Linksys wireless problems

I have a Linksys wireless router, 1 Desktop hardwired and 1 Desktop wirless. When the wireless is connected the wired loses connection and vice-versa. I have assinged IP addresses to each hoping to solve the problem, but it doesn't. Please Help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Had a similar Linksys experience. Turned on the wireless router and 60 some users were disconnected. Our IPs were also manually entered. Since these were customer connections and we’re a 24×365 shop, I haven’t been able to devise a test that I dare run yet. With Mikem’s indication, my thought of putting wireless on it’s own network might not work.

    I had a similar problem at a customer's site. Try changing the RTS Threshold value. "This is normally caused with a signal problem or the RTS Threshold being too high. Please try changing the channel of your Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router to 1, 6, or 11. Please consult your Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router?s documentation for more information. *Note: Channels 1, 6 and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels within the 2.4GHz frequency range; the other channels will offer negligible improvement. If changing the channel does not help, try lowering the RTS Threshold to 2304 on your Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router. Please consult your Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router?s documentation for more information."

    The problem is with your signal going to the cable or wire. Check with your ISP to find out if they are having a problem or not. You should also check from where the wire comes into your residence. It could have a short since it is wired to there.

    Mikem: You mentioned that you have "Assigned" IP addresses? I assume your "Connection" refers to an Internet connection via cable Modem, etc.? I also assume your Wireless device is a Router as well? If so, then it's important to understand that in this configuration, the ISP will assign an IP address to the WAN side of the Wireless Router. The router should then provide private(192.168.x.x) IP addresses to your wireless or wired devices. In order for this to work, the Router must be allowed to "Provide" IP addresses to your devices via DHCP. Your devices must also be configured to accept IP addresses via DHCP. Your internal devices communicate to the router via DHCP-assigned addresses. The Router will then translate(Spoof or NAT) the ISP into believing that the traffic is all comming from a single IP address(the one assigned to the WAN side of the router by the ISP).
