Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Lose Connections over and over...

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.

You may need to set specific ports on your router to use the voip. log onto router and go to the applications and gaming tab to set the specific ports voip needs to access Internet.

    you are at the right tab but voip uses different protocols than you can select on that router page(UDP/TCP). Does your voip use a gateway of any kind? Have you set up the router to be a dhcp server? if so, i woiuld statically assign ip addresses to the devices connecting to router and maybe put the voip device on the dmz port.

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.

Can't connect to 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.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter


your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.
