Cannot maintain wireless connection

Laptop is 95 days old. Has worked fine on my Linksys WRT54GS which was 3 years old. Router died and I bought a Linksys WRT310N and have about 35 hours invested trying to get it to connect. We have 2 XP Pro laptops that connect fine. The newest laptop with Vista will not even see the wireless network most of the time. Everything is updated. Latest Bios & driver updates from HP and all Windows Vista updates & Service pack 1. Finally got it to connect last night and it worked for approx. 40 minutes and now won't see the network again.

I had a similar problem with WRT54GS last month. I use it for both desktops and laptops at home. It had worked for 3 years. All of a sudden one desktop and 2 laptops could no longer connect. None of the machines had been updated. The mystery deepened because the other desktop an laptops we have still got internet access.

I used the drastic approach. It worked.

1. Reset the router to factory settings
2. Remove the internet cable connecting Modem/Router from the modem and insert it into a laptop or desktop
3. Open an internet browser
4. In the address bar type in the IP address 192.168.1.1 - if that doesn't work use 192.168.0.1
5. Re-install the router, required security (WEP, WAP), your new SSID and password
6. Remove the internet cable from PC/laptop and put it back into the modem
7. You will have internet connection

If this doesn't work then you will require a new router.

Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

RESETTING WIRELESS ROUTER


You don't have to reset the router to use it for a wired connection. You will need an Ethernet cord connected directly to the device that you want internet connectivity for. Such as a Desktop or Laptop
I hope this helps. Have good day!

Take your wireless laptop or device, and do a wireless scan in your yardk or in your car. If there is more than one, check the wireless channel number that your router is broadcasting on. If your router is on the same number, it will cut out. Once you find out what free channel number is, then you need to change that router to that number and that should take care of it.

double check that your router is not broadcasting in only G, make it reverse compatible. There is a chance that the other laptop may not be G compatible. Also check the security key and make sure it is correct. If your blocking connections by MAC address make sure the MAC of the non functioning computer is added. You may want to delete the current connection settings from the laptop and restart with a fresh wireless connection. I hope this helps. Good luck

  1. First you may need to check if the WLAN or Wireless light on the router is on.
  2. Try connecting your ITouch to a different wireless network.
  3. If you can borrow a wireless ready laptop from a friend, then borrow one.
  4. Check if the laptop will be able to detect a wireless signal from router.
Please update me about this matter.

Cannot connect anymore


Does the router work with the wired port connection? It's entirely possible that the router just went belly-up on you ...Linksys is an awesome brand, but sometimes it happens.

If the wired part works, the wireless transmitter inside may have gone bad. Best to just get a new one for about $50 ...but keep the old one in case you need a wired connection somewhere else around the house :)
