Attaching gigaware antenna kit to linksys wrt54g wireless router

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.
Please help
Thank you. Pat

    I am still unable to get my existing antennas off.

    I bought it at Wal-Mart and I'm wondering if Wal-Mart had a model made just for them where the antennas don't come off.

    I think I'm just going to have to take the new antennas back where I bought them and get my money back.

    My other thought is to try and contact Linksys and see if they can help. We'll see.

    Thanks for your help.

    Guest,

    Thanks for your comment. Now I know I'm not totally crazy.

    Were you able to pull the antennas straight out and put them back in without breaking the unit?

    If so then maybe there is an adapter that will snap in with threads on the other end that will fit the new antennas. Maybe! I'm not getting my hopes up.

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:
CDFF
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.

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

Do i need an antenna on my laptop?


You'll need to have a wireless card installed in your laptop somehow. If it's internal then you won't need one.

Most wireless cards today have pretty decent internal antennas.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

You see what is happening is that the signals are hetrodyning together and cancelling out, so it all just messes up because they are on the same basic frequency of 2.4GHz. Either make the antenna(s) Directional,or Try changing channels on either one, or both, if you can set channels as far apart as you can.

Wireless router installation


You will need to push in the reset button with a paper clip. The reset button is on the back of the router near one of the antenna.
here are the proper instructions:

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
