Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have installed my wireless router, set security settings, entered the encryption key, and then I'm able to wirelessly connect to the internet (via laptop) for approximately 1-3 days. Then, the wireless internet access is lost. When I go into the Easy Link Advisor and check my settings, the SSID has changed, the security settings are gone, and the encryption key shows a new set of numbers/letters. Why is the SSID changing on its own? To troubleshoot this, I have entered my IP address in the web browser and changed my SSID back to the correct name; however, nothing seems to fix the problem.
Thank you for the helpful advice. My previous router (same model) was struck by lightening, and I replaced it with this one. However, I never had this problem with the prior router. I have called Linksys tech support number several times and was disconnected and then left on hold for a ridiculous amount of time. I like the idea of asking for a replacement since I have my receipt and original box. Thanks again!

Tips for a great answer:
THIS IS A SUPER QUICK AND EASY FIX!
Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
