PostPosted: Mon Mar 28, 2005 3:07 pm    Post subject: Losing wireless connection on WRT54GP2 Reply with quote Back to top

Hello everyone. I have a laptop with built in 54g. With my previous wireless router (D-Link DI-624 rev c), my wireless connection was rock solid. However, with the WRT54GP2, I experience frequent drops in connection. The laptop will drop out momentarily, and then "reconnect". However, when it reconnects, I no longer have access to the internet. I have to disable / re-enable the wireless connection to get the Internet back.

This is getting very frustrating. I'm fairly confident that this is a router problem, because it's the only thing that has changed in my setup in the last year or so.

For reference, here are my specs:

Linksys / Vonage wireless router -- firmware 1.27.02, Jan 25 2005.
E-machines M6809 laptop with built-in wireless networking.
Windows XP Professional (SP2)

I have tried various security settings, thinking maybe the Linksys implementation of WEP or WSA-PSK was faulty (or just incompatible with my wireless setup). It doesn't matter what settings I use, wireless connections are intermittent. I also tried changing frequencies (even though I don't have any 2.4 Ghz devices that would cause interference). This didn't really help either.

Any suggestions? Any new firmware versions in the works that would address this problem?

I had the exact same problem. My nic was an external Linksys A/B/G one though. The problem started after I updated the drivers and implemented WPA-PSK. I tried messing with frequencies, power levels, encyrption schemes, etc... nothing seemed to work. I happened to have a Cisco A/B/G nic floating around so I popped that in. I haven't had the problem since. You would think that a Linksys Acces Point/Linksys nic combo would not have any compatibility problems. Maybe Cisco's driver updates to Linksys products haven't come of age yet??? Who knows? If you have another wireless nic handy, you may want to try that one and disable your built in one.

Unfortunately, I don't have an extra wireless nic lying around. I sold it when I bought the new laptop.

I tried changing some more settings -- using a static IP instead of DHCP, etc. -- still no go. It's aggravating since I spent the extra money specifically for the WRT54GP2, only to end up with a wireless router that isn't anywhere near as stable as my old one. (I've had other problems with it, too. About once a week, it seems to lose its Internet connection. I have to unplug it / plug it back in. Then it works fine.)

I hope a new firmware is being worked on that will address this situation. Otherwise, the switch over to Voip is going to be a frustrating one (which is a shame since I've been very happy with Vonage in general).

I just made a discovery this evening. Turns out the wireless NIC built into my laptop is a Linksys adapter as well.

My thoughts exactly...

I also spoke to a friend of mine who has the same router and a Linksys wireless NIC. He's having similar issues.

Grrr...

how about using the D-Link for your wireless AP and keeping the wrt for the phone. at least it's a temporary fix until linksys gets their act together

Actually, I did do this a few days ago. It's been working great ever since.

I was a little hesitant to at first since it was a combination router / access point, and I didn't know if having two routers on the same network would cause problems. But, I got it to work without too much trouble. The connection is now stable again. One other thing I noticed is that transfer speeds are faster as well. At this point, even if Vonage / Linksys do fix this problem, I may stick with the D-Link for performance reasons.

Thanks for the suggestion, though. I appreciate it!

I have a Belkin Wiress Router and have the same problem. It doesn't matter what type of NIC i use ... I still have the problem. Maybe I should try upgrading the firmware on my Vonage Phone Adapter/Router.
