Try to reduce the MTU on the router's settings. Open the setup page of the router. Launch your browser like IE or Mozilla. Type on the address bar and press Enter. It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there is no username. On the password field type admin and press enter. Look for MTU under the Setup tab. By default it is on Auto. Set it to Manual and change the MTU size to 1463 (default is 1500). Then click on Save Settings button on the bottom. If it saved it, turn off the router for 30 secs then power it back on. Check your gaming again. Hope this helps.

I brought a Laptop (acer) I need to connect to my network but I can't remember my password. How can it get into the router to see what it is. I've called Linksys but they want to charge me 29.99

there a reset button on the back to reset config. so you must have all the router config backup on paper.

to reset router:
1st the router manual, needed for config.
2nd backup router config.(on paper)
3rd press the reset button more than 5 sec. until all lights were off (except on)
4rd reed manual the steps for 1st time config.
then config router again, and test internet connectivity and wireless security level (WPA2), change all router passw every 30days or less.

Adapter failed to find Linksys connection

I received no was a wasted 2 hrs trying to understand the
technicians....I was promised that they could help me and the fee would be waived if
they couldn't....I have contested the amount with MC credit and explained that
I received no service. Don't know if I will purchase or recommend any
Linksys products after this awful experience. I wouldn't buy any program that asks for money up front and then doesn't deliver.....bad company and questionable value

Linksys router wrt54g

To connect your computer to the router, all you should need to do is to connect the cables in one of the numbered ports on the router and then reboot your computer so that it pulls an IP address from the router.

Satelite Internet service vareis greatly from the normal setup required of cable or DSL providers, so perhaps you should contact your internet providers support technicians as those calls are free.

As for the gaming ports; in the menu of your router, you will find the port forwarding option available. Simply enter the ports you use to play those games with and you will be able to open them up for better game playing. Test it a few times to make sure you have the settings right, but it is normally fairly simple and understandable even if you haven't read the manual before.

I have a new WRT546 and want to know if it will work with voip phone

the wrt54g is an above average router when it comes to features and WORKABILITY, and it has a long life too. if you dont want to give up this router that you have right now, try to look for a APA (analog phone adapter) that will provide your router / network a phone port for VoIP. an example is the PAP2 from Linksys also, but if you already have a VoIP service provider like Vonage, you may want to ask them for recommendations on what APA will be the best for their service.

Connection prob

I assume you want router info - default username is admin and no password (should be on a sticker on back of router), default config web page is If these have changed and you don't know them, it's probably best to reset the modem to factory defaults - usually by pushing reset button for about 8 secs. User manual should have this info or download it from Hope this helps
