Wireless Router Problem

#1
Hi, i recently installed the windows 7 beta, but i have found that my wireless router ( Linksys Wmp54G Ver 4) does not work. I have tried troubleshooting this problem, but all it tells me is the router can not be found. Switching the router to different slots also did not help. I am wondering if anyone else is currently suffering from this problem or have created a solution. Thanks in advance!

Troubleshoot report:

Windows did not detect a properly installed wireless network adapter. If you have a wireless network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver.

(Installing the drivers didn't work too and device manager does not have my wireless router listed in the network adapters section.)

I have a WUSB54G Linksys Wireless Adapter and it is built off the same specs and drivers as the one you have stated. I have tried every driver on the face of this planet to get it to work but it will not work. It is listed correctly but windows 7 just cant use it on the wireless connection properly. Unfortunately i am going to say that at this time we are stuck with not being able to use those.

Hey! I got my linksys router to work by plugging in my ethernet cable to install the windows update. Router works perfectly right now.

I got my router to work by installing the most recent windows updates. A ethernet cable is required to install the updates.

I hate to rub salt into the wounds, Iroken. I have the same router. On installation, After putting in the WEP for my Lan, it automatically connected to the Internet.
I assume that you do get a hardwire connection? It crossed my mind that perhaps it is your computer card which is causing the probem?This is also appliceable to the OP, as he is getting a message that the adapter is not working, not the router The router is not normally listed in the Device manager.
Obviously, bypassing the router, which the OP did (second post), gave him an Internet connection, which I am sure updated the ethernet card, not the router.
