Question about Broadcom (BCM94318MPG) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

I have a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter and a Cisco/Linksys WRT54GS Router. The signal is extremely poor even though the router is only 10 feet away. It does not appear to be an interference issue.

    Firmware is up to date. I changed channels between 1, 6, and 11 - hasn't effected the signal either way.

  • l_dieringer Mar 13, 2011

    The firmware is up to date. I changed between channels 1, 6, and 11 with no effect.

  • l_dieringer Mar 13, 2011

    Firmware is up to date, and I switched between channels 1, 6, and 11 without no difference in results.

Hi,
You can update the Linksys Firmware to a newer version if is available, please check the Linksys support site
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54GS
Another chance is to change the Wireless Channel maybe 11, to avoid any intereference with wireless phones.
Regards,

  • l_dieringer Mar 13, 2011

    There are no other devices connected to this network.

    I've adjusted every setting I think of - I'm giving up - maybe a newer, stronger router in the future. It appears all firmware is up to date, all setting are as they should be.

Often times something unseen can be blocking the signal, such as heavy material (brick walls or bathroom piping). Try moving around the room and seeing if the signal is still poor.

Try disabling the onboard wireless adapter- the two may be conflicting w/ each other. The other thing I can think of is try a system that does NOT have wireless onboard (a desktop for instance)- that way you could see if the issue is indeed the internal connection's broadcast interfering with the usb adapter

Check to make sure that you don't have any cordless phones in the area or ductwork directly below your computer between the adapter and the router.

Ok, since im figuring these are fairly new products, you should call Linksys, concidering you are still under warranty. If I were to make a guess, maybe you needed to forward or open a port on the router to allow signal to flow between the two.

Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
  • 2.4 GHz interference: Your router may be operating on the same frequency as your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.

  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

ok, you seem to be going around it the wrong way round, if you are trying to connect to your friends network you would not connect to his pc you would connect to his router, so you cannot use your router to connect to his. assuming you have a wireless network adapter, which you must have, you simply connect to your friends router via your pc and not your router, you cannot have one router connecting to another, only signal boosters. when your'e network adapter detects a network, select your'e friends and then enter the passkey when prompted, so turn off your router,as it can only be used for your own network, as it musn't be connected to your modem, or else you wouldnt need to connect to your friends. If you want to connect to your friends pc for file sharing make sure he has is sharing set up and you both have the same workgroup name e.g. mshome
