    I configured the wireless of my router manually because I dont use the secure easy setup, but it just works for about 2 hours because after 2 hours that it was working then it stops working (because I dont have internet but my computer show that I have wireless and LAN) so I disconect my router for 10 seconds and then conect, and it works again for about two hours.... I dont know what configuration I did wrong or missing.

    Thank you..... I hope somebody can help me....

    what version of router is it, WRT54G v"x". if you recently purchased it its most likely a v6. Check the bottom of your router and let me know. Im 100% positive we can fix your problem :) ( as i had the same problem up until i fixed it )

    basically as you will find on this forum and p2p/torrent forums is that the WRT54G and the wrt54gs ( router i have, v6 ) suffer when used with torrent/p2p programs. The linksys firmware cant cope, if your confident with upgrading to a 3rd party firmware ( only takes about 10 minutes, that involves carefully doing each step ) then let me know. I tried to avoid updating my wrt54gs to 3rd party firmware but im soooo glad i did, p2p/torrents/web access/email all work perfectly now, no lock ups what so ever !

    Let me know mate and i will post a link to the tutorial i followed to fix my router ( its in english so i hope you can read well ). Since updating to 3rd party firmware ive downloaded about 10gb worth of stuff, that includes torrents and stuff from p2p apps, and havnt had to reset my router once. Now if i tried doing that with the standard linksys firmware ide be constantly rebooting and pulling my hair out.

    I downloaded the firmware from linksys page

    I downloaded the firmware from linksys I think is the most recent but when I try to install to the router, it stops working and I have to reset it.... and configure again Do you think is a problem if I dont have the most recent firmware installed??

    ignore the linksys firmware full stop, on your particular router its crap, your much better off with dd-wrt firmware, if your willing to upgrade to 3rd party firmware and have a hassle free router with everything working, let me know.

    everything you need to know is on that page :

    http://www.bitsum.com/openwiking/owbase/ow.asp?WRT54G5_CFE#h2


    Really easy to do, just scroll down the page til you see :

    For the WRT54G v5, v5.1, and v6 ONLY, then read on from there, follow each instruction and you will soon be running dd-wrt firmware on your router, much better :). If you are unsure about anything please let me know.

    modd1uk LI Guru Member

    yeah thats fine, 1.65mb. file all you need to do now is make sure u have all the files on that page.

    vxworks_prep_v03.zip
    vxworks_killer_g_v06.zip

    it should be fine now, you may want to adjust some settings like :

    IP Filter Maximum Ports to 2000

    TCP Timeout to 600

    UDP Timeout to 600

    Those options can be found in Administration/management at the bottom of that page.

    You should be fine then, thats the settings i have and my router is 100% ok, p2p/torrents work fine.

    Advantages are simple : You now have very good firmware instead of crappy linksys firmware, you can overclock your router ( wouldnt reccomend ), you can change active ip connections ^, the list goes on.
