WRT54G v5

I have a brand new WRT54G v5 wireless router and i am having troubles with my internet connection. I am able to access my pc's (LAN) but my pc's regularly loosing the internet connection's for some seconds and then the connection get back automatically. I ve tried firmware upgrade (1.01.0 linksys firmware) but the same, i did flash it using DDWRT (removed vxworks and upgrade to linux) but i have the same problem... I tried changing the MTU from Automatic to Manual and set the value to 1350 but nothing ... The problem persist...
Anyone who can help me out ??

Thank you

did you check status in the router ? it proberly dident get any IP address/dns from ISP.. or else do you have some kind of login to the internet then you must spesify that in the router by selecting PPPOE connection

something like this

or is it there you have the problem with internet. if thats not the problem i would have contacted the ISP and found out if its something they are doing.

I think you didnot configured the router to your ISP connetion..so from start reset completely your router and connect that ISP connetion to WAN port of your router then logiin to routerinterface in browser and configured the ISP detials like IP address /subnet mask/Gateway and DNS addresses ...all these detials from ISP...

Now on client side you are accessing the wireless network so ur laptop will detect the wireless network so configured properly and give the dns addresses from ISP or you are using Internal DNS server then ISP dns adresses in forwardes option and on laptop put hte primary dns address as ur internal dns server IP address .

For secured connection you can configure the Security Encryption (WPA-PSK) in router so only authorised person can access.

Check this procedure with onlyone machine means one machine and wirless router or you can use the wired connetion ( using cat5 cbale )connect onlyone pc to router and check then add onebyone to check any configuration settings problems with router or at pc side.


Good Luck

Check that you don't have DHCP being served up from two (or more) sources.  Your router has it enabled by default, do you have DHCP being done by something else on your network?

Iam telling you firstly check with your router and ISP is working fine are not..?

Check with one wired pc and configure that pc on router with static ip and cehck the internet is working fine or not..if yes then no problem to router or ur ISp then
next step goto DHCP configuration settings this also cehck with single machine after that also not working or you having the problem then your router having the problem ..take a replacement from hardware vendor.
