    the WLAN of my WRT54G does not work. The router was completely configured and working but since yesterday my computer can't find any WLAN.
    If I connect via cable, I can access both the internet and the configuration interface. I tried to restore factory settings and performed a hardware reset, the WLAN LED at the router is active and WLAN is activated in the configuration, but I still can't connect. I tried differend computers.
    Perhaps anybody can help :)

    lost my WLAN too

    Funny, my WLAN just quit working in exactly this manner a few minutes ago. Fortunately my laptop sits next to the router on my desk, but my wife's office is too far away for a wired connection. Anybody else having this problem? Does anyone know of a solution?

    Re: lost my WLAN too

    Started toying around with the wireless settings. Found that after I changed the channel, both my computers can see the network again, but neither can connect to it. My computer prefers connecting to my neighbor's unsecured B network at 1 Mbps. :microwave:

    Possible answer

    Realized I lost my wireless network shortly after I began using the handset for my 2.4 GHz phone. I powered off the base and both handsets and reset the wireless settings on the router to what they had been before; had to convince Intel's stupid Proset software to use my wireless network instead of my neighbor's, but now I'm back up.

    I'd heard that 2.4 GHz phones and microwaves can interfere with a B/G network, but never seen it in action. To confirm, I checked my network before turning the phone on and was getting a full 54 Mbps. As soon as I turned the phones back on, my link speed dropped to 48 Mbps.

    Pushed the talk button on the handset (Panasonic KX-TG2564), and *boom* my wireless network disappeared. Pushed the off button and my network reappeared.

    So, there's the solution to my problem. Hopefully you're having a similar problem. This handset is about to get chucked into the trash can.
