Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I just moved into share accommodation and am trying to connect to my room-mate's wireless. He has the password and everything, but we don't even get to enter it. When I search for the network, his comes up very strongly, but when we go to connect to it, it says the network is out of range and to refresh+retry. This happens even when we are right next to it and it is the strongest network in range. A friend suggested I download software for the router? Any help would be much appreciated.
Although changing the software used to connect to the program might work, what you might wanna find out is the kind of security that is enables on the router. Find out if it;s MAC authentification, WEP encyption or simple plain hidden SSID.
Once you have determined the type of security that rides on the router your friend would have to do one of the following:
1. Issue you the SSID name of the router
2. Issue you the WEP key used to secure the network
3. Add your MAC address in, if he uses mac authentification.
Other than which, to my knowledge, connection to wireless access points usually work best when you use intelproset wireless program. That kinda solves the whole deal. Let me know how it goes. Dont hesitate t get back to me on this issue. Thanks.

Go to main computer, go to the address bar type in 192.168.1.1 at the user name leave blank, in the password bar type in admin, go to the set-up tab, check the password, go to your computer, do the same, and should be up and running, let me know, and we will go from there.
