    I use a LynkSys Wireless router model no. WRT54G
    My problem is that my wireless connection in my laptop goes off every 3 or 5
    minutes or so and I have to reconnect me again. It's really annoying.
    Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
    ....when I called LynkSys tech-support they told me that I had to change some
    a property of my wireless card, which they didn't know because my card is not
    from LynkSys...
    If anyone knows how to solve this problem or know what I have to configure
    in my wireless card's properties, please I would appreciate if you send me an
    e-mail to

    Thanks for your time and help.

    I have the same router and problem. I am picking up another SSID in my area
    and am assuming that is causing problems. I had no issue with this for the
    past three months until I found that unsecure SSID showing up in my preferred
    SSID's. Funny thing is that I can be 8 feet away from my router without a
    cordless phone or microwave near by and still drop my connection and find
    this SSID in my preferred.

    I have since upgraded to WPA security and unchecked the wireless properties
    box that say something like "allow windows to configure my network," and do
    not seem to be dropping as often.

    BTW, I received one reply to my topic "loose internet" sp lose. with a few
    helpful hints.

    Thanks to all who reply to this issue,

    Hello to everyone:

    I did what you recommended but nothing solved my problem. Instead I went to
    the wireless router's configuration page and change some properties that I'll
    soon mention. My connection has not gone off since then... it's benn almost
    one hour!! and it seems it won't go off this time.

    The old configuration was:
    SSID: a name different than the manufacturer's default name (don't want to
    display it here)
    WEP 128-bit security enabled
    Channel 6 (2.437 GHz)

    The new configuration is now:
    SSID: "linksys", which is the manufacturer's default name
    WEP 128-bit security disabled
    Channel 10 (2.457 GHz)

    do you think this is ok now considering that I am using the default SSID
    which anyone can easily pick up my signal with it, and considering that my
    connection is more vulnerable due to the fact I disabled the WEP 128-bit
    security? Does anyone suggest any other solution to this problem? If someone
    does, please post it here or send me an e-mail to:

    Thanks very much for your time and help, again
