How do I open the case

My WRT54GX2 has suffered from one of the antennas being pulled out. The only way to replace it is to open the case - I cannot find anywhere that the case separates. Help please

Re: How do I open the case

The screws are actually under the 4 little rubber pads on the back side. I have the same problem with one antenna's coming out.

Re: How do I open the case

--has this effected your internet services --aren't you able to access the wireless --if it is working fine then you dont have get it opened --because it has a security seal on it --and if the router is in warranty I would not recommend you to open it --because the screw to open the router is under this label.

Wrt54gx2 won't stay powered up

Has the AC jack been damaged in the Linksys, due to pulling of the cord? Try wiggling the plug at the rear of the linksys to verify the connection. Check, reseat ALL cables. If it's connected to the ISP modem, can you use a Ethernet cable on the Linksys to the computer to verify signal? It may be bad, hard to say for sure.

My WRT54GX2 router does not connect to the internet. Do I have to download software/firmware?

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.
