Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have Linksys WRT54GS wireless and it has worked fine,via both LAN port and secured wireless.
Two lapotops were connecting regularly to wireless SSID until last night.
This morning neither can connect wirelessly (4 networks are 'discovered' but connection to mine fails. as does connection to another listed but unsecured network - just as a test!).
connection via LAN cable is still fine (hence this thread).
I have tried repair connection, rebooting laptops, power down and back up for router (end even broadband modem, in desperation).
nothing seems to help. Yet I can still 'see' my SSID so hard to understand what has sudddenly broken.
Have ypou any suggestions, please?
When I shut my laptop down and turn it back on I do not have the internet. I have to go and reboot the router and most of the time my laptop will come back on and other times I have to keep forcing it to connect and it finally will. Just started having this problem about a month ago.

I've been looking at wireless problems for someone else, so here are a couple more possibilities.
1) could a new piece of equipment be interfering with the signal, eg a dect phone nearby, even a microwave - or even something next door? Does moving the router help at all?
2) does changing the router channel help? Eg, if you are picking up other networks, maybe it is getting busy on the channel you are using. :)
Just ideas - as obviously I don't know your exact situation - but worth looking at.

Log on to the router, go to your wireless setup page. Disable wireless, reboot it and when it comes back up, enable wireless once more with a different pre-shared key. You'll need obviously to enter this new key into your laptops. Let me know if this solves the problem.
