I have a notebook (sony) with a Linksys Wireless-G (WPC54G) that I have used to connect to wireless networks in hotels and other public use places. I hadn't used it in awhile, but lately I tried in 2 different places and could not connect.
When I insert the card, it never detects any sites. Under the "Link Information" tab in the Linksys program, is shows no signal strength, or link quality and says "Missing the association with the AP". Under the "Site Survey" tab, there are no sites found. Both the "Refresh" and "Connect" buttons are grayed out. Under the "Profiles" tab it shows a default profile with nothing in the SSID block. Profile information for it shows :
In the lower right side of the window it says "WPC54G is Inactive".
I'm not sure if the card is bad, or disabled somehow.
I do know that others could connect to the network at both places.
