Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Is it my Wireless or my Neighbor's??

I somehow lost my wireless connection that I named "PRINCESS". Ive been using it for years. After updating my LiveCare One on Window's Vista, my "Princess Network" disappeared. I'm now using the ethrenet cable to get a connection to the modem (which works great).

I can see wireless networks in my condo building...all are secured except one...can I secure this one as mine or could it possibly be a neighbor's ?
How do I tell if the unsecured network named "LINKSYS" is mine?

    Just to make sure I understand your question. You did have a wireless connection/ Network set up from your wireless router, right? That being the case, do you know how to connect to your router using ethernet cable? Let me know and I will walk you through finding out what the name of your network is and how we will go about changing it to something that you can identify quickly.

How can I remove my neighbor from my network

Easiest thing to do, Change the password to your router. Once this is done, it will prevent your neighbor from any further access to your router and of course prevent internet access. Most all routers are simply a local web address for access. Example: typed inside a browser address pane will take you inside the router. Check your router for setup procedures.

Have a great night..

No matter what i do and what settings i try my nice brand new WNDA3100 wont even aquire a network address. Connecting with or without security doesn't make a lick of difference it just times out...

Have you tried going to your WIRELESS CONNECTIONS, clicking PROPERTIES, the Click Authentication, then clear the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network check box. If it's not checked then it isn't being used. This can be a problem for those running XP with service pack one. You can also resolve the issue by getting service pack 2.

If that isn't your situation (ie you don't have xp with service pack 1) does it behave this way when the computer is sitting in the same room as the wireless router? Do other wireless machines you use connect to the router? Did you use netgear's utilities to set up your wireless network or the one in windows? Sometimes that can make all the difference.

If it works in the same room by not in another room it could be the antenna or something blocking the signal between the router and the machine such as a furnace.

If you set it up using netgear's utilities and it is functioning intermittantly (and you're sure the network set up is correct because sometimes you can get online) then it is possible the adapter itself has a problem. If it's new you can return it.

Also make sure you are using the correct GATEWAY, which would be the ip number of your router. It could be that you're picking up a weak signal from a nearby neighbor.

Is there anything in a PC that can cause interference with a wireless network? Because firefox ate my earlier question, I'll keep this short: PC used to keep laptop from connecting to internet when it was...

there is nothing inside a PC that will keep it or anything else from connecting to a wireless network. You have to lookout for things that use the same frequency such as cordless phones and believe it or not microwave ovens. both broadcast at 2.4Ghz which is the same frequency wireless routers and access points use. Your problem may also be a neighbor with a wireless router or access point using the same channel. Wireless routers and access points have 11 different channels that they can broadcast on and if you and your neighbor are using the same channel there will be interference. try changing the channel on your wireless router or access point.

I have an HP/Compaq 8230 that is 3 1/2 years old. Recently, my wireless has stopped working. "No networks found in range". It is an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG.

Do a wireless scan and see how many wireless connections are avaiable in your neighbor. If I was a beating men, that your wireless router is sharing a neighbor's wireless channel number.

It will not connect to the internet at all now it tells me that there is no access point in range and to check my SSid setting what is that

so that means your game console is using wireless connection. it's not detecting the wireless equipment(usually a wireless router) that it's connecting to. SSID is the name of the wireless network of the wireless router or access point. SSID is like an identification, so that your game console or wireless computer if they are connecting to the right equipment and not to your neighbor..

if you have other computers that are wireless and those are working right, it means the problem is on the game console.. try to power cycle the devices, turn off the modem, router or access point, computers and game console.. wait 1 minute, then turn on the modem first, router or access point next, then computers and game console..

2wire 1701 HG Gateway wireless not working


There could be a lot of possibilities why you lost your connections at the same time. Could be windows update or changes had been made in your 2wire 2701 HG.Its impossible to say that your wireless adapters turned bad all at the same time.As what you observed , wireless light is off meaning your 2wire doesnt detect any wireless connection. You can try reconnecting them 1 at a time by going to your wireless connection tool or network connections.

If that didnt help, you can use your PC w/c is connected using the USB connection. Using this step, you 'l have a chance to edit and view your wireless network. For you to access your 2wire you must know what your 2wire address {default gateway}. Using your hardwired pc go to start > run > type in cmd then hit enter > on the Dos command screen type in ipconfig and hit enter> youl see your default gateway . It would look like this for example cos sometimes it would vary depending what ISP you have, Open your fav browser and on your address bar type in your default gateway. That would lead you to your 2wire page, there youl have a chnace to view you home network. Check if your wireless encryption and you network name if everything is still the same. {Best thing is to change your wireless name or SSID. Then try to reconnect on your wireless connection for each computer and make sure you have your wireless encryption.

Hope that helps. Pls let me know asap if you need clarifications.
