I have a 2Wire 1070 Gateway that's connected to a Linksys WRT54GS and have...

2 Laptops and a Nintendo Wii connected by Wi-Fi
1 Desktop connected by LAN cable

it was all perfect.. until 3 weeks ago
i first started to noticed that the downloads i made with Firefox on one of the laptops suddenly stopped, i thought it was normal cause it had a low signal

but then i noticed the same stuff on the desktop PC
and now..
some You Tubes video don't load at 100% and ALWAYS stop at the exact time on all the computers AND the Wii
(for example this one)

last..
my Wii can't be updated -__-
the update always stops in the same point and i get error 32004

What the... happened to my connection, i would love some help please
thanks

Did you have a power outage about the time the problem occurred? From what I find the 2Wire has a built in router. If this is the case you will have to set the Linksys in bridged mode to allow the 2Wire to perform as a router and limit the Linksys to be a Wireless Access Point, and not a router.
have you tried re-running the Linksys setup software.

Here is a Linksys help article that describes how to "Cascade" two routers. It refers to two Linksys but just apply these settings to your Linksys should do.
