Re: WMP300N

Has anyone found an answer for this?  I have the same problem as the OP except there is no chance of finding a disk.  I've put it in a Win XP 32bit machine and get the INF error everytime.

Re: WMP300N

what version of the network card are you using?

 

have you tried using the drivers as suggested in here ?

Re: WMP300N

I'm not sure on the version offhand, I can check when I get home.  I'm usinga fresh install of Win XP sp3.  Is that link the same as the driver DL under support?

Re: WMP300N

I keep getting this error when trying to install the WMP300N 5.60.48.35 in Win7 x64.

"The requested device registry key does not exist"

not sure if it is the same error all the rest of you are having with the new driver. I also tried using the modification needsomehelp suggested on bcmwl6.inf, but still same result.

 

Win7 x64 5.60.48.35

Re: WMP300N

I have this issue as well does Cisco not care enough to release working drivers or is this a way to get you to buy a new card?


I tried modifing the bcmwl6 aswell with no luck.

Re: WMP300N

@aibandit, try to manually install adapter driver to this computer and I'm sure this works.

Re: WMP300N

It doesn't, the driver its self is messed up.

Re: WMP300N

manually update the driver and use the bcmwl664.sys file

Re: WMP300N

@ hillary681

By installing from the *.sys file, I assume you mean copying it to the /system or /system32 folder, which I did not try.

I tried going back in again and selecting a *.sys file from the update driver "have disk" button, but you can only select a folder, and then it automatically parses the selected folder for *.inf's and pulls the info from those files.  When I tried selecting either *.sys, I explored to my folder (...\WMP300Nv1_Win7_5_60_48_35\), then entered the sys filename (bcmwl6.sys or bcmwl664.sys), but still got the same error.

[ Edited ]

I am also having trouble installing WMP300N drivers.  I get an error when setting up services.  I am trying a simple WinXP 32 bit install on an AMD box.  My log looks like this:
