You can try changing channels (1,11,9) or relocating the devices, you may also need to check obstructions or interference like cordless phone running on 2.4GHZ. because even if you change the advanced settings, (I just dont know if this router has an option to change the optimal range but you can check the advanced wireless setting under wireless tab on your router setup page) it may not work.

I have a strong wireless signal but I can not get on to the internet


Having a good wireless connection, does not mean you have an internet connection. Go into the router and click on status and see if you have an internet connection active on the router. You can click on setup in there and start again for settin g up your internet connection, you will need the username and password giving to you by your Internet Service Provider when you originally signed up with them

I want to disable the wireless signal from the hours of 12:05am-6:00am. I have one computer physically connected to the router, and 2 xbox 360's and one laptop using the wireless signal.


Hi, you can set up an Internet access policy through the router that will block Internet access for specific computers. The Internet Access Policy screen can be found in the router's configuration software, under Access Restrictions and then Internet Access. You can choose time ranges to block and specific computers or devices for it to apply to.

How can I increase my WIFI range. My internet signal is very weak when I am in my bedroom. Can I increase my range by possibly buying a signal extender.


Try moving the wireless router around and or higher.
If the wireless router is in a different room and the room has concrete walls of foils insulation in the walls, this will weaken the wireless signal. AND/OR
You can connect add a antenna to your computer. Have a look at this device. Normal 0 USB High Gain Antennas www.pricewatch.com/gallery/networking/high_gain_antenna

I have wireless-G WRT54G2 V1...the signal coverage is weak. If it is more than about 5 m then the signal is lost. Any clue how to fix


the easiest solution is to buy a wireless expander.
http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/products/WRE54G
this will expand the range of your current router.

however before buying check the following:
your router is not near wireless land telephones, near a tv, or near any other obstacles that could block the signal.
try to put your router somewhere high.

Having trouble connecting. I see my encrypted router, but it shows as "unknown." And when I try to connect with it, connection fails. Says not in range although I'm in my own house. :o)


you said that you can see the wireless network but it shows as unknown network
I think SSID broadcast on your wireless network must be disabled.
You will need to enable the SSID broadcast of your network.
Also try to change the wireless channel on the router.
WRT54G router's IP address will be 192.168.1.1. if you have not changed it.
Do you have any other computer connected to the router woth the ethernet cable ?
If you do not have the computer connected to the route then connect 1 computer to the rotuer with the ethernet cable.
Do not change any wireless setting on the wireless computer.
You will need to open the set up page of the router

Linksys Wireless G stopped functioning properly


try just ur wireless N first that should take care of the whole property they have the best range.
if you didnt bridge the G then the signal is stoping at the G not going to ur N router
try just the N router configure that by just accessing ur User Interface

on ur command prompt or DOS screen type ipconfig with just ur N router
you should get 192.168.1.1
type that in ur addressbar and it should take u to ur linksys page
password might be one u set up or it could be username (blank)
password (admin)
type in ur username and password in router from ur ISP
set the wireless range all the way up and u should be good to go

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?

Wireless Network?


The modern laptop and Wii will be no problem. Windows 98 will work but it can be much trickier to set up.

Parts needed
1 x Wireless Router - You can pick up a 2WIRE Router from around £20 on eBay
3 x Wireless LAN Network Adaptors - Around £20 each.

Firstly, the Router. This bit connects to your telephone line and broadcasts your broadband signal by radio and allows several computers to use one service. When you buy a router make sure it includes installation software. You can install routers without, but it's a whole lot easier if you have it.

Next you need to be able to receive the broadband radio signal on your computers and Wii.To receive the signal you need Wireless LAN Network Adaptors on each device. Network Adaptors also have software, which allows you to install the drivers needed.

Your laptop may already have a wireless adaptor built in.
You can check this by clicking
Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Communications\Network Connections
Then see if a Wireless adaptor is present. If it isn't, you can install one inside the laptop by buying a laptop wireless network card. Easier, is to buy a USB Wireless LAN Network Adaptor which just plugs in to a USB socket on the laptop.

Look for LAN Network adaptors that are suitable for the Wii and a separate one suitable for Windows 98. Most will be ok for the laptop.

Install the router first. just do what the software tells you, then install the LAN adaptor drivers on each device you want networked.

Finally, make sure you secure your router signal. That stops the guy next door using your network and offers some security from hackers. Your router will include a firewall and you can set up a key code that your adaptors will need before they can connect. Unless the guy next door has the key, he won't be able to use
your network and play your MP3s...hoorah!
Follow the instructions given in the software to set up a WPA or WEP security key.

Great fun, you'll love it if you can get it all going.
