Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Linksys WRT54GS router needs to be rebooted frequently

My 4 year old Linksys WRT54GS all of sudden quit connecting to the internet. Rebooting by disconnecting the power temporarily restores connectivity, but only for a few hours. Is it dying or has some setting been corrupted?

Try to leave of air for an hour, untill its cold, then reconect it, if the time untill it quit conecting is consitrly longer, your Linksys is dying.

Router not connecting


The problem here is that the WRT54GS is an old model, so naturally the installation CD is also old. This is especially a problem if you are running Vista. I ran into the same problem when I was installing my wireless card; my computer would detect it on boot up, but when I installed the drivers from the CD, it said the card wasn't plugged in.

The solution would be to download the lastest installation and driver files from the LinkSys website and use those instead of the installation CD that came with it. You may have to hunt for it, as some companies would rather push new products than update older ones, but since the router is still on the market, they should have the updated drivers and installation files.

My router is still working, but can't connect to the internet


So you've done everything I've suggested already - and yup, it's definitely the router. 
As I mentioned before, the DSL modem may well be quite fussy about the MAC address it sees, so if it's been successfully working with your PC, it might need 'refreshing' (normally done with a reboot) to get it to work with the router.
I'm running out of suggestions - would it cause any problems to carry out a factory reset on the Linksys router, and installing the latest firmware? Or even, perhaps try one of the many alternative firmwares that are available (I'm using DD-WRT - http://www.dd-wrt.com) and see if that works any better?
I've carried out all kinds of reconfigurations with my two WRT-54Gs, and they're quite resilient to being played about with... I really hope some of my suggestions help you get it talking to the internet again!

How do i connect and get signal?


This is a common problem with Linksys wireless routers and primarily the WRT54G and WRT54GS. For some odd reason they all of a sudden go stupid and forgetful.

The easiest method to revive these routers is to go to the Linksys web site and get the automatic configuration download for your specific model of wireless router.

Hope this helps you

Internet Light Stays Red on WAG54GS Wireless Router


If your router's internet light is red it means to say that there's no connection. You really have to call Tesco.
