Question about Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a linskys wrt54g2 v1 router. I have my playstation 3 connected to it wirelessly. Everything has been working fine for months. Now all of a sudden I keep losing connection every 10-20 minutes. It's not the PS3, because it does this for my laptop too. The connection is lost for maybe 10 seconds then comes back. Is there any advice on what to do? I can hardly play a full game without getting kicked because i lose connection.

1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

You don't need any kind of installation CD. Just open your wireless connection manager on the OS you're using in your laptop and connect to your wireless network.
If you need to configure the router, go to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser to open the router's configuration page.

Stop using the setup disk. It does not work. Connect to your router via a web browser to 192.168.1.1. Username blank, input your password and configure the router as normal.

Inability to connect to Internet


The easiest solution would be to use an ethernet connection. A second problem is probably on most cable modems you can either use a USB connection OR an ethernet connection you cannoot use both at the same time.
