Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
This problem is usually caused by the software encryption you are using. Depending on the age of your computer and the operating system you are using, it may not support all available encryption software.
Some people have reported improved wireless performance by switching to WPA encryption
To find out if that's the problem first turn off the encryption software in your router and see if you can access the internet. If this works then you know the its the encryption. However you really don't want to keep your router wide open so find out what kind of wireless adapter your computer has (intel, netgear, etc...) by looking in your device manager then go to the manufacturer's web page and download the latest drivers you may also be able to do this through windows update. There may be a wireless connection agent software that you can replace the windows connection agent with. This will allow more encryption software availability. Also depending on the age of the router its a good idea to upgrade the firmware on the router.
