Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

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 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.

I used to have a simple cable modem (coax cable in, network cable out) connected to a separate Linksys wireless router, model WRT400N. This worked beatifully. To improve download speed, I recently...

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!

Wireless Network Connection is no longer connected

I've had this problem before. Simply power cycle the device (unplug it, wait 20 seconds, and plug it back in). If this starts happening often it may be nearing the end of this products lifecycle (you may need to replace it). I had mine for 3 years before I had to replace it.

For Serge : Over here one more question arise that why would I need router,when every thing available in DSL modem like Wireless connectivity,router and main feature is modem,so I can skip the linksys...

Depending on the make and model of your modem that you are referring to will determine if it has routing capabilities as well as wireless etc.

If so then getting another router that has wireless and other options is a bit pointless unless you are suffering from problems or you want to get it to replace it.

I did this myself ( replaced an old router that I got from my internet service provider ) due to the one they supplied being rubbish hence why I got / replaced there router with a netgear / or linksys one ( possibly draytek )

If the modem you refer to does the routing , wireless etc then yes you can get a switch ( however many ports you want ) and connect the router / modem to the internet and have one of the network ports ( the LAN one not the WAN one ) conencted to the switch and then connect all your other devices via the switch with network cables cat 5e or cat 6 ( cat 5e will suffice ) as there is no real need for cat 6 network cables ).

Am guessing the network cables will be UTP category.

If you post back with make and model of your modem - you or anyone else on here should be able to find out if it has the capabilities you mention - which I am guessing is correct otherwise you wouldnt of mentioned it.

The only other reason for maybe swapping the current modem for a linksys or other make of router would be because you wanted a faster wireless connection and if your current modem only supports wireless G and you wanted N then you would either get a new router as you suggested or just get a Pre N wireless access point and disable the wireless on your current modem / router and just use the wireless access point for wireless.
