    Linksys Wireless G Card v4.1 Drivers for Windows 8.1


    I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7, and I cannot get a wireless connection. I have a Linksys Wireless G Card v4.1, and I've attempted to use multiple different drivers, but none of them work. At one point I was able to get a "Network Controller" to show up, but after rebooting my computer, it went away (and I was unable to get it again). Is it possible to get an internet connection with my card and Windows 8.1? Or will I have to stick with Windows 7?

    Thanks for any help!

    What's the exact model of that linksys card? Is this it.... WMP54G Support | Wireless-G PCI Adapter

    Then there are no firmware/drivers for it...which sucks.

    I mean there's none at all for it...for no OS according to that link...so windows must use it's own drivers for it. That's the sucky part.
