External exception E06D7363 with Linksys Wireless Card
by jeffericon - 5/29/05 3:51 PM
I have just installed a Linksys Wireless-G 802.11g Notebook Adapter (WPC54G v2) in my laptop(details below) with the following settings:
1) Infrastructure Mode
2) Network Settings Obtained Automatically (DHCP)
3) Encryption Method: Disabled
When trying to use the Linksys software to enable the adapter card, the error message "External exception E06D7363" keeps on popping up endlessly. The only way to disable the pop-up is to use Task Manager to end the process. With the card attached, there is no way of accessing the Linksys utility because of the endless error pop-ups. Without the card attached, I can start up the Linksys Adapter Utility. The driver supplied with the adapter is the same as the latest driver on the Linksys download site.
Bypassing the Linksys utility and letting Windows manage the adapter results in a network being recognised but unable to connect to (although there is sufficient signal strength). I have even disabled Norton Internet Security as well as Spybot and Counter Spy without success.
