Wont let me install wifi drivers - wmp54gs

April 26, 2009 at 13:51:45
Specs: x64 vista ultimate, 1.8ghz 512mb
The internet connection only stays active for about 10 secons on the computer.

when i try and update the drivers with ones ive found online; vista says it already has the newest version - yet the driver date that vista shows is June 21 2006 - hardly up to date.

So how do i update the driver? Note all the other wifi computers in the house work fine, running xp.

sorry bout that - totally spaced that out - been mad for the last week about my internet - first cable modem caught fire - then wifi router needed to be reflashed for new modem to work - now my vista wifi is dying.

It is a linksys wmp54gs - not sure if it is v 1.0 or v1.1 - however i can certainly pull that card if need be -

Ive read that installing the actual chipset drivers instead of the linksys drivers have a tendency to work better - best ive found is its a b43xxx series chipset, but as for which one specifically, not sure yet.

system requirements at newegg, don't list vista.
the guy in the 2nd review, used the windows driver update function.

several reviewers, state it works with vista , "out of the box", no need to install anything.
