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!

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.

Unable to stream novie sites with my linksys wireless-g router


Check the connection (signal) strength of your wireless connection in the status area of the task bar in Windows. Also, hovering the mouse over the wireless connection should reveal the connection speed. 54mbps is the highest you can expect on a wireless connection, which is generally OK for streaming video..Any less of a signal strength/connect speed will likely not be adequate for streaming video.

A poor signal strength is usually because of too much distance or too many walls between the router and the computer.

Hope that's helpful.

Sounds like you may be experiencing excessive interference in the WIFI space. Try setting the linksys router to use a different wireless frequency. (normally the available ones are 1 - 11).

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:

  • Cabinets
  • Mirrors
  • Glasses
  • Metal objects
  • Thick walls and ceilings


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.

Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G doesn't send a wireless signal out anymore. I did the driver update and still doesnt work.


1. check the RJ 45 cable see if you are getting a signal through a hard connection if not go in to the router and check the status. You may have to reset the router and to release/ renew the IP in the router. Call Linksys for there support they will be happy to do check-sums to see if the router is defective. you can also check their site for troubleshooting to check the router to see if there is a malfunction.

How do i connect and get signal?


This is a common problem with Linksys wireless routers and primarily the WRT54G and WRT54GS. For some odd reason they all of a sudden go stupid and forgetful.

The easiest method to revive these routers is to go to the Linksys web site and get the automatic configuration download for your specific model of wireless router.

Hope this helps you
