Hello
I have several computers in my household. Several are hard wired and a few are wireless. I have a linksys WRT54G V8 wireless G router with a built in 4 port switch. Almost everyday the signal is lost and I need to unplug the router to reset it. This goes for the wired computers as well. Can someone walk me throuh the checklist so that I know everything is the way it should be? My main computer sits about 5 feet from the router and it is running Vista premium. Someone mentioned that windows and the router may not be "sinked" correctly. The router has the latest drivers istalled.

Thanks
Tom

Update:
I called or actually I had an online chat with support. I upgraded to the latest driver for my router. He says this will fix it. Now it is wait and see. I must say that the support went really well, just don't know if it's corrected

I would like to third that i sat on the phone once with linksys support for about an hour and a half and they didn't get impatient or aggravated with me at all.

If it was me i would be a little ticked with the customer haha.

I hope it works good luck
