the RT2500 chipset which is used by the WMP54G v4 is not supported by 
DriverLoader. Most users which tried to use this wireless card with 
DriverLoader had the same problem, the 'Error -5 transmitting packet' 
error messages in their 'dmesg'.

We will contact you back when this chipset will be officially supported 
by DriverLoader.
