Turn off DHCP on your DSL modem... most DSL modems can double serve as a DHCP server too but in your case, since you already have a router, the router would be performing the task. Hence DHCP needs to be turned OFF on your DSL modem. Let me know if this works.

Speedo meter on the fiesta 2007 drops intermittently and comes back on. radio volume drops and car loses power slightly


Sounds like your alternator is trying to die out on you. Take it to the dealer to check the voltage that it's reading whenever the cars running, and when its not. Also, check the connector wires that connect to the alternator for bad spots. Or to see if the connectors are dirty. Hope this helps, James Booth

I have a linksys wrt54GX2 wireless G router and I would like to use it as an access point to pick up our internet signal from downstairs. The modem in use is wireless motorola SBG900. I have a desktop and...


With that particular model you wont be able to use it as a wireless bridge. You can however run an ethernet cable from the modem to any point in your house. the SBG900 i believe has wireless built into it, so you may need up with 2 wireless networks.

Hope that helps.

Hey guys could i use my router as a radio to pull the internet signal from a next router without using any cable


With the Linksys router it is not possible. You will need to connect the cable between the two routers. Linksys router will not pick up the wireless signal from the other wireless router.
May be it will work If you upgrade the DD-WRT Firmware. Not sure but it may. consult with the DD-WRT expert before upgrading the firmware.

Linksys WRT54G2 V1signal drops out once every 24 hrs


Download a free tool called Netstumbler (Netstumbler.com) and perform a wireless sniff for surrounding access points possibly generating a stronger signal and knocking yours out. If you find one any that have an SNR that is close or stronger (closer to 0) than yours then change your access point to a channel that is different from them but limit your choices to 1, 6 or 11.

Another possbility is a 2.4Ghz cordless phone killing your signal.

It connects but after a minute or more it resets itself


Possibly conflicting networks or devices sharing the same channel. I would "link" with the unit via RJ45 and change the frequency and channel to prevent any other interference.

Keep losing the signal. appears that the power


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I just upgraded from firmware version 1.01.14 to 1.01.22 and I have the same problem, the router just keeps resetting itself. I think the solution is to go back to the old firmware, but I haven't been able to find a copy yet, Once I find firmware version 1.01.14 for the WRT54GX2 router. I will let you know if this is the solution... :)
