Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Greetings. We have a Linksys WRT54G v1.1 router set up on our main floor office Dell PC. For the last month or so we have had problems with our upstairs office computer being able to get a signal from the router on the main floor.
Have tried unplugging the router/rebooting the PC's, etc., no luck.
The toolbar wifi messages alternate about every 2 seconds between "connected at 54 bps" and "not connected".
My iPhone gets the wifi signal clearly throughout the house, just the upstairs PC seems to be having problems of late.
Would upgrading the firmware or purchasing a Range Expander help?
Thanks so much!!
I would get a Range Expander... it sounds like you are having problems recieving a constant signal. When you do get the range expander plug the Range Expander halfway between you upstairs computers and your downstairs where your router is at. I hope this helps!!

If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors'), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router's channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.
