Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

2 Answers

I bought a wireless Linksys wireles- G router used for 5.00. They said that it had a weak signal. I hooked it up and sure enough I have a weak signal. So weak that it does not connect to anything but there is a small signal. Any thing I can try? What could cause that weak signal? Does it need repaired and if so where? Thanks, Wayne

If the router is too far away from the computer it will advise you of insufficient signal, You can always purchase a wifi antenna from www.Amazon.com.

I made mine into a range expander with this information

If you up to the challenge and can follow instructions, takes about 30 min to do.
When you put on the new OS for the router you can up your signal too.

I have bought linksys wag200g **** its not working properly when i use wifi on my mobile.... and device disconnected after every 1 or 2 minutes.. i have ADSL connection......


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

on your desktop, log in to the router (linksys is usually 192.168.1.1) through your web browser

the default password should be admin admin for username and password.

look to see what your ssid is.

on the netbook and ipod, go into your wireless settings and connect to the same ssis as before.

Weak signal problem can be fixed by firmware update however, if the client computer is too far from the router, it can't be helped. What you need is a wireless range expander. What it does is give you another 100% signal or atleast stronger signal to the spot or area where you have a weak or dead signal.

hello!

-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.
