You may want to read this first:
http://homecommunity.cisco.com/t5/Wireless-Routers/WRT54G-Issues/m-p/240716?comm_cc=HSus&comm_lang=en#M126646

Otherwise you want to try a firmware update.

Here you can download the manual and the firmware here: http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G?referrer=www.linksysbycisco.com

Note that you need to know the hardware version of your router
wich is on the lower part of the router.

There is also a alternitive firmware for this type of router wich is
better than the firmware of Linksys itself.

Flash with mini build first when your router is still running the original linksys firmware, then afterwards flash with standard\vpn\voip builds.
Fill in your router type and download the desired firmware build:http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

Connect your router to your computer with a network cable.
Open your favorite web browser and goto http://192.168.1.1, this will
open teh web interface, fill in your user name and password, if left standard see manual, change the password after setting up your router.
Click at the tab Administration then click on firmware upgrade.
Click on Browse... to select the firmware file and click open.
When the firmware is sleceted click on Upgrade.
Now don't disconect the router from your computer and from it's power source, this will brick the router, when flashing completed succesfully, the screen comes up in your browser saying Upgrade is successfull.
Rebooting..., click on continue, now you can safely disconect everything after you settedup your router.

There must be a reset button where we can hard reset the router and you can try that or you can also try turning the router off and on after removing it from the electric plugs completely.

Other suggestions:
  • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

  • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console.
  • What to Do:
    • Check the location and distance of your wireless router.
      The further a device is from your wireless router, the weaker it's signal strength will be. If your wireless signal has to pass through any walls or floors, this will also weaken the wireless signal strength. Move the router to a central location within your home and as close to your system as possible.
      Additionally, if your router is on the floor, moving it to a higher location can improve the signal strength.

    • Change the wireless channel your router is broadcasting on.
      Wireless routers can broadcast on a variety of channels. Sometimes a specific wireless channel may experience interference from other devices and routers nearby. How to

    • Move any metal objects or electronic devices away from your Nintendo system and wireless router.
      Metal objects and electronic devices may interfere with wireless signals. If you have any of these, such as filing cabinets, speakers, power strips, glass, or cordless phones, next to your system or wireless router, move them away.

My D-link router (dir 615) saying is connected but have no internet access


Wired or wireless? Check all cables, have you tried to connect with a Ethernet cable to the ISP modem, if it connects, try connecting via the cable to the D-link. Work you way through the devices one by one.If it connects via the cable, it's the computer's wireless adapter. Will other computers connect? Or contact your ISP to verify the signal, have a tech come out to analyze the signal. It may be outside. It's happened before, to me.

What is the problem? Can not connect your PC to the router?

Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.
If you need more help post back! Thumbs and testimonial are welcome!

You can get a Linksys Access Point (WAP) to entend the signal.

Expanders do not work too well.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Bad connection. dropped internet when connected with mac wired or wireless


I'm not sure but it could be that the particular router has some hardware issues. I bought a Belkin wireless N router a few months back and i had the same problem. It only had a short range and kept cutting off in between. I exchanged it with a new router and voila!. it works fine.
And the other thing i've come to notice. At times having the router under the desk or at a corner might not give off enough to provide a connection within the adjacent room so I've had to place the router in a open and unobstructed place. So much for belkins super signalling.

Wi fi


You need to determine whether it's your router thats the problem, either overheating or signal lose because of where it's situated, or whether it's your wireless network card losing connection because of a faulty driver programme or the wireless hardware being faulty itself. If you are using the software that came with the wifi card, then try using windows zero wireless configuration instead.
