I bought a brand new Linksys 2.4 GHz 802.11g router a few weeks ago and it has been running slower then my old b router.  Model # WRK54G.   When I first got it I tried calling there helpless desk and they barely had a firmware update for me.  I updated the firmware and it is still having this problem.  I have tried everything I know to do.  The only other thing I can think of to fix this is to break out the good old Hammer and get medieval on it.  Please help.

Well it is dropping signal every now and then when connected to a vary secure VPN.  it is 98% signal strength and I am getting a strong 54 Mbps.  this is strange I have read form after form today about other people having this problem but it does not look like there is a good solution out there for it.  It should have no problem connecting to a VPN and holding that connection open.  anyone please help me on this.

Ok after doing extensive test on the system I have found that then main problem is that the signal will drop off one sec and then jumps back up to 75% or even 100% it does this at random.  What do I do to fix this?

let me make it more clear Wi-Fi works in the 2.4GHz range and may receive interference from cordless digital phones and microwave ovens so ensure that your AP is situated away from these devices. If you still encounter problems then try switching the channel used by your network. You can also increase the number of AP or add an antenna to improve the signal reception. Wireless range is approximately 50m indoors and 250m outdoors so be sure to place your AP where it will cover the area you will be using. Radio coverage extends through two or three wooden floors, or one concrete floor. I hope you get the idea
