Lost wireless signal - Asante FR 1104-G to iBook G4

My router has suddenly stopped sending a wireless signal to my laptop.  I have tried unplugging it and then plugging it back in, but nothing works.  The green wireless light is on, although I had to power it up a couple of times to get it on.  It has worked fine for over 2 years.

My Asante FR1004 is not consistent in the wireless signal. When the laptop is plugged directly into the wired ethernet ports the problem does not seem to exist. I use a Macintosh PowerBook Pro and have had...

Most of the problems we see with wireless access points and routers, are other devices nearby on the same wireless channel.
Log into the FR1004 and try changing the channel to another one a few numbers apart. i.e. if it's set to 6 then try 11 or 1. Depending on your country, you may be restricted to certain channels.
Also check if you have a DECT phone station near, and move it away if possible.

Mac ibook g4 connect to an existing wireless network?

Usual problems are making sure that you select the correct security options at both ends and then DHCP problems. I would disable DHCP on the mac and select your own IP address above the existing ones to start with

Ibook g3

First of all, you need an Airport card for the iBook G3, chech for example this link; (you should buy one like this: 9deeeda.jpg

, there is a G4 card too, but your iBook doesn't support this one).
Next, install it;

Then, buy a wireless router that uses 802.11b/g or 802.11b. This is very important because your airport card doesn't support 802.11g, and install it, but don't protect your network with a WAP password, your iBook doesn't support this, but use WEP.
Then start your iBook, and click on the Airport icon in the right corner, select your network, type in the password and it will work!

Laser writer select 360 to Mac OS X 10.4.11 via AsanteTalk

You should phone the Asante tech support people in San Jose, CA, who will talk you through the fix for free. I lost my printer-MacPro connection, the other day, and everything works fine now, thanks to their advice.

I'm running 10.5.x and no WiFi so the fix may not be the same, but it was just a matter of sort of re-booting the Asante box. Here was my fix, if that helps:
1. Delete that printer from your list of printers in System Preferences.
2. Make sure your computer, printer, and Asante box are all hooked up together and turned on.
3. Click + under the list of printers in System Preferences.
4. Click AppleTalk icon in top row of dialogue box that appears.
5. After a moment, click Bluetooth icon instead.
6. After a moment, unplug the power cord from your Asante box (but not from the electrical outlet).
7. After a moment, re-plug the power cord into your Asante box and, as soon as possible after the "TX" light comes on, click the AppleTalk icon again.
8. Within a few moments, your printer's name should appear. Highlight its name, then make sure all the information about it that appears is correct, then click "Add."
9. Everything should communicate beautifully. I had no further problems.

No signal from router after closing laptop

Is it definately the router that's your problem, because most laptops are able to turn off the wireless connection especially when powered by battery alone to conserve power, so check the settings in your laptops wireless adapters properties.
