Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
My router suddenly gets a poor signal. It is a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G and Ive had it for about 3.5 years. It has always sent a strong signal, but suddenly it gets a poor signal, sometimes no signal. I have unplugged the modem and the router to no avail. I have pressed the reset button, to no avail. Its it past its prime, or is there something I can do? Thanks!
Go to www.linksys.com click support were it says "start here" type in your router modle #, scroll down alittle click on "download" select your version, then click download firmware. This will update you router and should make it more stable. Good Luck jope this helps.

Locate at the router's management page the Basic Wireless settings. At this section locate the line displaying "wireless channel" and change it at any channel you like, your connected devices will auto locate the new channel and connect without any problem. This happens from time to time, especially when a strong wireless transmitter is (or comes) near the Wi-Fi area (maybe a wireless phone is your problem or something like that).
Take care that in case you make a change at another setting, your connected devices may not locate the new setting, so you will have to connect to the router using the ethernet connection in order to recover your problem.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Low or poor signal is mainly caused by the following major factors:
Going Around Physical Obstructions
Wireless networks are also susceptible to obstructions that may lead to low signal. Often, the signal gets reflected, refracted or absorbed by the obstruction.
Common obstructions are:
If you have any of these objects between your wireless adapter and access point, consider relocating your access point somewhere high to get around the obstruction.
