    I got this usb network adapter, the version number in the title, and im so sick of the utillity, its the most unstable piece of software ive seen.

    I called linksys today, because i kept getting disconnected. I convinced them to replace it, but i seriously think its the utility that is making me disconnect.

    Ill give the new one a try but does any1 know how to access internet without the linksys utility? Any third party drivers to install?? (i know they make 3rd party firmware, not sure about drivers)

    I found a sorta "hack" around the utility - use the registry cleaner linksys sent me via email to manually uninstall the utility but the windows xp wireless thing still works but it seems slower.

    I tried convincing them to give me a wireless g usb adapter, but they wouldnt let me

    Any help?

    Linksys utilities suck!

    I agree with you 100%! I recently got so frustrated trying to upgrade my WUSB54G drivers that I finally admitted defeat and uninstalled the entire linksys utility and only left the driver. I was experiencing so many disconnects and problems with the linksys utilities that I reverted back to using the wireless utility in Windows XP and all has been well ever since. I wish linksys would really look at their quality control procedures and begin implementing some reforms. Their software across the board really leaves a lot to be desired and I run Alchemy on all of my routers to eliminate them completely! Sorry I couldn't give you a better fix than that but the truth is that linksys software and in particular their utilities are real garbage!

    Thanks for the post you just saved me some money I was actually going to by one for my sons computer. Than again I've never liked linksys nics or even netgear but I do love 3com wireless nics. 3com actually has a usb one that I will purchase.
