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

We have configured linksys WRT54G Router at our home and two laptops(XP and Vista) are connecting fine with the router but the moment i try to connect lennovo 3000(Y500) which is having Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver(bought 15 days back) it connects fine for the first time but after a minute or so the router power start fluctuating continuosly. Again when I disable the wireless network in lennovo 3000(Y500), power of router get stabilized on its own. So the problem is whenever i try to connect the lennovo machine having Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver fluctuation of router starts and when i disable wireless connection, router works fine. I went through some forums and changed the power management properties in Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver to the highest but it did not help me. Please help me regarding this. If possible please tell me do i need to upgrade the firmware of router, if it is so tell me how to do it. Thanks in advance.

Re: compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel...

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.

How can I get the router IP of my Linksys 2.4GHz broadband router?

The Linksys G router gives you both wired and wireless connections over a broadband Internet connect to create a local area network. The Linksys router is compatible with wireless G and B devices, through the 2.4-GHz wireless band. The wireless speed is at 54 megabytes per second and you can get 100 megabytes per second with a wired connection. You have to set up the wireless configuration on the Linksys before using it on your network.

Plug the router's power cable into an electrical outlet. Attach an Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back of the router. Connect the other end into your broadband modem. Connect your computer to the Linksys G using another Ethernet cable. This Ethernet cable can go into any of the wired router ports. Open your Internet browser. Type "" in the address bar and hit "Enter." This is your router's IP address and the home of its Web configuration page. Click "Wireless." Click "Manual." Alter your SSID, also known as your network name. You can change this name to any value that you want. You can also change the wireless channel if you are in an area with many wireless connections that may interfere. Click "Save Changes." Click "Wireless Security." Choose an encryption method to encrypt your wireless transmissions. WPA or WPA2 are common security protocols you can use in wireless networks. Input a network key, also known as the network password. Click "Save Changes."

Have 2 computer's in home, on will link t network, other will not even bring up network when attemptingto get on internet via router


Usually under these circumstances, one of your computers may not have a compatible wireless network card. An example would be if your computer has a Wireless G Network Card and your router is Wireless N, you might run into problems. You can try reinstalling the drivers for your Network Card. You can also go to the Linksys website and install the installation utility to set up the connection from scratch again.

The router itself is fine, it's the wireless card in your computer that isn't finding the router.

You need to scan and view available wireless network in printer select your home network (linksys).
Once the printer is ready to go, plug it in and power it on. There should be an interactive set up screen on the printer that you can use to indicate the appropriate wireless settings. You'll want to use the same security settings on the printer that you have set on your wireless router. I recommend using the WEP settings so you are not broadcasting any of your documents or online activity the neighborhood.

Intel ProSet Wifi software can't connect to network

You need to manually add the network using your intel pro set utility. Or just switch to wzc.(wireless zero configuration). How to do it? just click start - go to run - type in services.msc - then look for wireless zero configuration on the list - right click on it then click start.
Then look for the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (that's in the bottom right hand corner of your screen). right click on it then select view available wireless network.

note: if you'll be getting the message "windows could not configure..." click change the order of preferred networks(that's in the same window where you're getting that message) then check the box that says "use windows to configure my wireless network settings" then click ok. after that go back to view available wireless networks then you should see your network now.

note: if you're using a corporate laptop where you don't have admin rights on it you need to use the intel pro

Linksys N router drops signal

Its not dropping you because of the spectrums, it works on line of sight. If you are in a basement and your router is upstairs it has to go thru a floor and the strength is weakened. Go into your router and increase the signal strength. But you have to mod your firmware.

Here is a link to update your firmware.
