Re: XP bluescreens with RT2500.SYS error

Had the some problem with BSOD. WMP54G did not have a version number where instructions on Linksys web site said it should be. Downloaded the version 4.1of the driver and extracted the folders and files to the hard drive. Booted into Safe mode and went to device manager and uninstalled the WMP54G PCI adapter. Ran setup.exe in Utility folder to remove drivers for WMP54G PCI adapter. Then went into the drivers\wmp54gv4.1 folder and right clicked on the rt61.inf and choose install from the drop down menu. Then went to device manger and chose ‘scan for hardware changes’ from the Action menu. Computer detected the WMP54G PCI adapter and I had to point the install to the drivers\wmp54v4.0 to load the notorious rt2500.sys. Computer finished installing the driver and asked to reboot. This was all done in Safe Mode. I restarted the computer and much to my amazement the computer booted successfully and I am now connected to my wireless network with the WMP54G PCI adapter. Hope this helps all the people that are pulling their hair out with this thing like I was.

Re: XP bluescreens with RT2500.SYS error

This just started happening to my daughter's PC.  Bluescreened every time she went into IE.  But it was worse.  It would bluescreen/reboot intermittently without even opening up IE..  You could be working on a Word document, then it would bluescreen and reboot.

 

I followed your instructuins to a T and everything is ok now.  Can't recreate the problem.  Thank you so much.

Hey not a problem, shut down remove the card, start back up in normal node (or safe mode) if normal want work and uninstall the software, then reboot back to windows to make sure of no blue screens then shut down and reinstall the card, boot backup & when windows xp finds the new card just use the windows to manage it. do not install the software that goes with the card. It's worked great on 4 systems so far. Sorry it took me so long to find this.

Re: XP bluescreens with RT2500.SYS error

Thanks. This helped me get some sort of response and connection to a Billion router via this old WMP54V4 PCI Adaptor that is driving me mad.

Unfortunately the connection is now as flakey as a piece of fish.

Strictly speaking I wasn't exactly getting a BSOD. Well, once when I tried to switch from the crappy Linksys connection software, to the native XP software. Now I almost wish I was in the simpler situation of no connectivity because erratic connectivity is so hard to diagnose. Anybody have some tips? I've more configuration options on the Billion router than I can possibly imagine! Then there's the driver Advanced settings tab.

Re: XP bluescreens with RT2500.SYS error

Uninstall the Linksys Wireless Monitor (the utility). Go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the Linksys Monitor. Once the monitor is uninstalled, uninstall the wireless adapter driver. Follow the link below for instructions. After uninstalling the wireless adapter driver, reboot your computer and install the adapter manually without using the CD or setup software. No need to install the utility.
