Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

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.

Can anyone help me?!?!?!

    I will certainly try that, however the icon in the task tray says I have "excellent" signal strength.
    As for interference - I have nothing in area, other than it's sitting on top of my wireless printer. But it's been working fine until just the other day. So I doubt it'd be the printer.

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

    One more thing to add
    Make sure ur system does not have other utilities or softwares to connect to wireless .
    IF u have more than one software in ur system to connect to wireless then whenever u restart ur system the softwares will try to connect to wireless at the same time and in trying to do that they could confilct with each other and ur wireless might drop out.
    Wireless zero configuration is a utility provided by windows to connect to wireless in WIN XP
    But if u have WIN VISTA then it would be WLAN AUTO CONFIG
    These are default utilities provided in each and every system
    MAke sure u are trying to connect with these only
    IF u have another software to connect to wireless and want to disable it permanenlty so that it can connect with windows utility
    click start
    click run
    type msconfig
    System configuration window will come up
    Goto startup
    IT will give u a list of softwares
    Find the particular sofware and disable it and it would be disables
    Click on apply and OK

    IF U want to disable WINDOWS utililty
    Goto start
    Click run
    type services.msc
    click ok
    services local windows comes up
    scroll down till the bottom
    u find wireless zero configuration ( for WIN XP)
    or WLAN auto config ( for WIN VISTA )
    right click on it
    goto properties
    make suree that that start up type is set to disabled ( if u want toi disable is permanently ) or automatic ( if u want to enable it permenently)

2006 Chev Cobalt won't lights, no sounds nothing. When tried to get the key out it won't go past the ACC position? Any ideas on the problem?

Is the battery dead? Check your battery condition and connections. Check your starter fuse from there. Check the connection to the starter then progress to the ignition side of the concern

Nikon d40x suddenly stopped working- won't turn on- was working fine and when I connected it to laptop to download, it turned on , then suddenly went blank.

Do you get the 'push shutter button again' or 'turn off and on again ' message? If so the motor in the SQ unit that charges the shutter and moves the mirror up and down has failed. A very very common problem. The part is on constant back order at Nikon, and good luck getting it anyway as Nikon is going to stop selling parts to anyone in just a few weeks.

Manual update fails, no internet connection

I have had similar problems after trying to activate and update on my customers computers. I know it is Trend Micros servers that are down for maintenance. Wait a day or two and then try again and it will work. Your computer is protected during this time even though it is not activated/updated.

Connections fails and I have to constantly reboot the router

We have satellite Internet. They say everything is OK, but every few days I have to unplug my modem from the satellite, reboot, and everything is OK again. So I put a timer on mine, and it reboots every morning about 3.

Any help??

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Power connection, but no Data (Mac)

Take a look at this photo. There are two different firewire connections on it. If your Mac has the one on the left, it is the four pin and needs a power source to run it. If it is the one on the right side, you have a six pin and should have power to run it.
