Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

I get slow downloading and time outs with my WRT54G v5. I reboot the router only and it works fine for a period of time and then slows down again. My computer says the signal strength is excellent.

Enabling MTU on the router
Step 1:
Determine the proper MTU size for your ISP. If you do not know the proper MTU size, click here. By default, MTU size for Cable ISPs is 1500 and 1492 for DSL.


Step 2:
Open a web browser I get slow downloading and - 3733-003.jpg such as Internet Explorer.

Step 3:
Go to the "Address" bar and enter your router's IP Address (192.168.1.1 is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press the [Enter] key.

Step 4:
A new window will prompt for a "User name" and "Password." Leave the "User name" space blank, type in your router's password (admin is the default password), then click OK.


Note:
If the password window did not appear, click here.
If the router is not accepting the password, click here.


Step 5:
When the router's web-based setup page appears, set MTU to Manual. For Size enter the MTU value that you obtained in the previous procedure.

Step 6:
Click on 3695-017.png.

Note: If the procedure does not work, verify if the connection drops even when computer is connected directly to modem. If the connection is stable when connected to the modem, update the firmware on the router. For instructions on how to update the router's firmware, click here.

Hi, I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, and every time I want to connect with my WIFI the router reboots. This issue only happens with my Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, other phones and devices work just fine....


Hello,

Just had same problems with my brand new Xperia Mini Pro and old WRT54G ver 5. Every time I connected with WiFi the router restarted (once it returned to factory settings). I updated the router firmware to latest version (1.00.6 to 1.02.8) and after this it works fine.

Best Regards

Slow connection, how do I fix it?


Reduce the MTU settings on the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router. On the set up page , you will find the MTU set to Auto. Change it to manual and change the size to 1400. save the settings.
Also upgrade the firmware of the router.
Do you have any computer connected to the router ? If not then connect the computer to the router. download the firmware of the router.
Upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware , you will need to reset the router.
Once you reset the router, it will lose all the settings and you will need to reconfigure the router.

Cannot connect with ATT modem


Connect your pc to the ATT box. If online, check the ip address of the computer. If the ip address is 192.168.1.x, then you just have to change the router ip address. The wrt54g ip is 192.168.1.1, it may be having conflict with the ATT modem. Change the wrt54g ip to 192.168.2.1

Good Luck

Slow internet


If you have 3mb, you have cable internet right? If so, the cable company cuts your speed off if you download too much over a certain period of time. My cable company confirmed this. I can download all I want from midnight til noon, but after that... They will cut your speed off if you download more than a certain amount. You can call them to find out what the amount is.
