Question about Linksys WRT54GX2 Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX200 (LS-WRT54G2)

1 Answer

Connection problem I have had my box for 2 years and now I can't connect using wireless.  I started to see the problem six months ago and it was off and on back then.  I could mess with the box and it would then work.  Now I can't even connect to it at all.  Is it the box?  I am on direct internet as I write this so that must be working.  I am not that computer smart, but I did try basic trouble shooting and am now out of ideas. Thanks for your help. Reynee

You can try to hard reset the router and update the firmware. Follow the steps below.

1. Download the latest firmware of the router from Linksys website. Save it on your computer.
2. Hard reset the router. Press the reset button at the back of the router for about 30 seconds, unplug the power for 20 seconds then plug it back in.
3. Connect your PC to port 1 of the router and access the router's setup page http://192.168.1.1 no username and admin for the password
4. Go to Administration tab > Firmware Upgrade sub tab.
5. Click Browse button and browse for the firmware file that you have downloaded from Linksys site. (.bin file extension)

After the upgrade, do a hard reset again. Repeat Step 2. Then you can reconfigure the wireless settings again.
Hope that helps.

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

OK, to clarify.
Ethernet = modem?
Wireless box = router?
Do you have hardwire connection to router?
Check the wireless settings in router with hardwire connection.
Most routers use random channel search for wireless.
I usually set this for to use one channel only.
Stops random interference and connections.
FYI: Most routers are on 2.4ghz - same as cordless phones and some hand radios - the frequencies over lap sometimes - even though they aren't supposed to.
Microwaves will also disrupt signals.

It is not wireless capable out of the box. However, it has 2 free PCI slots for an internal wireless card and several USB ports for a USB wireless adapter.

Using home phone causes comcast wireless internet to disconnect


Wireless internet runs at 2.4ghz. Your portable phone is probably also 2.4ghz and is knocking out your internet connection when in use. Look for an 800mhz or 5.8ghz phone as a replacement.

No wireless connection


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