why you haven't replaced it. You've put up with more than I would have. Sounds like you've exhausted the options. Get a new one.
Over 2 years ago I purchased a Linksys WRT 54G and it has never worked properly. The problem is that it disconnects after around an hour. The internet page will say page can?t be displayed and a error message in the bottom right hand corner will say something about being unable to find the network. Other times it appears to be connected but has a dns issue. I find that sometimes I need to restart the router and other times right click on the connection to select repair. Of course the problem just comes back again approximately an hour later. The problem gets weirder, to get the router to work again I have to do a factory reset and put the settings in again. What?s up with that! The router sits less than 10 metres away form my computer and there is no walls between them. I am running XP SP2 and my connection is cable with Telstra who use something called a heartbeat server.
To fix it I have tried the following.
Disconnected my portable phone.
Tried a laptop computer and it also disconnects after an hour.
Research ? Went to sites such as this to check if I have done anything wrong, I found nothing wrong with my configuration or anything else.
Spoken to Linksys about 10 times (In the technical support Instant messaging as I?m in Australia)
Linksys tried some different configurations and some other settings but it did not help. They would get me to try something and that would be it.
Did firmware upgrades but it did not help.
My question is Am I the only one this is happening to?
and Is there a resolution.
