    Okay, if you look at my other posts I've been having this problem from the start. I've tried every possible mix of drivers, right now using the Ralink driver with the ralink config utility but either way, if I'm using the zero config, my PC doesn't detect the adapter when I reboot and I have no connection. If I unplug the adapter and plug it in again, it connects. But obviously this is no way to move forward...

    This is driving me nuts... Linksys has given 2 replies on a support request but since then they have ignored me. What kind of bullshit is that?

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe a windows problem?

    Try reinstalling the motherboard chipset+USB drivers. That might help.

    Thanks but in my path to the sollution I have tried reinstalling every combination of every driver I could find, no luck... very occasionaly it is detected on boot but 95% of times I have to unplug, plug it in again.

    no probls here with same adapter and driver...I think it's a motherboard issue...

    Yeah, that is my guess too, a mobo driver issue... On the other hand: I have zero problems with any of my other USB devices.... hmm...

    does your motherboard powers USB devices also when PC is powererd off?
    mine does, maybe this is a hint...

    Yes, it does.... At least for the adapter that isn't working right. My logitech rumblepad 2 receiver is powered down though and so are my other devices.

    Today I tried another WUSB54G adapter... I noticed a very distinct difference in both adapters...

    When I reboot my system, the adapter that is not working right, keeps the led lit.. it does not power down.. Not even when my computer is off... During boot, XP will reset USB connections and temporarily powers down all USB ports. However, this does not happen with the adapter that is giving problems.

    When I try the other adapter adapter it does shut off and power up on reboot and it does do the same when booting XP. It briefly loses power and then powers up again.

    Somehow this adapter is not resetting or something. I have tried changing the CAM when AC power setting but no change. This adapter just keeps getting power....

    Hmm... Any way to hard reset the adapter? Or doesn't it store anything in the adapter itself. I think not.. When I first got this adapter it was working correctly but started acting up after a week.. Not sure if that was after a driver change.

    Monitor not starting?

    Have you disabled wireless zero configuration?
    I had this grey monitor icon starting after a while, but not logging on.
    After disabling wireless zero it works very good :thumb:

    Yes... I have tried that, tried everything...

    The problem is: the adapter is not detected... period... only after unplugging it and plugging it back in again.

    Linksys has finally drawn the conclussion that my adapter is faulty so I will RMA it.
