Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
I've got the blinking power light which supposedly indicates that the firmware crapped out and needs to be updated. Hooking directly into the modem, I've been able to download the update and the Linksys software to update the firmware. I reset the router and plug directly into it. The IP Address will default to the standard 192.168.1.1, but after less than 30 seconds, it will change itself to a different IP address. I cannot figure this out. Even when using the new IP Address, the Linksys firmware update software cannot connect to the router to update.
Tips for a great answer:

- Before you reset the router, unplug all the cables attached to it
except the power cord.
- Make sure the router is plugged into the power outlet, then hold down
the reset button at
the back of the router for 30 seconds using a paper clip or a pen. You should see the lights
flicker momentarily on the front panel of the router.
2. Once the lights are stable, connect 1 computer or laptop directly to
the back of the
router(LAN ports usually they are labeled by numbers and have the same
color, just pick one).
If you pick number 1, check the corresponding light indicator at the
front panel of the
router, make sure light 1 is also lit up if not choose another port at
the back of the router.

or 192.168.1.1 in the
address field of your browser and then press Enter. Type admin for the router user name and your
password (or the default, password). Setup
