To reset Linksys WRT54G. Press the Reset button (small rounded button , it will likely be gray or red and may be sunk inside the plastic casing of the router) with a pen or anything for 30 seconds , and after that then you unplug the power of your Linksys WRT54G and you keep holding down on the reset button for an additional 30 seconds, after that you plug it back in then you wait for another 30 seconds and then you're done.

Try a factory reset on the router, in most cases this can be done by holding the reset button on the unit down for 10 or more seconds. Once this is done you may have to enter any settings into the router again.

Also, try download the latest firmware from http://www.linksys.com and upgrade the firmware on the router.

If you're connecting to the router via wireless, try preventing windows from controlling the power of the wireless card on your computer.

Device manager > network adapters > "double-click your wireless adapter" > power management

then uncheck the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option

I hope this helps

How do I fix this unit? HAVE HAD this unit since


ei, configuring router settings is kinda diffcult for new users, in order to use your router,, you need to configure your tcp/ip setting of your network connections, and you must know the statis ip addresss of your router and manually used it in tcp\ip.. and you need t ontain the subnet mas and dns server setttings as well,,

No wireless connection


Try updating the firmware, if the problem still persist. The antenna of the router must be the problem.

HP laptop not recognizing Linksys Wireless B Security Key..


The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.
