    Help, its driving me crazy!

    i have installed the linksys router wrt54gs with a SBC DSL box (the 4 light model, 5100B?) using mostly the factory default settings.

    when i connect to the outside world via an ethernet cable directly to my g4 powerbook the connection is flawless, i.e no disruptions.

    however, when i switch to the airport/wireless the signal is extremely intermittant. full strength-nothing-full strenght, every couple of minutes, sometimes longer, 30 min. and this is with my laptop being within 2-3 feet of the linksys router (i.e its not a distance thing).

    i have done nothing to change the wireless settings on the linksys router, these are all set to the factory defaults (mainly cause a lot of these settings mean nothing to me).

    the only thing i have tried is changing the channel from the default (6) to other channels. this really made no improvement.

    i note there are a number of settings in the 'advanced wireless settings' tab of the linksys setup. is there something in here that i can tweak to improve the consistency of the wireless signal?

    would appreciate any help with this.

    regards
