Question about Linksys WRT54GX2 Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX200 (LS-WRT54G2)
I have broadband cable modem connected to the Linskys WRT54GX2 (ver 2) router. Recently, the connection between my laptop and the router would disconnect after a few minutes. Now, it does not connect at all. In fact, my desktop unit has problems connecting to the internet unless I take the Linksys router out of the loop (like right now).
I was going to try and re-install the router, but wanted to ask your advice before doing so.
the setup that worked for months was coax --> cable modem, ethernet from cable modem--> linksys, ethernet from linksys-->desktop.
in order to be online with my desktop right now, it is coax --> cable modem, and then ethernet from cable modem-->desktop.
It might be because of interference...no issues dont worry about that...
JUst follow these steps and the issue will be resolved....

you might have a modem with an ethernet connection to connect to the net .
if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb broadband modem which can work on a desktop also once you recieve the modem just insert the modem into a usb port and follow the prompts you might need some drivers for the usb broadband modem which can be supplied by the ISP internet provider
hope this helps
