Unbrick router e2500

If you installed dd-wrt for your new router firmware it's possible you installed the wrong firmware. In most cases, it's permanently bricked. If not, you can try the 30/30/30 method to reset the router to its original factory settings. That is
1. Unplug the router and press the reset button for 30 secs
2 plug in the router and press the reset button for 30 secs
3 unplug the router again and press the reset button for 30 secs

During the entire process keep the reset button depressed. It takes some good hand coordination. 20/20/20 always worked for me for all the linksys routers I've owned over the years.

How can i make it so that I can wacth movies on netflix it does not streamline it has to constanly buffer the movies

Streaming video , stopping and buffering is due to slow connection speed. HD movies involve loading a lot of data and hence take a lot of time to buffer. Switch to non-HD video mode and see if it streams without pauses. If that does not fully resolve the problem , you will need to go for a faster internet connection.

I am wanting to reset my username on my linksys wrt54g wireless router and am not sure how to do it. I understand that I need to push a paperclip in the back of the router but what do I need to do with...

If you are resetting because you forgot the username and want to reset the router to factory defaults(you would have to reconfigure your router completely), you should use a 30-30-30 reset. This is done buy holding the reset button for 30 seconds, while still holding the reset button unplug the power cord for 30 sec, while still holding the reset button plug the power back and keep holding for another 30 sec. In short you hold the reset button for a total of 90 sec and have the unit unplugged in the middle of that time for 30 secs. Or you can simply try holding the reset button for 30 sec and see if the defaults (admin) are now working or not. As for the computer, it does not have to be off, I actually prefer keeping it on because you can test the router connection right away.

Please advice me as soon as uyou can ..thx

Start troubleshooting the problem by checking the physical layer (Plugs, Jacks, Cables). Replace them with known working equipment.

Once you have traced the line from your Cisco to each other end (through to ISP, and to network switch), then reset your error counters, by restarting the cisco.

Check the ethernet interfaces on the network switch and the Cisco. Make sure they are both set to Autonegotiate or both set to the same settings like 100mbs Full-duplex. If they are not communicating the same way lots of errors will be generated.
