Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Need a replacement for Linksys RT54GP2

My router needed a long vacation and needs to be replaced. Apparently Linksys no longer makes this model. Is there a replacement/upgrade that does what the old router did (ie, 4 outlets and 2 phone lines)? The important thing is the VoIP which must be compatible with Vonage. Wireless functionality would be nice, but isn't absolutely necessary.

Unfortunately, Linksys can't replace or upgrade your router. What you can do is just buy a new Linksys router. The model number WRTP54GP2 has all the VOIP functions that you need, plus it has wireless function, you can go online wirelessly using your laptop.

Linksys wrt54g Internet jack not working


Go to newegg.com. Find the model you want and click on it. Under "specifications" tab, they list the mfr page for the exact model you are looking at. That page will get you what you need. Also, you are running a "G" router- prices on "N" routers are so low, it may pay to just upgrade to an "N" router.

Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!

For you to be able to do that, you will need to set the SMC router to bridge mode, you will not be able to do that by yourself because only tech from your ISP have the capability of doing that since they have this tool that can operate on the router setting it to bridgemode. Basically, you will need to call your ISP to set the router to bridgemode and from there, you will be able to configure the linksys router.
Hope this information will help.

Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!

Frimware Upgrade


Apparently not, but I'm guessing you already knew that.
http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54G/download

Look carefully at the label and the firmware installed in your router. The 1.02.5 is listed for 5 and 6 only and version 8 is for 8 only. There is no 7 listed, so it was either a special run or there is just no firmware upgrade for it yet. It must have been perfect :-)
