    Hello, I have a router and the pci adapter that goes into the computer and I put it into the right slot. But when I insert the cd, the software closes automatically after opening. I tried to open it from the "My Computer" and it still didnt work. Help would be appreciated.

    If you are runining Windows XP and the WMP54G is a version 2.0 the Monitoring Client is unnecessary for the operation of the WMP54G. When prompted for the drivers indicate they are on the CD. Use WZC (i.e. Windows Zero Configuration service) to configure the WMP54G.

    When prompted for the drivers, I put that they are on the CD, but it says theres nothing that was needed on the CD. Also, when Windows says "Found new hardware" it doesn't identify as Wireless G-Adapter, it's just Network Controller.

    You should indicate you have the driver on a specific location or it will use a generic driver. Double click the network connection and select the "Properties" control button. Click the "Configure" control button. Click the "Driver" tab. Click the "Update driver" control button. Select the "Install from List or Specify Location" and click the "Next" control button. Select "Search for the best driver to install) and click the checkbox search removable media" and "include this location" "browse", Browse to the CD Rom and the drivers folder and press the "Next" control button. You should find the driver. Alternatively download the driver from the Linksys support site. but make certain you down load the driver for the correct version, the version 4.0 will not work with a version 2.0.

    If you look at the inf on the CD it will not run under Windows XP, since the monitor should not be installed under Windows XP.

    It says that the hardware cant be installed because the wizard cant find the necesarry hardware.

    Power down the PC and unplug it. Remove the WMP54G and place it in another PCI slot and plug it back in and restart the machine.

    Then try adding the driver as I suggested or go through device manager, by right clicking "My Computer" and clicking "manage" and then left clicking "Device Manager". Double-Click Network Adapters and right-click your "Unknown Network" device and select "upgrade driver".

    It still says "Unabled to install drivers, because the wizard was unable to find sodtware". All your suggestions take me to the same place, which is the hardware update/installation wizard, and yeilds the same result.

    I just installed the drivers by clicking "roll back drivers" and manually installed them somehow. Windows now recognizes it as a Wireless G-Adapter, but it now says "device is unable to start [code 10]".
