    Hello, I'm having a bit of a problem with my new Windows XP. Whenever I minimize or maximize a window, there's this little beeping sound. At first I thought maybe there were specific sounds that were played for those actions, but I checked, and there are no sound bites attached to those. In fact, I then unplugged my speakers, and I could still hear the sounds, so apparently it's some kind of problem and it's coming straight from my PC. I just can't figure out what it is. The only thing I know of that doesn't seem to be working correctly is my wireless adapter. When I reboot/shut down my PC, it makes some kind of error. This is what it says...

    Linksys Wireless Network Monitor: WUSB54GS.exe - Application error.
    The instruction at "0x004ad57c" referenced memory at "0x02af1be2". The memory could not be "read".

    I've searched these terms on the internet, yet produced nothing about them, so I don't know if they will say much. Am I the only person with this adapter? It seems like no one has any information on it at all, so I'm hoping there's at least someone out there with some experience with it. If anyone has any idea at all what could be causing these things and if they're the same problem or not, I would really appreciate it. If you need anymore information to be able to help figure this out, just ask me. Thanks a bunch in advance.

    Do not waste your time scrapping your machine. I have a FRESH install of XPsp2 and a semi-abused 2k having the same problems with the WUSB54GS(uck). You are not alone.

    Linksys support (direct) is being unresponsive to my requests at this time.

    I have the (hex code) bla bla (hex code) cannot be read problem on Restart/Shutdown. It happens (exact same msg) on both my 2k and XP machines.

    I do not experience the sound errata occurring during min/max actions, like you do.

    Linksys recommended resolutions (so far) included:

    1. proper installation of the software CD (or downloaded drivers) PRIOR to hooking up the USB device (which I did)

    2. checking and updating the firmware (these devices are BRAND NEW, dated like 9/1/2004!!, no new firmware is available)


    3. setting the wusb54gs service to run as administrator

    Trying #3 (because 1 was done and 2 is currently unavailable) seemed to help out on the 2K machine; however, on the XP machine it complicated things to where the connection only stays activated for EXACTLY 15 minutes and then goes DEAD. The router DHCP tables show that the connection is alive but is then NAMELESS after 15 minutes.

    I *did* upgrade the firmware on the router, just in case there were any outstanding issues on the speedbooster router. I'm REALLY angry about the (lack of) support that I've been getting from Linksys via e-mail. I might take the time to call them tonight and get them on the phone about their shoddy software with this device release.

    I will repost if I find any new information that makes this device successfully WORK!!!!!

    Has Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP been disabled? You won't need it if you use Linksys Wireless Connection Manager, and WZC can interfere the connection if left enabled.

    Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
    Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and make sure its Startup type is displaying Disabled.

    I wanted to add a "me too" here. I just (10/23/05) bought a WRT54G and a WMP54G. I hooked them up following the instructions exactly. I wasn't able to find newer firmware. Where can you find a newer version of the Linksys Wireless Network Monitor? I'm running version 1.4 currently. When starting and stopping Windows, I get the error about the 'memory could not be "read"'. WZC is disabled in my Services. I'm running XP SP2. Anyone had any luck with this?

    Alright.... "Me too." I've just built two totally different hardware Win XP SP2 machines with these adapters (WUSB54G V4), downloaded the latest drivers as of today, and I get this error, too - on both of them. WZC is off.

    For me, it only happens when XP is shutdown or logged out of, and only randomly at that. I'd have to presume the driver's memory cleanup routines are faulty, and that Linksys will have to fix this.
    I'm going to have to try setting the service run as admin, there has to be a reason for the 15 minute limit on connection...
