    I fixed this the problem was actually a phillips tv signal sender. I have had if for months so never really considered it.

    I have switched them off and my signal came back immediately. So my WRT54G is again working flawlessly with version 2.2

    Hello guys,

    I have a WRT54G ver 2.2 bought nov 2004.

    I only use it with my laptop and pretty much go with the default connections apart from SSID and WEP keys.

    The DHCP is assigned by router for both wireless and wired connections.

    About 3 days ago I lost the connection to the router. At the same time a "default" connection appeared. The strength of the connection means that this "default" connection is being broadcast by my router. I live in a detatched house and my nearest neighbour is around 75 feet away so not really any chance of getting a strong connection from them.

    I can connect to the default connection and even get assigned an IP but cannot connect to the internet. When I try to connect to the admin panel instead of it saying "linksys" it says "54Mbps wireless G router" and i cannot logon.

    Using my desktop which is wired I can access the router no problem. Eventually I gave up. The next morning the laptop still showed the default connection. I opened firefox and hey presto my connection was BACK :thumbup:

    This lasted for 1.5 days until last night after a real flurry of hard disk activity the same thing happened.

    Today as I right this the connection hasn't re appeared despite changing the broadcast channels and removing any security from the router as recommended in the linksys site help guide. :cry:

    So I come here looking to see if anyone knows why after 12 months of hassle free wireless surfing I am now having problems with my router.

    I don't want to lost the router as it's been working effortlessly since day 1 until just now should I try a reset.

    I'm a bit afraid of that since my ISP requires give access based on the mac address of my pc network card when I first set it up I cloned it from advice given by my pc shop but i've lost this advice. Just wondered if this was a regular problem and if so is there anything I can do about it.

    One possible snippet of information is that both times I was playing World of Warcraft when it happened and sometimes playing that completely laggs the connection.
