I had this set-up for several years with no problems. We came home to find both units off line. Unit # 1 went on-line, OK. unit# 2 would not. Unit # 2 showed poor connectivity on the lan. Changed the ethernet card,cable, called my provider, who gave me the phone # for linksys. They would talk me thru the fix for my router. Because that was my problem. Well linksys told me my unit was out of warranty, goodby. I bought a new router (netgear) and it would complete the installation. But it still showed poor connectivity on the lan. About a week ago I discovered if I disconnected unit # 1, unit # 2 would go on line, no problem. I'm using it now, but it still shows poor connectivity on the lan. But I can't be on line with both units at the same time. HELP paul
Hi, I read your site and took it for face value, hoping to solve my problem. Like you offered, I would gladly pay $10 if your solution worked. But it seems like so many sites, pay up front and get ........... Sorry Paul

According to Linksys support, you should not reset your WRT120n wireless router unless you are having difficulties with the unit. The WRT120n user guide also recommends applying other troubleshooting options before attempting to reset the device. Resetting the WRT120n restores the router back to factory defaults. After resetting the Linksys 120n, you''ll have to reconfigure the router back to your preferred settings.
Locate the Reset button on the back panel of the WRT120n. The button is labeled "Reset" and situated between the power port and the "1" Ethernet port. Press and hold down the "Reset" button for five seconds. The device resets. Open a Web browser on your computer. Type "192.168.1.1" into the browser's address field, then press "Enter" on your keyboard. A login prompt opens. Enter "admin" as the password. Leave the User Name field blank, then click "OK" to log in to your router and access your network settings.
As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.
A simple solution is to plug your modem in to the lan port of your router. A complex solution is to change your lan ip address different then the modem ip address. For example my lan ip for my modm is 192.168,1,1 and my router is 192.168.9.1.
This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Try the other ports at this time.
If you still have problems:
Once the router has been reset, you can log in to it.. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
There you can look around the setup pages and see if any errors are reported. Also make sure that it is set for DHCP. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
There's a possibility that the router is already going bad but you can try first updating the firmware of the router because sometimes this problem is related to the software of the router so you may need to update its firmware,but if still after updating and still the same a new router will be the best solution for this problem of yours..You can also call this number for technical support help and double checking if the router is bad or still can be fix 1-877-787-8749...

Do you have IIS installed on your xp machine? If not , go to add/remove programs, click add /remove windows components, and select Internet Information Service, and click apply/ok. You may be asked for your XP disk , if so, insert the disk into the drive requested to procede. Once IIS is installed on the machine, Set the router up for port forwarding on ports 24, and 25.
