Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WMP54G Stops Transmitting And Drops Off Network For Moment
Apr 2, 2011
I'm having an issue with a 2 week old WMP54G pci adapter. The behavior is as follows: I get a successful connection and excellent speeds, but every 10 seconds it stops transmitting and drops off the network for a moment. Then everything comes right back. 10 seconds on, drop, 10 seconds on, drop.I've investigated possible sources of interference, but there aren't any strong networks coming though on the same or nearby channels. Moreover, other devices sitting in essentially the same spot are connected consistently and show no variation in the signal strength.
Other info: OS is Ubuntu 10.10, the machine is a Dell GX270.
I got the D-Link router setup and with the network key. When i tried to type the network key in my pc(which has the adapter). it gave me an error.Network key password need to be 40 bits or 104 bit depend on network configuration. This can be 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters". what does it mean? because the network key work with other pc..but not my pc with WMP 54G. reason?
I have the WMP54G internal wireless adaptor. It normally works fine, but I have been having problems with it lately when I turn my computer back on from sleep. Even thought the wireless router works just fine, when the computer wakes up from sleep the adaptor does not seem to detect any network. I have to restart my computer, and then the adaptor detects the network.
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.
I recently re-installed Windows on my PC, and I had the Wireless-G PCI Adapter installed before I done the re-installation.Now I've re-installed Windows, the adapter doesn't work. Do I have to re-do the whole process again? Also, I didn't actually install it myself, so any detailed step-by-step tutorial?
I am having some trouble getting my computer with Windows XP to use the Linksys model WMP54G wireless - G PCI adapter to connect to the network in my house. I have installed the hardware and the drivers. When I open the view available wireless networks window my network shows up with two bars of strength. But when I select this network and click connect, I get an error message saying "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have other computers connecting to this wireless network without any problem. The wireless router I am using is the model WRT150N wireless
My router is located in my living room and my desktop is in a room located some 30 fett away with several walls in between. I am a light user (surf internet, read emails) and I do not have any special requirements.My router is a WRT54G router and my Wireless-G PCI Adapter is a WMP54G. Both have worked well for the last 5 years or so. Unfortunately, I had some work done in my room and the workers have broken the antenna on my desktop PCI adapter.What should I buy to replace my WMP54G?Should I get a PCI adapter or an USB adapter? Which one?Reliability, range and ease of use are my priorities. Price is not a major concern.
I have the PCI adapter installed on my computer. I have installed the driver and my computer recognizes the adapter, can see the network I want to connect to... but will NOT connect.I have 9 other wireless devices connected with no issues. But the PCI adapter will not work.
I have a wireless adapter WMP54G for a long time, but recently i updated to windows 7 and the problems begun.
After read a lot of stuffs about this problem, i downloaded a driver by RALINK and installed de adpter. But......on the installation, show two hardware: one is the adapter Linksys WMP54G...and the other can't be installed. So..on the Device manager appear like "unknown device" on the three of "USB controllers"
So...i'm already try a lot of things and can't install this adapter
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my computer, and I cannot get my Linksys to work on it, the light doesn't light but it shows up in device manager. I've tried using Vista 32-bit drivers but it doesn't work at all, I am thinking it isn't a driver issue at all because it shows that the driver is up to date.
I had an antenna break on a WMP54g v 4.1 and I was able to replace it with a WMP54g v 4 but I'm not having a lot of luck getting the driver to install. This is on Win7 32 bit Home Premium. I assume this is due to the fact that I was using a newer and switched to an older piece of hardware and there is some driver issues. How to uninstall the old driver completely so I can start fresh I have tried everything I know to do and can't seem to get anywhere.
Where I can find a driver for:WMP54g v2 for Vista SP2 32bit It used to work just fine, until I recently reinstalled Vista (and installed all the updates) and now my internet connection is "limited." This means that it connects, but is extremely slow and the connection goes in and out.Here are some random notes about my problem:
Nothing is disabled, there are not any conflicts, and the problem remains even if I restore the OS back to restore point that I created right after reinstalling Vista (and before doing anything else).If I hook the computer directly up to my netgear router via cable, Windows Update will download and install a more recent version of said driver (no improvement).Other laptops in the house have no problems with the wifi. I have turned off both my cable modem and wifi router several times.The adapter does connect to the internet, and the signal strength is "excellent", but if drill down to the properties of the connection, it says that IPV4 is connected to the internet, but IPV6 is "limited." This then results in a very weak connection to the internet that goes in and out. I have tried unchecking IPV6 per some recommendations, but that did not work. I have tried resetting everything (winsock, etc) via command prompt. Firewall is off, no antivirus software
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?
I installed the Linksys WMP54G wireless adapter card in my windows 98 SE computer before I installed the software. (I now know the software is supposed to be installed before the hardware is installed.) The software didn't work. It wouldn't connect to any network. (I have used this adapter card and software before, so I know how to get it to connect when it is working properly.)I used the uninstall to uninstall it, but it didn't work. It removed most of the files, but in the "program add/remove" window (in control panel), the Linksys software is still listed. Using "program add/remove" to try to remove the Linksys software also doesn't work. It acts as if it is removing the software and then shows a message that says the software is 100% removed, but, after rebooting, the software is still listed in the "program add/remove" list. The WMP54G CD won't reinstall the software. Instead it says the software is already installed. How to find whatever WMP54G software file(s) are left on my computer and tell me how to manually remove them.
I'm trying to install a WMP54G PCI Version 4.1 in my Windows 2000 Pro SP4 computer. I ran the setup cd before installing the card, then took out the disk. After installing the card and powering the computer, the Available Wireless Network screen didn't appear. I also didn't get the Network Monitor icon on the taskbar. Network Monitor appears in the start menu, but can't be started. Device Manager says the card is working properly and there are no conflicts.
I uninstalled the software, removed the card, and repeated the installation process with the same end result. The card light blinks like it is receiving data. I'm using a Linksys WRT54G2 router. Both my desktop (W7) and my laptop (Vista) connect just fine. How can I get my W2K computer on the network?
I'm running Windows 7 64-bit with the very latest AE1000 driver (126.96.36.199). I have a Netgear WNDR3700 with dual band support. I replaced a D-Link DWA-556 PCIe 2.4 GHz card with this USB unit because I was seeing interference with my keyboard and mouse (Logitech Bluetooth). When the AE1000 works, I can consistently connect at 300 Mbps and the speed is great.Unfortunately, every so often, the connection to the internet drops and Windows 7 must do a wireless adapter reset in order to regain access to my network. During this time no other machines connected on the wireless network report any disruption and neither the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz WiFi profiles are connectable with the AE1000.I've tried switching from the built-in USB 2.0 ports on my motherboard to the USB 3.0 daughtercard to no avail. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. However, I started seeing this issue literally the day I installed this thing. The problem happens sometimes a few instances in an hour but then won't happen again for another few hours.In Event Viewer, I'm pretty consistently seeing:The TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service was successfully sent a stop control. The reason specified was: 0x40030011 [Operating System: Network Connectivity (Planned)]
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.
Adapter: WMP600N Router: E2000 (N-only) OS: Windows 7 X64
When I'm not connected to my wireless network, the signal strength is 4 bars (out of 5)Once connected, it drops to 2 bars. Speed is 39 Mbps. Why?I have updated the drivers (strangly, it says the drivers are from Ralink Technology. Corp, version 3.00.00.0041 built by: WinDDK)
I purchased a EA4500 and at first I could connect to it through its default ciscoxxxxx ssid on my laptop which is 2.4GHz only. I upgraded the firmware using the PC utility and now I can't find the 2.4GHz SSID no matter what settings I do. I've disabled and enabled it multiple times, changed it to have no security or with security and enabled and disabled it and renabled it. Nothing seems to work, but for some reason the 5GHz side I can connect to using a 5GHz device. I've also tried disabling the 5GHz side, but still no 2.4GHz.
I lost internet from the ISP and parts of our LAN went down.We were able to reproduce the error.Problem: Internet from ISP drops, program using port 10541 within the LAN stops communicating with a server.The computer and server are on the same switch, neither require access to the internet.How we fixed the problem, temporarily: Unplugged the power from the cable modem.How we reproduced the problem: Unscrewed the cable drop to the modem and powered it on.I have checked our firewalls logs and have seen nothing that stands out. I was able to ping the server from multiple computers, including the one that had the program running on it.Also while the internet was down, I tried removing the DNSs from the computer running the program, this made no difference.
I just got a new notebook that has windows ultimate, and whenever i turn it on it knocks off all the other PCS on the network and the printer, including the one the router is wired to. I can only get it to pick up all 4 devices when i go into the Lynksys program and click change password. But then the program locks up and i have to shut it off manually.
I already reset the router four times trying to get it to pick up all the PCs but it never works. I'm ready to toss the router and get something else. Are there any settings I can change or reset before this router becomes garbage fodder?
Recently i bought a Cisco RVS4000, upgraded the firmware to latest stable release (Firmware Version: V188.8.131.52) and started configuring it.Yesterday i found out that as the dsl connection drops (i'm using PPPoE with an ethernet ADSL Modem) the product stops logging, both locally and to an external configured syslog (which resides on a linux box over the LAN).
I just bought an alienware M14x and about 3 weeks after i set it up the LAN and WAN adapters stopped working and i couldn't get a wireless connection or hardwired connection.
I called technical support and they informed me it was due to a generic windows update that wasn't really compatible with my alienware machine. So i did a system restore and now its working fine and i disabled automatic updates.
Its been about a month since then and now I have all these updates that need to be downloaded and I'm not sure which one will cause my network adapters fail again.
I am installing a Cisco EA2500 wireless USB adapter to my old desktop (windows xp pro) and it keeps asking me for a WEP key/password to connect to my network that obviously must be 5 characters and my network/router is WPA2 and is more than 5 characters. How do I connect?
I have had a wusb100 on my computer for some time. Yesterday it kept showing that it had a very weak signal and wouldn't connect to the internet, although the other computers in the house were fine.. I've reinstalled it and the device manager shows it working fine. The tv screen icon advised me that there are wireless networks in the area but the adapter isn't connected. When I click on the pop up, it tells me that there are no wireless networks in range.
