Hi,

I am facing problems with the Linksys wireless router at my home:

 o I have to reboot the router every time I need my laptop to recognize
the  wireless network.

 o Sometimes even when my IBM laptop shows full network connectivity,
I dont see any packets being exchanged over the connection and
everything seems to come to standstill, reboot of the router is the
only solution.

Wondering if I need a firmware upgrade on the box... I am not sure how
to check existing firmware version on the router.

Any help is greatly appreciated...

Thanks!

Thanks Eric,

The current version is "1.45.3, Jul 1 2003".

Anyways, I think I posted the mail to this group by mistake. I intented
to send the mail to alt.internet.wireless.

I recently had this problem and found that the default channel was set
to 10 (my attempt to minimize interference created by mobile phone).  I
set the default channel to 7 and it now works every time.
