Preferred Solution: lynksys ae1000 not digitally signed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm looking at my DirectX Diagnostic tool and it says for a few things
"The file ati2dvag.dll is not digitally signed" under Video, and "The file RtkHDAud.sys is not digitally signed" under sound 1 and 2. is this a serious problem? it might help solve why I've had a few crashes when playing games maybe? If anyone can help I will be very grateful, especially by telling me how to get these "signed"

Answer:Not Digitally signed?

I know very little about this kind of stuff but I think it just means it's a driver that hasn't been registered with Microsoft, or something along those lines. I don't believe it affects the operation of the thing.

Hi Guys, I did a search of my OS, and found some Drivers not digitally signed.Is that a problem,as my PC is functioning OK.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers.

Hi D,
Your ok for the most part. A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or that was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on x64-based versions of Windows. As a result, you will see this message ( Windows cannot install this driver ) if you are running an x64-based version of Windows.

The only other time (I think) may be if you updat a driver. again you may get that can't install it error. You can visit the device manufacturer's support website to obtain a digitally signed driver for your device.

I have had to reinstall Windows 7 64-bit edition, and when I go to install PCWizard or Everest Home Edition, I keep getting an error about drivers not being digitally signed, and Windows will not install them. Before I reinstalled Windows 7, I had both of these programs running just fine. Is there anyway I can change the fact that Windows 7 will let me install those drivers?

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers?

The only way for 64 bit versions of Vista or Win7 to work without digitally signed drivers is to start them up using F8 to get teh Advanced Startup and disable the Digitally Signed Driver service.

If you had them working before did you make sure all your drivers now are current?

Dear All,
A vendor website sporadically release's MSI's which are digitally signed (plugins to run the content). These are required for the website to function.
Users are more in number so we can't manually install the MSI and time is a constraint.
Packaging / Repackaging is not a quick solution
App-locker doesn't bypass UAC, AUTO IT didn't help, Manifest and shim are only for Exe's.
We are looking for a solution where in since these are digitally signed MSI's Users should be able to install them automatically without being asked for the credentials.

Answer:driver is not digitally signed

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

G'day. I'm trying to install my old VisionPLus DVB-T card into a Windows 7 O/S box and it won't recognise any of the old drivers. When I try to install the TwinHan Digital tv software, Windows can't/ won't install them.

I've downloaded and tried the latest (DigitalTV 3.4 Build 19-02_20090212) and windows comes up with "Driver not found". I've tried to install in compatability mode but still no good.

When installing the above, it identifies my card as “PCI CX-87A with MCU DVB-S/-C/-T/ATSC card”.

Out of all the available drivers on Twinhan's site, which would be the best for my card?

The one written for Vista would be my choice, probably not one for W7 yet, may never be.

Looks like MS ha removed a way to disable unsigned drivers protection in Vista64, so probably is the same for 7

Looks like unsigned drivers are a no go for x64 Vista and Windows 7, well there are some workarounds in the article above, sounds like a hassle.

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

However, when installing the x64 version of MagicDisc/MagicISO I get the following error:

Can I get around this?

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

Answer:windows require a digitally signed driver xp 32 sp2

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

From what I know if these progams are running and they aren't digitally signed then they are most likely a form of a virus. I can manually find the official conhost.exe from windows/system32 and run it, that creates a separate instance of it running, making two, the official and the supposed virus. Neither of the supposed virus executables do not open any properties when I right click and select properties from the task manager, which is another red flag. I ran a fully updated malwarebytes scan and an avast scan outside of windows and had no returns of an infection. I could not find the location of the virus executables and I am looking for some help.

Why is everyone saying Vista 64-bit won't install unsigned drivers? I installed the latest beta driver from nvidia and Vista warned that it was unsigned but gave me an option to install anyway.

Am I missing something/misinterpretting this or was this only the case in the Beta/RC verisons of Vista and everyone keeps bringing it up (kind of like requiring UAC for changing backgrounds; people still say Vista does it)?

Answer:Digitally signed drivers required under Vista 64-bit?

Short answer: The effects of FUD.

Long answer: The truth is, it was never stated on any official documents that Vista wouldn't accept unsigned drivers. The real mechanism is how Vista handles such drivers, in that the permission level changes, but that's such a 'behind the scenes' object that some ppl though it cooler to just say, "NOEZ, the sky is falling!".

Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.

Answer:windows requires digitally signed driver

Welcome to the Vista forums

1) You don't want to disable UAC (User Account Control) as it does a lot to protect your computer from various malware. If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

Hi all, hoping this is the right subforum

I built a HTPC a few years ago and it had suited my needs fine. Relevant parts used are:
i3-3225 CPU,Scythe Big Shuriken 2 RevB,Asus P8-H77 Pro,2 x 4GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 1600 RAM,Samsung 830 Series 64Gb SSD (OS HDD),WD Cavier Green 2TB (Media HDD),

I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but kept receiving errors, such as the partition was not GPT (0xc000021a). The one error that happens every time I tried to upgrade or install Windows 10 was winload.exe was not digitally signed. I wiped the drive, reformatted it as NTFS, converted to GPT and installed W10 from blank and still had the same winload.exe error. Right now I have put W7 Ultimate 64bit back on and am installing all the windows updates.

My question is, does anyone know why I keep get a winload.exe not digitally signed error? I have downloaded the W10 upgrade files numerous times, redownloaded the media creation tool, set clean boot, even tried downloading the upgrade and creating a usb drive with it from a different PC but same error.

Is there perhaps some upgrades that I should make my HTPC?

Answer:W7 Upgrade error - winload.exe is not digitally signed

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

Answer:Lynksys Router

The informaiton in the manual for the linksys is not nearly enough to tell you how to open a computer to the internet through port forwarding, there is alot you have to know. The reason you cannot connect without your router hooked up is because your ISP is attached to the MAC address on your router, you have to call them and tell them to change it.

Answer:Lynksys cable/dsl router help

This is my standard answer to most networking problems, check that your PCs are setup correspondingly. It is generally faster to use fixed IPs rather than DHCP handing them out. That might be the cause of your delay.
Make sure ICS is not switched on on that W98 PC.

A few basic setups when networking:

Router-setup WAN:
Protocol: Fixed IP
IP-address, Subnetmask and default Gateway: as per ISP-information
DNS-servers: as per ISP-information
Enable NAT

Router-setup LAN:
IP-address: set to e.g. (or use default)
DHCP-server: disable

Router: Some System-settings (depending on your router)
Optional SNTP (time): e.g. for UK/Ireland (GMT)
uPnP: disable
Dynamic routing: disable
Remote config: disable
Dynamic DNS: disable
Firewall: Block hacker attack: enable
Firewall: Block WAN request: enable
VPN: disable all settings unless you need it

Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Use the following IP address: (102, 103 etc.)
Default Gateway: (IP-address from your Router)
Use DNS Server address: (IP-address from your Router)
Second DNS: leave blank or put in first DNS-server from WAN-part in Router

Enable File/Printer sharing if you wish (works only within local network)
Check individual printer(s) that they are shared as well (in printer-settings)

And make sure all your PCs are in the same WORKGROUP.

Answer:lynksys router problem

If your router is set up for DHCP and your new computer has a Static IP address- this may be the culprit. Try;

Control panel>network and internet connections>network connections

right click on local area conection and then click on properties

click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)- Is the box checked "Optain and IP address automatically"? If not- check this box. Click ok and then cancel out of the control panel and try again.

If this doesent work- try;

follow the steps above and get to local area connection and click on it once just to highlight it. On the left hand side find the wrench icon next to "Repair this connection". Click on it and let it do its thing. Once done- cancel out of control panel and try again.

Answer:wireless problems lynksys

I'm not really sure if the IPs are statically assigned or not, unfortunately. The default IP appears to be the same on both of our laptops. I know that, at times, it's routine to clear out the reserve on the Linksys router, but the connectivity issues occur several times daily, often while we are logged on (ie, we don't have to log off and then log back in to experience the problem). Linksys. The router seems to be able to pick up signals--we generally get 2 or more wireless connectivity options. But it seems that something isn't quite right, as our own connection (Comcast) seems to drop off and on even though our router is only about 15 feet away from our laptops.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated as this has become a daily source of frustration in our lives.

In Zone Alarm both adapters are showing up, but just the B has an IP Address. When I added the G adapter, I didn't find any way to configure it in Zone Alarm.

Anyway, I am wondering if the G adapter will make the wireless connection faster, or should I just stick with the B?

I have 2 pcs hardwired to a Linksys router that is connected to a cable modem. Both pcs get to the Ineternet fine. All I want to do is transfer files between the two computers and still be able to connect to the Internet via the cable modem from both pcs. I have a crossover cable, but not sure why I would need it if I'm connected to the router. I have zero knowledge of setting up networks.

Answer:Cable modem to Lynksys Router to 2 pcs - how?

If both computers are successfully connecting to the Internet through the router, you do not need the crossover cable.

Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.

Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.

Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)

For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.

With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

More details about how to network XP can be found at:

There continues to be a lot of misinformation about needing NetBEUI or to changing the NetBIOS setting. You can ignore both. Installing NetBEUI to solve a networking problem will just mask a some underlying and potentially important misconfiguration with TCP/IP. The default NetBIOS setting works fine so there is no need to change that either. Just don't disable it.

Things were ok until a few weeks ago, when my connection started dropping more often (but it would immediately connect by itself a few seconds later). But now, I can?t even connect to the internet. Here?s the detail:
At first, I couldn?t even connect to the router, although my laptop would pick up the signal. The router is set to have a network key (WPA or WPA II), so I played around with the connection properties and changed the network authentication to OPEN from SHARED and left data encryption to WEP. Now this time I can connect to the router, access the router?s setting and access the other computer, but can?t browse the net. Just for ease, I?ve disabled the router?s security mode now.
I?m running Windows XP Security Update 2, and I have a Intel Wireless Network card 802.11 b/g.
Did I mention HOW ANNOYING this is? I also had another linksys, the WRT54G, and that thing died on me too a while ago.
And yes, I have the latest firmware.
Thanks guys.

Sounds to me like an internet IP problem. Try unplugging the Modem from power for about 1 min then plug it back in. If that doesn't work try unplugging both the Router and the Modem for 1 min then plug in the Modem THEN the router. See if that refreshes the IP Address.

ok I finally set a password i think. I went into my router web page. went to wireless security. set up a wep passphrase and generated a key... first, is this my password when i try to connect wirelessly or not. I have tried it with every combination of username i can think of like the passphrase, the network name, admin and others but it will not let me connect. any ideas pleas help

Answer:Why wont my lynksys password work

My Linksys (Cisco) refers to it as a "Passphrase" and it is the code you enter on a computer trying to connect wirelessly. Make sure they are both using the same sort of encryption.

You're not confusing this with the router settings Password are you? That's completely different and only lets you get into the router settings, not wireless connectivity. Unless you've allowed it to be changed over a wireless connection (risky!) you'll need to connect a cable to mess with that.

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 1125ei running vista home premium SP2

I am a bit baffled. I have a lynksys router that I upgraded to WRT54GL v 4.30.15 The internet port gave up, so I bought a new one with WRT54GL v 4.30.7

The LAN on my laptop has gone on the blink, no little lights. I set up the new router, but my laptop does not see it. I tried the disc set up, but it gave me a message that it could not find my wireless adapter. Therefore it could not connect to the router. My network center reports that it cannot find any networks.

My wireless adapter is showing as on, if I plug in the old router it is found and I am able to put in and pull up my old config.

My brothers computer running windows 7 can see the router and I am able to enter and view the config. I had a Lan connection connected

My old config runs on wireless channel 6-2.437 GHZ and the new router is on channel 11-2.437GHZ

Could the problem be because I am unable to connect to the router via LAN for the initial set up? If so is there any way around it? I bought my laptop in a different country and getting a new LAN card will be a hassle as HP pavilions have no authorised agent here.

Answer:Unable to connect to new lynksys router

I would conclude that the "new" router is actually a used one because the channel is set to 11. The default for a Linksys is channel 6 which is where it should be from the factory. This causes me to wonder what other settings have been altered in the router.

I would suggest pressing and holding the reset button for about 20 seconds, then restart the router by briefly unplugging the power to it. this should restore the factory defaults. That should have the SSID set to Linksys and the channel back to 6 with no security in place. You should then be able to make whatever adjustments you want from there.

Looking for a link or a guide to help conneting my D-link camera to the internet through a new lynksys router. Is there a guide for dummies out there? Maybe a publication on the web? I can access the webcam local at home but need education as to how to gain or setup remote access through the internet.

The Lynksys Wireless Router (WRT54G2)worked fine for maybe a year but now I find myself continually unplugging (and plugging in again)the router in order for either my hard wired or wireless pc to access the internet. Can anyone tell me how to get this router to work correctly. I'm assuming it has something to do with the IP address but I'm not very savy when it comes to the technical things.

just a few things going on with my wireless-g router it was working one moment then not at all the next. i have a few qustions about what some of the lights mean ... electronically.

first the POWER light is inexplicably flashing on and off i took this to mean there was a short, open, undervoltage or overvoltage. maybe a bad capacitor or inductor. Or loosly soldered resistor so i took it apart and visually inspected it looking for scorch marks and loose components. all was in order.

then there is the DMZ light which im not to sure what it stands for other than de-militarized zone like the 49th parrallel then i realize that has nothing to do with routers and feel like an idiot. a friend explained it as a sort of safe mode for the router. what causes this light to turn on?

and finally the elusive orange light behind the cisco systems emblem on the front what in the world does that do?

oh also in cmd i tried to release and renew my ip but it failed and timed out

Answer:Solved: lynksys wireless g router questions.

Whatever your User Guide says about the meaning of the LEDs is usually more accurate than what I guess, but I'll guess anyhow.

Power light blinking means, as you said, something drastically wrong. Maybe it's time for a new router.

With respect to a router, putting a computer into the DMZ means to pass through all messages, probes and attacks to that computer as if the NAT layer didn't exist. My guess is that the DMZ LED turns on to indicate the use of DMZ.

And maybe the orange light behind the cisco systems emblem is just to make sure you're aware of the Linksys owner.

I upgraded my Lynksys router to DD-WRT. Now I am unable to login to a program I use. I was told to open ports 80, 1111, and 1935 in my router. I have checked on the net, but the instructions vary. Do I use single port forwarding, port triggering, port range or QoS? I also want to double check that I enter my ip as per ipconfig in DOS. I have a static ip from my ISP.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S I did try disabling my router firewall, but that didn't help. I want to use the LAN connection on my laptop as the program does not support wireless. I have a satelite connection

Answer:Opening Ports - lynksys router with DD-WRT upgrade

Like that.. my PC has an internal static IP of, so from the net I want to PCanywhere to it so I setup the ports accordingly.
This is a new Buffalo router with DD-WRT installed. You'll want to static your local IP, so the PC doesn't 'move' from the IP your putting in the router.

Hi I'm having difficulty connecting a second pc to my wireless connection.
Both pc's are using lynksys wireless pci cards to do so but one which i just installed today won't connect to internet.
Originally the router and 1st pc were connected to internet at a different household but i recently moved them into another house and had no problems connecting to the internet as everything was done automatically and all of the ip settings remained the same.
Now i've installed an identical pci wireless card to another pc and attempted to connect to the internet. It says it has connected to the router but that the internet cannot be found.
If i allow this pc to automatically find it's ip and stuff it comes up something that isn't even close to correct (may possibly be the old ip used to connect directly to internet before router was added). But if i input the ip details manually using the same as on the other pc but changing final ip digit by one it still cannot find the internet.
I also can't use a browser to connect to the router to adjust any of the settings or renew settings which to me suggests that the pc isn't even connected to the router?

Any heres the info from cmd ipconfig /all although it won't let me renew it on the 2nd pc which i don't know why either it just doesn't do anything and i can't type as though it's loading but it isn't.

1st pc - works

autoconfiguration enabled : yes
