Hello,

I even have experienced such kind of problem. To fix this problem all you have to do is to download a new firmware, which is an opensource firmware from DD-WRT it has much more features than the ordinary firmware and its much more stable.

Then after upgrading just make sure that you put the option for Keep Alive enabled and try and restart the router like once per day so that it does not clog up.

That will solve your problem. The DD-WRT website is www.dd-wrt.com

Have a good day.

Try to reset the router to factory settings and reconfigure it.. if it still hangs, you can go to linksys.com and download the latest firmware for that product.

How do i reconnect linksys


Oh man your going to have to help me out a little on this one. Do you mean you had to unhook it and connect directly to the modem and now you want to hook the router back up? If thats the case Unplug all the devices (Pc's modem and router) connect an Ethernet cable from the ethernet port on the back of the modem (not the linksys) to the internet ethernet port on the linksys (usually set a little apart from the rest) then connect all the computers to the routers ethernet ports (usually labeled 1-4) then turn on power to the devices starting with the modem, wait for it to completely boot up all the lights like they're supossed to look. Then turn on the router and wait for that to finish booting up then all of the computers. If you have wireless devices that will take a little more help.

Continuously lose connection


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.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware.

For the Firmware update go to :www.linksys.com
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Try to reset the router for 20 seconds. There's a reset button at the back of the router. Just press and hold it down for 20 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds, the plug it back in. Now try to reconnect to the Linksys wireless network.
