Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to get my Gigaware 25-162 antenna kit onto my Linksys WRT54G wireless router.
How do I get the current antennas off of my linksys router so I can put the new ones on?
Many comments say 'Easy to install'.
It does not look like my current antennas unscrew but maybe they do.
Thank you. Pat
Versions 8.0 and above for this router DO NOT have detachable antenna.
You will NOT be able to detach the antenna on any wrt54g that has a serial number that begins with the following:
CDFG MDF0 CDFJ
A trend with any linksys router model is earlier versions are better (more RAM, linux os, faster chip, detachable antenna, etc), later models are exercises in cost cutting to deliver the 'same' specs on the box.

Well I just picked up the same router, and it does not have these rubber boots. the antennas snap in and there are no connectors where the antennas go in. What then???

I have that same router and I just ordered some new antennas for them. On the base of the antennas is a plastic or rubber boot, simple pull back on the boots and you can screw the antennas off at the base connection of your router. -- Good Luck
