Your signal can be affected by a lot of things from cordless phones to microwaves also the placement of your router is key, if its next to a cordless phone then chances are your going to have some interferance also the amount of space between you and the router try moving the router to a nice high location or a more central location in your home if you have 3 floors then the middle floor will work best. try those things out and see if it helps

My WRT54G2V1 is now producing a poor or weak signal to the 20nd computer. I have reset it and poeered it down a couple times


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

check to see if your wireless connection is on on your laptop and set to work with your router - check to see if your laptop's wireless signal is b/g/n - if it's only an "n" - and your router is a b/g - then you will need to purchase an "n" class router...
normally, routers do not "just work without issues" when you bring it home and plug it in - it should have come with a setup disk or instruction guide - have you completed the steps to connect?

I got a new router (Netgear W..8.)for my home


try puuting the wireless access point on the middle and atleast 5 ft of the ground this will increase your signal slightly also make sure that there is no cordless phone especially the base near the wireless access point.

I cannot get my lap top to connect to my wireless router


Start logically eliminating possible causes. Start with the router (is it transmitting, weak signal, encrypted signal). Next move to the laptop (wireless device on, does the operating system see the device and shows its working) Once youve eliminated both of these, look at the laptop's operating system itself (viral infection, trojan, internet security program lockdown, misconfigured firewall).
