Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
This unit worked fine at the start but now seems to be dropping the connection to my modem and I have to keep resetting it. anyone tell what to do to coreect the problem??
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.
