    What disconnects? I am going to guess and say the wireless but what exactly are you having problems with?

    I am having the same problem, everytime someone tries to connect to my wireless network the Router will completely disconnect. My modem still has access to the internet (checked by plugging in directly to the modem after the connection drops), however the Router does not. I cannot even access the Router config page thru my browser, I have to manually reset it by disconnecting the power and rebooting the Router. This is very annoying since it happens multiple times in the morning and the evening since many of my neighbors carry PDA's with Wifi which try to connect to any available network. I am also unable to use one of my desktops and one of my laptops since they are wireless and shutdown the Router everytime they connect.

    I have spoken to Linksys tech support about this a couple of times and get the same answer from them EVERYTIME......please download the latest firmware AGAIN and update your Router. I have done this 6 times now and the problem persists.

    Info
    Router WRT54GS v. 6
    Firmware v1.52.0 Jan 16, 2007 (Yes I am aware that the v. on the website says Feb 9, 2007, however when you install it and look in the Router setup page it lists as the Jan date.)

    Has anybody found a fix for this problem?

    My connection was working fine for a few weeks, but it's back to the same old problems now.

    Design flaw? Maybe that's why Linksys is up to V8 already.

    I have the same problem with 2 WRT55AG's
    They are a piece of junk. They cost me 125 euro each.
    I'll never buy a linksys product again.

    My WRT54GL recently died and with the junk Linksys is currently putting out I bought a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54. Flashed it with DD-WRT, works fantastic.

    I run... about 20 WRT54GL units and it's the finest unit in it's price range. Easy to add serial and JTAG ports, handles wide voltage range, easy to port by many firmware projects since it's widely documented.

    Does Buffalo have these things? Not last I checked.

    I have a Buffalo G54 I use out in the garage as a repeater. I got nothing against it I just don't see where it's any better, and it's darn picky about voltage I couldn't get it to run in a passive PoE setup.

    I am not a big fan of DD-WRT anymore, seems like BS is gradually turning it into SveaSoft 2.0.

    I was not saying Buffalo is better than Linksys, I still use my WRT54Gv3.1 ad very happy with it. Local Best Buy didn't have a WRT54GL in stock so I bought the Buffalo. Network was down and needed to get it back up ASAP. I was just stating that the Buffalo was working fantastic. The signal is much stronger than the GL was. Wasn't trying to flame Linksys.

    Sorry if it came across that way.

    I'm not trying to flame Buffalo either. Got nothing against them other than named defects which probably don't matter to other people.

    Original poster would be well served with EITHER product, after sending the v6 back.

    It is a NEVER-ENDING source of annoyance to me to explain the fork of the WRT54G units after the v4. One fork actually continues the original great lineage. The VxWorks product which inherited the model number in submarine fashion, to me that's a real problem. I can't tell you the number of times I've recommended someone SPECIFICALLY that they need to purchase a GL unit, and they come back to me later complaining that they bought a WRT54G and it doesn't work very well. Well yeah they didn't look for the L on the model number like I told em. I'd have been much happier if they had called the new product the WRT54V instead of trying to conceal the cheapening change they made.

    But I digress....
