    Hi! :)

    Im sorry if this has been asked before, but I feel like I have google'd and searched these forums for ages. Cant find any answers to my problem.

    The problem is that my WRT54GS reboots if the LAN connections are beeing used. If I disconnect all RJ45 connectors on the back (except the Internet connection) the unit does NOT reboot it self all the time.

    If LAN connectors is used, the unit starts a "power cycle" (the power light blinks) after a few seconds, and never fully starts up, resulting in no IP's beeing issed by the linksys router.

    Best regards

    Does it happen right away if you plug something into the lan?
    does it happen on every port?
    does it happen if you have it plugged in on boot?
    does it reboot if you plug your internet into the lan (don't leave it like that, but you can try it to see if it's got something to do with your lan devices)
    does the wireless work?
    have you reset to factory defaults?
    how old is the router?
    if may just be a defective unit, you might have to RMA it
