Constant loss of wireless signal

Hi I am currently using a linksys WET54GS router and have problems with losing the signal all the time. I just switch everything off and on again but have to go to the admin set up page everytime and rest everything which is very frustrating. I am thinking of buying a new router, but wanted to check that i've set it up ok. Maybe there is something i need to do that i'm not aware of. Also i have no WPA or WEP set up as i have no idea how to do this, do i need to contact my service provider for password or do i do this myself? Thanks in advance for your help!

You router may be going bad. These routers are pretty plug and play so there is minimal setup to get you started.
I went through a few cheap routers myself before I found a reliable one. It cost me a bit more but was well worth it.
You can try to default the router to factory settings and also look at downloading a firmware upgrade from the Linksys website. This is covered in the documentation that was supplied withthe router. Sometimes the help files are also built into the router.

"Also i have no WPA or WEP set up as i have no idea how to do this, do i need to contact my service provider for password or do i do this myself?"

You can set it up yourself via the router. Basically you choose which one your're going to use and setup an encrypted password. Then add this password to the connection profile for your router when it ask for it upon connection.

Sounds like you need to download a firmware update for your router, go to http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/wet54gs5_v492,0.zip

and download the firmware to somewhere like your desktop, then browse to 192.168.1.1 and loginto your router and look for the update firmware link, browse to your downloaded file and update your firmaware, make sure you dont cut the router off or unplug it while it is updating.

Hope this helps,
David

If you are saying like 5 devices? Wonder if your internet provider ia allowing that? Sometimes they do have a limit and if you go over that it will lock up or fail...lose signal. Not saying you are doing something bad but maybe you do have a limit of devices allowed. If this is the problem leave one device off or switch off if not needed.

I have a Linksys router since 7/09 but keep losing


LOSING WIRELESS CONNECTION ?
Make sure the latest wireless card driver is installed in the computer.
Locate the wireless router higher and away from concrete and brick walls, foil insulated walls.
Locate the wireless router away from cordless phones and microwave ovens these can cause interference.
You could be getting interference from other wireless access points or wireless routers in your area. Check the wireless broadcast channels in your area, and select one that is unused or one that has the weakest signal strength.

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.

Do you have cable TV also? If so, how many TVs are hooked up. Sounds like you have signal loss. I had the same problem. Also, if you have another coax cable lying around, try changing it out (from the wall to the cable modem, cables can be a big issue with this).

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?
