Linksys Wireless Adapters :: : WPC54G V1.2 / Unable To Have Wireless Connection / Driver Not Found
Jul 12, 2011
I have a Packard Bell Laptop using Windows XP OS and doesn't have Wireless Connection. So long ago i bought a Linksys by Cisco Wireless-G Notebook Adapter WPC54G v.1.2 but didn't have time to set it up or use it for travelling conditions. A couple years later when i came back to check on the laptop, i noticed that i lost the setup CD. So i went on the Linksys website and looked for the driver the download. On the back of the Adapter(card) it says it is version 1.2. But this version is unavailable on the Linksys Website. I could only find v.1, 2,3,3.1 and 7. v.1 gives a driver of v3.1 etc... AND NOT VICE-VERSA.So first when i inserted the card into the slot , the PC didnt detect it. It only detected it rarely if i insert another driver (eg: USB..). And so a window would pop up to install but i didnt know what to do there. When i downloaded the v.1 driver from the website and installed it, it seemed not the detect the card either, it would just say searching for wireless, but that's it. It would keep searching for hours even when im next to the router.finally, only the Power led light on the card is lit up but not the "Link" led.
I have a WPC54G version 4 wireless-G notebook adapter. I cannot find anywhere even here the driver for this device? I read the forums and have been googling all morning and I found one topic that said that version 3 (Vista compatible) WPC54G_V31_driver_126.96.36.199_vista.exe..will work with ver 4. I have tried it and my adapter will still not see the files in the extracted folder. There's 5 files in the folder and when I do the hardware/update driver method it won't see the drivers. I have tried all the other version and none will load??
How can I get this driver to work with my Windows XP? I don't have the CD anymore.
I run the CD setup disk and the driver install correctly.In the "Connecting the Adapter" screen I click next before connecting the adapter,the setup screen just close with out any notification and no icons on the system tray.I shut down the machine, insert the adapter and power on the machine,now I have the monitor icon and a wireless connection icon in the system tray (the Power led is green and the Link led isblink),when I double click on the monitor icon I got the following screen: no available wireless and the refresh, connect and manual setup are disabled.when I click on the "open the monitor" form the right click menu I got the following screen: also nothing to do on this screen.so I think it's was because I don't have any wi-fi around me, I shutdown the computer raise my wi-fi andrestart the machine, now the led in the same status but the system tray icons didn't appears and when Itry to open it from the menu it's run for few seconds without any screen and disappear.
I just got this wireless notebook card off of ebay, and it did not come with a cd. After just plugging it in it would not install, so then I downloaded the drivers and transfered them to my laptop through a usb drive. I setup the program the best I could and now it says "WPC54G not installed" and "No association with Access Point" on the link information page. How I can install this wireless card?
I have a WPC54G ver. 2 adapter I am trying to get to work on a thinkpad T22 running W2kPRO with all the SPs and updates installed. The power light comes on, but the link light does not. I am using a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. The monitor icon shows in the taskbar and when I open it, it says the adapter is inactive. I have tried several time to download and install the driver for the Linksys site. It seems to install OK, but when I go back and check the Drivers tab to verify that the driver version has changed to 188.8.131.52, it is still version 184.108.40.206.
I am trying to install a WPC54G adapter in a Compaq EVO N610C Laptop with Windows XP SP3 and it has a Texas Instrument PCI-1420 CardBus Controller. Adapter is inactive. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, download updated drivers from Linksys.
Have an old laptop running XPSP2 with a WPC54G V1.2 card that I use for email when traveling. Had no problems accessing my old home network that ran off of a WRT54G V 5.0 wireless router, nor with any of the "motel wireless networks" when I travel. I changed ISPs and now have an Actiontec PK5000 wireless router.
When I attempt to connect I get an error message "unable to acquire network address."
This new router has the following 64 bit and 128 bit settings
wpa-wpa2 personal wpa personal wpa2 personal wep security off
Using any of the security settings I get the error. Turning off security allows me to connect fine.
I realize this is a pretty old wireless card so is it possible it doesn't work with the current encryption standards but I would have thought that wep would have worked. The driver for the card is V220.127.116.11 which is also old. Would updating the driver work and if so what driver? If a new card is the only way any recommendations for an inexpensive card?
I've spent several hours of my life trying to rectify this silly problem without peace. Maybe one of you can enlighten me. I've got a Win98 laptop and have loaded the driver specified from the Linksys website. The software from the website under "Version 1" downloads a file entitled "...driver utility v3.1." I've installed and uninstalled it 3 times with restarts inbetween. Each time Device Mngr shows it is installed correctly but the "inactive" status persists. I get a "Power" light indicator but never the "Link" indicator on the adapter. I do not have a firewall or any other software that would interfere with the access point I have at my home (which works just fine with my Vista laptop). Furthermore, the wireless router is not secured either, so it is wide open and broadcasting. But as I said, the adaptor isn't even showing as "active" so all that stuff is moot I guess. I can not upgrade the laptop to another OS, it is an antique from 1999 and can't cut the mustard with the RAM and processor speed it has. Besides, it should work just fine with Win98 anyway.
I use a WPC54G wireless adaptor to connect a laptop to my home network. I just replaced a WRT54G2 router with a Cisco Valet router.When I start up the laptop, the wireless adaptor's Monitor configuration takes priority over Windows XP wireless configuration, but the Cisco Valet does not recognize the Monitor. If I disable the Monitor, everything is fine until I reboot, and then the Monitor again prevents connecting to the router.
How do I permanently disable the Monitor software so that the laptop will default to the Windows XP wireless configuration settings?
I have a ThinkPad running 2000PRO that I just installed a WPX54G Notebook Adapter. After installing and restarting the computer I get a window saying External exception E06D7363. Also, when I go into configure it says the adapter is inactive. When the computer first starts up the icon for the adapter is green then turns gray.
I have the WPC54G , used on Sony Vaio, Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 and use a Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 Mobile Hotspot. Recently had system crash--reinstalled through recovery discs and all current Windows Update (SP3), as well as the WPC54G The WPC54G worked with various WiFi Networks and the MiFi2200 Device before crash. After "recovery", it recognize WiFi Networks, however; it does not recognize my network established through the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 Device. (Note: the MiFi Device is working because other computer/devices are gaining access to internet.
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?
Due to me losing the install CD for this card in a recent move, I am trying to download this driver from the LinkSys site and the process never starts, i.e. the download dialogue box comes up and I choose "save" because I need to sneaker-net the thing to another PC in the house.
I am trying to install the Ae1200 on my notebook (windowsXP), which doesn't have a cd drive. I downloaded the driver from cisco page, and also copied setup disc from a 2nd comp onto a usb drive. Using both options, the wizards starts correctly, but then ends with error message saying "cannot find specified file"
I have a WM600N wireless N dual band, I downloaded the drivers off linksys site for my vista 32/64 OS, the file is zipped, I copied it to cd from a different pc then the one it goes onto, and cannot run it, I also opened up the zipped file and copied its contents onto a cd and still couldn't get the pc to see them as drivers.Anyway, after I download the zipped file, which I have to do on a second pc in order to put on a second pc, how do I do that? What do I do with the zipped river file in order to get vista to see it and install it.
I am trying to update the driver for my WMP300N for Windows 7. I get a message from windows telling me that a registry key does not exsist. Is there a way to create the proper registry key or get a download that will update the registry? The download from linksys does not update the registry or create the key.
I have an E1000 router and have updated the firmware to v2.1.02 Build 6. Also have the AE1000 Wireless-N Adapter and wanted to see if there were any new updates. According to this Linksys page the latest driver is Ver.18.104.22.168 (04/27/2012). I have downloaded the file and unzipped it to the desktop.
I am running Win 7 64-Bit so I opened this folder: C:UsersJOHNDesktopAE1000_Win7_22.214.171.124-WHQLWin7_64_v126.96.36.199
Which file will actually install the new driver:
netr28ux Security Catalog 9 kb; netr28ux Setup Info 11 kb; netr28ux.sys System File 1,563 kb; RaCoInst.dat DAT File 14 kb; RaCoInstx.dll Application Extension 320 kb
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 installed windows 7 on my wifes new com and the device couldn't detect any connections using the default drivers (windows called it an nvidia wireless network card). I downloaded the drivers put them on her hd via flash drive and attempted to update the device drivers through the device manager but it says the drivers are already up to date. I uninstalled the device and windows called the device MCF-J415W and when I tried to update the drivers again it said the drivers were not correct. I'm not sure what is going on here and why linksys doesn't just have a .exe driver installer. I've had the same issue with my wife's computer when it had win xp except it didn't have any generic drivers to install. Also I tried selecting the driver from the list of pre-loaded drivers and found one for the exact device but it would not install those either.
I'm looking after any driver wich can operate the WUSB600N v2 under Windows 98 at an old computer who is not able to operate with WinXP.Is any "freak" there who knows wich driver can be used for it? (Perhaps as well an older driver from any other older CISCO wlan stick ... ?)
