I get a strong signal but win XP says no to poor connectivity. its worked fine for 3 years - linksys WAP54G


If this worked fine for three years, something physical in your environment has changed. First put whatever was moved back where it was. Then check the antenna connection(s) both on your router and inside your computer for corrosion and fit. Also make sure your wireless adapter card is securely mounted inside the computer. Then you should check your wireless adapter settings to make sure someone has not "helped" you.
Right click on my network places, select (Click) properties, and when the next window opens right click on the wireless adapter icon and select (click) properties. Check the adapter settings by clicking on the configure option next to the connect using xxxxx to make sure you are set for the proper 802.11 g mode of operation etc. When you click OK your wireless adapter will be re-configured for any changes made. You should make changes with care., especially since everything used to work. You should repeat the My Network Places etc. and then choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and check these settings as well. The only setting in this area that may cause a connectivity problem is IF a QoS Packet Scheduler service is listed in the window. However, QoS is usually a GOOD thing to have installed. Once again, any changes you make will be changed in Windows when you click OK. I would re-boot the computer to let Windows accept any changes you make.

SETTING WIRELESS


1. Shut off the power to your cable or dsl modem for about 30 minutes.

2. Connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the Internet port on the router.

3. After 30 minute power on ONLY the modem NOT the router

4. Wait about 60 seconds and power on the router

Try it now.

Wireless connection will not work


The computer is viewing the signal, but its not connected yet. For that you have to enter a "key" in hexadecimal format. In other words you have to configure the security of the wireless connection on the router, then you have to enter the "key"that the router gives you. To enter the administrative configuration of the router, connect with the cable the computer and in the internet browser, enter 192.168.0.1 or search for gateway IP address of the computer. There you configure Wireless Settings. Always use encryption for security reasons. WEP encryption will be good.

Linksys WAP54g v3.1.Can't connect more than 1 computer wirelessly


That is normal for you not to be able to get online at the same time, you are using a Wireless access point, you access point does not have a dhcp server to share the internet on both laptops. What you should have put in there is a wireless router, for Linksys the model of a wireless router will be WRT54G or any model as long as it's a router.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
