Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Loose connection Several times a day I am live on the internet, I go away for awhile and upon return my connection is lost. I have to go and reset my modum and router to regain connection. Contacted the provider they say my modum and connection is fine. I by pass the router and go direct into my desktop or laptop and everything works fine from the modum. The router is only a month old. and they won't take it back for exchange. I need some help to be able to stay connected and be wired to desktop and wireless to laptop all the time. modum is also less than a month old. thinking about getting a hub to indirectly connect everything to the internet. Use the hub to branch off the signal from the modum to solve this dilema.

    Hi Black Wolf - could you please tell me the version number of your router? It can be found on a label with the model #.

    Most problems with routers are software based issues. Most manuf. make firware updates to fix issues they have found with the software. Usually a call to the manuf tech support will walk you thru a firmware update or a replacement under the manf warranty.

  1. Update the Firmware on your router.
  2. When you lose internet, look on your modem and make sure that no lights have gone out. (i.e. Cable) If this one goes out, it is your provider.

Why is my toshiba Satellite P-850 clock loosing time

It *might* be
- that the "CMOS battery" (normally a coin cell about 13mm in diameter) is dead, in which case you should replace it.
- The crystal which stabilizes the RTC has drifted.
- If this problem has always occurred it may be the that the RTC chip is defective, but this is highly unlikely, and even less likely to have developed a fault with time.
- if you connect to the internet frequently (several times per day) the above can be ruled out (I think).

See for example (just one of thousands)

Search the internet on terms similar to "real time clock in pc loses time" for more ideas

1993 Nissan Altima will crank but won't start - sometimes - altitude issues?

The system is not affected by altitude in this way, the thing you need to check is fuel pressure, this may be pump related.

Electrical problems

Had a similar issue with my 99 Cherokee, after a lot of money wasted at Jeep dealer with the issue returning after a few days. Jeep replaced the gages, the wiring harness for that led to the gages twice. Took it to a friend of a co-worker shop and he made a custom wiring harness, the issue was the wiring harness was over heating and then failing.
