Linksys Wireless G WRT54G problem

Post by LFITQ » Sun Mar 04, 2007 3:56 pm

I'm posting this with a direct link to the comp.

It seems as though my router (mentioned above) doesn't want to work anymore.

The power light is on but so is the red DIAG light.

It won't read a connection no how. When I try to do a ipconfig it says the media is disconnected. The lights for the connections are ALL unlit.

I tried doing the firmware update but it keeps saying it can't connect to the router.

Am I now the proud owner of a black and blue, plastic brick with antennae?

LFITQ, what?s the status of router ?

Mine just gave up last night, in the middle of 5 gig bittorrent transfer... :?

I started losing the ports (intermittent connections) 1 by 1 over the last month.

Finally, no ports are working correctly; it's not a cabling issue, nor a network card issue, or config issue...I tried it with 3 pc's.

Reset with available BIOS on website...manufactory reset...nothing works or works 1/2 the time.

So looks like my 1/2 terabyte of bittorrents killed it.. :tease:

Colleague of mine had a similar issue, and dump it in the garbage and bought a D-Link on special at Best Buy, he doesn't have any issues since...looks like I?ll follow his advice.

On the back of the router is a reset button. You will need a bent paper clip etc. to push it. Sometimes that will correct the problem, whatever it is, but it also sets your router back to its default settings. This includes passwords, no wireless security etc. You might even need to do it two or three times before it takes. Having said that, it still may not help. On occassion, these beasts do go belly up and there is not much recourse. Something as simple as a power spike can sometimes be enough to do it. Give it a try, got nothing to lose.

Already tried it at least a dozen time. Freakin' Router ! :?

Must be the power spike we got over the last month, even if everything is on a powerbar.

It's already in the recycling bin at home, I'm not wasting another second on this ;)

Buying a new one and configuring it, will be less a pain than dealing withthis one.

Well better late than never. Ok SEVERAL months late but oh well.

XGamer, I had the same feelings. I tossed the Router. It was a brick.

I managed to scrounge up an old wired one (the same brand) and got it to work. But it wouldn't allow me to upload anything to the web. I would start to upload and then it would lose it's connection. I unplug the power from the router for a few seocnds, plug the pwoer back in and would be up and running again. Just not able to upload.

Downloaded the firmware upgrade and now it works perfectly. But the wireless one is still just a brick in the recyle bin.
