Hello everybody,

I need some help with my wireless network.
I have a Linksys WRT54G wireles router.
One computer is hard wired to it, the other 2 computer are on the wireless network.
In the past couple of days the wireless computer cannot find the network anymore, or if they find it, they cannot connect for some reason.
The computer that is hardwired still connects, but at times the connection drops, i simply unplug and re-plug power and the connection comes back to life

As far as I am aware, i didnt make any changes. I had the linksys box for about 2 years.
Is this a case of router failure?
Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot, short of buy a new box?

Thanks for the help.

Sounds to me more like the ISP failure in that they're dropping the signal. Most likely.
But dropped connections also often have to do with the ISP (or other) DNS servers being lost.

Do you use a software firewall that should have the ISP's DNS servers permitted, as well as DHCP from the WRT router?
