    so i just got the wireless 300n etc. and it doesnt send the signal very far. i have my laptop in my front room it gets 80% and its 2 feet from the router. and i go to my bedroom which is like 15ft and it goes down to 55%. is there anyway to boost this or fix. cause i dont think it should be doing this.


    ok i guess i need to update firmware. but i cant figure out what version i have of firmware. and how to do it. i got the program tftp and i cant get the router address to work. does anyone know how to find it?

    It isn’t Also look in the admin section and I bet you will find that is where you update your firmware, they are on my WRT54GXx routers anyway.

    you did not look too far then

    Linksys WRT300N Firmware

    - To upgrade from previous firmware versions
    1) Upgrade using firmware: wrt300n.bin
    2) Upgrade using firmware: New_2.00.13_wrt300n.bin

    General Notes:
    - This firmware is only for usage in Europe
    - Disconnect all wireless clients from the router during
    the upgrade process. Make sure no wireless clients
    attempt to associate with the router until the upgrade
    process is complete.

    thanks for your reply!
    I'm a newbie in this area. I just bought the WRT300N to replace the "old" WRT54G, in order to solve some problems regarding wireless signal at home.
    The point here is, each time a click on the link of your post, a new windows is open showing Amazon.com webpage trying do seel me another WRT300N.

    by the way, what access point ou extender wireless signal device do you recommend to increase and strenght wireless signal throught some parts of the house with no wireless signal available ou weak signal?

    thanks in advance.

    meanwhile I managed to install FirmWare 2.00.13.
    I guess it's the most update version released so far.
    Let's see how it works now

    Do you know what new feactures are included in 2.00.13?
