Connection constantly discconects when watching videos online

I've been having troubles with my Linksys WRT54GS v2.1 router. Whenever I stream videos such as on Youtube, my connection drops everytime. My connection usually does not drop any other time unless I am watching videos. I have already looked around for help but I still haven't found any answers. I hope you guys can help me. My firmware is the latest on the Linksys website for my router (4.71.1).

My Linksys wireless router shows connection but there is no online access

Check the settings of the router.
Who is your internet service provider ?
First check that your computer is able to go online when connected directly to the modem.
if you are online through the modem then you will need to set up your router.

I have a linksys WRT54GS router, every couple of : v7.50.2

I have the same router and had the same problem. I replaced the power supply and then put the unit on a UPS battery. Now it never goes down.

I have found that it 'gets clogged' .. I mean that the buffers dont get cleared if I do a lot of inbound video streaming. I can still make it hang by doing that, but the reboots have stopped since the UPS.

Playstation 3 disconnecting from wireless gaming

Linksys loves to ship their routers with out-dated firmware. If you haven't updated the firmware of your router, that would be the first thing I'd do. From what I've read about routers and PS3, a lot of routers had trouble when they came out but had firmware updates to resolve the problem.

You'll need to go to the below link and select your version to get firmware downloads specific to your Model router and version number. The version number is listed on the bottom of your router next to the model.

Be sure to read up on how to update the firmware and be sure you only update the firmware from a computer connected via WIRED connection to the router. Doing it wirelessly will cause disconnection from the router mid update and will cause your router to become a paper-weight!

The above link is a good website to find out a lot of information about Linksys routers and how to secure/update/configure them.

Wii connection issues.

You can check if the problem is with the internet connection going to the Wii or just the wireless connection.

When you loose connection, check the Wii's ip address. If it does not have an ip address(or ip is 169.xx.xx.xx) that means that the Wii is disconnecting from the wireless network. You can then try other wireless channels on your router.

If the Wii is still getting an ip of 192.168.x.x, that means that the problem is the internet from the router. You might need to forward ports on the router for your Wii.

If you mean by the roadrunner that you are connect via a cable, the reason why the signal may fail and stop you from watching streamed video is that wireless is only 54mbps and not the best speed for streaming, but wired streams at 100mbps and is constant speed whereas wireless doesnt give a constant true speed of 54mbps it can reduce considerably.
