Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

My Linksys seems to have an expiration date.

I have had this router for several years and just within the last two weeks the internet connection disappears and I have to reinstall the disc. It works find for a while and then the connection disappears again. I have just noticed on the status page after I reinstall, I had a duration line that was counting down from 5 days. It is now at 1 day. What is setting an expiration date and how do I fix it.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Can't connect to internet


When you recieved the microsoft update it might have changed the drivers of the adapter in your computer. If that is the case you need to reinstall the drivers of the adapter so that it can connect to your router again. You need to identify the brand and model of your adapter to do that.

Hi, I have a linksys WRH54G model. For the last couple of days, whenever I connect my laptop using wireless connection, the router shuts down and restarts after several seconds. I can use the router...


The first thing I would try is checking the firmware on the router. You can do this by interfacing with the router from a hardwired computer. The router should have a link on its interface (through your internet browser ex. internet explorer) asking to check for a firmware update. Run the utility from the router. Once it is complete, check to see if you can surf the net. I suggest using www.foxnews.com or www.bbc.com so you are sure you are pulling up a fresh page as they are dated. Also you can check the following link for information reguarding the firmware avalible for your router:

http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1175238795209&packedargs=sku%3D1175238794052&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=9520994052B03&displaypage=download

If you are not sure how to interface with your router, update the question and I can give you step by step instructions.

If you do perform a firmware update and the system keeps bumping when you try to connect wirelessly, check for other networks that show up on your laptop. If you see a lot, interface with your router and change the frequency to something on the high end or the low end. If it continues, then there is possibility that the radio in the router is malfunctioning and you will have to replace the router. Now my personal disclaimer: anytime you flash the firmware on anything you run the risk of killing the system perminately. Although it is VERY rare since the companies have done a good job making these fairly fail safe, it does happen. In my 8 years of experience I have never had this happen to me when updating a router, however there is a possibility.
