I think you stated that your router is from Linksys. Find the model number for your router.
Then, go to
Navigate to the page for your router
Download the router firmware

If the downloaded firmware is a folder that is compressed, right-click on the folder and select extract.

Go to your router's administration page

Click on the ''Administration'' tab
Click on ''Firmware Upgrade'' tab
Follow the instructions on the page.

That one.

If the firmware and calls to support don't work, pack it up as defective. Do this quickly!

Have you gone through enough steps to isolate the probem? When you loose signal, try connecting to your routers status page and check if you have an IP. You may have comm but no internet. Just connecting to the router will prove that.

Is it a cable modem? often a week signal with multiple in-house splitters can cause you to drop the signal from the ISP, often at high traffic times in your area. If this is the case a digital cable-ready distribution amplifier will help immensely.

In reply to: ISP?

my ip is working fine.
I think its with the frimware,the main problem now is have to reconnect to the router every 10mins or so.
Do you think the problem is really with the router firmware?

try new firmware

In reply to: yes

I have worked with many Linksys routers including the WRT54G. I strongly suggest that you upgrade the firmware if you haven't yet.

There currently are five versions of the WRT54G (V1, V2, V3, V4, V5). You need to download the firmware for the model you have.
