    I am new to this forum and I have tried to search for a solution to my issue without luck.

    I have a Freebox with a router feature on. I use my Linksys WAG54G 1.01.7 as a wifi spot (Bridged mode only) to enable the connection of my laptop (windowx XP) with WPC54G.
    My laptop is positionned 10 m away with two walls separating the rooms on the same floor (appartment). the signal fades to 1 MB, connection becomes slow and sometime I loose the connection.
    Calling Linksys support in order to see how to enhance signal, they suggested to modify the channels. originally I am on channel 11, I have tested all other channels. the best one was 9, nevertheless I loose after a while connection even if my connection shows a strong signal. this is also true even if I am very close to the WAG54G. So my question is : how can I enhance the signal power?

    Does anyone have an idea? should I upgrade the firmware ? the driver of my WPC54G is

    Sorry for this long post, I hope it is clear and thank you for your help

    i had a simmilar issue i have a centrino laptop and everytme i would be connected for a while it would also fade to 1 mbps

    i later found out that the centrino tech sends the wifi card to bed without supper if it isnt being used. I.E it goes into power saver mode.

    also the 2 walls may be saturated with wires that would make the connection sucky

    also i apologize for this communities crappy response time
    people go to a forum to get help and give help and i wanted to see that happen.
