Linksys knows about it.
I also have the linksys and a Compaq!
My compaq is older (1622) running Win98 SE. I can not install using the "normal" method, as I do not have IE 5.5 (required apparently to use the linksys install program. I installed the utillity and driver from the utility subdirectory off the linksys cd (I do not know how else I could install the linksys driver. Win 98 is a Clean install.
I get the "external exception e06d7363" if I start the utilty with the card not in place, then insert the card. If I start the utility with the card, I get a different error (don't have the system up right now... Reinstalling SE again...)
I need some ideas that will work under Win98! I can not configure all options in the windows driver like in XP...
Any ideas how I can D/L and Install IE 6 from a Win XP system so I can install it on my Win 98 system? XP seems not to let up D/L the whole thing, just the installer...
No fix I fear.
I didn't get it to work with 98. I had to find a 98se and use the latest driver.
I got the same problem but I couldn't find a work a round.
If you now the answer pls. let me know
How about Linksys knows about this?
You may not be checking former replies.
Not for the squeamish
Just today I had a similar experience with a friend's Dell laptop running Win2K and the same wireless NIC. Not sure if I believe the dll versioning issue completely (although I'm sure it's a factor).
Originally started getting the error:
10093:successful wsastartup not yet performed
after which I tried the prescribed winsock fix to no avail and also started the manual steps outlined here:
Failed on the reinstallation of TCPIP protocol as it was not in the pick list so I tried to delete TCPIP protocol from NIC at which point the system crashed. System recovered and I reinstalled TCPIP, rebooted, at which point I got the same error you did endlessly until I stopped it in Task Manager.
I then removed the NIC, uninstalled the Linksys utility, rebooted, reinstalled Linksys utility, and everything started working.
On a whim I tried to reproduce the problem by restoring back the old registry and I got the 10093 error but once I cleared the TCPIP protocol, got crash (as expected), and reinstalled protocol, things started to work right away and I did not get stuck back in the infinite error loop.
As a result I'd guess the causes were a few things:
1. installation may have been partially faulty, dll problem or otherwise
2. TCPIP problems in registry
One thing I could not confirm was if my friend installed the program before inserting card as per Linksys's emphatic instructions. This was the reason I removed the card and did the whole uninstall/reinstall dance.
Hope this helps.

External exception E06D7363 w/ Linksys-Jeffericon
Did you end up resolving this issue? I just got a new router and connected the router to my modem this weekend. Everything was fine until I started up my laptop this afternoon and the continual pop-up with "external exception E06D7363" kept coming up as well as an "Odessy windows installer" which Im not sure what that is either.
Can you please help???!!!!
Doesn't sound like the same issue.
If you don't have a linksys, then you can't use the answer.
Maybe the same issue
I think I recall seeing that name pop up as well in the All Programs list. I believe the Linksys utility may be installing this.
Why would you use a Linksys utility on a non-Linksys product
Uninstall Linksys software
I uninstalled the Linksys utility, re-connected the adapter, let Windows detect it and install the driver (from the Linksys CD), and used Windows to totally manage the adapter instead of using the Linksys software. I had no problems since. Hope this works for you as well.
Thanks for Uninstall Linksys software

Same Card - Can I get a copy of the uninstall utility?
I have the same card and same problem. Could you send me the uninstall utility. I believe my profile is set up for you to email me from there. Thanks.
My email address is email@example.com
Dear Mr. Loomis: I seem to be having the same problem as you, constantly getting the External exception E06D7363 when I try to open my Linsys program. Linksys tells me to uninstall/install but my computer won't let me uninstall. If you were able to get the Uninstall Utility, could you possibly email it to me. This is my first time to use CNET forum, so I hope I am doing it correctly. Thanks, Mel Less, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...I have been searching and searching for the resolution to this issue, and this is the one that did it. I feel pretty silly not having tried that before, but as soon as I saw your comment, I thought, 'of course', and away we went.

Linksys Wireless USB Adapter
I have a Linksys Wireless Adapter on my desktop and I keep dropping the signal. I called Linksys nd they told me to use XP for my wireless connection. They also told me to uninstall my Linksys software, but my system is not allowing me to do so, I even tried ad/remove software and still could not remove it. Anyone knopw what I shoul do?
Since your issue is not the issue of topic, I suggest you not bury your request in someone else's discussion.
Just a little more help
Thanks for all the info - I'm not quite there yet...
I've uninstalled the Linksys software, plugged in the card and installed the drivers. I can connect to the wireless router using the Windows application, but can't send / receive data. Pinging the router just times out. Any ideas?
I am running a Compaq/HP nx9005 on WinXP Pro.
Let us know if it helps.
Thanks for the suggestion. It didn't work. When I first start up, I can connect to the network BUT once "connected" I can't access the I'net, nor even ping my router (times out).
Oddly, if I then disconnect from the WiFi connection then try to reconnect, it won't reconnect at all.
I really am confused. Any other thoughts?
The other issues are oversecuring the network before we have it working. Some will install firewalls, enable WEP/WPA/other, disable SSID and more before they get it working.
My lessons learned is to start with a working network, then add the security.
