    Hey guys, got some problems here. To start, I've got two PCs in my house. Ones in the back of the house, the other is in the front room. Its about a 30 foot or so length and ran off wireless. It has its own wireless network card, a linksys wireless G PCI adapter.

    Now, the back room is the internet hub, so to speak. Its got my game rig, the modem, and the router(a Linksys wireless G broadband router model # WRT54G). I've got the modem hooked up to the router and the router hooked up to my PC via cat5 cable. Again, the front PC is wireless and recently cant connect to the internet anymore. And so here I am.

    I call on you to help me, TPU. I want to re-build / remake the network. If anyone has any links to excellent sites that can help, I would be very appreciative. If anyone has any suggestions to help as well, that would be great!

    with the computer connected to the router go into the admin page http://192.168.1.1 go to the wireless settings..

    Name your network (SSID) so you know which one it is when the other machine picks it up. Make sure it is enabled. Save settings...


    go into your wireless security.. if you want to use something easy to remember for your network key Use WPA personale (10 digit) and use a phone number only you know for the passphrase. Save settings.

    Now you should be able to go to the computer in the front room and see the SSID network you have just created. Connect to it using the 10 digit phone number you've just configured. And that's it should work.
