Wireless WRT54G I have a wireless card in my lap top that recently is unable to get or hold a signal. Somtimes it will indicate that the signal is strong but will not be able to log on. If I try to check for availible networks I get a message that there are no wirerless networks in range. The laptop is within 20 feet of the router. This system was working two days ago. I also have another computer that is configured to the router and I am getting the same problem

Try upgrading the routers firmware. The instructions are available on the manufacturers website and I believe you can do it through the web interface built into the router. It sounds like the radio section of the router may have failed.

Considering there are problems on the two computers it shouldn't be the wireless system. It may be the router or what's feeding the router. Cabling is always suspect. Whatever is feeding the router may need to be reset by a power of and on cycle. So I would unplug the router and equipment feeding the router and turn off the computers and wait 30 seconds and start with the device feeding the router, the router and then the computer directly wired to the router. If there is a problem still call your internet service provider.

I have two computers receiving wireless internet via my Linksys WRT54G router. I recently purchased an Acer Aspire one (mini computer) Can hook up to wireless at my daughters and at other places, but...


Hi,

For you to resolve this problem, you'll need to reset the router. Press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds, and when you are prompted for the user name and password just input "admin" in both fields.

Try connecting your computer to the router after this process.

Good Luck.

My lap top wireless signal varies from weak to good when accessing home router when connecting at home.


your signal can be affected by a lot of things from cordless phones to microwaves also the placement of your router is key, if its next to a cordless phone then chances are your going to have some interferance also the amount of space between you and the router try moving the router to a nice high location or a more central location in your home if you have 3 floors then the middle floor will work best. try those things out and see if it helps

the default login for linksys is user name: (leave blank) ,password: admin; if that doesn't solve your problem unplug all the cords and hold the reset button on the back of the unit for 30 seconds then gradually reintroduce it to your network.

Lost connection internet on lap top. Linksys


Is your laptop wireless signal turned ON? Sometimes it will turn itself off for one reason or another. Also check in the Device Manager to ensure it is enabled and has the correct driver(s). Check with the manufacturer of the laptop to see if they have any solutions available for you to try.
