    Ok, what kind of router do you have? Please check the manufacturer's name, model, and firmware revision on the bottom, or back of the unit.



    Question have you had any power outages? Is there anything on top of the router. I have had in the past that my Linksys, had heat issues, esp if something was placed on top of the unit. It would be powered, but loose the network constantly.



    Just for a tip check those things first. Also you stated that it ws not working, is that not powering up, or powered up, but no internet? Please let me know about this, before I can continue.

TekFred is right - more information is needed to address the issue in detail.

A rule of thumb that generally works when using a router to share multiple computers: if it stops working due to power outages or something simple like that, unplug both the modem (the box going out to the Internet) and the router. Wait one minute. Power up your modem again and wait another minute. Then plug in the router. If that doesn't work, we can keep moving on other ideas.

If you happen to have a modem/router as a single unit, obviously this won't fix the issue.

Ok my nat type is strict and i am trying to change to open


You want the NAT open for X-box ?

For X-box you will need to open some ports on the router.

Also you will need to reduce down the MTU on the router to 1365.
That will work.
for this you will need to open the router set up.

Linksys wrt54gs won't work


Your router might need a restart to begin communicating with the modem again. Remove power from the router, wait a few seconds, then turn the power back on.

Not letting me on the ip address to set up


You may be able to verify the router's address by checking the Default Gateway setting on your computer. For example, at the Windows command prompt, type "ipconfig" to display your current ip address settings...including the gateway (router) address.
