You bought a router for your printer? Or you have other computers you need to connect to the internet.

If you have more than one computer than you hookup (or connect wirelessly) your computers and then network yor printer so that document can be printed from any machine on your network. If this is not what you are looking for feel free to fill me in on more infomation.

Low connection to Internet


You can change channels, you can't increase frequency. The Linksys WRT54g is a 2.4ghz Frequency wireless device. You can purchase a 2.4-5.0ghz Frequency Dual-Band device. If you have Devices with Wireless N Adapters you will benefit, theoretically, from a N wireless access point increasing speed. Do a little research, there's more to it than replacing a Wireless device. That's only one piece of the puzzle.

My router isnt sending signal to my printer


The router doesn't send signals to a printer. The Linksys transmits a radio signal recieved by the wireless adapters on other devices, if your printer has wireless compatibility it must be setup on the printer, in the wireless settings. I don't think it's a Linksys issue. It a computer software issue. If you post the Computer Make, Model, and your OS, the Printer Make, mode,l I will try to help you. Is this the first time using the Printer?

Top Causes of Intermittent Wireless Connection to a Linksys Router

There are three key reasons that may be cited why the wireless connection between your Linksys router and your computer is intermittent or is experiencing timeouts.
i. You have a low signal quality received from your wireless router.
ii. You are experiencing signal interference from other wireless devices.
iii. Your router's firmware needs to be upgraded.
You have a low signal quality received from your Linksys wireless router.
The location of your wireless router with respect to your computer greatly influences your connection to the wireless network. For a better signal quality, it is ideal that the wireless router is placed in a central spot of your house or on a location free from any obstruction blocking its range.
To determine the signal quality received from your wireless router, you must connect to the wireless network first.
NOTE: For instructions on how to connect wirelessly to your Linksys router, click here. If you're using a Mac computer, click here.
Once connected, check the signal strength received by your wireless adapter or Airport for Mac users. The recommended signal strength should be closest to full bars to have the best connection possible.
You are experiencing signal interference from other wireless devices.
The frequency used by your router's wireless network may be 2.4 GHz, 5GHz or both. Some devices may also be using the same frequency and this causes the interference to the wireless network of your Linksys router. The most common examples are cordless phones, microwave ovens and baby monitors. Another possibility of frequency interference is that there may be other wireless networks in the area. Your frequencies may be conflicting with each other.
To solve this, turn off the device that is possibly causing the interference or relocate your router away from it. Another solution is to change the current wireless network channel which is set in your router's settings. For instructions on how to do this, click here.
Your router's firmware needs to be upgraded.
If you are having unstable connection and have confirmed that the previous causes are irrelevant, then you may have to upgrade your Linksys router's firmware. For instructions on how to do this, click here.



Encountering Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router

Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
  • 2.4 GHz interference: Your router may be operating on the same frequency as your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors'), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router's channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.

    Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.

  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
  • Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
    Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. We suggest changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
    1)To change the router's SSID or the wireless network's name, click here.
    2)To change the router's channel, click here.
    3)To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
    NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, it could mean that your firmware is corrupted. For instructions to reload or upgrade firmware, click here.

Just purchase a Linksys WRT150-N Wireless Router. I can't connect to the internet using the connections suggested


First, check if the devices that you're trying to connect this router supports wireless encryption protocol-N (802.11N). If the devices do support then enable WLAN-N standard by following the manufacturers recommendations.

Then try connecting.

Hi I have a wireless router linksys wrt100 and I have 2 laptops (notebooks) and a cpu I also have 3 printers (1 wireless and 2 usb cable printers). I would like to make all wireless is is possible. PS. My...


Option1: Install both USB printers on the desktop computer, and then share them. Your laptops will be able to connect to them, but only when the desktop is turned on.

Option2: Buy a wireless print server, (Available from D-Link, LInksys, HP, etc) and use that to connect your USB printers wirelessly.

If you also want to wirelessly connect the desktop to your network, purchase either a USB, or PCI Wireless NIC for it.
