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: 184.108.40.206
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.
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.
I am having problems after installing the ae2500 adapter in my win 7 machine had to remove malwarebytes and avg to get it to work but now it constantly has problems dropping the internet connection. I have to disable the adapter then enable it to reconnect to the internet. Are there other compatibility problems with this setup that I need to address?
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?
when i install using the CD it stops after i plug in the adapter with a 211 error telling me to replug it in blah blah. i tried to manually install the drivers from the CD. it dose this successfully but it wont pick up any net works. and when i use the network app that came with the CD it tells me it is not installed right. what is going on it says on the box windows vista compatible.
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!!
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.
I cant install drivers for Windovs XP both 32-64 Professional. Original CD tells me for x64 OS is not supported, also, when trying to install only drivers it just can't find it. For x32 same problem - can't install drivers. I've got Intel DP45SG.
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!
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.
i am using a Linksys AE2500 and it will randomly disconnect. the bar icon on the bottom right shows a yellow icon over it. running the tool to reconnect does not reconnect me to the internet, i have to reboot my computer.
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.
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.
I have 3 computers all running Windows 7 64bit. I had to move my desktop computer to a different room with no ethernet connection so I purchased a Linksys AE2500 usb wireless adapter for it. My router/modem is a Actiontec 2000 which came with my internet. When I have my desktop on and connected to the internet it slows down all the computers on the network and it is really slow. My question is do I have something installed wrong? I used the driver for teh adapter from this site and nothing else has changed.
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?
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.
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
I have a AE2500 USB Adapter. Whenever I go to connect it from my host machine to my VM I receive a Code 10 Error in Device Manager(Device Cannot Start). The VM locks up for awhile then comes to for a moment. Problem stops when the USB adapter is removed.
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.
I Recently purchased the Linksys AE2500 adapter, upon looking at the advanced adapter settings, I couldn't find any more information pertaining to these settings on any linksys website or in fact online, where can I find a guide about these settings, Nothing about these setting was included on the CD.I set the basic one such as roaming aggressiveness but there are others that I would like to know about.
I currently have an AE2500 wireless usb plugged into my pc which is upstairs from my modem NetGear CG3100.Everytime I establish a wireless connection it has 4-5 bars of signaltivity. However after a couple of seconds the signal bars drop to 2 bars and maintains that way. I then experience disconnections which sometimes if i disconnect from the web, my browser detects it as a DNS error. To overcome this i just disconnect from the hotspot and reconnect again but the problem still persists.
I got the AE2500 Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Adapter. It connects just fine but it seems to like to disconnect on me. Mainly seems to do it when playing online games and testing out speed test.net It does "Download" test fine, "Upload" test is iffy. Sometimes I can run the test 1-2 times sometimes three times, but seems to always drop connection on one of the "upload" tests.
