Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
My wireless laptop will lose internet connectivity after a period of no activity. Connectivity is restored by cycling power on the router. The same thing occasionally happens with the wired computer, but far less frequently. It's a real pain in the @$$ having to run down and reset the thing every time I want to connect. Any ideas?
That can be a sign that the router is going out. Try updating the firmware and see if this helps. Sometimes it is on your providers end but they will always tell you to replace the router first.
You will also have to check your cabling as that will be one of the things they suggest you do.
I would go to Walmart and get another cheap Linksys router and setup it up and if it still does it call your provider. You can always take it back and get a refund or save it for when your router does go out.

Tips for a great answer:

Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
