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

1 Answer

My router keeps disconnecting the internet

I have a WRT54GX2 SRX200 wireless router. The lights, especially the power and internet lights, keep blinking on and off every minute or so. I keep getting connected and then disconnected to the internet. How do I solve this problem? I called linksys a few times but they weren't able to help me..
And I know it's not the modem because I can directly connect the labtop or desktop to the internet and there's no problem.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

A blinking power light suggest that the device is already broken. Go to the command prompt and ping the roouter. If you can still ping it then i suggest to upgrade the firmware of your router.

Hello nanpw,
To reset your router to factory, take a paper clip and press the reset button. Hold it for about 30 seconds or until the lights on the router flash. open a web browser and type username is (blank) password is admin then run the wireless setup utility, after your laptop is connected its always a good idea to include security.

Did you try plugging it in to a different power outlet? If there is no power light on your router still after trying a different power outlet, this means that the router has gone bad .

My devices keep losing connection with the router due to loss of power in the router.

Connect the router to a UPS to prevent temporary loss of power issues. Any electronics store will carry a UPS that won't cost you a lot.

My SRX200 consistently disconnects from the internet.


the wall plug type power supply (made in China) may be likely bad.
This actually is a switch mode power supply very unlike the old and usual linear power supplies.
It is common the capacitors used in this supply are under rated and do not last very long. Then funny and intermittent stuff can happen.

The problem usually seen with dim LED lights on the unit, limited range and intermittent operation.

Try to find a replacement power supply with perhaps higher current rating.

Good luck

Any update for l2pt protocol

Hi Milian,

Currently WRT54GX2 does not have support for L2TP connection. You may try to use WRT54GS. It has an option for L2TP connection.

Hope this helps
