    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.

    The unit still has the original firmware (tried once to upgrade it, to a newer one, which I downloaded at Linksys webpages).
    Got the infamous "Upgrade are failed" (great grammar) :thumbup:
    Dont think that should have anything to do with my problem.

    The unit works with WLAN only (which Im using now)

    Firmware Version: v3.37.2

    Best regards

    Ha, the problem with the firmware upgrade i sthat it needs to be done via the cable (and hence the LAN port)!

    What is the router s/n? (i.e. What is the version of the router?)

    Connect he router by CAT5 cable, via one of its LAN ports. Factory Reset the router by depressing the button on the rear, holding for 15 seconds plus.

    Allow the router to reboot. Can you access If so, get hte latest version of the firmware from Linksys, or try DD-WRT (provided you don't have a v5 router).

    Thx for answer! :)

    I did try to update the firmware with cable connection. I wouldnt dare to try with WLAN, that would just be stupid of me :)

    Ill try it right away.. Im pretty sure its a v2, I remember I checked that before trying to upgrade firmware.

    But ill try again to reset it to factory settings, and try the dd-wrt firmware!

    again, thx!, ill let you know how it goes :thumbup:
