiencing slower speeds on both bands, when using speedtest.net's speed test. It's the 2nd time in my life I am having an issue like this, where I am adding something with capacity for more speed but end up things being worse. Previous was with a netgear adapter and router a few years ago. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I honestly don't think so.Also best sequence to get the new adapter connected? Should I do it before I disable the existing adapter?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WUSB600N Won't Detect Adapter But Computer Is Still Detected

Mar 24, 2011

I recently upgraded my computer (not laptop) from Windows XP to Windows 7-32 bit. I redownloaded and installed Network Magic, Linksys Wireless Manager and my WUSB600N adapter properly (I hope). Now everything was working fine, I was able to get onto my network through the adapter but today I noticed that the Linksys Wireless Manager seemed to not connect to my network, instead my computer some how did it without  the wireless manager. Now when I tried to connect to a network through the Wireless Manager it said Error: 211 and said My Adapter may not be installed properly and told me to remove the adapter and attach it back after 20 seconds. I tried that but again my computer connected to the network STILL through the computers own manager not through the Linksys Wireless Manager. That was still saying Error 211. So the problem really is that the Linksys Wireless Manager wont detect my adapter but my computer is still able to detect it and connect to my network.
