i set up a home wireless network in my house, with the router and modem in my basement. i usually get great signal, but sometimes my router will "disappear" from my list of connectable networks. i dont know if this is a privacy setting, or if its malfunctioning hardware, but does anyone have any tricks i can try to make it work?

Did this just start happening or has it been doing it since you installed them? It could be interference from another piece of equipment.

I've had this problem, too. You probably already do this, but to fix it, I just refresh the wireless networks and my router usually reappears. I'm not sure what's causing it, though.

One common problem is that 900mhz cordless phones often interfere with Wi-fi signals, if you have a 900mhz phone you may want to think about upgrading or sometimes moving the receiver to a different part of the house will help. there are lots of other things that can interfere but that seems to be the most common.

Have you checked the Linksys site for firmware updates?
