WRT54GS - freq signal loss!

Hi I am currently using a linksys WRT54GS 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!
Jen

I had the same exact problem with my router. If updating your firmware and resseting the router does not work then your router is defective. Linksys replaced mine!

Did you check online to see if there is a new version of the firmware available? That may help with things like losing configs. I've seen cases where doing the update even improves the signal.

Also, if the signal to your computer is weak to begin with, it won't take much to lose it. Even standing between the computer and the router can actually interrupt your signal. If this is the case, you may want to move your router closer to where you are using your computer or maybe putting it were there are less walls or other things between your computer and the router.

See if you can get a friend to come over with his laptop and see how his does, both near and far away from your router. It might just be some network setting or security software on your computer that causing you to lose your connection.

Sounds like you need to download a firmware update for your router, 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

Hello
Try updating the firmware on the router.You need to log into the router using 192.168.1.0

Username =admin
password = admin or the word password.

Once in the routers home page check for updates and download and install.Also be sure any firewalls are not blocking the signal.
While your in the router set up a personal wep key for your wireless security.
There is a possibility your lossing signal to outside intruder.

How do i connect and get signal?


This is a common problem with Linksys wireless routers and primarily the WRT54G and WRT54GS. For some odd reason they all of a sudden go stupid and forgetful.

The easiest method to revive these routers is to go to the Linksys web site and get the automatic configuration download for your specific model of wireless router.

Hope this helps you

Cant find my linksys


If you are willing to lose your current settings there is a small pinhole in the back of the lynksys that will allow you to set it back to default settings.

You can try to reconnect to the default addess...

Note you can also do a low end physical test to see if it responds to a ping.

ping 129.168.0.1 e.g.
