Try to do a complete network power cycle.
IF it doesn't work hard reset the router
Ensure that you have all the configuration details regards to your internet service
Once after resetting it please reconfigure the router.
Hope this works

Well, I want to know what you mean by "lag". If you think that your lag is caused by your router, try running a traceroute.
Open a "cmd" window and type the command
tracert 8.8.8.8
You will see output like this:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002] Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
C:\Users\njs>tracert 8.8.8.8
Tracing route to google-public-dns-a.google.com [8.8.8.8] over a maximum of 30 hops:

Trace complete.
C:\Users\njs>
Now what this does is steps through the internet, timing how long it takes you to get to each step. My first step is my local wi-fi router, it should take under 5 milliseconds. Next step (for me) is the default router at the ISP. That 10 milliseconds is typical. The next jump, hop 5, is where my data leaves my ISP to go to level3, one of the big backbones. Google connects straight to Level3, and end-to-end it is 26 milliseconds, pretty good. (8.8.8.8 is a public google nameserver, easy to remember and fast to type).
So if you have numbers like those from your traceroute, then, well, your lag is not network based.
I have seen laptops get riddled with spyware and then they became slow. I have even seen them slow the network connection because they were so hagridden that they were slowing down because they were doing nothing but forwarding connections for hackers and sending spam - one for three spammer outfits. Run a scan for spyware and for viruses.
Now if your lag is web based, well, you might try installing Google's Chrome browser. I like it a lot. It seems faster to me than IE. Also, look at your disk light. It you try to browse somewhere and you get a long lag with the disk light on, you might be a little overloaded on background stuff. There might be things in your tray you do not need. Kill as many as you can and see if the problem goes away. Good luck.

The only computer I have is a Dell Insprion E1505 laptop and it is connected to a "COMCAST" cable modem. Windows XP, not Vista is installed. I purchased a LINKSYS WRT54G wireless router. I installed the setup disk and connected the modem to the router, and the router to the computer as step one, but when step two had me disconnect the router from the laptop so it could connect via wireless network, it just says "easylink advisor could not establish a wireless connection with the router
two laptops, a desktop PC and my son has Xbox live. I recently bought the Linksys wireless-g router with speed boost and that didn't work. If any of the laptops were on, the other wouldn't work and my son's Xbox live would lag. I was thinking about exchanging it for the Linsys wireless-N broadband router but then I read the reviews and they were horrible. I need something of that sort but something that isn't known for being unreliable and dying.
I bought the Turtle Beach X41 Headset, and it is causing some problems with my wireless connection. Due to a number of reasons, it is not possible to directly hook up my 360 to my modem. So, if I bought a new router that can operate on a 802.11a frequency, would that help or not? My current router is a Linksys Wireless G, 2.4GHz, router. Microsoft has said that an 802.11a frequency router could fix problems with other wireless electronics. If it would help, which router should I buy? I've read a few reviews for the Linksys WGA54AG 802.11a, and everyone says it doesn't work good. Any suggestions on another brand
i tink with these you can do some thing

TWO PS3 ON A LINKSYS WRT54G


Log into your router, type routerlogin.net in your PCs web browser and configure a static IP for each of them. Also if your using wire-less its probably better to have at least one wired, both if you can. I've played my ps3 on a wireless-N router that was about three feet away and I lagging while playing killzone 2.

Linksys router problem


Try a factory reset on the router, in most cases this can be done by holding the reset button on the unit down for 10 or more seconds. Once this is done you may have to enter any settings into the router again.

Also, try download the latest firmware from http://www.linksys.com and upgrade the firmware on the router.
