Linksys Router WRT54gs CD Download?

Aug 25, 2011

I lost my Cd for the router. I have the Linksys WRT54GS V7.2. It works if I hook my computer & x-box up to it. But the problem I'm having is not being able to make it a secure network to keep my neighbors from pinging off of my internet. I know when they come home everday without looking out my window. My connection goes from great to I'm not sure my page is ever going to load. This just started when they got two or more laptops.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Wifi Download Speed 1/3 Of Wired Speed

Dec 28, 2010

I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router.  Uploads are 2Mbps either way.  I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy.  The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router?  If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem.  That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case.  I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service.  There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Can't Get Internet

Apr 16, 2013

I have a 2wire modem connected to the Internet port of my WRT54GS which is connected to a D link DSS 16+ Fast Ethernet switch. Without the switch, I can connect wired and wirelessly to my WRT54GS. However, when I put connect my any port of my D link switch to ports 1 - 5 of WRT54GS, I loose internet all together either wired/wireless to the router or wired to the D-link switch.I wonder why the IP Address will change as I understand that the switch is just a pass through switch.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Will Not Allow To Set Up Encryption

Dec 21, 2011

I'm having a very difficult time getting my WRT54GS to work with my Westell 6100 modem. I've been bouncing around gathering info, and what I've learned is that the goofy way CenturyLink tech support told me to hook up my old wired router (modem line into outgoing (LAN) router port) is because the Westell 6100 is a "smart modem/router". Therefore, when I run the Linksys setup CD, it sees the modem as a router, and won't properly configure. I've also learned that the Westell modem can be "dumbed down" into simply a modem by putting it into "bridge mode", which is where I'm at right now - trying to get it reset to factory defaults and resetting the connection type from PPPoE to Bridge. In the meantime, I also reset the WRT54GS to factory defaults, and now I've got another problem: the router will not allow me to set up encryption. The default setting is "Disabled", and when I click the down arrow and try to make any selection at all (preferred selection is WPA2 Personal), it reverts to Disabled. I've also tried to change the router's IP address to (and alternately to, so it won't conflict with the modem's IP, and it freezes up every time I try.

Linksys Wireless Router :: VPN Connection Failed When Using WRT54GS

Sep 12, 2011

Currently I have Verizon DSL and which supplied me with a Westell 7500 modem/wireless router.  I am also connecting a Linksys WRT54GS (firmware Version: 7.2.08) to the Westell 7500.
When I connect via cable or wireless to Linksys WRT54GS I am not able to establish VPN connection. I get the error “Error 619: A connection to the remote computer could not be established. So the port used for this connection was closed”.
However, when I connect via cable or wireless to Westell 7500 I am able to connect to VPN.
I tried resetting the Linksys WRT54GS to factory settings and reconfigured but no success to VPN.
At work we have a Windows 2003 setup with VPN Role on it and on my laptop I am using the built in VPN connection within Windows 7.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using Old WRT54GS As A Range Extender?

May 1, 2012

I first want to say I "think" I might be posting in the wrong forums for this question, but because I'm not really sure what the proper terminology for this is, I thought it best to ask here.
I have recently upgraded my router for my home network from an old Linksys WRT54GS G router, to a new E2500 N router.  I have heard/read that it is possible to reconfiqure my old router to act as a range extender for my network but I am unclear how to do so.  I think this may be the same thing as an access point, but all the FAQ's I've found seem to have this work as a solo device, not as a device on existing network.  I have my e2500 setup with the modem in my study and broadcasting from there, and would like to use my old G router set up as a range extender to be located in the front living room area and picking up the network signal and rebroadcasting from there without a modem or computer attached.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Connect Tablet To Wrt54gs

Dec 25, 2011

I have a wrt54gs linsys router with speedbooster.  I bought my son a tablet for xmas.  I cannot connect the tablet to the network.  It finds my network, searches for an IP address, and then disconnects.  It will connect for about 2 seconds, and then shows disconnected.  My PC's, and WII work fine, although getting the WII ad netflix to reconnect after a power outage is like rocket science requiring field support every time.  My tablet wont stay connected, and the book tells me that the router must accept 802.11b/g, and that if it has 802.11n, then it needs to be reconfigured to accept 802.11b/g.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS Cannot Ping Any Of 192.168.10.X IP Addresses

May 8, 2013

I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router (, which hands-out DHCP addresses to my wireless/wired clients.  This router is connected to the cable modem which then connects to the wonderful World Wide Web.  Port 1 of this router is connected to a Cisco SG200-8 Small Business Switch (,  My Dell 2950 is then connected to the SG200-8.
I know I'm doing something wrong because I cannot ping any of the 192.168.10.X IP addresses from the 10.77.79.X network, and vice-versa. All VLANs on the SG200-8 are set at their defaults (1 and Trunked?). Are there any additional configuration steps I need to perform in the SG200-8 or WRT54G?Is what I want to do even possible with my hardware?

I've tried a couple of different PC's with a couple of different IE versions. I already updated to the newest firmware, firmware is 7.50.8, I've also factory reset it a couple of times, and I've just run into a brick wall.  I've setup hundreds of these routers before so it's not like I don't know how.

Linksys WRT54GS Wireless Router Has Stopped Working

May 29, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router that has stopped working. All it will do is all 4 of the Ethernet port lights on the front light up solid green along with the Internet light. Is there any hope of fixing this?

It wouldn't make that much of a difference, but I already purchased a new LInksys Cisco EA3500, but I cannot get it to do my port forwarding. I have tried everything and nothing works. Have spent hours on the phone with tech support with no solution. My old WRT54GS just simply worked. The port forwarding worked perfect. I have tried the exact same setup in the new EA3500 and no luck no matter what I try.

So, is there anything I can do to get the old WRT54GS working? I have tried holding the reset button in for 1 minute and then unplugging it

Linksys Wireless Router :: Fatal Security Flaw In WRT54GS?

Feb 2, 2012

Firmware is 1.52.0.  Model is WRT54GS.I'm configured with WPA2-PSK/AES.  Broadcasting my SSID.  No MAC access filtering.HTTPS access only to the config pages.  Custom (not default) password.  Remote management disabled.
Summary:The router simply "forgot" its assigned SSID and reverted to broadcasting as "linksys".It also ceased encrypting its broadcast.I was able to log in and change it back.  It retained many of the OTHER settings I had previously configured.
Details:Two days ago, I noticed my client (laptop) could no longer see the usual SSID that I connect to on my home network.However, there was a new SSID in the area, named "linksys", broadcasting UNSECURED.Coincidentally, this new "linksys" access point had the exact same signal strength that my usual access point typically had.So, I connected to it, you know, just to see.I was only able to access the config pages at my custom IP address (not at x.y.0.1), prefixed with the "https://" scheme identifier.And it didn't prompt for a password.  Hopefully because it recognized the cookie my browser still carried from the last time I logged in to it.  But maybe because it had temporarily dropped ALL of its security measures...It was definitely my router.  Just, stripped of its usual encryption/authentication and its usual SSID.So, I switched the SSID back to what it usually is.And I turned the WPA2-PSK/AES encryption back on.The router "remembered" my WPA2 passphrase, which it displayed to me as plaintext when I pulled down the "security mode" dropdown menu and selected "WPA2 Personal".After re-configuring, it works as well as ever.Is this a known security flaw in the WRT45GS? seems like a fatal one, as far as network security is concerned.Is it limited to one firmware release?
