Hi, I installed the Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G two months ago and have been to the help desk twice but still having connections problems. I have 3 computers (1 MAC, 2 laptops) and VOIP hooked up to the router. I use this for my home office and the other computers are rarely used and do not seem to have the connection lost problem. I run Windows XP, use VOIP (Vonage), VPN for my office and run many netmeetings and Instant Messaging all at the same time. I have tried both hardwire and wireless connections to the router but continue to be dropped. Usually what happens is I will be on the VOIP line, and running all above and then the voice goes silent, no audio, VPN goes down and then internet is dropped before it self boots again on its own. Any ideas of what I need to do? Please help, this is effecting my day at work.

Hi leftella, First of all, I would like to ask you few questions.
1.Who is your ISP(Internet service provider) like verizon, Bell, Comcast?
2.How many ports you see at the back of the Modem?like WAN, Ethernet, LAN, DSL, Data? 3.How many ports you see at the back of the Router?like Internet,Ethernet,WAN, LAN?
4.What is the make and model of the laptop with which you want to go wireless?
To setup the router you don't need any CD, just need to connect the Modem to router and router to your computer with hard wire Initially and then after setup, you can go wireless.
Hi, the first thing i would recommend is going to your linksys router and try turning it off for approximately 10 seconds then restoring it. Routers need refreshing at leasy on a monthly basis and tend to lose connection.
Step 2: if that does not work try the following. first click start, then go to control panel, then click network and double click network and internet connections. then click on network connections and right click on the network connection you use and click repair option. The repair option will fix your connection most likely.
click on Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Wireless Network Connections -> Properties -> In the box in the middle scroll to and click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" -> Click Properties -> Make sure "Obtain an IP Address Automaticaly" is Ticked -> make sure "obtain dns address automatically" is Ticked. -> ok -> click ok
See if you can connect
Click on Start -> Run -> Type CMD and hit enter. a command box will open. type in IPCONFIG/ALL
Please copy down the following numbers --- IP Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway DNS Servers
