Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRTP54G Router
I'm hoping someone has seen this before. I've had this router for 3 years and just recently i've been having the ethernet port dopping. No problems with the VoIP or wireless just the wired connections. I've tried different ports to see if the problem follows and it does. All 4 ports drop for 3 seconds then re-establish. This has been going on for the past few weeks but i haven't been concerned because it wasn't so bad then.. Just in the last 2 days, the 4 ports have been dead. I reboot the router and they work for a few hours, then they're out. No link lights on the 4 ports. Any ideas and thanks for your help and suggestions!
It almost sounds like a failing pc board in the router just old and dying could be firmware try updating , reboot the router before the firmware update you dont want it going out during that

I had a similar problem with the WRTP54G, after working great for almost 3 years the ethernet port started to fail intermitent and getting worst week after week. This is normally sign of hardware issue, so I opened my router and replace the 2 capacitors of the main power supply (1000uF x 16V), they were quite fat, indicating a leakage occured. After doing this, the ethernet ports came back to life perfectly!I hope this solution can help someone around the globe, as this router is very good and with less than U$0,50 you can fix it.Marcelo macedo.
