Linksys WUSB54G V4 Driver Download for Windows 7 x64 bit & Vista

This is a not a typical marketing, social media and/or IBM post. Just wanted to share a fix that I had created for anyone else who is stuck with below average Linksys support for WUSB54G driver for 64 bit OS.

I recently decided to test Windows 7 64 bit on a computer I had lying around. To my surprise, the install was very smooth, most of the hardware was detected automatically and the whole process was completed in less than an hour.

The only catch was that I have a Linksys WUSB54G Wireless-G adapter on this computer (I know PCI based Wifi card would’ve been better). For a box that I barely use, I refuse to invest in Ethernet wiring or a better wifi adapter. Of course, Linksys doesn’t support x64 platforms at all. Let’s not even mention Windows 7. Luckily, the manufacturer of the chip set does, RAlink, kinda, I’ll explain this later.

Here’s how to run Linksys WUSB54G on Windows 7 or Windows Vista 64 bit.

Download the rt2500 driver, since its not linksys, modify the setup info to match the new device ID and few other parameters and you are set. Or I could spare you the 2 hours of hair tearing web research that I spent on this and will just include it in a package that I’ve created for other souls looking for a driver which works on Windows 7 64 bit, Windows XP 64 Bit and most likely Vista x64.

Download the Linksys WUSB54G driver package here:

Don’t worry about Windows calling the adapter a different name. Enjoy.

Over 2459K! of you have been successful in prolonging the use of this adapter. If you are satisfied, please consider donating $1 to $5. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the local Toronto based charity of my choice (I’ll balance it out). It’s the least we can do!

At least we are lucky enough to be worried about drivers. Many others are seeking food, shelter, protection instead.

    MAN!
    Thank you so much!!! I’ve been dying trying to figure that out! I have dual hard drives but I’ve been using Vista 32-bit because the Linksys thing didn’t work on Windows 7 64-bit RC. I’ve put in a few hours trying to find a fix and had all but given up!! That package worked flawlessly!

    I’m glad that my post has helped someone! Pass it on! Linksys should’ve created this themselves.

    Cool stuff, man. Thanks a lot!

    You wouldn’t mind directing us to a website that teaches you how to modify the set up info would you? That seems like it would be a pretty interesting thing to learn how to do.

    Jason, you are welcome. Unfortunately, it wasn’t one website, I went through various discussion forums, tech blogs and then cross referenced related chipsets and that’s how it worked.

    I wish I had bookmarked and documented the sites but as you can imagine, I was too excited to see it work.

    Thanks for the driver, I am having a problem installing it. Windows 7 hangs at the “Installing driver software” screen.

    Obviously when I plug in the usb adapter, W7 can’t install it, throws me an error. So I go to the device manager and select it from the unknown devices. I click the update driver button, it asks me whether I should let W7 locate the driver, or choose it myself – choose it myself.

    W7 then brings up a screen asking what type of device it is, I choose Network Adapter. Onward, I locate the rt2500usb file. I then get a list of Adapters to choose from. I choose the Conceptronics… adapter (since no linksys). It hangs…….

    Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thank you for putting the time into this driver.

    Michael, have you tried Vista’s 32Bit driver off Linksys’s website?

    I do recommend that you try Windows X64 as I guarantee you that there will be a push towards 64bit with Windows 7. Higher RAM utilization and stability for instance.

    Bilal, I want to use Windows 7 x64, but I have a notebook with only 2 gig ram so I don’t think there will be much benefit for me. The Vista 32Bit driver off Linksys’s website didn’t work for me. The RT2500 driver in Linux works good, though. I can even inject packets.
