Re: Internet connection problem.
If you have a macbook, it should have 802.11n, which gives you a 50ft range. Your linksys is probably the wireless G, which gives a 30ft range. Pull the power cable from the router and put it back in 5 secs later. Notice if you get flashing lights on the activity displat on the router. Linksys is the consumer side of Cisco. Ive seen those linksys routers blow in rainstorms. You may need to have to plug the computer to the router with an ethernet cable and reconfigure the wireless.
Let me know.....I can assist you in resetting the router.

The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.
Try turning off Airport. Your computer may be finding a wireless network and automatically switching to it, and getting an intermittent signal. Just a guess, but for a good ethernet connection you want to disable the Airport searching feature anyway. Open the System Preferences application, select "Network" and right on the top left of the resulting window there's a pretty big button that will either say "Turn Airport On" or "Turn Airport Off" - just turn it off if it's not already ...
Hope this helps!

You should be able to connect wirelessly from your Mac to your Cradlepoint router to obtain this information whether or not the phone is actually connected.
With your router powered up and operational, click the Airport icon on your top menu bar and turn your Airport on. Then click it again and watch for your Cradlepoint's wireless network name to appear. Using whatever WEP or WPA password you previously established, connect to the Cradlepoint.
Now under the Apple menu, choose System Preferences / Network. Select Airport, Advanced, then TCP/IP. (In releases other than Leopard, these choices may differ.) Look at the line marked "Router." That is the address you have to browse to in order to communicate with your Cradlepoint.
if it says you have a good connection, it means that you are connected to the router, though the router might not be connected to the internet. try powering off/on the router (leave off for 10sec.) to see if that corrects the internet connection issue.
Also, when it says that the connection is good, open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or 10.10.0.0 into the address bar (you can find this address by going to Network properties and looking at the Wireless settings. It should say "gateway" or "router". If you put that address in the browser it will pop up with the Netgear settings page if you have a good connection to the router. If so, then it's a problem with your router connecting to the internet and you might have to call your ISP/cable/phone company to get it fixed.
First of all... Unplug the modem, unplug the Airport (WiFi router) and turn off the Airport connectivity in your MacBook.
After 5 full minutes... Plug in the modem.
Wait 2 full minutes... Plug in the Airport.
Wait 1 full minute... Turn on the Airport connectivity in your MacBook.
After all of that...
If you're still not back up and running and you're using an Apple Airport, open the Applications folder, open Utilities, open Airport Utility.
If you're using any other type of WiFi router, use the Network Diagnostics button that should show up in the web browser window when you try to go to any website.
