Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have had my Dell laptop connected to my Linksys router wirelessly for years, while my Dell desktop is connect through a cable. I just bought a new AT&T mobile phone (Tilt) which has wi-fi...every time I try to connect the the Tilt via wi-fi is shuts down my internect connection on everything and I have to reboot my cable model, wireless router and computer...any ideas?
Well... That's an interesting problem.
Try changing the wireless channel that your router is running on via the web interface in the router. See what happens when you try to connect the "Tilt" then.
If that doesn't work, then find out if the Tilt is running on 802.11b or 802.11g. Disconnect all wireless devices from the router and change the router's Wireless standard to either B or G ONLY. (Whichever the phone is.) Connect the Tilt again without any other devices connected to the router. See if it reboots again.
Those are basics for now. I've never tried connecting a phone to a router like that before. Otherwise I would definitely contact your provider and ask them about it. Given that the WRT54G is the most common consumer-level NAT router on the market, they are sure to be having issues with it where other customers are concerned.
Unless another wireless device you have is causing the issue. But that is what you are trying to pinpoint with the above procedures.
Give it a go and see what happens.
