Wireless-G LinkSys Model WAP54G random Internet Access

I have 30 computers hooked up to this system. Each computer has a separate external wireless card plugged into the USB port (from Dell). We are hooked to the school Novel network system I have random access to the Internet at times which means a random 1-6 of the 30 computers are not connecting to the Internet. I've tried resetting the Internet hookup on the task bar, unplugging and replugging the wireless card and/or wireless G Access Point and sometimes this works. Sometimes resetting the computer will work. I currently have 5 computers that will not connect to the Internet (not random). Are there any other tricks I can do that don't involve our tech people so I can receive immediate access? I have 30 students in each class and we rotate every 42 minutes so, as you can see, time is of the essence. Thanks!

I did a little research, seems the Linksys wireless -G router - has some issues . It seems incompatible with many network adapters, has many rebooting bugs. I suggest picking up a netgear router, they go for about $30. I was reading the reviews, they said they have no more connection problems since replacing the Linksy.
Hope this solves many problems

I decided to try one last thing and I got it up and running! I just couldn't understand how every distro I tried the Netgear MA311 with all indicated that the card was functional, yet no connection. As a last resort, I asked a friend if I could borrow his D-Link 802.11b DI-614+ wireless router to check out my theory. I disconnected my Linksys Wireless G and hooked up the D-Link and now the NetGear cards are working!

For whatever reason I don't understand, The Linksys Wireless G likes talking to the Orinoco Gold Card, but doesn't like talking to the MA311s. Weird huh?? That post I found must have been on to something.

I feel so vidicated! It was the router not the Netgear cards!

Have you considered using fixed ip addresses when setting up the network. say the router has an ip of 192.168.0.1, start the nearest networked computer with the ip address of 192.168.0.2 and so on across the network. all machines must be a member of the same workgroup, and must have the same subnet mask. this should then prevent any of the machines trying to use the same ip address as one of the others within that workgroups network. Hope this helps and you sort it out. ****

I think the problem is that when there are a number of pc's sharing the same wireless network the bandwith has to be shared and can be with upto 255 pc's. Connecting 255 computers to a single WiFi access point, while theoretically possible, is not recommended. Performance of such a network will be very poor. Install multiple access points instead to distribute the network load. By adding more access points to the network, effectively any number of computers can be supported (though the network becomes progressively more difficult to manage). On a home network, while dozens of computers and other devices may connect to the router, the performance of a shared Internet connection will quickly degrade as more computers access the Web simultaneously.

Cannot log into ip to configure even when it is reset.


Default IP config page for WAP54G is 192.168.1.245 . What i've done in the past is hook it straight up to my computer, then in my computer in networking i click on tcp/ip properties and instead of obtain ip auto. set it yourself to 192.168.1.1 then save and then try to sign in to http://192.168.1.245 also before u do all this make sure to do a hard reset on the access point, push a needle in the hole, but actually hold it there for about 30 seconds, don't just push it and let go.

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.
