Wireless Adaper not working on Vista/XP!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I was referred to this website by one of my friends and already it seems this is a great community to post this question in. I've been looking for some help all over but I haven't been able to receive it from other forums
But here we go

I have Win 7 and XP dual booted, but for some reason my wireless adapter will not work giving me a Windows error code 39. So I decide to install vista...again the wireless adapter (which used to work on the same computer with vista) will not work giving me an error code of 10.

Why won't Vista or XP acknowledge my wireless adapter! I really want to go back to Win XP just because I am a HUGE admirer of the OS. I hope someone can help!!

Thank you in advance!

So what adapter is it exactly.. model, brand?

It depends on the drivers, some work and some don't. Can you elaborate the above question and tell me where you got your drivers from?

Yeah for sure. I have a Linksys WUSB54GS and I loaded the drivers straight off the disk I received with it. I also tried downloading drivers off of the Linksys website, used those when manually installing them, and Windows displayed an error. When I go to device manager it shows the device with an exclamation mark!

Do you know which version?

I have had problems with my WUSB54G and found a driver that worked for XP later on.

What do you do? Install the application directly or do you install it through device manager? ( pops up usually on XP, device manager >update drivers > put in location where they are and that's it )

Have you tried these?:

When I look at the back of the WA, under the model no. section it does not say v2,v3,v4 or any of that so I am assuming that I have v1 of the model. I checked online to see what my model no was but when I look at the back of the device it does not say, but only says:

Model No. WUSB54GS


I tried installing the application directly and also tried manually inputting the same driver using the device manager.

No I haven't but I will most definitely take a look!

Yes it's probably V1 as mine is the same.

You should, or you can keep looking for drivers on Google because sometimes it takes lots of searching to find it.. ( sometimes drivers aren't even on any website anymore : ( )

Report back!

So I did some more research and found out that the issue causing the Network adapter to fail is because Linksys did not release a 64-bit driver for the adapter. This meets my criteria and maybe yours?
