Linksys wireless connection keeps getting dropped

We've got hardwired and wireless hooked connected to the router. The wireless connections keep getting dropped, it's quite frustrating.
Actually, it's 3 things connected, an ethernet and two routers, one for phone and one for internet.

    Linksys Ethernet EF4124 to Linksys Wireless WRT54GS. We also have a vonage router connected to the Ethernet EF4124.

    It is version 1.1.

    I have DHCP setup on the wireless router but not sure what it is for the DSL modem. I have to dig up the user/pass to find out.

    On the Linksys, next to the WRT54GS, there should be a version number. What is it?

    Do you have DHCP setup on your DSL modem or broadband router?

  • Mrunal Mody Nov 27, 2007

    This may help.

  • Mrunal Mody Nov 27, 2007

    Ya, you'll need to setup DHCP on the DSL router so that the wireless router receives a IP for it's WAN connection.

    Then, you'll need to setup an addressing scheme on the LAN side of the wireless router (DHCP). The key here is to make sure that each addressing scheme is different else each router will not know how to route back.

    This should be a start.

  • Mrunal Mody Nov 27, 2007

    If DHCP is ON on the DSL modem, you should setup the WAN connection as AUTO. But the key again is to make sure that the addressing scheme setup on DHCP of the Linksys is separate.

  • Mrunal Mody Nov 27, 2007

    Your DSL provider should know of a way that gives you access to the online setup of the DSL router.

I have a ZyXEL EQ-660R-F1 and a Linksys Wireless Router (B BEFW1154) that I'm trying to hook up. Can you tell me what I need to do?

Who is your ISP (internet service provider)? Anyway, it is possible to get your set up working. ZyXel is the DSL modem gateway and Linksys, your router/wifi. If you are able to get online by hooking up directly to the Zyxel, then it is possible to add the Linksys to the system.
Dont hook up the Zyxel to the Internet port of Linksys just yet. First you have to configure the Linksys by connecting your PC to it with a cable. Boot up the PC.
Open web browser and enter the address and hit enter. This is the default address of the Linksys. username = admin and no password. It is probably the same as the Zyxel which causes the conflict.
The first set up page may look something like this below.
Change the LAN IP address from to
Then click apply...From now on the Linksys IP address is
Now you can connect the Linksys internet port to the Zyxel. Reboot the Linksys and Zyxel.

Your PC should be on the internet after that. To check/setup wifi, you need to log back into the Linksys using the new adress x.x.2.1

Unable to connect to the internet using a linksys wireless adapter. Connects to the router but can't find the internet.

Isolate the issue by directly connecting the PC to the router via ethernet cable (if possible).

If you were able to get online while hardwired connected to the router, then check the IP address of the wireless network connection, check the wireless security if the network key matches.

If you cannot get online while hardwired to the router, then directly connect the computer to the modem.

If you were able to get online while directly connected to the modem, then the problem is the internet settings on the router. Check the WAN configuration, such as DHCP or PPPoE.

If you cannot get online when directly connected to the modem, then you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.
