I recently purchased the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter card from Linksys (WPC54G) and was able to successfully install and use it on an HP Pavillion N5310 notebook running WinME (yea...I know it's old but it does the job)

Since Norton doesn't make anything that supports WinME, I was directed to CA (Computer Associates)'s Internet Security Suite 2007. I was able to get that to properly install.

HOWEVER, everytime I try to get the wireless card up and running again, I get an error that "Odhost has caused an error in ODSERVICE.DLL. Odhose will now close."

With that, I can't get Linksys to open or activate the card.

Are there known problems with the two interacting with eachother? Or anyone have any ideas?

Any help would be MOST appreciated. Thanks!

Since that's what you installed last, and it broke the wireless connection, it's a logical assumption that's the problem application. Did you contact CA tech support?

I'm having the same issue with ME and the wireless card. Also, this card will not see my wireless network. While trying to fix the connection issue, Linksys sent me to a link that fixed the odhost problem.

http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...837314B253&displaypage=download#versiondetail
Select the version as version 2, then install the driver 3.100.64.

Hope this helps you. Unfortunately the adapter still won't see my network, so I'm still working on that. :rolleyes:

Gotcha. That worked for me. Thanks a bunch!! Got rid of the Odhost problem and parts seem to working with less problems. However, now I have the same problem as you, no networks found. Go figure. If only ME was as easy to work with as XP. I'll keep working on viewing networks too. Good Luck

Linksys finally told me that the WPC54GS card doesn't work with Windows ME. Guess I should have looked at the box closer. :( Anyway, I'll be getting another card. Hope you find a better solution.
