I have bought linksys wag200g **** its not working properly when i use wifi on my mobile.... and device disconnected after every 1 or 2 minutes.. i have ADSL connection......


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I have 2 extenders - both are doing this: when I reset them they go through the setup and tart to communicate with the PC then they freeze up and the screen goes blank. When I go to the PC it sees them but...


This problem has affected many Linksys DMA extender owners in the US and Australia since 4 November; European users are unaffected.

Cisco (owners of Linksys) took an update server offline which the Linksys tries to communicate with; when it can't reach it, it fails to startup correctly.

The solution is to block the Linksys from accessing the Internet, at least until Cisco get the server back online -- apparently they are working on this and it should be fixed soon.

There are a lot more details in this discussion thread on The Green Button and I've also written a blog entry with more details.

The software on the computer will not complete the installation. I have Windows XP. When I hit setup I have the option to repair. It goes into an update mode and never comes out.


Ok you must do a Format of the drive first, when XP Setup, comes up, go through until it asks you if you want to use same partition etc, go through until it asks you if you want to Format, Format Full NTFS, then simply install right until the end.

If you disconnect the router , you are able to go online. Go to the Linksys web site. www.linksys.com/download and download the Firmware of the router.
You will need to select the correct model number and the version number of the router.
The model n umber and Version number will be on the back side of the router. You will see model number in small letters like WRT54G and just after that you will see V 5 or V6 or V8. this number will be the version number.
Download the file on the computer.
connect the computer and the modem to the router again and open the router set up. Upgrade the firmware.

Weak signal problem can be fixed by firmware update however, if the client computer is too far from the router, it can't be helped. What you need is a wireless range expander. What it does is give you another 100% signal or atleast stronger signal to the spot or area where you have a weak or dead signal.

you can try changing channels (1,11,9) or relocating the devices, you may also need to check obstructions or interference like cordless phone running on 2.4GHZ. because even if you change the advanced settings, (I just dont know if this router has an option to change the optimal range but you can check the advanced wireless setting under wireless tab on your router setup page) it may not work.

Won't play videos and Library updates slowly I have a DMA2100 and am having trouble setting it up properly to work with a storage device - Netgear ReadyNAS Duo. I store my videos, pictures and music on this device and have tried configuring in several different ways. I can get the DMA 2100 to work sometimes. It appears to connect properly to my HP Vista laptop but I experience some of the setup and symptoms below: 1) Router - DLINK DIR655 2) Linksys DMA2100 - connected to the network via ethernet 3) HP 8510p Laptop Vista Ultimate (SP2) - connected to the network via wireless 4) Netgear ReadyNAS Duo - connected to the network via ethernet 5) Playing videos from DMA2100 - I select the movie from my library (stored on ReadyNAS Duo) - I get the following error no matter how many times I try to play it. ?Cannot Play Video? The file type is not recognized and cannot be played. Either the correct codec blahblahblah? ? - I then go to my Vista laptop, select the same movie and let it play it at least a few seconds, stop and close it. - I go back and select the same movie on my media extender and it will suddenly work! - Its almost as if it needs to be preloaded on the Vista machine first. This seems an unnecessary step to watch movies on my extender and am trying to figure out why this is happening. 6) Getting DMA2100 to update Library is excessively long if at all. I suspect that I have an improper setup at the storage device or the Vista Laptop Any ideas???? Your help is appreciated.
