This router needs to load up with a new Firmware that is the software of the router inside it and also the router needs to be reset and reconfigure so it will be working fine, I will advice you to call Linksys tech support and let them walk you through with the software update and reconfiguration of the router this is the number for linksys 800-3267114.

Hope that helps........

One possibility is that your wireless is being interferred with by either another wireless router or a cordless phone. 2.4Ghz cordless phones can knock a wireless router offline. I had a similar issue with a panasonic 2.4 Ghz phone taking down my 54g.
I replaced it with a 5.8Ghz model and all is good. If you are in an apartment complex, it is possible the interference is coming from a neighbor. You might try switching the "channel" in the router configuration. Test various channels to see if the problem still exists.

Cannot get a network connection using my linksys modelWRT54G2 WIRELESS ROUTER

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Hi i cant connect to internet

I don't know why this is posted in UPS problems, but anyway...
Try two things--the easiest is to turn off (unplug from power) your router and your modem. Let sit a few minutes, turn back on, then see if that has done the trick.

If that doesn't work, you may simply need to go to network and sharing center if you have Vista, click on "connect to a network", and see if your router is found as a wireless connection available to you. If it is, just click on it, and you are in business. If you can't find your router via the windows utilities, (various other things to do are in "help"), you may have to
reconfigure your router setup by resetting your router to its virgin state--usually by pushing a paper clip into the reset hole in the router--usually mentioned in the directions. Then just reconfigure it according to directions, and you are in business.
