I have a Lynksys wireless g 54 router. It worked fine till last week. Problem occurs, it can not associate with the access point, and it can't be found in "site survey". I unplugged the router, replug in, didn't solve the problem. Could it be something wrong with the router? It's never been damaged or mishandled.

Re: can not associate with the access point
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

Try restarting your access point then restarting your computer. I have a wireless network and have to do this regularly. After I do, everthing works fine. As long as nothing happened to change your network settings on your computer, the restart should work.
I hope that this information was helpful and gets you started on the right track to solving your problem.
You can boost the signal range of a WiFi computer network in several ways:
reposition your router
(or access point) to avoid obstructions and radio interference. Both
reduce the range of WiFi network equipment. Common sources of
interference in residences include brick or plaster walls, microwave
ovens, and cordless phones. Additionally, consider changing the WiFi channel number on your equipment to avoid interference.
add another access point (or router). Large residences
typically require no more than two APs, whereas businesses may employ
dozens of APs. In a home, this option requires connecting your primary
wireless router (access point) to the second one with Ethernet cable;
home wireless routers and/or APs don't normally communicate with each
add a bi-directional WiFi signal amplifier to wireless
devices as needed. A WiFi signal amplifier (sometimes called "signal
booster") attaches to a router, access point or Wi-Fi client at the
place where the antenna connects. Bi-directional antennas amplify the
wireless signal in both transmit and receive directions. These should
be used as WiFi transmissions are two-way radio communications.
add a WiFi repeater. A wireless repeater
is a stand-alone unit positioned within range of a wireless router
(access point). Repeaters (sometimes called "range expanders") serve as
a two-way relay station for WiFi signals. Clients too far away from the
original router / AP can instead associate with the WLAN through the
Open router site by giving IP. http://192.168.1.1 in your Browser
Config. your router from setup the enable network router will attain gateway IP Auto. Save the changes. your internet will be connected.
First you must be sure you are connected to the router (by wireless or cable). Than you have to open a browser and access 192.168.1.245. You will be asked for an username and passowrd. Username case leave it blank and the password is admin To set a password for wireless you need to go to wireless configuration. For more detailed info look in the users guide at chapter 3.

1. is it installed properly?
2. what is the Operating System of your computer?
3. what is the wireless access point or wireless router your using?
4. is there any computers working fine via wireless connection?
As with any wireless protocol, 54g has overhead associated with it that limits performance. While signaling data rates of up to 54 Mbps may be achieved, like most shared media (e.g. Ethernet) throughput will be significantly less. There are two scenarios for 54g performance. In an environment with only 54g clients, throughput can exceed 24 Mbps. This performance is equivalent to that of 802.11a, although 54g is usually available over a greater range. The second scenario is where 802.11b clients are present. RTS/CTS flow control must be used to allow 802.11b clients to recognize and establish communications with 802.11g access points. This leads to delays in transmission and drops peak throughput to about 10 Mbps. 54g performance is still well in excess of the maximum measured speeds of 4-5 Mbps for 802.11b. The use of RTS/CTS is important because it provides determinism to the wireless network, ensuring a minimum bandwidth for each user. Like Ethernet, 802.11 LANs normally use a ג?carrier sense media accessג? mechanism to signal transmission without asking for permission from the network. As the network becomes highly loaded, collisions occur more frequently and the network can become saturated with packet retransmission attempts that eventually make it impossible for any data to get through. RTS/CTS provides a more formalized flow-control mechanism that avoids this problem.
