Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Setting for mixed b/g is really only g.

I have a wifi phone that is only b and would like to be able to use it with my WCG-200 while keeping my other wireless computers logged in at g speeds. Are there any firmware upgrades to fix this software bug? Or is there a way to tweak something else?

    Thanks for looking at this. What I may not have adequately described is that the mixed ab&g setting seems to be only A&G not B, ie the setting on the webtool does not correctly set the router to mixed. The b wifi phone can not access the router while the it is set to mixed and only works if it is set to b. If I set it to b it works, but then all of my computers are on b and slower. I read about this bug somewhere, but was hoping for a solution. Otherwise... I'll get a new router.

I do not see a firmware upgrade available on Linksys page, but according to the manual, on the Wireless tab of the router interface it says the default setting is set to mixed. The only thing you can do I guess is log in and check the settings.

Manual is here for reference

I can see my wifi ext on my iphone but it asks me for a password?

As you did setup your WiFi router, you had to enter what security you wanted to use (WPA and so on) then you have to give an password to be connected. I hope you did write that one down. If you can't find it, log in to your router and look what password you did give in. If you really can't find anything, Look for the manual, how to reset the router and passwords, and start setting up your router. Be aware all phones, PC and tablets who can connect now, have to be paired again, as soon as you change the security settings.

Wireless 54mbps 11g 3com wireless disconnects randomly.

I woudl recomend doing a site survery of you house/office by:


Then turn it on and walk around to all rooms to get a good idea of the other wifi interference in the area.

Now go into the router config and under wifi setting find channel.
Now based on you site survey pick a channel that is used little or empty keeping in mind the overlap as seen in the graph. 1 or 11 general work well because most users keep it on default 6.

In addition you need to check to see if the router is over heating. IT needs relatively good air flow to work correctly also do not stack another device below or above it because the extra heat will become a issues. If it has been overheated before that may be the issue and it may be permanently damaged.

Also keep in mind wifi will not go though steel or water very well so that may be contributing. In additon 2.4ghz wireless phones and microwaves cause problems. Changing the phone out with a 5.8ghz one will help and moving the router away from microwave will also help.

I currently have a belkin wireless g MIMO and want to replace with N1 vision. Will all the set up be lost (password) when I switch to N1 vision. Can I just plug the new one and ready to go? Thanks

Yes, all the setting and password, WEP encryption password, etc WILL BE LOST. Well they are not actually lost, they remain on the old router until you delete them or reset the router to the factory default.
I think what you are really looking for is will the setting and passwords transfer automatically(NO)
So you need to write down the old setting and password if you want to keep them and put them into the new router during set-up.
Unless you are going to personally keep the old router, for security, reset it to clear out the passwords.The reset procedures is the same for both routers
Just in case you do not have the new owners manual here is the direct link to Belkins.

My wireless is not working but the lan plugged in does, it was working fine then nothing,tried resetting in the back , left it unplugged all night, cant pull up the settings says error loading page

You don't have a cordless phone being used nearby do you. Many of them transmit on the same frequency as a wifi router and will kick the wifi off every time.

Internet connection speed of the Encore ENHWI-G2

if you're router is in the B+G setting, try setting it to the B setting, this is because the wireless adapter in the i-phone/i-touch uses only the B setting, sucks for most part.. but that got my i-phone working like a charm.. hope this helps

How do i hook a mac to a PC using the D-Link? I need help ASAP!

Hi, basically it really doesn't matter what sort of PC ya using... when ya connect up to the WiFi Router, the PC "Detects the SSID" (An SSID is just a unique name say.. My_WiFi) of said Router, and then with the "Remote" Computer, you simply look for, and then connect to, that network. The DHCP address server in the Router will automatically assign the "Remote" PC a WiFi address.. and from then on it doesn't really matter what any other Operating Systems the PC's are using as you are not actually connecting to them, per se, but rather conecting thru the WiFi Router to the internet. To access other PC's Windows "Files & Data" from a "Mac" & vice versa, is a slightly different matter.. but still easy to set up. The links below will be of assistance to you in setting it all up. - 26k The best way to connect up a Modem & separate WiFi Router... is: Connect Modem to Router, Router to A "Main" PC, via Ethernet cable. (Router set to DCHP Server & assign an SSID) All Other PC's connect to the "WiFi Router". After setting up an "Unsecured Network" & when & after, it is all working. THEN one can set up WEP security keys for the WiFi network.
