Linksys Driver

I'm looking for a stable linksys driver, i'm using WMP54G V4.1 , the one that Windows gives u isn't really good, i'm tryin the Ralink stuff, the Ralink RT61 Wireless Lan Card V2, this works almost perfect, it freezes up my computer sometimes when playing games or using high amount of networking, any ideas what drivers to use, also i'm using the Windows 7 RC 64-Bit

I had problems with USB linksys wireless card driver. I gave up, I plugged a WRT54G with dd-wrt firmware and configured the router to be a wireless card. No more driver issue, you just need a normal network card.

If you can't find a solution for your problem, that would be an alternative. But sure it's sad to get rid of a good wireless card.

Normal Network Card?! I'd rather gouge my eyes out and eat them than shell out for a Wired NiC when my Wireless NiC has never failed me.
Microsoft just needs to get their act together with the Software/Hardware companies and get things moving!
I NEED Windows 7 7100 To RECOGNIZE MY WIRELESS NiC!
Windows 7 7000 Saw it fine and made it work even better than XP SP2 but Now Nooooooo It won't see anything beyond saying There's no Cable installed....

I was not telling him to return to wired, I told him to replace his wireless card by a WRT router, with dd-wrt firmware, that can replace efficiently a wireless card.

Linksys WRT310N will not instal

I am having issues with installing the Lynksys WRT310 N router i isntalled it fine on the vista drive but when i started in win 7 build 7100 64 bit the instal program runs till it trys to communicate with the router this is where it fails saying it cannot talk to the router. all lights on the router state that the internet is active the net work cable is plugged in and there is activity. i have down loaed a new installer from manufacturer still no go
mother board is an ASUS Rampage extreme my computer is connected to the router via network cable (swapped and tested) router is connected to modem via network cable (as above) modem connected to Cable internet.
all works in Vista but not win 7 any ideas?

That is your router, but what card are you using?

If I understand correctly you're using an Ethernet network card, not a wireless one...is that correct?

If so, is it installed properly in the device manager?

Hi netRat
yes mate using a network card which is part of the motherboard so i have a direct net work connection to the router not a wirless connection.
every thing in device manager shows up as installed and running properly no conflicts etc.
i know the hard ware works as it works in vista (32bit).
i have shut down all firewalls and antivirus while trying to run the instal wizard but win 7 seems to stop the wizard from talking to the router.
the wizard asks how i am connected to the router before trying to comunicate with it also asks for password wich i have cut and past and typed no change

If you are connected to the router using an ethernet cable it should require no configuration at all so running the Linksys program isn't necessary...

According to the Asus support page you have a Marvel Yukon network interface.
Marvel currently offers no Windows 7 drivers, however you can get their latest unified driver package here:

Marvell: Download Drivers

Install that and reboot.

I'm assuming you're either with Telstra Bigpond or Optus cable. Turn both your modem and router off (unplug power) wait for 10 secs. Turn modem on, wait 2 mins, turn router on, wait 2 mins and check if internet is working.

Let us know how you go...
