My uncle gave me a Linksys WMP54G PCI card to replace my crappy antenna I had plugged into a motherboard USB port.

I am trying to follow the directions in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2EEedo2rv8

I want to install the Version 4.1 Drivers for my WMP54g card like in the video. However when I am done with the installation, I get a pop up in the bottom right taskbar saying my drivers for the Linksys WMP54G have been successfully installed, meaning Windows 7 is being a pos and automatically "updating" the drivers to version 3.2 (which I i dont f$@king want) the very second AFTER i install version 4.1 drivers. It kills the performance of my wireless connection meaning I have to reenable this stupid antenna to google a fix

- Turning off windows update does not stop it.

- Turning off windows update does not stop it

- Telling windows to never install automatic driver updates does not fix it

Stop Windows 7. Stop installing old drivers I do not want and am not authorizing you to do so. You are annoying me

Come through for me once again TH.com pls

After telling Windows not to install automatic updates, uninstall the unwanted driver through device manager and check the box that says "delete software for this device".

You will need to extract the driver package, put it in a folder on the Hd.
Then go to your control panel , click on system security.
Where system is listed, click on device manager.
Then click on device manager.
You then need to find the wireless adapter in the list.
Right click on the device listed and choose update driver, browse computer to update driver software.
navigate to the folder you placed of the extracted driver Inf file click on it then ok.
That should do the trick.
