Question about Linksys WRT54GX2 Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX200 (LS-WRT54G2)

1 Answer

My router keeps disconnecting the internet

I have a WRT54GX2 SRX200 wireless router. The lights, especially the power and internet lights, keep blinking on and off every minute or so. I keep getting connected and then disconnected to the internet. How do I solve this problem? I called linksys a few times but they weren't able to help me..
And I know it's not the modem because I can directly connect the labtop or desktop to the internet and there's no problem.

A blinking power light suggest that the device is already broken. Go to the command prompt and ping the roouter. If you can still ping it then i suggest to upgrade the firmware of your router.

Hello nanpw,
To reset your router to factory, take a paper clip and press the reset button. Hold it for about 30 seconds or until the lights on the router flash. open a web browser and type username is (blank) password is admin then run the wireless setup utility, after your laptop is connected its always a good idea to include security.

If you have an internet connection using the ethernet cable but not on the wireless and there is an orange light blinking.. Try to reset the router by pressing the reset button located on the back or on the location were you can twist the stand for the router. press it for about 10secs and that will return the router on a factory settings. before u reset the router make sure to acces the configuration for the internet settings of your isp provider. if the orange light still there, try to download the latest firmware of your router on linksys site and that should fix the problem

How rset the linksys srx200


Welcome to Fixya. If you want to reset the settings of your router you can simply press the reset button at the back of the router for 10-15 seconds using a Pen or a Paper Clip. Lights will start blinking indicating that you've successfully reset the router. Keep in mind that resetting the router will remove all the saved settings inside and it will be back on its factory settings.

To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default username is blank and the password is admin.

Thanks for usin

Did you try plugging it in to a different power outlet? If there is no power light on your router still after trying a different power outlet, this means that the router has gone bad .

My internet signal keeps going in and out. It is difficult to do anything. The internet and wireless lights are blinking on the router. Is the blinking normal?

blinking is normal coz it tells you that you have connection betwwen your computer and router. you have to check your ISP for the intermittent connection that you are getting. there might be reported problem in your area or there is a downtime in your ISP.
