    I am trying to install a Linksys WMP54GS wireless PCI adapter on a Windows ME machine. I following the instructions and load up some utilities off the CD first and then install the card and complete the installation. Everything goes fine until the final stage where it goes to load the drivers and it says it can't find them. I downloaded the drivers off of Linksys's site and had the same problem. I point the installer to the specific directory and it still won't install them. It keeps saying it can't find the drivers.

    My serial number is MDI30

    MDI3xxxxxxxx is the serial number of WMP54G 4.0 (Ralink RT2500 based) not GS ! :eek:

    I just came back from 2 local Best Buys and all their WMP54GS and WMP54G cards all have MDI3xxxxxxxxxx serials.

    From my knowledge the GS are Broadcom based and :
    WMP54GS 1.0 -> MGP0xxxxxxxx
    WMP54GS 1.1 -> MGP1xxxxxxxx

    Huh, that is very odd. Has Linksys made a mistake? Every store I've been to has the same serials for the GS and G.
