Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Linksys SRX200 router that has problems with the wireless. A wired connection works fine (and connects through my satellite to the Internet). However, the wireless connection is undetected by any of my notebook PCs (several different machines). Once in a while, the wireless seems to come up, but it only stays up for a minute or two and then goes back down. I've rebooted the router to factory defaults, but that didn't help any.


Answers :

Yes, it did work before. In fact, it was working during the day, but then when I tried to use it in the evening it started failing. I tried talking with someone at Linksys, to no avail. Although I did say it had been working, he didn't seem to get that. The idea that it might be the antennas seems much more reasonable that the solutions he was suggesting (which included trying various things on the laptops that used to work with it).

I needed to have something working, so I ended up purchasing a different router for now. Perhaps at some point I can try switching it to the G setting (although one of my PCs only has a B card). For now, I'll use the new router, which works fine.
Did it work before? There may be a problem with the antennas, and is there any difference changing the band from B to G?

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
