WAG54G - connection timeout

    Hello Has anyone got any experience in setting up this wireless router / modem?

    I have recently bought a Linksys wireless 4 port Modem / Router WAG54G. I have 3 laptops to connect 2 Dell D600 & 1 Compaq Evo N600. I'm not a techy but somehow managed to get the wife's laptop connected ok (wireless) D600 & then got mine connected D600. Or so I thought!

    I keep getting kicked of the Internet! & the wife's is ok? I looked at her signal strength & it is 54Mbs & I only get 11? I worked out that my wife's laptop has an 802.11 b&g card & I only have 802.11 b! so that answers that one.

    Another curve ball, when I connect my laptop via patch lead directly into the hub All is ok & works all day without being kicked off!

    I have upgraded the firmware to version 1.02.1, upgraded to the latest wireless lan driver on my laptop & still get kicked off!!

    Can anyone help? I'm getting drustrated by the day and am about ready to send it all back to linksys!

    Thanks in advance, Conor.

    Hi Conor,

    is it worth dropping the conenction speed of the WAG54g to 11mbps rather than running at the MAX. I have found on the V1.2 router that its more stable that way, esp if you are mixing the 802.11's.

    If that does not resolve the problem, perhaps have a look at the power management of the wifi card, could be turning into hibernation mode?

    Without seeing it first hand its hard to say.

    If no one has been setting "access restrictions" on the router then I would be pointing at the link reliability. (bringing it back to 11mbps is a good start)

    I have "upgraded" toa V2 box and havent look back since, might be worth a go, depends on your results of speed change.

    also make sure your running the latest drivers for that card (and for the proper country)
