Optimum Voice and WRT54G Issue

I am currently using Optimum and their Triple Play package with the WRT54G router, Firmware Version 4.21.1, and I get intermitent loss of internet and voice. I just had the Optimum tech here today to check out the problem and he stated it is a problem with the router. Sure enough, he had a tester and it showed errors while the router was connected. When the router was removed from the configuration and the PC was directly connected, the testing equipment showed no errors. Has anyone ever heard of the router causing errors in such a manner that it will intermitently shut down the modem for both voice and data?

Hi, I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, and every time I want to connect with my WIFI the router reboots. This issue only happens with my Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, other phones and devices work just fine....


Hello,

Just had same problems with my brand new Xperia Mini Pro and old WRT54G ver 5. Every time I connected with WiFi the router restarted (once it returned to factory settings). I updated the router firmware to latest version (1.00.6 to 1.02.8) and after this it works fine.

Best Regards
Peder

Random reboots necessary.. possibly caused by surge or V spike


You have WRT54G router. check the version number of the router. If it is 5,6 or 8 then upgrade the firmware of the router. You will find the version number on the Flip side of the router. when you turn it upside down, you will see the model number and just after the model number , you will see the version number. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router and reconfigure the router .

Router Resets all Settings to Factory Default


I had the same problem before too. Try updating the firmware. After you update the firmware for that router, it shouldnt do that anymore.

I have a lynksys router


What is between the router and the location that will not allow you to connect? Is there anything electrical or is there concrete, etc.

Here a couple of ideas:

A) Move the router to a high spot in the current room
B) Create a reflector screen to help direct the signal to where you
need it. You can find the how to instructions on line and it's free
to try.
C) Check with Linksys to be sure you have the latest firmware
version installed.
D) Change the firmware in your router to an open source version
like tomato. Their version will allow you to increase the signal
output. Be sure to back up your current firmware before you do
this.

Be careful if you try step C. If you mess it up it can be a pain to recover from.

Linksys wireless-g wrt54g


Hi,

Chances are yes depending on the version that you have. This model has been in production for some time and variations has necessitated different Versions (mostly on the firmware).

The LinkSys page for various downloads (including latest firmware) is here. Again, you need to specify what version is your WRT54G.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G


The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
