Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

1 Answer

Linksys N router drops signal

I have two lap tops with wireless cards. One has an a/b/g card, (Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection). The second has an N card (Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN).

Both computers will lose connectivity showing "limited connection" from time to time. I'd like to tell my Linksys WRT150N router to ONLY allow access at the "G" speed and see if that fixes the problem. I think I'm getting dropped becasue the access point drops me becasue it is monitoring a/b/g/n spectrums and it's too much. I did this at work and it seemed to work there.

Any ideas?

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.

If you are using an intel wireless card (such as the default wirelesscard coming with Lenovo laptops) you can download an "Intel WirelessConnection Utility" from the following intel download centre atfollowing location. Select appropriate operating system and downloadtype as "Software Applications" to download the connection utility. Install it.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Wireless+Networking&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+WiFi+Products&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+PRO%2fWireless+3945ABG+Network+Connection&ProdId=2259&LineId=1784&FamilyId=1783

This tool from intel detects the available wifi networks and collectsthe authentication details and automatically connects when the networkdisconnects due to signal dropping.

You can think of changing the desktop/laptop network to "private"instead of "public" to avoid frequent signal dropping. Try to work froma place which is close to the router so tat the wifi signal is strong.

My laptop suddenly cannot connect to the router.


It comes down to a few things with routers and wireless connections:
1. If you have been dropping the signal over the past few weeks try doing a test on the wireless network connection via the diagnostic tool within the specific wireless connection.
2. You may have gotten a bad update to the wireless card. Try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.
3. Try deleting the wireless connection for your router and then make 'a new' wireless connection.

Wireless connection


not necessarily..the signal will be in proportion to the distance and quality of your wireless card inside your computer.

If it is the Linksys Wireless G WRT54G, then go to this link there is simple instructions on how to setup wireless network.

But, first verify you do have a Wireless card in your laptop. by, hitting Start, Run, then type in CMD in the run box.

When the MSdos(Black window) opens type in IPCONFIG/ALL

this should show all the Network adapters on your machine including your Ethernet and any wireless if avail.

It is usually listed below your LAN/Ethernet settings. It may say something like Intel Pro/100 or 1000 Mobile connection under description. If you dont see a wireless adapter. then go out and buy a Wireless card or a USB wi-fi dongle.

Dropping Connection


This link indicates there may be an issue with hiding the SSID in the wireless router. A security item employed by some users. IF this is the case consider broadcasting the SSID and employing WEP or WPA encryption in the wireless configuration for both the router and the adapter cards to secure the wireless connections..

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.
