In any event, you would be far better served to use the newer Tomato firmware for your WRT54GS router. This was released in 09 and makes your router more compatible with Windows 7. It also makes the wireless networking on your older router work much better.

Thankyou Chae65 I will give that a shot and hope that works...could not get the firmware to download
GARY, BE CAREFUL USING ANY OUTSIDE FIRMWARE.
Follow this link to the Cisco support page for this router model.
Again, the issue is not with your router but with the laptop.
I suggest that you re-install the driver for your laptop's NIC/WIRELESS card.
Here is the Cisco support page for your particular router: Linksys by Cisco - WRT54GS Support

Also, are you knowledgable on how to access your router through your web browser?

No, none,
Just go to your device driver on the affected pc and go to device driver and look for the nic card and ask windows to search for the latest updates.

Limited Connectivity
I installed windows 7 32-bit RC on my PC yesterday and all is fine, except for my connection. Whenever I try to connect to my Wireless network, it says there is 'limited or no connectivity'. All my WEP settings are correct and the diagnostic said that the IP Config was wrong. What to do?

Limited Connectivity
100% of the time, I have limited connectivity for my wireless network. I have a Netgear WG311v3 wireless card in my Dell E510 desktop and a Netgear WGR614v6 router. I get a perfect connection with Windows XP but the limited connectivity in windows 7. Any Suggestion?
