My connection constantly fails... and then again, and again...
I have no idea what's going on. For the past few days my computer won't connect to my wireless. I doubt it's my system - maybe it's the router or my cable modem?
I lose the connection, then I have to refresh the wireless connections then reconnect (or sometimes repair the connection and usually both!). It lasts about 5 minutes and is INCREDIBLY slow. Like being on dial-up again, but worse. I have to do everything all over again. Resetting the router doesn't seem to help. I've also reset the modem... I just don't get it.

Try to change the channels on the router manager page and see whether the signal strength increases or not Make sure there are no electrical apllainces kept near to the router like micowave oven , music system speakers or any halogen lam which could create any kind of electrical interference with the router due to which the wireless signals are dropping out

Are you trying to run the CD to setup your router? You can setup your router manually also. Connect the computer to the router and modem to the router. Change the Internet connection settings on the router according to your Internet service provider. Read Linksys router setup
Your cable modem has a ip address of 192.168.1.1 and your router probably has the same ip address. Hook your computer up to the router and change the ip address to 192.168.9.1. On your router change the router mode to static ip address mode. Then you will need to know your username and password from you cable company, and the Domain Number. Then connect the cable back to the wan port from the modem and the other end to the wan port of the router. Connect the computer to the first lan port on the router and type 192.168.9.1 go to the status page and tell it to connect.
Your cable company is giving you one ip addres and have to pay for another for more than one computer. What are you doing is using the router to receive the first ip address and distrubting out to the other computers.
Router radios go bad, that's just a fact of life.
Reset the unit as described in your user manual, and reconfigure. If it still fails to connect, or connects only for a few hours or a day before failing, replace the router.
i belive i know what is happening
what is happeing is that ur router is giving you the same IP address to both your computers this happens alot when you have a network,
what you would have to do is call the manufature of that device the one giving the wireless signal then tell them that your the router is giving the same ip´s to both PC´s or laptops and they would force the ip´s depending on the settings that you would be using at this time
try this it worked for me. If you use Chrome go to tools, options, under the hood and un-check Predict network actions to improve page load performance, I have no idea why this worked I just know that I have not lost my service since I did this. I stumble around a lot and was always getting the message no broadband service or something of that nature. One time chrome suggested that I try this (no idea why chrome suggested this) so I unchecked the box and now I no longer have the problem of loosing my connection. I was loosing my connection a lot 10-20 times an hour. Good Luck
I just upgraded from firmware version 1.01.14 to 1.01.22 and I have the same problem, the router just keeps resetting itself. I think the solution is to go back to the old firmware, but I haven't been able to find a copy yet, Once I find firmware version 1.01.14 for the WRT54GX2 router. I will let you know if this is the solution... :) WRT54GX2
