No, that didn't solve it. I spoke too soon with the last post. About at the 24 hour point of connectivity since disabling on-board peripherals, it had the same problem again. The BSOD shows this message: BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER. Should I call windows support on this? Last time I called them, they just had me disable everything that was non-windows and wait for the problem again. Should I start a new thread for this problem? My original problem was with the Linksys WUSB100, but with the unknown drivers
, I thought it might be chipset issues. Here is a description of what causes the BSOD:
The computer appears to work fine for a random time (2 min to 24 hours). Then the connection stops and shows "Limited Access" or no internet basically. It says I'm still connected to the home network and the router is still working. My laptop can still use the router and resetting the router does not reset the problem.
If I select "restart" or "shut down", the shut down process takes FOREVER and then does a blue screen crash dump. The crash screen shows a problem occured with the usb driver
. I tried putting the Linksys wireless adapter into other USB slots and Windows 7 would detect the Linksys USB and create a new connection (Linksys USB wireless connection #3...#4...#5) for each slot I tried, but it would never connect correctly. This problem persisted even after successful restarts (no crash dump). Putting the usb adapter back in the original usb slot brings back internet connection.
The driver I'm using is from the Windows Update site. Under System - Device Manager, it shows the driver as 184.108.40.206 with a date of 8/26/09. This matches the version number that is listed on Linksys support website for the WUSB100 but the date is different -- 11/09/09.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
