    Ok m8s...

    after checking myself that with the new monitor version (4.2) the Linksys Wireless Network Monitor was not working anymore (not appearing on windows taskbar) and the only way to connect was WZC utility, I've made some investigation and found that:

    Linksys Wireless Network Monitor filename:

    WUSB54Gv4_20050503.exe

    downloaded from here:
    http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...827517&pagename=Linksys/Common/VisitorWrapper

    is not working, but

    Linksys Wireless Network Monitor filename:
    20050906_WUSB54Gv4_v2.0.2.0_CD_3C.exe

    downloaded from here:
    http://www1.linksys.com/international/driver.asp?coid=43&intdlid=26

    is working ok!

    pay attention, second link is ~40Mb...
    it is inclusive of Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0...

    differences are:
    1st file Setup is: v.1.0.0.5
    while 2nd file Setup is: v.1.0.1.2

    hope to have been of any help!

    well..did u tried 2nd link that I posted?

    did you install the version with setup v.1.0.1.2?

    I've tried 1st and was not working, then I found the updated one (the 2nd) and it's working like a charm on my WinXP sp2 laptop, now I'm gonna do the same on my desktop PC...

    Well... initial impression that it seems to work a heck of a lot better with my WUSB54G adapter and my WRT54G 3.1.

    Before I usually had not connection whatsoever when I booted my system. Before the green linksys monitor was almost always greyed out... At least now it activates after a short while. No connection drops either so far...

    So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    Thanks for the great info! :)

    To be honest, I will keep this running for a while, week or so. If it is stable I will keep it.

    I was running the latest official drivers from the linksys site but they gave me nothing but headaches... don't think it was the same as the one you posted though...

    This _3c driver definitely seems to do the trick for me right now.

    Okay, I did have a better connection but have noticed again that on bootup my adapter is not detected.

    I am now using the linksys rt2500usb.sys drivers together with the ralink drivers... So far so good.

    u definitively need to upgrade to rt2500usb.sys from ralink :) (v.2.1.0.0)

    anyway my adapter was always detected by Linksys Wireless Monitor

    So lemme see if I understand you..if I download driver version 2.0.2.0 from the second link, and then upgrade to 2.1.0.0, will my network connectivity (hopefully) be more consistent?

    ...oops, I suppose I should mention that I'm running SP1. Does anyone know that SP2 helps with this stuff?

    ok. this sucks my wusb54g is version 1 and they didnt update the driver for it.

    driver is still like 2 years old and i still get dc

    also the new monitor does not detect the older version so i had to go back to a older monitor
