I have a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter and a Cisco/Linksys WRT54GS Router. The signal is extremely poor even though the router is only 10 feet away. It does not appear to be an interference issue.


Hi,
You can update the Linksys Firmware to a newer version if is available, please check the Linksys support site
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54GS
Another chance is to change the Wireless Channel maybe 11, to avoid any intereference with wireless phones.
Regards,

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.

Connecting to a Wireless Network with SSID Broadcast Disabled when using Windows Vista & Windows 7 Article ID: 5451
Disabling SSID broadcast is another way to secure your wireless network. This will ensure that your SSID will not be detected whenever someone does a scan. When connecting to a wireless network with SSID broadcast disabled, you will have to create a profile.

Creating a Profile

NOTE: Disabling SSID broadcast is another way to secure your wireless network. This will ensure that your SSID will not be detected whenever someone does a scan. When connecting to a wireless network with SSID broadcast disabled you have to create a profile.
Step 1:
Right-click this icon kb_5451-001_en.png at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, then select Network and Sharing Center.

NOTE: If you are using Windows 7, just click once on this icon kb_5451-003_en.png at the bottom-right of the screen then select Open Network and Sharing Center.

On the Network and Sharing Center window, click Manage wireless networks.

Step 3:
Click Add. NOTE: You have to remove your preferred network before before you proceed to click Add a new connection. If you see your network has changed from Automatic to Manual, you will face difficulties to connect your computer on the network because the SSID is not broadcasting into the available network connection. After removing your preferred network and adding it back, the network will turn to Automatic and you will be able to connect automatically into your network. Make sure to look at network properties/Connection and check "Connect when this network is in range".

My broadcom 802.11g network adapter disables every time I try to connect it to my linksys wireless router.


Check the various wireless access points near you, if any of them are broadcasting on the same channel as your wireless router, then change it to a channel that is unused.
Also check the signal strength of your wireless router, if it is less than say 60% move your laptop or your wireless router away from walls (especially concrete walls and metal/foil walls) and locate it higher to improve radio reception.

Compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver


from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
