Linksys WRT54G - Router Requires Constant Re-setting

Sep 7, 2012

Lately, I upgrade the firmware on my router. A linksys WRT54G. In order to access the router I had to do a manual reset to factory settings. Post upgrade, for some reason I couldn't access the internet. I tried everything for hours and finally through sheer luck of unplugging every cable and ever power lead and plugging it back in, it started working.

However, lately I've found that the only computer connected to the internet via eathernet cable is loosing connection intermittently. Also we seem to get constant huge spikes in latency and very inconsistent speed. Unplugging the router and plugging it back in again seems to solve this problem temporarily, but requires toggling of power multiple times a day. Also I had what I believe was an IP address conflict, or lack of an IP address once, but using the windows troubleshoot errors fixed that by resetting my wireless network card. (This was on a 2nd machine)

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V6 - ISP Requires PAP Or CHAP Authentication?

Sep 9, 2011

My ISP here at my mother's in Italy ( gave me the following configuration:
1. Supported Protocol: PPPoE or PPPoA

2. VPI: 8

3. VCI: 35

4. Encapsulation: LLC (If not supported: VCMUX/NULL)

5. Modulation: Multimode

6. Authentication Protocol: PAP or CHAP
if I connect my laptop to the ADSL modem, it all works just fine and I can connect to the internet (as you can see )
HOWEVER, if I then try to configure my WRT54G v6 to use this internet connection (I NEED to be wireless here, or I won't be able to use my iPhone and iPad), there is no way apparently for me to configure the Encapsulation, Modulation, and Authentication Protocol above. I just upgraded my WRT54G's firmware, and am now running firmware Ver.1.02.8, 10/05/2009. I was hoping this would allow me to set these parameters, but I can't find a way.
I tried just configuring the WRT54G with PPPoE and the ISP's userId/password, but this doesn't seem to suffice, and I don't see any other settings I could try.

Belkin Routers :: F5D8235-4 V3 - N+ Requires Constant Reboots To Maintain Speed?

Oct 14, 2012

N+ requires constant reboots to maintain speed. When I reboot the router F5D8235-4 v3 it will run at top speed of 10mbps, after a day or two it slows to about 2mpbs. A reboot will speed it up again. I would prefer that it run fast all the time. Firmware 3.00.15

Setting Up Wireless Router Linksys WRT54G With Hotwire Communications

Jun 25, 2011

We just moved into a new apartment. In our old place, we had Comcast cable internet with a modem and our wireless router worked fine. Now with Hotwire, we can't get the router to work. Here are the details:

-We can plug our computer directly into the ethernet cable outlet in the wall and it connects.

-We didn't get a modem from Hotwire.

-Wireless router: Linksys WRT54G

We've tried already to change router back to default factory settings. Didn't work. We reset our passwords for the router. Didn't work. Tried to put in the MAC address of the computer and it didn't seem to work. We originally were able to connect a computer to the internet through the router sometimes but just the wireless section didn't work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Setting Up Wifi Network?

Apr 27, 2013

I have the following equipment
E2500 wireless N router (2 of these)
WRT54g router (B/G)
WAP54g access point (B/G)
I am planning to set up a wi-fi network for a single story motel. It is C-shaped; about 300 feet along the longest side with "legs" of 120 and 70 feet. I have included a diagram that I drew for the person that will install it. Until now I have only used that single WRT54g in the office for the entire property and it covers about half the property (left side) but not well and with a dead spot in the top left because of too many walls to go through.
My plan starts in the office (bottom left) with a WRT54g connected to the DSL modem as it always was. That would be connected to one of the E2500s in the middle so it can cover the most area. From there two others would shoot out to each corner (the other E2500 and the WAP54g). They will all be wired together with Cat 5e "riser cable". The routers will be placed in a wide open attic.

1. Is this is a good plan for the size of property? I have heard that N routers have a range of 150ft in every direction so that's why I'm putting one in the middle. Keep in mind that while the attic is open and wood constructed, the walls between rooms are concrete firewall and they haven't been wi-fi friendly. Hopefully putting them in the attic takes care of this.

2. Does starting with a B/G router at the modem mean the N routers will revert to B/G?

3. What are the main settings I need to know about? What "mode" does each need to be set to?  Do they need different default gateways?

Can I use the same password/security for all of them? Should I use the same SSID for all?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G / Setting Up E1200 As Extension To Existing Network?

Apr 20, 2012

I have a WRT54G that has served us well for several years, but I needed a network connection in another part of the house, both wired for TV, and wireless for downstairs.  So I ran an ethernet cable through the house and connected it to my new E1200.  It's connected to Port 1, not the Internet port. The TV plugs into Port 2, and my Apple TV to port 3.  So far so good, TV and Apple TV appear to work fine.   Wireless is where I'm having problems, the wireless signals between the two routers appear on Wifi Analyzer I'm using.  Both appear strong in signal for a second, then they disappear, then they appear again for a second, then they disappear.  So the wifi's signals appear, then disappear and this cycle continues. 
The WRT54G is setup with DHCP, channel 6. 

IP Address:              Subnet Mask:              DHCP Server:    Enabled              Start IP Address:               End IP Address:
The E1200 DHCP is disabled, channel 11, 20mhz.

Router IP Address:  Subnet Mask:   DHCP Server:  Disabled  Start IP Address:   (DHCP disabled)  End IP Address:  (DHCP is disabled)

I've tried both routers named the same, and then tried 2 different names.  I've rebooted them as well after making changes.

Linksys WRT54G / Setting Up 2 Networks On One WAN Address?

Apr 2, 2011

In my home, I have broadband internet connection, which is Time Warner Cable. I also have an Apple Airport Extreme that shares my internet throughout all of my computers. My current set up runs perfectly but the problem is, I have other devices in my home that require a WEP security key. My Airport Extreme is running on WPA but I don't want to lower it's security to WEP just for those devices. What I'm trying to do is create another separate network which has a WEP security key (Linksys WRT54G). So ultimately, I would like to set up two networks, one is the Airport Extreme and the other Linksys, which both run under the same WAN address provided by Time Warner Cable.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Requires Regular Reboots?

Jul 25, 2012

So I have a WRT160N firmware v3.0 wired connection to my PC, and at least once a day my connection speed drops from 2mbs down to almost dial up speeds at 60kps. Just unplugging the router then plugging it back in seems to fix it every time.   I've contacted my service provider and they say there's no issue on their end, and since I don't get this problem when I plug the modem directly to the PC I agree with them.  I've done a factory reset and that didn't work.  I've gone through the FAQ and can't find anything useful in there.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 USB Printer Requires Cisco Connect Software?

Jul 28, 2011

I was excited to learn that USB printer support was added to the E4200. I'm disappointed to find that the USB printer option that is available in firmware version 1.0.02 requires Cisco Connect software. There is no version of Cisco Connect for Linux. I was hoping that this would allow the printer to be shared among my Win7 desktop, Win7 laptop, and my Linux desktop running Ubuntu 10.10. No such luck. WIth the printer connected to the router I can print with any one computer. My previous configuration had the printer connected to my WIn7 desktop so that desktop had to be turned-on to print. The bottom line is that I still can't print from the Linux box without turning on the desktop machine. Cisco please provide a way to connect to the printer without using the Connect software! Or provide a java version that can be run on any OS.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Constant Reboots With Media Streaming

Dec 5, 2011

I upgraded my E3000 to a new E4200 several months ago.  I use an SSL VPN to connect to work which worked fine on 1.0.01 and 1.0.02 but I upgraded to 1.0.03 to fix an issue where the router constantly reboots when I stream Netflix or Hulu and now the router reboots with Netflix, Hulu AND the SSL VPN tunnel initiation.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 - Constant Instability / How To Improve Performance

Oct 9, 2012

I've recently acquired a Linksys E1200 router--which is more than a week old--from the recommendation of a friend of mine. The service is great and all, but the one thing that frequently bothers me is the seeming constant instability of my router's model. There are moments when the router performs smoothly, but there is as much an instance because the router doesn't seem to work at all even when the lights (and the accompanying connection) on my modem seem to be working in good order.
I know that a router will always have its problems, but this is really a constant problem with the E1200; and if so, if there's any way possible on how I can be able to "stabilize" the said router's performance.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: X3000 Requires Daily Restart?

Feb 3, 2012

I have a Linksys X3000 router.  While it is running, connection latency will gradually increase over about a day until eventually it just stops working at all and I have to power it off and back on again.
Ping times to a local website slowly increase from 30ms immediately after restarting the router, to about 100ms about an hour before it will need to be restarted, then rapidly increase to over 1 second before it drops out completely.  When this happens, no connections through the router will work, I cannot even ping it or connect to its configuration web page.
I upgraded the firmware to see if that would work but it didn't.  I have had the exact same problems with the 1.0.0 and 1.0.01 versions.
Can I get it replaced?  And in the mean time, is there some way to make the router automatically restart at a scheduled time?

Can't Access Wrt54g After Setting Up Tomato WDS?

Mar 6, 2011

I picked up a WRT54G 3.1, installed Tomato 1.28, and went through the instructions here to setup WDS: [URL]. As soon as I hit SAVE, I can no longer access the router, wired, wirelessly, or any other way shape or form. I'm sure i didn't change the IP address on the router (thus changing the admin local URL), I've tried going with HTTPS but was pretty certain that wasn't the issue anyway.Right now, I've got a chunk of blue and grey plastic on my desk, and no extended network. My plan was to use this to extend the Time Capsule network so I can plug my XBOX into the WRT54G in another room. In any event, if it were only network config I was dealing with, but how in the heck can I connect to the Tomato admin on the WRT54G now?

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: AE1000 Requires Connections To Be Managed By Windows 7

Jan 19, 2011

Trying to install the Linksys AE1000 wireless adapter on Windows 7 x64. So I follow the instructions. insert CD. Insert adapter.The i get this error:
"Linksys Wireless-N Router requires that wireless connections are to be managed by the Microsoft Windows Wireless Connection Manager. Some laptops and computers are pre-loaded with a different wireless connection manager which prevents your Valet or Linksys Wireless-N Router installation from loading. If this is the case, then you will need to disable or turn OFF the other wireless connection manager, and enable the Microsoft Windows Wireless Connection Manager instead."
What manager? This is windows 7, I'm not using any third party wireless utility so I don't understand why I'm getting this particular error. If windows wireless connection manager is off, how do I enable it?I've always managed my network setting through the Network and sharing center,I've tried:
(1) sweeping registry files before install(2) Plugging in AE1000 first and manually installing drivers
When I did this, the device shows up successfully in device manager and the driver installs smoothly, however when I go to network adapters, the AE1000 is listed as disabled. I tried enabling it but to no avail. Running the network diagnostics claims the driver doesn't work despite the fact that it installed successfully.
After several restarts and disabling/re-installations I recieve the same error.The end goal is to connect the AE1000 to a Cisco E3000 router.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: Cisco X2000 Drops Wireless Signal - Requires Reboot

Jul 15, 2012

I recently installed a Cisco X2000. Several PCs running Windows XP Pro connect wirelessly. Also, we have an Android device and iPhone connected to the wireless network. We have a network printer and network drive connected via wires to the router. Most of the time the router and cable modem features work well. However, every so often all devices lose wireless signal simultaneously. It is not possible to reconnect to the X2000 unless I unplug the X2000 and plug it back in. After this reboot, we can connect again. Obviously, this is quite frustrating. By the way, we get acceptable signal strength after the X2000 locks out however none of the devices (computers or phones) are able to connect.

Connect To A Router That Requires A Password?

Apr 6, 2012

I have a Cisco Valet wifi router that works fine with my laptop and my computer that has a usb wifi adapter. The problem is that for some reason when I try to connect my moms computer to the router it can only connect to the guest router and when I try to connect to the regular router it just fails even when I use the correct password. I have tried uninstalling the driver and re-installing it for the usb wifi adapter for my moms computer (NetGear N150 USB Adapter) and its nothing works. Her computer by the way is an Acer Windows XP SP3 machine.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WMP300N Constant Reboot Out Of Warranty?

Dec 19, 2011

I just attempted to install a brand new WMP300N, and when I give the system power, it continually reboots every 15-20 seconds.  The BIOS never logs a problem, so I suspect that the system resets during the POST. I initially suspected a power supply problem, even though I have a 900w power supply.  Pulling the card allows the system  to boot normally, but after removing power from all drives (ssd, hdd, and dvd),switching to onboard video and pulling my pci-e video card, the system still will not POST, and continually reboots.
I've had this card sitting new in the packaging for a while now (at least a year) and I'm sure I no longer have the receipt. Is there any way for me to attempt an RMA on this card, or am I out of luck for waiting so long to actually open it?

Constant Disconnection From Router 2 To 1

Sep 17, 2012

I am not good at networking. My friend wanted me to set up his home network.because the modem is unable to supply a good wireless connection to the rest of the household when the door is closed, a second router was needed.I set both routers to run with DHCP as they have many devices that needs to connect to the router for internet. However, a few hours after setting it up, my friend's pc as well as all devices connected to the second router faced issues. The router's interface showed that it does not have connection to the internet. they are still facing this problem until now.

Belkin Router Constant Disconnect?

Sep 17, 2011

I am an unlucky person who still has a belkin router. Not only do i have a belkin router, my PC is also connected via 2 switch boxes all ethernet cabled together in and around the house.

I am unable to forward and ports succesfully because after i have saved the settings i check it with a port checking site and it says they're all closed.

I have also been getting disconnected from my router when its under stress (Most recently playing League of Legends) but my Dad's Pc (Which is only connected to the Belkin) still stays connected and hasn't experienced any disconnections.

My router model is F5D7634-4 v2, DHCP is enabled but only my Dad's PC appears, UPnP is enabled but doesn't seem to work and my fireware is up to date.

I used to have a different router before this one which never had these disconnecting problems.

DIR-815 Router Can't Seem To Maintain Constant Internet Connection?

May 7, 2012

I have a new DIR-815 router, with a network consisting of one HP desktop computer, one Sony VAIO laptop computer and one Samsung tablet computer.My problem is that I can't seem to maintain a constant internet connection requiring a new router setup at least once a week, sometimes more frequently.Also, even though the network I set up is called "HOME" my desktop, which is the computer connected to my cable provider, never shows any connection to that network. Both the laptop and the tablet connect to the :HOME" network while the desktop connects to something called "Network 5" which does not show up anywhere in my setup. As long as I have an Internet connection I really don't care what the connection is called, but I find it strange that I am connected to a network that apparently does not even exist

Netgear Wndr3700v3 Router - Constant Small Lag Spikes

Jun 3, 2012

I've been having this issue with my wireless connection for quite a few months now and up until now I've just dealt with it. With the release of Diablo 3 (whoo!) it's become unbearable with this lag spikes. My ping will be fine, steady around 50-90 but then randomly spike upwards of 400. After a few moments (literally a second or two) it'll drop back down to it's normal speed. This happens in all online games I play, WoW, League of Legends, DotA 2 and now Diablo 3, I have roadrunner and pay for 25 download and 1 upload so it should be more than enough to play the games I'd like, I'm also running on windows 7. I think part of the problem could be the fact that the router is in the basement and I'm on the second story. I have a netgear wndr3700v3 router and I set up a repeater in my room to see if that would work (asus rt-n12 router) and although it has increased my speed, I still have these ping spikes.

I'm currently running Windows 7, and I have this issue where from time to time I am booted from my internet with the error saying either one of two things, one being; No internet access but it does show I am connected to my router, and the other being; plug in an ethernet cable. My 2 brothers on the other hand are both connected to the same router through cables as well and neither have this issue. Both issues seem to simply fix themselves by just waiting, but the disconnects are killing me.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Router Needs Constant Reboots - Update To Latest Firmware?

Nov 13, 2011

I'm running a D-Link DIR-655 Hardware Version A3, Firmware Version 1.21. In the past, it has been flaky, and I considered updating to the latest firmware (1.3+ something), but everywhere I read (mainly this forum) said it might be WORSE for the router and couldn't even be downgraded, so I decided to ride it out.

Eventually the problem disappeared and I forgot about it, but now it's back with a vengeance. Recently I opened up a Guest Zone so my neighbors could borrow wifi, and I occasionally run torrents. Torrenting seems to definitely crash the router overnight, while it also seems to randomly bug out, possibly when the neighbors are using the Guest Zone. The Guest Zone might be responsible, but I have no idea.

For what it's worth, I don't think my neighbors are terribly tech-savvy, so I doubt they're filesharing or doing anything risky. They might have malware installed, but I don't know.

Is there a way I can diagnosis my precise issue, should I go ahead and update to the latest firmware to try?

Linksys WRT54G / Use SMCD3GN As A Router?

I have an SMCD3GN which I put into bridge mode a while ago and used it as a modem alongside my Linksys WRT54G router. But the SMC is capable of Wireless N, while the Linksys is only capable of wireless G.So I want to turn my SMC into a router + modem again, but I can't figure out how to do it. I tried resetting to factory defaults by holding the reset button at the back of the unit for 30 seconds but it didn't work.I can get it to work with a wired connection, but when I type ipconfig /all into CMD, it doesn't show any default gateway, so I can't access the router online. I've tried various different IPs like,, etc., but none of them work.

Replace Linksys WRT54G Router

Nov 15, 2012

I had an issue yesterday with no internet access on my desktop computer; the message said "Network cable unplugged" so I called AT&T tech support for assistance. I have 2 Dell computers; a desktop and a laptop which I use wirelessly in the house.After doing several things from disconnecting the router to try and determine if the problem was with my router or an ethernet cable AT&T determined a port on my router which is 6 years old could be going bad and recommended I replace my router.I contacted Linksys yesterday; spoke to tech support for my WRT54G router and was given 2 model recommendations. One was a Model E900 N300 and a more expensive model; an EA2700 N600. There is a price difference of $40.00 USD between the 2 models. I could probably get by with the E900 N300 for $49.99 but the guy at Linksys was putting the pressure on me to buy the more expensive one for $89.99. I told him I'd have to think about it.
