Excellent product, when it works.

Chronaut "Chronaut", Amazon

  • Summary: I have 12 of these puppies in our network, and I use them with the WAP54A access point. All in all they offer great speed, I typically see the advertised 54 Mbps speed range. The only thing that riles me about the WPC54A is the fact that you will have a hard time making it work with a totally plug...

DO NOT BUY THIS THING--NEW OR USED!!!

  • Summary: These things do not work. I have two of them that I can't get to function in any PC I put them in. I tried them on Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP. One of them totally locks up every PC I put them in. I got the other one to work for about 5 minutes and then it has never worked since.

A Product or Support Issue?

Rick Symthe "axispowers", Amazon
20 September 2003
  • Summary: I purchased a Linksys WPC54A and a WAP54A. The WPC54a card will not work. Not under WIN XP, not under WIN 98SE. Calling Linksys tech support (on 3 separate occasions) did not help.

WPC54A Review

Amazon
10 February 2003
  • Summary: I am extremely happy with this product and its corresponding WAP54A wireless access point. I would steer clear of the dual-band as I have heard and seen nothing but bad news on that product.

Michael S. Chambers, Amazon

WPC54A for Christmas :-(

Michael Hoyt "SanDiegoSeahawk", Amazon
30 December 2002
  • Summary: I asked my wife to get me this and the dual-band WAP from Linksys for Christmas. Normally I do my homework and research something before I buy it, in this case I didn't and I got burned. I am seeing a lot of the same problems that have been reported here. I have a Toshiba Satellite running XP.

Unending pain and suffering

Amazon
10 December 2002
  • Summary: I've had pretty good luck with other Linksys products in the past, but this thing will drive you insane. I am using a Dell Inspiron 8200 with XP Home Edition and the new Linksys dual band AP. One day it works, the next day it won't...literally. Lots of bluescreens and hangups.

This card ...... and it's not a Linksys issue....or is it?

Dave D., Amazon
19 November 2002
  • Summary: I am trying to use this wireless card in a Dell Latitude C810. Big mistake. This card merely causes the system to hard lock up and a reboot is necessary to get it back. Upgrading the BIOS had no effect. Apparently, D-Link is having the same issues with their card based on the same Atheros chipset.

WPC54A problems.

Amazon
12 November 2002
  • Summary: The card installed properly with the shipped drivers on a Win98SE machine, but file transfers stopped every 6-8 seconds for 1 to 2 seconds. Just enough to sometimes disconnect the remote machine. New drivers on Linksys Web page (1.04.00.39) fixed the problem, but disabled Turbo Mode.
