Question about Linksys Wireless-G RVS4000 Router
from time to time internet light goes red and i have to turn the router off and on again to recover connection.
pther lights remain green. is this a sign of a failing router
Try updating the firmware of your router. You may download the firmware at www.linksys.com/download . Once downloaded, upload it on the inteface of your router. Once done, do a hard reset on the router. Press and hold the reset button for about 30 - 60 seconds. Also lower down the MTU of the router. Try setting it to 1492.
Please let me know.

Hi, well it may be, but it indeed just sounds pretty normal to me ... lol unless it is doing it very frequently?
I would tend to think that it is fairly normal to "Drop Off", "Hang Up" etc say a few times a month, anything else, may indicate a problem.
Also try disabling Windows XP Service zeroconfiguration wifi this often causes this type of thing sometimes.

I understand that you are not able to connect to internet through DG834Gv5 as the internet light on the router is RED. I would suggest you to reset and reconfigure the router using the below steps:
1. Press and hold the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons simultaneously until the Power LED turns red (about 6 seconds).
2. Release the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons. The LED blinks red three times and then turn green when the router has reset to the factory default state. Wait for the router to reboot.
1. Connect the cable/phone line coming from Internet Service Provider to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.
3. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
4. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
5. Login to the router (username = admin password = password unless you have changed it).
6. Click on 'Setup Wizard' at the top of list from the left menu.
7. Select Yes and click Next.
8. It should give you 'PPPoA Detected' and then click on next.
9. Enter the login and password of the ISP and then click on Apply.
10. Once the settings are updated click on 'Router Status' and click on 'Connection Status' button (at the bottom of the page).
11. Click on Connect button.
12. Connecting to server should show 'Connected'.
13. If you receive 'CHAP authentication failed', close the 'Connection status' window and click on 'Basic settings'. Verify the login and password for ISP and apply the setting again.
14. Open up another browser window and try to access internet.
