    A few months ago I bought the wrt54g for using wireless connection on my laptop. On the network there are connected: 1 XP Pro(wired) 1 MAC(wired) and my laptop wich is XP Home.

    Most of the time the connection with the router is dropping every 5 till 60 minutes, at this time it's dropping every 10 minutes it's driving me crazy :$

    My Firmware Version: v7.00.0

    I think it has something to do with the router and not the pc's because they drop all at the same time.

    There are other networks in my area but I already tried putting autodetect of.
    when the connection drops I also can't see my router at the: "View Wireless Networks".

    If anyone can please help me it's really driving me crazy.

    Sounds like something is wrong with the router. Has the router been rebooted recently? Firmware maybe reflashed, though it sounds more like a router/wireless issue then anything with the firmware.

    Yes I have rebooted it recently, I've tried almost everything with reboot etc.

    but it seems as now that I'm only connected with the laptop (wireless) and the other PC's(wired) are turned off the connection drops less often.

    I really don't know what it is but it's driving me crazy!

    You could try setting the advanced wireless settings on router. Beacon to 50 and positioning the anntenas or router in a higher position. signal strength can be affected by numerous things. take a look at the tweaking guide here: Wireless Signal Tweaking

    You could just upgrade the firmware to the lastest version. Hope that it works!
