My Linksys router frequently stops wireless broadcasting

My Linksys WRT54GC (version2) model router frequently stops wireless broadcasting and I have to unplug and replug the power cable to connect again.
After some time, it again suddenly stops wireless broadcast until it's repowered.

I've been having this problem for over 2 weeks now and tried the latest firmware upgrade and resetted the router for countless times but couldn't solve the problem.

Anyone, has experience in this issue, has any reccomendation ?

Electronics do die . . .

Sounds like the transmitter is failing. Warranty? Use it.

Try the usuals.

Update the firmware and keep the settings SIMPLE. No mac filters, use WPA and don't hide that SSID.

And let the air get to all six sides.

Then swap it out.

My answers are mostly repeats. I will not edit them to fit exactly. Resets are ok but notice you didn't reveal your settings. Those that use no or WEP security often have your complaints.
