Getting the WUSB54GC to work as it should.

Aug 14, 2013 – update

OK, back later than excpected (only a little over a year this time). Noticed there were some comments telling me the links for the Windows 32-bit drivers were dead (again), so I updated them and they should be working again.

Until next time, bye!

June 13, 2012 – update

After nearly three years I found this site again thanks to a visitor who left a comment notifying me that all the links for the Windows XP 32-bit drivers were broken. I found the drivers on my computer and uploaded them again, this time to five new locations.

For Windows Vista 32-bit / Windows XP 64-bit and Vista 64-bit I have no clue if the links still work / are helpful though.

Anyway, see you in another 3 years 🙂

A lot of people, including me, have had problems with the Linksys WUSB54GC WiFi USB-stick. The official Linksys drivers work poorly, and Linksys themselves are not very interested in fixing the issues with their own drivers.

Below I have published some tricks on how to get the WUSB54GC to work as it should, for Windows XP 32/64 and Vista 32/64. I personally use Windows XP 32 and have compiled a custom driver package from different sources which works good for me, e.g. no connection drops or hang-ups. For the other operating systems, please see the links to the excellent guides made by some other WUSB54GC users.

Windows XP 32-bit

Just download the custom drivers in the link below, and update the driver for your WUSB54GC (I’ve uploaded the driver to several places in case some of them stop working).

Windows Vista 32-bit

Please see the following link: http://www.decimation.com/markw/2007/12/04/wusb54gc-and-vista/ (also contains some general information regarding the WUSB54GC, good place to start if you’re still having trouble!)

Windows XP 64-bit and Vista 64-bit

    Thanks for keeping this download up even after all these years! Unfortunately my dad is still stuck on XP so I have to bear with it! 😛

      No problem, my mission is to have the only working version of the XP-drivers on the Internet, and I plan to have it online for people who use XP even when we have flying cars 😀

    Thank you so much for this drivers! I use XP 32 32 bits and I had been searching for this driver for so long, but any one worked untill I found this one from your page and the driver is only 3 files on it. Thanks again 😀 My laptop doesn’t have a Wifi card, so I have to use this adapter to surf by Wifi. (Sorry for my poor english).
