Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Weak connections.

About a week ago there was a thunder and lighting storm in out area.The internet connection was disrupted. I called my provider the next and everything seemed fine on their end. I have a cable modum. But every since I have had trouble with my router. Sometimes I don't get a connection or I have a very weak connection. Could my router become damaged during a storm. I did a live chat with someone with Linksys. And we did a power down and a clone mac. And I have reset the button and powered down several times. Do I need to buy a new one or try to fix this one. Please help I am stressed.

Re: Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Weak connections.

Try checking to see if you can access the configuration page of your router.
Does that work  (yes : your little blue box should be ok / No: do a troubleshooting session).

Normally if a router has sufferered damage a part of it won't work at all... Also do bear in mind that lightning can also go through phone lines.. it might be your ADSL modem....

First steps (forgive me if you are already doing this). Hook up the laptop with cat5 network cable to port on router to verify you have internet connectvity. Verify router settings that DHCP is on or off. It should be on unless u are using static IP's on network. Go back wireless and see if you can connect. IF yo do, open a DOS prompt and use ping command (c:>ping 192.168.x.x ) where x.x are the ip setting of router. In most cases the router IP will be set to Check the most basic settings. Sometimes it is a simple thing that is throwing everything off. Also consider if your laptop is at the very edge of your signal area. Try moving laptop right next to router.

Hope this helps.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter

your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.

Connection drop-outs

Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck
