I have a Linksys WRT54G v6 wireless router. I bought it back in August, I believe. I wasn't having too much trouble with it until January. My wireless connection became very iffy, so I upgraded the firmware...or tried to. I kept getting a message that the upgrade failed. So a couple of days later I tried again and it went through. But my wireless was still iffy.
Recently I reset the router, and I can barely get into the configuration page. I can't connect to the internet wirelessly or wired. I'm thinking I may need to get a new router, and I was just wondering if there is a router that's recommended. Or, is there any way to save the one I have?

Thank you!

Your router may still be under warranty. That would save you some money. I usually go with D-Link or Linksys just because they're available everywhere.

First of all, how is your Internet connection when it is plugged straight into the modem? Bypassing the router altogether...?

When I connect my desktop directly to the cable modem, my internet is just fine.
I did end up doing some more troubleshooting the other night. I ended up cloning the MAC on my desktop, and I was able to connect to the internet from the desktop through the router. I connected my laptop to the router also with an ethernet cable, and it worked. But once I tried to connect wirelessly, everything stopped working again.
