I could not communicate with my router until I deleted this device. I cannot explain the problems that so many have complained of in their reviews, however I suspect that they themselves MAY have been the cause of the problems. I may have these reversed. I have used Linksys wireless equipment three routers, three wireless cards until I signed up for FIOS and retired my latest Linksys router.

The quick installation guide implies Windows XP will detect the card and set it up automatically. When it immediately connected to my network and the signal strength remained within an acceptable range, I decided that the Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G card might just be the answer for the desktop.

Cd drivers liksys excellent with no problems, windows 7 later suggested I install the newest drivers and they worked flawlessly as well. I figured out another way to install it from a tip here run setup from the Utilities folder.

It took two attempts before the card was able to connect to the network. Hours later after being on hold with tech support, I was told to hard-code an IP address in the card my DSL provider provides IP addresses automatically.

I had good luck with several other Linksys products, but this one hit rock bottom.

I expected to find that the Linksys software had over-ridden the built in Windows network manager with its own proprietary network management tool, as some reviewers have described, but this was not the case.

Although seemed that it was ready use, wireless security protocols have changed in the ten years since its production. I’m happy with WPA.

ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. They should have stuck to routers.

Please enter a question. But at that point I was thinking, oh oh, here’s a problem.


I shut down the computer, unplugged it and quickly installed the card into one of the available PCI slots. When the old desktop computer was moved to the basement, two floors down, my concern was that the signal would be so weak that either the card would not conect to the router at all, or speeds would be so low as to make it impractical to use. This is one very powerful and easy piece of equipment that wmp54vs should be able to have up and running in under 10 minutes.

It does not extend. Sure, you can go for some USB Network adapter but if you can assemble a complex lego set and have a spare expansion slot on your desktop computer, why not free up your on-board USB ports with something that is designed to be a permanent install? While in my case it was simply because I could – an internal card eliminates some y the speed problems related to motherboards with older USB v1.
