Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Setting for mixed b/g is really only g.

I have a wifi phone that is only b and would like to be able to use it with my WCG-200 while keeping my other wireless computers logged in at g speeds. Are there any firmware upgrades to fix this software bug? Or is there a way to tweak something else?

    Thanks for looking at this. What I may not have adequately described is that the mixed ab&g setting seems to be only A&G not B, ie the setting on the webtool does not correctly set the router to mixed. The b wifi phone can not access the router while the it is set to mixed and only works if it is set to b. If I set it to b it works, but then all of my computers are on b and slower. I read about this bug somewhere, but was hoping for a solution. Otherwise... I'll get a new router.

I do not see a firmware upgrade available on Linksys page, but according to the manual, on the Wireless tab of the router interface it says the default setting is set to mixed. The only thing you can do I guess is log in and check the settings.

Manual is here for reference

My son keeps getting an error 5200 on his ds when trying to hook up to wifi

Hello :

1:Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. I highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.

2:Check your router's broadcast settings to find out if it is set to "G", "B", or "Mixed." Mixed typically works best, but try all three to see if it improves the network connection to the Wii console.

3:Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off. Wireless keyboards and mice may also cause interference.

good luck .
