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.

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

I have had a Linksys router for awhile now and I


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.

Linksys wrt54g SRX200. I can connect to my router


It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter


your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.
