Bluescreen Error, Linksys Driver the cause?

  1. Recently I have been getting stop errors from windows, a blue screen flashes and then it reboots. This happens at random points, online or off. I stopped the automatic reboot and this was the bluescreen:


    Technical information

    ***STOP:0x000000D1 (0x24105a19, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF6931CD9)

    *** RT2500.sys - Address F6931CD9 base at F691B000, Datestamp 42675C99

    In googling this, I have found that this is usually caused by a driver conflict, and rt2500.sys is my linksys model WMP54G version 4 wireless network card's latest device driver. There are no newer drivers, and it has worked fine up until this point. If anyone has any insight on this (perhaps I'm way off base), please let me know. Thanks!

    I'm getting the same BSOD error message for rt2500.sys, which was the driver supplied with my Belkin 802.11g wireless card. Anyone out there got any ideas?

    Many people have had issues with this wireless adapter driver. One such workaround would be to completely uninstall your router's software from your PC and then reinsatll the software.

    A quicker way might be to update your drivers from Belkin's website.

    The version 4.1 contains another rt2500 however this time its 238 k instead of 8 k hope this helps, so recap you would download linksys wmp54g version 4.1 unzip and update driver pointing it to the drivers folder wmp54gv4.0
