Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V8 Drops Internet Connection?

Sep 8, 2011

Wired computer runs XP sp3.  Wireless runs Ubuntu 10.04.  Hooked to Embarq DSL modem. Setup worked flawlessly for a year or more.  Now the router is sporadically dropping the internet connection for both PCs. I haven't discovered how to guarantee an immediate reconnection so the desktop is now connected directly to the modem.  The modem is apparently stable as I'm not losing the internet connection.  When the router is in the circuit, the internet connection may or may not appear shortly.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Drops Internet Intermittently

Sep 14, 2011

My Linksys Router WRT54G has recently (yesterday) started dropping the internet after being online for a few hours.The current setup has been in place for several years.  I started with the Broadband provider and they verified that the signal and cable modem is working properly.  My own tests back this up. At first I simply reset the router.  Unplugged it for 30 seconds and plugged it back in.  Internet is back.  Then I tried resetting the cable modem and the router.  This works as well but the problem presists. Resetting the router alone has the same affect.So, something with the router is causing it to drop the internet.  The network does not drop however.  I can still use my network drive and the computers indicate a network with no internet connection.

Linksys Wireless Router :: New E4200 Drops Internet Connection To Laptop Only

Nov 29, 2011

I have a brand new E4200 with two desktop computers using it with no problems.  I also have a work Thinkpad laptop that I use a couple of times a week from home.  Since day one of installing the new router, I have experienced the blue screen of death numerous times during the day (the number of times varies from 1 to 6 on a really bad day).  I believe this is happening when I lose my connection to the router.  I can see it trying to reestablish itself but the VPN will drop the connrection before it has a chance.  I never lost my VPN connection until the day I installed the  new router.  Yesterday, at least one time it was unable to reestablish connectivity with the router and I had to reboot the laptop to get it connected.  Could this have something to do with the IP address?  I do not have any issues with the laptop when I am at work using a docking station.
So, I am wondering why I am constantly losing connectivity on the laptop only.  The laptop has Windows XP and I am using AT&T Global Network Client to access the work network.  Is there a setting somewhere that will fix this?  Our IT folks rebuilt my laptop and I am still experiencing the same problem.   I checked and I have the current version of the firmware for the router.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Randomly Drops Internet Connection

Dec 27, 2011

I have an E2500 with the latest firmware upgrade (1.0.03). My configuration is simple, I have a fixed IP from my ISP with fixed DNS servers. I have one computer connected via cable and one connected via wireless and a laptop that gets connected on occasion wirelessly as well. I also have an android phone that I sometimes have the networking turned on and sometimes not. That doesn't seem to be affecting the router either as I've lost connections under both circumstances. The only thing I have different is I clone the MAC address as the ISP has my IP linked to my old Linksys MAC.
The problem is I randomly lose connection to the internet, the home network is still up it's just the internet goes down. I could be on the computer or not, sometimes while browsing sometimes after I browse for a while sometimes before I get started. Fortunately its not happened during one of my online games but it has happened just after I log off the game. It usually happens a couple of times a day.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Drops Internet Connection Randomly?

Jan 6, 2012

my E2500 drops the internet connection randomly. I have no issues with wired or wireless access to the home network (sharing files, sharing printers etc...). To fix the problem I log into the router and do a soft reboot from the status page.
I posted this earlier and the only response I received was a cut and paste answer to make some changes to my wireless settings. Seriously doubting the relevance of the post I made the changes anyway and as expected nothing changed, the router still loses access to the internet without any warning. When I replied that I hadn't thought that that was the problem but that I HAD made the changes mentioned and as I expected it DIDN'T work I get no response.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Losing Internet Connection To WRT54G?

Jul 12, 2011

I have to reboot my router a couple of times per day because I lose WAN access.  This occurs with both the wireless and ethernet connections.  Basically, I see that I'm connected to the router, but have a self-assigned IP.  Power cycling the router does the trick.  I never had this problem before, so I'm wondering what's up.  The firmware has long been up to date.  Router version is 8.0.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Keeps Dropping Internet Connection?

Aug 1, 2012

Wired connection to the router works fine. But it drops all the wireless devices (PC, phone, tablet) multiple times each day, sometimes only 30-60 minutes after reconnecting. Power cycling the router "fixes" the router and allows reconnection. There are 2 topics in the FAQ section that looked good: Getting poor or no signal from a wireless routerTop causes of dropping wireless connection on a Linksys routerbut clicking on those does not bring up anything.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Doesn't Show Connection To Internet

Oct 19, 2011

We have a old Router and a new one(the Lynksys). The old one had problems with the Wifi so we bought this one. So when we connect This Router to the Modem it doesn't show connection to the internet. (The Setup fails because of this).But with the old one it does connect to the internet. So either my modem doesn't detect the new router or vice versa. So I am not sure why its not working since on the old one it works fine.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Internet Connection No Longer Working With WRT54G?

Sep 28, 2011

I have had a WRT54G V3 router working successfully for a number of years now with a couple wireless PCs through a cable modem with Comcast as my ISP.  All of a sudden yesterday, neither PC could access the internet.  No changes had been made to the router.
I contacted Comcast and they of course had me hard-wire one of my PCs into the cable modem.  That worked and I was able to access the internet.  However, when I tried to put the router back in place (in either a wired or wireless fashion), I could not access the internet.
I've tried following the online Linksys troubleshooting document ion.  The lights that should be lit on the router are lit.  I can access the router setup web page which shows the settings still intact.  I've tried going through the power sequencing to no avail.  Comcast says my router is the culprit of my problem, but I don't know why it would all of a sudden stop working.  My wireless printer still works so it detects a signal and my PC shows it's connected, but no internet access is possible.
What do I need to do?  Are there any other diagnostic tools available?  I'm out-of-warranty.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Network Drops Out / Power Reset Immediately?

Nov 25, 2011

Our wireless network has started to drop out periodically.  If we pull power and restore, the network immediately comes back up on all our our devices.  We have the WRT54G, and we have 2 PCs, 2 Macs, and 3 iPhones, and a wired home phone.  Normally there are not this many devices connected, but with everyone home for Thanksgiving and all these devices on the network we have started to see this issue.
Are there simply more devices than the router can handle?  Is one of the devices crashing the network for everyone?  What typically will cause something like this?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 And PS3 Drops Connection

Jan 28, 2013

I had a WRT54G2 router and began having trouble with my PS3.  It would connect for a few minutes then it would lose the internet connection.  I thought maybe it was the router so I have the EA4500 now.  The same problem is still happening.  I connected all of my other wireless devices to the EA4500 with no problems.  The PS3 connects and signs me in and then two or three minutes I'm disconnected.  I called Sony and Cisco for assistance but in vain.  The PS3 is showing my network has nearly 100% signal strength so that isn't a problem

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 Drops Connection Every Day?

Jul 4, 2012

I got an E3200-RM (refurbished).
I did not do a MAC Address Clone, when I connected it I just called my ISP and they enabled it. Internet connection with all devices right there, no problem.
Problem started next day, every day I have to do a hard reset because when I wake up I have no  connection with all devices (1 Ipad, 2 Iphones, 2 PCs, 1 Xbox 360, 1 PS3): My SSID is seen on the network but no device can connect to it.
I changed the Channels to manual as said on other threads, but didn't work.
In addition to that, when I try connecting my PC with the ethernet cable to the router -instead of wireless-, I have no internet connection on the PC and any other device that I try to reconnect to the router wirelessly can't connect anymore (have to do a hard reset again and unplug the ethernet cable).
the WRT54G worked perfectly for me...

Modem And Wireless Router Predictably Drops Internet Connection After Power Outage?

Jan 19, 2013

Immediately after a power outage, my internet connection predictably drops after a set period of time or usage. It is either after about 30 min or 5-15 mins of watching Netflix. I have a modem hooked up to a wireless router and use the network on my iPhone, laptop and Roku. Since the problem, I have dropped to just having my laptop connected but this has not worked. The wireless network will disappear after the 5 - 20 mins, the light on the modem and router will show no internet (all other lights are normal). Internet connection will be reestablished if I either unplug both the modem and the router (not just one or the other) OR if I unplug the ethernet line from the modem to the router and plug it directly into my laptop (the internet light on the modem will go from "off" to "on"). Despite internet connection working from transferring from the router to the laptop if I connect it back to the router, the internet lights goes off again (resolves upon unplugging and plugging modem and router back in). The internet has not yet dropped when it is physically plugged into my laptop.

I have tried the following:

-Powercycling (temp fix until it crashes again)
-Plugging into a different outlet (I cannot connect it to a different phone line, only have 1 with DSL. Also, I do not have phone service or cable, just internet via DSL)
-Resetting modem
-Resetting 2 different routers
-Calling ISP, their test of the modem was inconclusive

Again, my wifi does not see my network whenever the internet is dropped or the ethernet cord is unplugged from the modem. The outlets I have it plugged into has some type of electrical issue, two electrical devices have shorted out in the room they are in. I do not think this issue is electrical, everything seems to have constant power (unless the power outage shorted out something in the modem). Below are some details of my modem and router. I will provide any additional info requested. I will gladly buy a new modem but I want to see if it can be fixed first.

My modem: Westell
WireSpeed Dual Connect
Model: A90-210030-04

DSL Statistics
Line State: Up
Modulation: G.DMT-Mode
Data Path: Interleaved


Router: Linksys E2000 Internet Connection Type: Automatic Config - DHCP (I tried PPPoE and it never got a valid IP address from my ISP)

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Drops Connection Several Times A Day

Jan 23, 2011

I have a WRT120N router .It has something to do with turning on or re-introducing certain wireless devices into the area. When I come home with my iPhone & my wife is on her computer, suddenly the wifi stops. And vice-versa. It's ridiculous. I'm not a computer programmer but if I was I'm pretty sure this would be a no-brainer to fix. Especially if the company that paid me took pride in their products.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Two WRT54G And One DSL Connection?

Feb 19, 2013

Situation:  I have one Internet connection and I have need of two networks.  One filtered with OpenDNS and the other unfiltered.  I have a Speedstream DSL router provided by ISP for connecting to Internet.  I have two WRT54G's and would like to utilize them to form two networks.  The Speedstream is a router with a gateway address of
From that Speedstream (only one network plug) I would like to go to a 5port switch.  From that switch, I would like to configure the two WRT's to be two different networks (one using OpenDNS settings for filtering) with one having a 192.168.1.x address scheme and the other (no Internet filtering) having a 192.168.10.x scheme.  Both would have DHCP enabled for their networks and the Speedstream would have DHCP disabled.  There is not a need (at this point) to have the networks communicate.

It is on AUTO DHCP and gets a ip and everything.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Does Not Show Up In Connection

Linksys WRT54G in reset mode, that is no security, SSID broadcast  as linksys as it would be after pressing the reset button. When I go into the network and sharing center on my laptop running Vista and try to connect to the network it doesn't show up in the connect to a network dialog box.  Rescanning doesn't work.  My friends MAC locates the router with no problem. Disabling and enabling the wireless adapter and rebooting the laptop doesn't work.  I'm working right next to the router. If I go to Manage Wireless Networks and add add a new network manually  and input the network name (linksys) and Security Type disabled then I can connect to the router and all is well. I've set up a few routers and never seen this problem.
