Welcome to Geeks To Go.

I had the same issue with my WRT54G a while back. It was solved by a firmware update. Here is the page to download the firmware: http://www.linksys.c...aypage=download.


It is very important that you follow the steps at the Linksys website gives correctly. Failure to do so can result in your router becoming a new paper weight.

Explain in a bit more detail exactly what is happening and how you are getting your connection back.

I just get kicked off and I am able to get back on right after I get kicked off. I think it might be my computer.

That is identical to the problem I had in which an upgraded firmware fixed. I do not know of any other solutions but hopefully someone else who does will drop in and help you out.

It worked perfectly fine on a different computer that I don't have anymore, but this one doesn't.

Ricy,

Check out the linksys forums, especially this thread:
http://forums.linksy...e...ding&page=1

I too use a linksys WRT54G and had connectivity problems until I simply changed the MTU (maximum transmission unit for a TCP/IP packet) from auto to a set value of 1492. It's a rather esoteric solution, but changing the MTU has helped many people with this router (including myself) as you will see from the above thread. Seems it's a bug in their firmware that even the latest firmware revisions still have.

Don't know if you're having the same problem, but going from auto to a fixed value of MTU does not hurt a thing, and it might only help at this point.
