WUSB54GS And Access Violation Problems

    Just purchased the WUSB54GS wirless adapter and got it installed OK...or so I thought.

    I can access the net just fine and all appears to be OK but when I reboot...I get two error windows that pop up saying:

    "Access violation at address 004074CD in module WUSB54GS.exe. Read of address 00000368"

    ...and another that reads the same except it has "00426071 instead of "004074CD".

    I am assuming that this message has something to do with the Linksys software that must be installed.

    My question is this: Is there a way to disable what is causing these messages or uninstall the Lynksys software and just install the drivers? Where can I get just the drivers and how do I install them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Access violation

    I'm experiencing exactly the same issue. Has anyone seen a resolution for this problem?

    Me too

    We have 6 of these in service here at home... And we all get the same error message.. If we get them at boot up.. We just clear them.. They are annoying but do not seem to affect the connection...
    My problem other then this is if it forget which SSID it was connected to for some reason.. I have to check the right one and reenter my sercurity setting in the monitor window.. Kind of a pain in the mouse...

    If you find out anything please post it here..

  4. I'm having the same problem. Is there a way to fix this? I'm running Windows 2000pro

    D/l latest drivers/software from Linksys site.. uninstall the existing one and use the new one.. or try the one available at ftp.linksys.com/pub/network... create a new user and install the s/w afresh.

    Access violations consistent on three machines

    I have been seeing errors similar to those you noted, since installing my Linksys GS router and (3) WUSB54GS adaptors on three different machines -- all running XP. (It may be several years now.)
    Based on personal programming experiences, I suspect the error messages are a result of incorrect subroutine returns. Programmers using assembly language (as they often do when coding for hardware peripherals) must be careful, when the program exits from some point far into the code, to restore the stack correctly. Otherwise they may execute some instruction, using a wrong base address, that tries to load or store in a location in memory not assigned to the executing code (often at some small offset from memory location 0). This produces a storage acccess error, which XP seems happy to merely report, and then ignore, since the program is going out of business anyhow.
    It is an easy programming mistake to make, and since XP can recover once it exits the program, this kind of error may remain until a more exacting programmer goes to work in the same part of the code.

    If XP, then a possible turn around is to uninstall the software completely, and install the adapter with only the drivers. Then use the XP's built-in wireless to get connected to the network.

    If 2000, work the same way and install s/w like Boingo or Mcfee's w/l ulitity.

    Don't use the Linksys s/w on both occasions.
