WRTP54G owners, I need your help

    I have the WRTP54G router that I brought to Europe so that I could make calls home cheaply. I don't have broadband setup yet, but I downloaded the .37 version of the firmware and was going to update it manually. The problem is that the router is continuously rebooting itself.

    And before you ask, yes, I have a wallwart that coverts the 220V to 12V 1A, so that's not the problem.

    I hope that some of you will do me a favor, especially if you still have version .18 of the firmware. Unplug the cable going to your cable/DSL modem and unplug the power. Wait a minute, and then plug the power back in and wait a few minutes. Does the router stay on or does it reboot about every 30 seconds?

    I've had a WRTP54G for about 4 days now, and I was in love with it... until I had this exact same problem. Although I wasn't trying to upgrade the firmware or anything - just randomly one day I come back from work and the router keeps resetting itself. I have tried everything I can possibly think of, from trying all connection configurations to trying to reset the router to default settings - no dice. The router just will not stay on for more than 5-6 seconds once fully booted.

    Sorry I can't help, CountBlah, but at least you know you're not alone.

    hox-ii, if you go through support and get a solution, please post it here. I'm now in Italy and it would be tremendously difficult to send my unit back to the states for a refund. I've heard good things about the 1.00.37 firmware version, so if this damn thing will stop rebooting, I can load it on there. It worked before I left the states.

    Sorry to bump an old topic, but I solved the problem. I was using an adapter that is labeled as having an output of 12V @ 1A, but it really was only putting out 900mA. When I tried another adapter that really was putting out 1A, the problem went away.

    Unfortunately, the "user/tivonpw" login doesn't work to update the firmware.

    However, if you Google "WRTP54G" or "Vonage WRTP54G" you will find that a lot of people have found help for their problems on the Vonage Forums.
