WUSB54Gv4?

    Does anyone have any info about version 4?

    I found the latest driver here: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/international/drivers/WUSB54Gv4_DRUT.zip

    Any idea what the tail "DRUT" of the zipfile stands for? It is dated Nov 6, but contains the current/latest release drivers for version 1 and 2 as well.

    Version 4 appears to be using a Ralink chipset and driver. Version 1 and 2 are based on PRISM chipsets.

    It's an older version - version 1.0.0.0 in fact, despite carrying a later date on the server.

    The letters SG probably represents Singapore, so my guess it's non-US version. In any case, non-US version drivers (except Japanese) should work fine with US adapters.


    What kinds of signal quality problems are you referring?

    hi Esquire and lswlink, I'm from Singapore and I'm using the wusb54g.

    I'm not sure whether u guys have seen this driver:
    ftp.linksys.com/sg/support/download/wireless_ethernet/WUSB54G_DRIVER/beta/WUSB54Gv4_20041101.zip

    It comes under the Singapore directory. Its size is 7.35mb which is different from the "DRUT" driver that is 7.85mb. It is also posted on Nov 14, 8 days after the DRUT driver was posted.

    I'm going to check out whether the SG Nov 14 driver is stable. The inital monitor driver 4.0 provided in the cd seems to have a memory leak and I'm looking for an updated (beta if available) version.

    This is a great forum and I hope more users can post their findings!

    Thanks for pointing out the beta.

    The Singapore beta carries a slightly newer V4 adapter driver than the DRUT. As with all driver updates, one should always compare driver version numbers rather than date references.

    DRUT: 1.2.0.0
    S'pore: 1.2.1.0

    (I don't usually look at Wireless Connection Manager versions since I don't use the application at all and I have yet to find a way to extract the version number without installing it)

    Esquire, I believe u need not use WCM because you're using WinXP's built-in Connection Manager right? I'm using the drivers on both Win98SE and Win2K systems, so I still require WCM. Is it better to use WCM or Window's built-in manger?

    With the latest SG Nov 14 drivers, WCM is now updated to 4.1 from 4.0. Good news: I have not experienced WCM hanging when changing my profile on my WIN98SE system. I am still testing the newer drivers on Win2K.

    Right. You only need either Linksys WCM or XP's WZC in Windows XP.

    From my own experience (albeit 2 years ago with WCM released at the time), I much prefer WZC, but I wouldn't suggest you upgrade your current systems solely on account of WZC :lol: If you are satisfied with your current system setup, stick to it.

    I've found a newer Version on the ftp Server
    Here...
    What is the S-Version (SpeedBooster)
    Is it a special HardwareVersion or Only driver for every wusb54g ?!

    The WUSB54G and WUSB54GS are different products, with the latter having SpeedBooster support (hence the extra S in the model number), which is a competing technology with, but not identical to, Super-G. You will need full SpeedBooster support on your network, i.e., router and clients, to benefit from the technology.
