Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

We have a desktop hooked up to the router and use a laptop about a hundred feet away from the house. The new laptop worked fine for about 3 months (on either our router or the neighbor's) but now the laptop says "no service available." Any suggestions? The linksys techs are no help.

I can be that the signal is too weak or the laptop's wireless capabilities is the problem.

My acer aspire loses its signal randomly then comes back. Other laptops in the house are fine for connection. Any advice in simple terms appreciated as I don't know how to remove acer software for


Have had similar problems with two Gateways that are actually Acer--both two feet away on either side of each other: one or the other will lose connection--so not the units---if move the one not connecting closer (it is 50 feet with 3 walls between it and router) it will then pick up the wireless and work fine--I answer about 300 questions here each week so end up to avoid this in the mud/laundry room where I can depend on the signal and also have a smoke if I want.

May want to as a test move it closer to the router and see if same issue or not.

I want to buy a wireless network adapter USB. I do not have internet home, but there is a public connection that is a couple hundred feet away from my house that is public because it is a cafe. Can anyone...


A couple of hundred feet away may be too far for a good signal receiption.
You can increase your signal with an aerial.
You may need to go into the cafe or park yourself nexr door to the cafe.
Use Google to see what is available on the Internet.
Here are a few WEB sites for you to look at.

Do I need a 2nd modem to hook my ps3 up to the internet? My ps3 is no where near my computer...how can I get it hooked up to the internet?


I would use a wireless router. Then you can use ps3 or laptop in the house. Or run ethernet from main router/modem to the ps3. You can buy the ethernet cables at amazon.com and newegg.com and they can go a few hundred feet.

Wireless connection problems


Its hard to diagnose cause the process starts long before your current setup..ie, programming your router. So I have attached a website from Microsoft that walks you thru the steps to set up your wireless home network so you can backtrack...good luck and let me know if you have any problems. Pls rate this solution.

Wifi range problem on Acer Aspire 5100 notebook


Move the router away from the computer, like on the top shelf of the desk, and away from any cordless phones and other devices.
Try moving the antenna as well, choose a diffrent channel like 11 instead of default 6.
It sounds like you are getting some stron RF interference from one of the devices near the router.
I hope this helps resolve your issue.
Good Luck.

No connection


looks like a common issue on routers and cable modem, well a little common.

the power comming fromt he modem (information pass) is too much for the internet port on the router to handle that it quits if the surge from the modem comes.

here is what you do:

get a longer ethernet cable to connect your modem and the router, may 10-15 feet ethernet cable, put it in a coil and tie a knot in the middle, just look at the picture below.

once this is done, you may access the router's page again and make sure that the MAC clone feature is enabled and perform a power cycle. power down the modem and the router, power up the modem first, wait for around a minute or until the ONLINE light is steady and then turn the router on. after that try your connection on the router.
