Linksys WUSB54GS ver. 2.1 Driver

Hello everyone!

This is my second post on the forums, and I sure hope it's a good one.

I'm looking for the above mentioned driver. Would anyone happen to know if this is available somewhere? It's not on the Linksys site, yet.

If you know and, for some reason, don't want to share it on the forums, could you please PM me the info. to me?


Thanks,

Im not sure why you wold want a driver from 2005 but you can find it on this page. Since you didnt specify 32bit or 64 Im assumng 32. Its here Linksys by Cisco - WUSB54G Support

Ziggy,

I appreciate the prompt reply, but that driver isn't working. I don't want a driver from 2005; I'm simply looking for a driver that'll work on Windows 7 32bit (build 7600), my current OS.

Even my WUSB54GS was manufactured after 2005 (in 2007).

I have the initial disk (and drivers) that came with the adapter, but I'm fairly certain I need either a Windows 7 specific driver, or some sort of generic one to use as a temp. until Linksys releases one for Windows 7.


Any more ideas? I'll take whatever you can pitch. Right now, I'm connected to the internet through CAT5 on my laptop, which is connected via wireless to my network.

Regards,

Try using the newer driver and install as admin in compatibility mode. It might help. I dont know where else you would get a driver from so I will have to search brb

Edit: I dont know if this is any different but it is from a different source http://www.findmysoft.com/drivers/do...rd-driver.html

Fliplip,

Are you serious? Although envious, I'm really glad to see yours is working.

However, unfortuantely, I have tried using the original disk... and it doesn't appear to be working.

Did you install it on build 7260, and then upgrade to 7600?

Thanks for the help, but I'm starting to think it may just not work on 7600....
Considering it is the final release, perhaps it only works on previous builds, like with Fliplips?

So we know you need a driver. I assume you dont have connectivity, right? What does the linksys look like in device manager? installed and working or unknown (yellow triangle). Have you tried un-installing what ever is there and letting win 7 try to find it for you?

Im in for the duration and im subscribed to this thread so I get email whenevr something is posted
