Linksys WMP54G probs with BX mobo

  1. Hi,

    I have just bought my 2nd Linksys WMP54G today. The 1st works fine, and was
    the reason to get the other one for my old PIII. However, the new WMP54G
    doesn't work with that system. Once inserted, there is no video after and
    familier beep. Even when I remove all add-on cards (except for the VGA card)
    and disable COM & LPT ports it will not boot with the WMP54G inserted. The
    WMP54G works fine in 2 other systems, so the card must be OK.

    The system concerned is a PIII with:
    a AOpen a6bp plus motherboard (440 BX chipset)
    onboard SCSI (disabled)
    512 MB memory

    Any idea what the issue can be?

    Thx. in Adv.

    I have just had the same experience with that card in two different BX
    motherboards. Looks like an incompatibility with the BX chipset to me.

  3. Eric,
    Have you tried the card in different PCI slots on the mother board. I have
    an ABIT BE6-II mother board that uses the same chip set, on my MB some PCI
    slots share IRQs. This can cause a conflict. Not sure if your board has the
    same issue.
