How do I uninstall linksys wusb54gc rt73 wifi adapter? On my other computer with the same adapter I have the driver listed as rt73. On my laptop I have the driver listed as rtl8187. On my laptop, my internet with wusb54gc rtl8187 is limited in range. I have to be within 15 feet on my router. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Check this guide on the linksys wmp54g

You should be able to just disable it if you are going to use a different wireless adapter.

Here is a new question. I get internet with linksys wusb54gc rtl8187 interface, only within 15 feet of my router. Outside of that, I get no internet. Why is my internet so limited in range? Thanks.
