    I've been on these forums as a guest for a few days trying to read as many threads as possible in order to prevent the need to start a new thread about my issues.
    This is unfortunatly innevitable.
    As most 2.2 WRT54G users, I've been having horrible connection stability due to many reasons. It first started under high load, then it just started being random, then it stopped for a few hours and started to disocnnect again every minute or so.
    When the disconnects occured, there were 2 types: either I would be online 5-30 seconds later, or I had to reset my modem.
    Now the problem isn't this anymore. I tried numerous things including plugging my modem to my old wired linksys router which in turned uplinked to the wrt54g. After this operation however, when I plugged my router back directly to the modem, I can't access
    I took a guess: Perhaps I changed its ip by force? Because under my network config, I only get 24.*.*.* addresses. So I can't be going through the router could I?
    I would just like to access my setup on the wrt54g now. That's all I'm trying to figure out for now. Could anybody help?
    I tried unplugging it for 5 minutes then plugging it back in.

    I'm currently plugged into the router, but as mentioned, my ip is a 24.*.*.*. So for some reason I'm not even going through the router, am I?!

    I appreciate any help given to me in the shortest delays possible as my other wireless computer depend on this.

    Other additional information: I run winXP Pro SP2, and Linux Ubuntu release.

    EDIT: I used to run the latest firmware, then decided to change to the ewrt release of the firmware, which made the connection somewhat better but still not very stable at all.

    for some reason no reset was working until today. After about 50 resets the router is now pinging and working.
    Thanks anyways!
    I have yet to test the stability now :eek:
