Linksys WMP54G can't connect to wireless networks in Windows 10

I have a Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI card that worked with Windows 7, and I've upgraded to Windows 10.

 

In theory, the driver should also work under Windows 10 because there's a Windows 7 compatability option which I've selected for the card. Looking in the device manager for the card, it's working correctly, yet I can't see any wireless networks!

 

Anyone have any ideas as to how I can connect to wireless networks in Windows 10, using the card?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hi jmc2000. The WMPC54G is not guaranteed to work properly with a Windows 10 operating system as there is not yet an available Windows 10 driver for this adapter.

I am having the same problem with WMP54G on Windows 10.
How come no drivers exist?

From what I can get off of Wikidevi, there is no support from the chip manufacturer for 10. Says it was released in 2004 or 2005, and the drivers have been removed from the chip manufacturers site, probably due to it being passed it's "End Of Life" or "End of Support".
