    I want to explore my options for different drivers for my Linksys WMP5GS. I'm currently using the latest version from Linksys but the included monitor eats up 15MB of memory. Some people have mentioned a microsoft driver that has worked succesfully, but I have been unable to find it. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    If you are using Windows XP SP2, it is not recommended that you use the Linksys WLAN software at all. You should only install the driver and unisntall the client software. Which version of the Linksys driver are you using. This is the version information for the Linksys driver:

    Driver trouble....

    My driver posts as 3.100.46.0. How do I remove the Linksys Monitor without removing the driver? I tried uninstalling from the add/remove programs and that uninstalled everything. I then installed just the driver by point windows to the directory where I extracted the updated drivers from Linksys. After the installed it mentioned that another program controls the driver or something like that. What I am doing wrong?

    try uninstalling all the driver/utilities of the adaptor, then manually install the drivers.
