Question about Linksys WRT54GX4 WIRELESS 802.11G BROADBAND ROUTER WITH SRX400 (WRT54G4)

1 Answer

Linksys WRT54GX4 loses internet connection

Connection is lost randomly, sometimes every couple minutes. In “View Networks”, my linksys unsecured wireless network shows to be at full strength. There is another network that is sometimes found with WPA security enabled that has a weak signal. Sometimes pressing “Repair” will work to reconnect, but usually I have to unplug the Linksys router and then repair to re-establish the connection. Very irritating to do every couple minutes.
When I first got the router I had the same problem and after 2 hours on the phone with support we go it fixed. I had to reset the router and the problem started again. Linksys will not support their product any longer. I remember we disabled something in Windows so the Linksys could control the router (Or maybe it was the other way around), but I can’t remember how we solved the problem. I’ve tried changing my IP address, but no use. Still have the problem.

Not a problem, you have to consider maybe other devices and or networks competing/interferring with your network. If you know how to enter the Linksys router menu I would 1. change the frequency the router operates on 2. change the channel the router will use 3. change the default password to something else besides the default.

All of the settings for your router out of the box are at default, wonder how many other people are running the same thing in your neighborhood? I always change from the default, you may also be receiving interference from devices using the same freq/channel as your router. Changing these will eliminate those possibilities.

Don't forget to encrypt your network, that is most important.

Linksys WRT54GX4 - SRX 400 Router Internet Connectivity Issues


I had a similar issue a while back and found that sometimes modems are finicky with the MTU settings. I had to throttle mine down about 20 points to get it to stay connected. Check with your provider. Their Tech Support should be able to tell you if there is an alternate MTU setting at work here.

Cheers,
Ron

System can not setup wireless connection to the router


If you are running Windows XP sometimes your linksys software and Windows software conflict and makes connecting to wireless network difficult. Check to see if the linksys software is telling you there is another software used to connect to wireless networks, if so then one needs to be stopped. Also if your drivers are loaded correctly you can see a icon in the taskbar looks like a PC with a red x. Right click it and click view available wireless networks and see if it pick yours up. If all else fails uninstall all drivers and redo from scratch. Sometimes that is the quickest fix.

Hope that helps,

How to get rid of old "unsecured" wireless network


SLRUSS63,

Are you referring to the Linksys SSID showing up when you browse for available wireless networks? Also, are you in an apartment building or otherwise relatively close to other houses/residents? It is possible that you and a neighbor both have Linksys APs and if neither was secured originally, your neighbor could have been connecting to your AP and vice versa. This definitely would explain slowness especially if you or your neighbor does any type of video or audio streaming.

One way to test this is to shutoff your Linksys router and view available wireless networks on your computer. If "Linksys" still shows up, it is most likely someone else's router/AP.

As long as your SSID shows up and you can only connect to it via the WEP key, your AP is secure.

Let me know if you get different results than I explained above.

Linksys Router Installation Model Number WRT54GX4 with SRX


Booba,
With your question about the internet type you are right to set it to DHCP. And For the password you are also right. Now for the ssid that will be the name that your router will be broadcasting. If you can get your computer online through port no.1 on the router that only means that the router is already configured properly for internet connection. Now since the wireless is not working its possible that its not connected yet to the wireless network that you have set up where you were running the setup cd. Do you know how to view the available networks on your wireless computer? If you kindly provide me with the operating system of your computer that will go wireless on your network and also the model no. or the brand of the wireless adapter on it.
