    Ok, I have a Linksys wrt54g and I have just 1 problem with it. I would like to know, how do you make it not disconnect my computer's internet after 24 hours. I really want it to always be connected and not disconnect ever single day.

    Please tell me how to.

    It depends on the type of connection provided by your ISP. For example, your router's PPPoE dialler has a Keep Alive function for DSL connection.

    However, no feature can override an ISP's network setup, for example, my ISP forces an IP change about every 7 days by forcing my DSL connection to disconnect (which will reconnect on most occasions)

    Its not the connection, its where you can choose to connect PCs and it has the options of how long to allow them to connect, how do u give them infinite time????!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

    That is why it is necessary to state one's question clearly!!!

    By default, your local network connection is managed by the DHCP server on your router. IP addresses are leased out to each client usually in 24 hour intervals. To change the expiry time to what you want, adjust the DHCP's Client lease time on your router.

    Just1Question, if DHCP lease time is the problem, your problem is most likely not with the WRT, as it is the client PC's task to renew it's leased DHCP IP address. When the client PC renews the lease, the DHCP server grants that PC another 24h, and the next day another 24h, and so on.

    Further, the WRT will not disconnect a PC because the IP address has expired. It's most likely your PC that disconnects itself.
