When you say "quit working", do you mean the power is out on it or you can't access the internet?

Cant find a strong enough connection


You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    Intermittent/non-existant connection with LinkSys WRT54G router


    I would get a Range Expander... it sounds like you are having problems recieving a constant signal. When you do get the range expander plug the Range Expander halfway between you upstairs computers and your downstairs where your router is at. I hope this helps!!

    Before you plug it in the wall, insert the installation disc and go through their tutorial. When you do that you'll plug in your range expander, press the auto configuration button on the side and wait for both lights to turn up blue. Then you can unplug the range expander and put it else where.
