If you are still experiencing the dropped connections, you might think about switching to a 3rd party firmware instead of the Linksys one. I found that from the time I purchased my WRT54G router till I switched to a 3rd party firmware (which was over 2 years), Linksys had not released one update to the firmware for my router.

I now use Tomato firmware which you can download from http://www.polarcloud.com/tomato/

Tomato is a small, lean and simple replacement firmware for Linksys' WRT54G/GL/GS, Buffalo WHR-G54S/WHR-HP-G54 and other Broadcom-based routers. It features a new easy to use GUI, a new bandwidth usage monitor, more advanced QOS and access restrictions, enables new wireless features such as WDS and wireless client modes, raises the limits on maximum connections for P2P, allows you to run your custom scripts or telnet/ssh in and do all sorts of things like re-program the SES/AOSS button, adds wireless site survey to see your wifi neighbors, and more.

I have not experienced any lost connections due to the router and have even transfered the HOSTS file from my laptop onto the router which downloads an updated version of a HOSTS file provided by http://www.mvps.org.
If you have more than one computer behind the router then having the HOSTS file on the router is a real bonus.

Even if your Linksys is 'behaving' I would suggest you take a look at Tomato or other 3rd party firmware and see the benefits.

Wired connection randomly drops


Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!

Intermittent internet disconnection, yet internet is fine


Please check the firmware of your router first. in most of the Wireless router the connection dropping issue is due to old firmware, also try chaning the wireless channel to 9 under the 2.4 GHz network to optimise the Wireless connection.

Wireless broadband connection dropping all the time


Hi
There are a number of things that can cause this. The most common as as follows.
1) Either your computer or wireless modem is being effected by mains interference. Make sure that all power cables are clear of your modem and computer, except those essential to run the units.

2) Your computer is picking up another local wireless modem signal on the same channel. Try changing channels.

3) Your modem drivers need updating. Visit the manufacturer's website and download the latest driver.

4) Your computer is too far away from your wireless modem.

There are numerous other reasons, but it is worth trying the obvious first. The most common of all is mains or power cable interference.

Router seems to drop connection frequently


What a static ip is, is the ip address that the router automatically assigns to other equipment. (computers, xbox, ect.) Find D-links customer support line for help.
