Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Loses connection constantly

Rocker, I have a WRT 54GS router on a DSL link at home. I've got a wired desktop and two laptops all running XP. My problem is that the router loses connection to the Internet every 15-30 minutes requiring me to recycle power to reestablish communication with the Bellsouth network. It is a series 6 machine and I've loaded the latest firmware. No effect. I'm ready to toss it into the weeds. Any ideas? I've seen on various blogs that this router exhibits this symptom frequently.

Thanks, Tony

Ok, I;ve been having the same problem as you and I just had it solved. Make sure that it isn't on bellsouth's end and make sure the modem is running correctly. It should most defenately not be the router. Call them for support.

Have you tried plugging it into each of the four ports? If so I would agree the unit has died. If you don't want to let go you could check to see if a fimware update is available and see if that resets it.

Cannot Network printers on FIOS system


If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

My router is still working, but can't connect to the internet


So you've done everything I've suggested already - and yup, it's definitely the router. 
As I mentioned before, the DSL modem may well be quite fussy about the MAC address it sees, so if it's been successfully working with your PC, it might need 'refreshing' (normally done with a reboot) to get it to work with the router.
I'm running out of suggestions - would it cause any problems to carry out a factory reset on the Linksys router, and installing the latest firmware? Or even, perhaps try one of the many alternative firmwares that are available (I'm using DD-WRT - http://www.dd-wrt.com) and see if that works any better?
I've carried out all kinds of reconfigurations with my two WRT-54Gs, and they're quite resilient to being played about with... I really hope some of my suggestions help you get it talking to the internet again!

My laptop can't find my wireless router


the best would be trying to upgrading your router to a new firmware like tomato or dd-wrt which has much better features and your wireless device would start working.

www.dd-wrt.com that is the one i use and its fantastic.
