Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Connectivity This problem came up in the middle of our usual excellent wireless capabilities...all of the sudden, didn't work although our main computer gets internet. We are getting the word "linksys" when it detects the profiles, but not our usual two access points. When I go to profiles, I see my usual profile, but it won't connect me...just keeps connecting me to the new "linksys" profile which shows excellent connectivity but doesn't actually connect. Help!!!

I get a strong signal but win XP says no to poor connectivity. its worked fine for 3 years - linksys WAP54G

If this worked fine for three years, something physical in your environment has changed. First put whatever was moved back where it was. Then check the antenna connection(s) both on your router and inside your computer for corrosion and fit. Also make sure your wireless adapter card is securely mounted inside the computer. Then you should check your wireless adapter settings to make sure someone has not "helped" you.
Right click on my network places, select (Click) properties, and when the next window opens right click on the wireless adapter icon and select (click) properties. Check the adapter settings by clicking on the configure option next to the connect using xxxxx to make sure you are set for the proper 802.11 g mode of operation etc. When you click OK your wireless adapter will be re-configured for any changes made. You should make changes with care., especially since everything used to work. You should repeat the My Network Places etc. and then choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and check these settings as well. The only setting in this area that may cause a connectivity problem is IF a QoS Packet Scheduler service is listed in the window. However, QoS is usually a GOOD thing to have installed. Once again, any changes you make will be changed in Windows when you click OK. I would re-boot the computer to let Windows accept any changes you make.

Dropping wireless connection to laptops

You should be able to log into your modem using the IP address
to check the levels coming to the modem from your cable provider. Typically the downstream level should be in between -12 to +12dB with an SNR of 33 or higher. Upstream level should be in between 35 and 50. 35 being good and 50 being less desirable. SNR on upstream should be 23 or higher.
If the levels are anywhere within these specs you should have no problems with the modem.
My suggestion would be to log into your router and change the channel # that your router is broadcasting. This should be in between Ch. 1 to Ch. 11 Most routers are default to 6 9 or 11 so if I'm having any issues I will use Ch 7 or 4. (I've seen some 900MHz cordless phones mess with some channels.)
If that doesn't work try another ethernet cable between the modem and router.
Good Luck

Not able to install the software, tells me mdm.exe has stopped working and won't go any farther

Manual Setup: This option is best if you cannot use the wizard on the CD, are replacing an
existing router, or are technically knowledgeable. Follow the instructions in this manual to set
up your router.

Connecting Your Router
1. Connect the router, the computer, and the modem.
a. Turn off your computer.
b. Turn off and unplug the cable or ADSL broadband modem.
c. Locate the Ethernet cable (1) that connects your computer to the modem.
d. Disconnect the cable at the modem end only (2).
e. Securely insert the free end of the cable (1) into a LAN port on the router, such as LAN
port 4 (3).

f. Securely insert the yellow cable (5) that came with your router into the yellow Internet
port of the router (4) and the other end into the modem (2).

Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access
To access the router using its login name and password, follow these instructions.
1. Connect to the router by typing in the address field of your
browser, then click Enter.

For security reasons, the router has its own user name and password. When prompted, enter
admin for the router user name and password for the router password, both in lower case

Enter the user name and password. The router will display its home page.

When the router is connected to the Internet, click the Knowledge Base or the Documentation link
under the Web Support menu to view support information or the documentation for the router.
If you do not click Logout, the router will wait 5 minutes after there is no activity before it
automatically logs you out.
Set Up and Test Basic Wireless Connectivity
Follow the instructions below to set up and test basic wireless connectivity. Once you have
established basic wireless connectivity, you can enable security settings appropriate to your needs.
1. Log in to the router at its default LAN address of with its default
user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and
password you have set up.
2. Click the Wireless Settings link in the main menu of the router.
3. Note that the default SSID is NETGEAR.
4. Set the Region. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate.
5. Click Apply to save your changes.
6. Configure and test your computers for wireless connectivity.
Program the wireless adapter of your computers to have the same wireless network name
(SSID) as the router. Check that they have a wireless link and are able to obtain an IP address
by DHCP from the router.
