Cannot connect to wireless network from my mobile

I have a Linksys WRH54G which I have been using for about and year now. Everything was working perfectly when today, for no apparent reason my mobile phone stopped connecting to the wireless network. Yes, I know there could be some problem with my phone but I want your help to make sure that my router is not at fault. I have reset the router and setup everything from scratch. That did not help.

Re: Cannot connect to wireless network from my mobile

When you say mobile phone, do you mean cell/smart phone?  If so, on the cell phone, try forgetting your network, and start over configuring the the cell phone for your wireless network.  The settings on the phone might be screwed up, as often happens when you make several tries at configuring something, so starting over can sometimes help solve this kind of problem.

Smartphone - LG Optimus Black. I've already done that several times now. Did not help.

Re: Cannot connect to wireless network from my mobile

 

As you have mentioned that your Smart Phone was connecting to the Wireless Network at your place and it stopped working for no reason whatsoever....That thing seems to be just unusual....For that very reason i believe, what simply you should have tried is, changing the name of your wireless network to something different to what you were connecting with, as your Smart phone may or may not connect to the same name any more....

 

Also, check out whether Internet is actually working on your Router or not....then you have already mentioned that you did reset and re-configured your router....so changing the name of your wireless network should sort this out....If it continues then try changing the wireless channel on your router to something else and that should help your cause.....

Now what's happening is that my phone shows the wirless network, but as soon as I enter my password and hit connect, the network changes to 'Not in range'.

Try to connect another working device the same time you try with your LG. If the other device works perfect with no drop outs then it might be a problem with your Phones Radio. Fixing such would require S-off and flashing to the latest radio from your operator, or simply have it replaced from where you bought it.

 

Is the LG working ok connecting to networks other than with the WRH54G?

Even my mom's Nokia doesn't pick up the wifi signal. That is how I determined that the problem is with my router and not my phone. And yes, my LG is connecting to other wifi networks without any issues.

Remove the security of the router temporarily and try connecting. Try to also switch channels and check if it makes a difference.

Re: Cannot connect to wireless network from my mobile

On removing the security my phone detected the wifi network, but when I hit the connect option nothing happened. I hit connect once or twice and then, the same thing, the wifi network changed to 'not in range'.
