Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

2 Answers

Loss of Connectivity

Just bought a new Sony Vaio Laptop and set up a wireless network at home. The WRT54G is hard wired to a an old desktop while the laptop is connected wireless. The laptop loses connection to the router especially after it is taken out of range (out of the house), the router does not recognize it. We have to re-cycle the router to get the signal strength back up. The laptop then looks like is trying to set up a second connection (can see a 2nd identically named laptop)
Any ideas? Thanks

    The Vaio has Vista Home loaded. I will check if the wireless icon is on the system tray. Will also double check the router admin page. Thanks

    If you are using XP on the Vaio see if this fixes the situation
    Right Click on the XP Wireless Icon in the System Tray and
    click on Repair

    If this fails it is your router if it succeeds it is most likely your computer

    If it is your router goto the router admin page and change client
    lease time to a much smaller number

Unless it was installed by the big box retailer when they "optimized" the laptop. I did not install any additional Linksys software on the laptop. Let me double check to see how it is connecting, if I am not mistaken it is using Windows built in wireless management. (it also looks like there was some preloaded Sony software to allow it to be used in a wireless environment) I am wondering if both are trying to connect at the same time?

Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?

I have a home network using a desktop Dell 3000 series computer and want to add a Sony Vaio laptop. My network works ok but I cannot share my Canon i560 printer. Any solutions?


Sony Vaio is operating on Windows 7 and Canon does not supply drivers for my i560 Canon printer. I was able to download a suitable driver from another source. I have since bought a new Epson printer/scanner at a good discount which works well on the Vaio laptop.

PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics

My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.

Network has suddenly dissapeered


This is just a problem with the wireless settings of the router, you can try first to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds while power is ON and then after that you should be able to find the default wireless name of the router which is linksys, after you reset the router just need to reconfigure it back...

Cannot connect new laptop to internet


Do you have a router set up? If not two things you can do:

1) Buy and setup wireless router wired with desktop and wireless with laptop.

OR

2) Remove network cable from back of Desktop and plug into laptop each time you want to use Internet. Cheaper option but more hassle to switch back and forth.

Wireless network connection


you may need to run the network wizard, as your sony may not be set up as using a gateway type connection and may be instructing other pcs to connect via itself and not on the network.
