Re: Connecting WRT54G to Vista

If the software wasn't made to be installed on Vista then you need to access the Web interface of the router .. first connect the router to the PC using Ethernet cable then open internet explorer and type .. when asked for username and password, type Admin for each ... now you can configure the settings manually.

I've been using Sony Adapter on Sony Bravia TV to streamline movies from Neflix. Recently, I've been getting either "Network error" of "Content error" after 10 - 20 min of watching or...

Possible Solutions:

It might be distance-related issue. Try to move your router closer to Sony Bravia TV. If you experience the same problem, try upgrading the firmware of it. See the instruction How to Upgrade Router Firmware.

D-Link 615 stopped connecting with wireless

If your laptop is not detecting the wireless router, can you try to get the laptop closer to the router ? If you have done that already, I would suggest you to try and power cycle the router once. If that doesnt work either, try to reset the router. Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit

Firmware Upgrade For Vista

That update is not for Vista but for your router, you need to log in to it as admin and find the firmware update option and give the bin file to it.
And I storngly suggest to not to try this via wireless connection, you can easily ruin your router that way, use rj45 ethernet cable during the update.

And for the obvious question about how to log in to it's admin menu easiest way to have a look in to it's documentation and there you should find a step by step guide with possibly some pictures.

Connecting WUSB100 to Wireless G WRT54G

laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.

The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.

Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.

Wireless connection to internet

I just got it all working [new notebook running Vista], connecting to the net via the telkom 5102G - with a PC running XP connecting via LAN.

The 5102G comes ready configured with a network key / code [stuck on the back] so use that to connect to the router - once you've connected it'll come up with limited connectivity.

I then ran the firmware upgrade from
To do this, download and unpack the thing. In your browser, go to [for the router config] and click on firmware and follow the instructions.

Once this is done - disconnect and reconnect the vista laptop connection. Open your browser and simply click on tools and uncheck the tickbox alongside "work offline".

I know that sounds ridiculous but that's exactly what I did and I'm surfing fine.

Now... just need to share files and printer and we're 100%.

Hope that helps.
